i’m always in awe when an email arrives in my inbox saying something like, “we did a ‘photoshoot’ this weekend (luckily the sun was shining ;-) i hope you can use some of the pictures.” use them? grace and i were totally blown away! but really, we shouldn’t have expected anything less from the founder and creative manager of ferm living, trine andersen, a woman whose visit to a clairvoyant (just for fun), combined with a longtime dream, turned into a successful enterprise incorporating her passion for graphic design, interiors and fashion. today she and her husband martin graciously open the doors to their danish home (which acts as an incredible window to danish design). and if what you see below isn’t enough, you can check out more, full-sized images here. [thanks trine!] -anne
