Scandinavian House Feature

This is the lovely home of Line Fiil Anderson. I first discovered her through Instagram last year. She is an artist and her abstract paintings caught my eye right away. Not only does she work in a style that I enjoy, her pieces are often styled in her home which allowed me to see vignettes of her impeccable style. Located in Randers, Denmark; Line describes her home as a typical Danish home built in the 1970's. A unique thing about the structure is that it was used as an exhibition home for the first two years. Line and her boyfriend purchased it from the original homeowners in 2009. Since that time they have started a family here and come to love the space they call home. Her sons, Anton and Bertram, are similar ages to my two daughters, and keep her busy when she is not working or in her studio creating.

Before we go inside I want to share some photos of the gorgeous courtyard and terrace with you.

The layered textiles really make this outdoor space feel like an extension of the interior. I love the simplistic style often seen in Scandinavian design & Line has mastered it. This Hazel tree looks like a sculpture itself.

Line loves spending time here and having friends and neighbors over to sit and enjoy a glass of wine with. There is a river nearby that she often walks to, finding a lot of inspiration for her paintings from nature.

"We loved it from the time we stood in the hall – and it just felt like home, even before we saw the rest of the house." As a person who enjoys architecture and interior design I am usually drawn to a space for a specific reason. In this home it is a combination of the furniture, art and accessories that speak to me. We have similar taste and love a great bargain!

 "I love to be surrounded by things that not everyone has. I am drawn to the northern European style in combination with Bauhaus and Eastern/Middle East ethnic things and objects." So many pieces in the home have a story to go with them, my eye is continuously travelling from one thing to another.

"The first furniture my grandmother bought (before she met my granddad) were designs from some of the greatest designers/architects in Denmark from the 1950´s. I have inherited some chairs and a cabinet from her. I love furniture (especially teak) from the 1950´s but also German Bauhaus interior." The eclectic collection of artwork throughout the home is amazing. I will never tire of a good gallery wall, we have several in our own house. The original stained glass is the perfect addition to this corner. Those colours make me smile.

A great spot to relax and enjoy a drink. I am so jealous of that chair!

When they moved into the house they decided to renovate the kitchen.  Line loves to cook and it was a small dark room that was not very inspiring. By tearing down the wall that divided the two rooms, they created a large open concept space full of natural light. Now they have this fantastic space for cooking, entertaining and allowing the boys to play.

No hardware has been added to the cabinetry, this helps to achieve a modern and timeless design. The addition of plants and warm wood tones help the space feel welcoming to friends and family.

A view of the dining area from the family room. The boys Wheely Bug is ready for a ride! How great are the 4 pieces of original art? Each member of the family created their own masterpiece with paint and a straw. Simple modern frames create a unique collection.

A great piece of furniture can not only anchor the corner of a room, but also add as extra storage in a small space. Cupboards and drawers are great at hiding away kids toy's & books when not in use. I'm an expert a hiding clutter, the built-ins in our living room are full of my daughters collections and craft supplies.

I love this corner and the simple white shelving that displays some of Line's favourite collectibles. I have always wanted a Danish mid century bird, these two caught my eye as soon as I saw the photo. Talk about a statement light fixture! You are not going to find that at a big box store folks. Gotta love a house with a stack of interior design magazines to browse, the European ones are always my favourite...even if I can't understand what they say.

"We are going to Berlin for a summer holiday and I hope to find some stuff at one of the wonderful flea markets in the city. I love going to flea markets here in Denmark, to buy unique objects for our house." This eclectic home is full of treasures, I don't think I can pick a favourite room it's all so good. I also love to thrift and find the treasure of the hunt so exciting. Once my husband & I travelled to Pittsburgh, instead of dreaming about seeing Falling Water the next day I was thinking about chairs I had seen earlier at the Salvation Army. I know right...my husband is a good man & we went back for them.

This is styled perfectly. You can't go wrong with black and white, and that pop of yellow! I have a thing for font. I'm one of those people.

Line's grandfather was a cabinet maker and hand crafted this chair for his wife. After she passed, this family heirloom became a special addition to Line's home. Her colourful artwork makes this corner in the family room so welcoming.

Line's home is the perfect mix of old and new, and has a cozy/casual vibe. Collectibles, artwork and furnishings are influenced by Scandinavian design and have me wanting to head to the closet flea market. Check out more of her incredible artwork at https://www.instagram.com/linefiil/
