In Denmark, A Cosy And Eclectic Home Full of Art

A few moments ago, about a month’s worth of rain came down in five minutes. I kid you not. Luckily, I’m working from home, all cosy and dry – and wondering if I’ve left a window open somewhere. In Denmark, another home was getting a soaking: det lille grå hus (the little grey house). Despite the weather and (pretty) grey facade, Helle’s living space in Silkeborg is far from grey. The Dane is driven by “a love for beautiful things and fine materials” rather than designer pieces. Despite this, some classics have snuck in by way of flea market finds, family heirlooms “or simply because a chair is so beautiful it’s hard to resist, despite being by Børge Mogensen”. The eclectic interior also includes pieces from IKEA and Ilva as well as DIY solutions and lots and lots of wonderful art. Welcome inside the cosy Danish home of Helle, husband Kurt and their children Eve and Herman!

What a pretty home! 
I love how Helle has simply followed her heart and chosen pieces for their aesthetics rather than who they’re made by, it’s given the space so much soul.
Is there anything you love in particular about this home?
You can see more of Helle’s home on her homepage and instagram @detlillegraahus and a load of other beautiful Danish homes in this archive. 
Got to love Danish style!
