Why, hello there! It’s miserable outside today and probably never really going to get light, but I don’t mind because it’s my biiiiiiiiiiirthday! Now, I know you’re not really meant to make a song and dance about these things, but you know, life’s short and I actually really do like to sing (not very well) and dance (even worse) each year on this day!! It kicked off beautifully with a surprise ‘full english breakfast’ (no easy feat in Sweden, and the man and my girls nailed it!!) so things are going exceedingly well….. Anyway, I digress, I’ve prepared a post featuring the most fabulous Danish apartment for you today. Owner, Anne Aarsland is exactly the same age as me (that young? I hear you say!). The only difference is that she lives and works in Copenhagen and is “an astronomer with a liberating legendary approach to painting.” Anne’s work is characterised by stripes, dots and triangles in all angles and constellations, using repetition and abstract pattern formations to develop and change the shapes and can be seen throughout the living space. On with the tour!

Aaaaah, what a great home! Anne’s art totally makes the space, don’t you think?! – and rightly so!

The high ceilings, spacious rooms and general style reminds me a little of the home of Karen Maj Kornum who’s home I posted about here and here  (and also featured on the front cover of  my book The Scandinavian Home). What do you think?

Get the look: Anne’s artwork and limited edition paintings, saucer pendant, AJ floor lamp, wishbone chair, Artek chair, Ligne Roset Togo sofa.

You can follow Anne’s latest projects and see more shots of her home and studio over on Instagram

If you’d like to see more artist’s homes today you’ll love this relaxed, vintage style home,  an artist’s studio and home in Stockholm and a former artist’s studio converted into a beautiful home – makes me wish I was a little better at painting!!

Have a lovely day!!

PS – I received the best birthday surprise  – My Scandinavian Home won Best International Design Blog in the first ever Domino Design Blog Awardsweeeeeeee!
