A Striking Mid-Century Inspired Danish Home



Wow – I can’t believe it’s actually the end of the week. It’s been getting darker by the day in Sweden which makes it almost impossible to get out of bed (and we’re bad at the best of times – guh!). When I was doing research for my Lagom book (see also the US and French version), I discovered only 10% of us are natural early risers – are you one of them? If not I feel your pain – at least we have two days of lie-ins ahead – yasss! Anyway. On with today’s tour. And I’ve got the most lovely, relaxed, Danish home to share with you. Birgit (also known as Fraubitte) has an expert eye at discovering all things mid-century and retro. Her home is full of treasures, set against a  striking backdrop of black and blue-green accents. Birgit loves to share snapshots of her home on her delightful instagram feed which is also peppered with pictures  of the Danish landscape, travel, design and art. Let’s take a peek inside Birgit’s world!

I love all her mid-century Danish furniture so much –  just how striking does the teak look against the back wall?! 
I also think the colours in the bedroom make a pretty combination.
Is there anything that you’re loving about this space?
If you’re looking to achieve a smiliar look, I find Etsy a great place source for mid-century furniture including dining chairs, credenzas and mirrors (I’ve had my eye on an asymmetric mirror ever since I saw one in this Danish home – aren’t they lovely?)
If you fancy getting a little more Danish inspiration this weekend check-out this archive… one of my favourites…
Have a great weekend and see you Monday!
PS Don’t forget to vote for My Scandinavian Home in the Domino Design Blog Awards (category ‘Best International Design Blogs’) if you have the time – it would make my day!
