The Timeless Danish Home of A Jewellery Designer & Vintage Furniture Collector



Oh yay - I do believe it's Friday! Finally! Do you have fun plans?! We're heading up to the west coast to work on a new renovation which I'm so excited about - but of course, not really relaxing (all will be revealed next Sunday!). Before we all shoot off for the weekend, I wanted to share one final home tour. And it's a beauty! Welcome to the Copenhagen home of Anders Forup, a jewellery designer and vintage furniture dealer, his partner Nina and their adorable babba (*kiss those cheeks*!). Needless to say, the home is teeming with incredible Scandinavian design classics including the Arne Jacobsen Ant chair, Hans J Wegner Peacock Chair and the Skultuna Lily candlestick holder* to name but a few. The furniture, art, and lighting shine against a backdrop of white and soft, mid-blue (when I said this shade was set to big, I wasn't kidding!). Nora and Laura of Our Food Stories paid a visit and snapped these lovely pictures.





Oj oj oj (as they say in Sweden) this space is beautiful! I am so in love with the blue shade in the bedroom - possibly my favourite room in the house (but it was a narrow squeak - the whole house is pretty fabulous!).
It's also one of those spaces which feels timeless - it could look like this in 10-20 years and still feel current. I guess, that's the beauty of classic furniture (especially Scandinavian pieces which were designed to withstand the test of time), don't you think?
Did anything stand out to you?
In case you'd love a little more Danish inspiration for the weekend (or planning on. visiting Copenhagen anytime soon), Anders shared these tips:

I'll love you and leave you (BTW my Swedish husband thinks this is a really weird phrase to write on the blog - but in the UK it's a perfectly normal saying - does it sound strange to you?) with these fabulous danish homes:
