From the moment I stepped into Stine and Jes’s Frederiksberg apartment, I felt the urge to take sneaky pics for decorating inspiration. Luckily I had a legitimate excuse for documenting their decor; thank you, Scandinavia Standard!
Given how classic the place looks, it’s a surprise to learn that many of the furnishings are affordable, decorated with thrift shop finds, DIY creations and family heirlooms. As Stine gave us a tour of the apartment, Rebecca and I were thrilled by how economical her decor was. Stine purchased the fabulously retro yellow sofa at a Copenhagen loppemarked (flea market) for just 50kr; that’s about 10 dollars! The apartment is also filled with souvenirs from the time they spent in Australia, including a kangaroo fur and a vintage surveyor’s map of my home state, Queensland. Her eye for unexpected details throughout the apartment adds personality and bucketloads of hygge.
Scroll through our pictures to get a sense of Stine and Jes’s funky but truly Scandinavian style. Thanks to them both for having us!
