My mum’s home, photo by her.
My mother and I are similar in a lot of ways; looks, giggle fits, dreams, habits and hand movements. But where we tend to differ greatly is in home decor. She’s very Danish, I’m very French/Shabby/Modern/Bare.
Her flat above is just so her and so Danish with artwork everywhere (and placed low), embroidery done by family, fresh flowers, teak furniture, hundred year old things mixed with new, and of course a Danish Flag.
My home, well, you’ve seen a lot of my home. The colours are softer, there’s not as much, and I just can’t handle anything teak. We live our styles and enjoy each other’s when we visit. And when we visited family last year in Denmark, I re-discovered how every home is just like hers. Filled with things in an artful, careful way. Never cluttered but never bare. Always filled with stories, artwork and family. And always, always filled with food. So very Hygge.
