BASIS with fronts in green and handles in natural oak. The countertop is made from natural oak

Tikkie Elsøe, the blogger at, lives with her husband Mads Elsøe who works at Politiken and their daughter Mollie Elinor. The couple, who live in Frederiksberg in Copenhagen, chose their new kitchen in a mint green color from Reform.

For this couple, aesthetics is important – in fact more important than whether an item is made by a famous designer or found in a flea market. The light in the photo on the right is from the French store Beau Marche in central Copenhagen, the lava tiles are from Made a Mano and the small shelf is from Frama.

The couple is very interested in art and the lithograph on the left is by Cathrine Raben Davidsen and a gift from Mads to Tikkie. The chair from Thonet was found in an antiques shop and the pastel-colored carpet from Stilleben is a wedding gift to the couple.

The color of the new kitchen fronts was precisely what the couple wanted; “The cold mint green color in combination with the warmth from the wood handles and the countertop play quite well together. It was a long process to find the exact mint green color, and we looked at several color samples. We didn’t want it to be too warm, or too blue,” says Tikkie Elsøe.
