Secondly we are so excited to tell you about our second mother called Kit Borne.
Kit is a pedagogue and mother to two adorable little girls, Olivia and Annabell, and she has kindly invited us into her home and family life.
Kit lives in the family friendly neighbourhood Frederiksberg. A long time ago the building opposite her apartment burnt down, giving this family of four a beautiful view of Copenhagen’s rooftops.
She has filled her home with muted colours such as grey, off white and sand, making it a warm and comfortable place to visit. There are design classics such as Arne Jacobsen’s floor lamp, Kaare Klint’s Safari chair and Lyngby vases but also more contemporary accessoiries and a few inherited pieces.
Kit, could you tell us a little bit about what inspires you most in life?
The biggest inspiration in my life is my little family and especially our two beloved girls.
Annabell and Olivia make life special and inspire me every day. To see them grow, say their first words, take the first steps in life, our many nice talks and us playing together is a huge source of inspiration. On a more platonic level; I also get inspired by Instagram but I do always try to maintain my own sense of style.
What do you wish for the girls’ future? Is there anything in particular?
I want to provide as many good experiences for them as I can, I want to help them grow as individuals and for them to always feel like they have someone to fall back on when they need it.
What are your favourite brands?
My favorite brands are slightly divided. Brands like Zara, Arket and Serendipity Organics are really good to buy for everyday life at home or in kindergarten. But I also have a love for the brands Caramel and Babe & Tess for the more special occassions.
Where do you like to shop and why?
I shop online when it comes to brands like Zara and Arket because it’s easier than entering their very often big, and sometimes impractical stores. When I do visit stores, the most important thing for me is that I feel at ease. Soft music, a friendly smile and a helpfullness make for a pleasant atmosphere. I love stores that have created more of a universe for both mother and child.
What does your ideal day look like?
My ideal day consists of nothing more than being together. We could go for a walk and maybe have lunch or something to eat but just to be together, to me, is what makes any day perfect.
Thank you Kit, for allowing us in, sharing your dreams and wishes! We can honestly say we have never met such a smiley baby as your little girl. We could have shot a thousand pictures of her!
