Artist Julie Wittrup Pladsbjerg has moved home quite a few times – each time weaving her magic with her unique sense of style. I have featured all three of Julie’s Danish homes – starting with her flat in Aarlborg when she was a student (it’s hard to forget the purple bike, right?), followed by the flat on the ground floor which she shared with her partner Mads and daughter Vanilla. 

And today, I’m excited to feature the family’s latest home which Julie and Mads have been transforming into their family ‘forever’ home with two children in tow.

It’s so fun to see the transition over the years, and seeing her style develop and morph into a mature and elegant living space, yet still bearing the signature Julie trademarks: pops of colour, playful touches and an eye for detail. 

Let’s take a look inside! 

In the kitchen, Julie has installed a Reform kitchen (expect to see a lot more dark wood in Scandinavian homes moving forwards) and a beautiful light from NUAD
One of the big trends I witnessed at the international fairs in Germany last week (Domotex and IMM Cologne) was the mix and matching of different wood. Dark, light, mid wood – combine any way you like! 

The pair have put in a tremendous amount of work to renovate the house. I couldn’t resist sharing the picture below to show how the kitchen looked during the building project. 

Compared to how it looks now….

The L-shaped kitchen also includes a dining area. The walls have been decorated with a beige shade from the up and coming danish paint brand Color Stories and sheer pink curtains from curtain.dk

The table bears a checkered pattern – which has been a big trend in Scandinavia for a while now. 

A wicker bench provides a spot for magazine, books, flowers and some of Julie’s art

How cute are the little glass doorknobs by Danish artist Nina Nørgaard? It’s such a pretty way to upcycle and personalise a vintage piece! Loving all the handmade ceramic cups too! 
The hallway has been decorated with ‘Sibylla’ wallpaper from UK based company Living Quarters. Wallpaper has been making waves in Scandinavian homes for a while now which is an exciting development I think!

A large antique patchwork quilt from Daisy and Beulah fills ones of the walls in the kitchen. At the nordic fair Formland last summer I noticed a lot of patchwork and embroidery, and it’s exciting to see it take shape in homes like Julie’s – the embroidery in particular is central to Julie’s own work. 

A fabulous Ekstrem chair by Terje Ekstrøm awaits on the landing. 

The brown / light blue colour combination is a big trend right now in the world of interiors – as is pops of green. 

A bed by Karup works with the dark wood floor in the master bedroom. 

If you love Julie’s style, you’ll love her upcycled or handknitted art – here’s a glimpse of her studio and one or two of her pieces. All her latest work can be found here

Julie’s home and art have really brightened up a grey snowy day here in Malmö, Sweden. I hope they have also put a spring in your step and got your week off to an inspiring start too! 

Is there anything that stood out to you in particular? If so, please do share in the comments below!
