My place

Our home is featured in the Danish online version of IKEA family live magazineIt was so much fun taking part - here is a preview of some of the pictures I took, and a link so you can see for yourself. Hope you speak danish :)
SO what do you think - can't wait to hear!? What you expected, or perhaps slightly mad:) As you know I am a lover of all things found on flea markets, on our travels, and I spend loads of time upcycling the stuff we have. We love it here, it is so much fun.

  3. Congratulations on the feature, Anya! I am happy for you! Your home looks very charming, comfortable and full of personality. Love the bright and airy feeling! I really like the watercolor artwork above your sofa and the houses on the dresser/ cabinet.

    I have been wanting to get the Kartell coffee table for the longest time but I am afraid it might be too small/ too low. How's the quality? Is it good? Does it scratch easily?

    Have a lovely day, my sweet friend!

    1. Hi Jessie - the Kartell is a low /small table but big enough (we have a low sofa though). Does it scratch - well with 2 kids, it does, but it doesn't really show that much, I still love it.
      Thanks for the sweet words,
      Ax

  4. Hi Anya this a great opportunity to be featured in IFLmag... really lucky you... I love your place and there is just something I have been surprised with... it's the fact that all your windows are wood color... and not white!... may be just a personal taste, but living in northern europe country I guess it could give you some more daylight inside... Hope you don't take "shadow" with my remark!
    Have a nice wednesday dear ANya

    1. Hi Lau, we live in a place designed by a danish artist who have selected every single item personally - the wood is specifically picked, and we are not allowed to change/paint anything like that at all. :)
      (as you can see we have loads of windows- like a fish bowl ha ha) but I agree with you, it would let in more light -which would be nice in the winter.
      Hope you have a fab day,
      Ax

  16. Anya,

    I made a mistake and deleted my first comment so I'm re-writing it. Your home looks exactly how I expected it to look based on what I've read in your posts. I love how bright it is with all the pops of color throughout. It has an eclectic and bohemian feel to it which I LOVE! Congratulations on your feature in IFL magazine, you certainly deserve it! :)

    Btw: I adore the girls room...it is so dainty and sweet! :)



    xoxo

    Congratulations, what a nice piece (the little I could make out of it:)

    Great photos and how nice to see your home. Beautiful!

    I have the same Kartell Panier, mine, of course, is in light olive green (colourliving:)

    Love the photos of the family.

  19. Wow, this is so great! A few thoughts:

    How did you get chosen for this?

    I love your home, just love it. It's modern and shabby chic, it's got more than one theme going and that's my favorite kind of style.

    I love the rounded wall that you have pictures on.

    The girls room is beyond magestic.

    I love the pictures.

    Anya, I saw that you said I took great photos. I have never been told that before so I thank you. I love Ikea by the way. Great post and congratulations.

  26. I love it! It feels homey and 'real'; also edgy, but not too-too if you know what I mean. Definitely seems to suit you! How fun that you were featured!!! =)

  28. Hej Anya,
    Jeg har lige set billederne fra jeres hjem i IKEA magasin. Hold nu op I bor lækkert! Særligt blev jeg helt vild med dit sofabord - det der runde i gennemsigtigt plastik(?) Kan du mon fortælle, hvor det er fra?

  30. Anya, I loved all of this! What you did with the Hyllis shelving units helped me figure out how to add additional storage space to my very small kitchen. I even mentioned how great I thought it was in my own blog. Thank you!
