Bold patterns and colours infuse the stylish retro-meets-modern family home of Ferm Living founder Trine Andersen

Naturally, August’s bedroom is a showcase for Trine’s designs. One wall is covered with Fifties-style blue wallpaper patterned with elephants, pandas, foxes and cats – a collaboration with design company Darling Clementine. Heaped on the day bed is an appealing mound of soft toys from the Ferm Living collection – an octopus, an owl, robots and a snake – as well as cushions and blankets handknitted by Trine’s mother. A soft toy guitar, with car-patterned fabric, leans against one wall – sure to satisfy any child’s inner petrolhead and rock star. “It’s brilliant for pillow fights,” says Trine. Two emerald green robot wall stickers keep each other company under one window sill, while high up in the other window are two fun mobiles where colourful birds are perched on branches. The floor is strewn with August’s toys – among them a Ferm Living doll’s house, a simple cardboard design with rooms patterned with groovy wallpaper. “August will play with the doll’s house if Martin and I join in too, but he’s really more of a truck guy,” says Trine. You can guess that, not just from August’s big yellow toy truck, but also from the colossal picture of a yellow cement mixer that hangs on the wall. “That was taken by a friend of ours in New York and we had it blown up onto a huge canvas,” says Trine. “We thought it would be cool for a boy’s room.”
