We greet our fourth mother in the series in the lovely town of Helsingør, about 50 minutes north of Copenhagen. In a semi-detached house on a cul-de-sac and with views reaching as far as Sweden, lives 23 year old Anna Engstrøm with her boyfriend and son Edgar. It is her hometown and she is happy here. With her mother closeby, good vintage shops and Louisiana and the Maritime Museum only a short drive away, we can’t see any reason why she shouldn’t be.
Her serene nature is reflected in her home: all the rooms are painted in muted colours such as sand, nude and light yellow, there are soft rugs and carpets and it also shows her having a great eye for vintage finds, a hobby she has recently turned into a small business called Vieille.
Can you tell us a bit about your style?
We love how you have created a little safe haven for Edgar with the playtent.
Can you recommend any nice places in Helsingør?
I love the café called “Lagoni” in Helsingør and all of our 2nd hand stores where I’ve really done a lot of great buys for both me, Edgar, Allan and our home . We also love Kronborg! And the lovely cafe strandvejsristeriet located just beside Kronborg.
Also, Aarstiderne in Humlebæk where we have coffee and do our grocery shopping every Sunday.
What makes you happy?
Before Anna went on pregnancy leave, she worked for a PR company where she was in charge of their Social Media and email communication. She is unsure whether she will return, but we know this “old soul”, as Anna calls herself, will be succesful at whatever she does. Her calmness and down-to-earth personality make her come across wise beyond her years.
Thank you so much for having us, Anna.
