Anna’s Deliciously Danish Haven

Name: Anna (and her urban chickens)
Location: St. Paul, Minnesota

Anna’s quaint home screams “hygge” as soon as you walk in. “Hygge” explains Anna “is distinctly Danish.” There is no translation in English, but it can be best described as a feeling of warmth & coziness; usually the result of candlelight, flowing wine, great company, and delicious food.

And that cozy, warm feeling envelops you like a mothers hug upon entering Anna’s beautiful home. After graduating from the University of Minnesota, Anna decided to move to Copenhagen, Denmark as an architecture and design intern for the Danish Institute for Study Abroad. The time that she has spent in Denmark has very much influenced her style. From her framed Danish posters, to her Marimekko textiles, to her Littala votives, Anna’s place screams Scandinavian design.
