About

Do you like Scandinavian design with its minimalistic spaces and furniture, but at the same time you like to add details in color, patterns, textures, and ethnic elements from the maximalist decor of Bohemian style?

Then Scandiboho is your style!

I hope to inspire you to create beautiful spaces at home if you have a passion for natural materials, patterns, textures, plants and flowers, folk art, crafts, natural light and the Scandinavian concept of coziness or “hygge”.

You will also find a section about folk art, especially from my country Peru. I believe in the importance of contributing to preserve the knowledge of their traditional art, as well as the story and meaning of each of their works.

Why the blog is called La casa de Freja?

Written in Spanish because it is my mother tongue, it means Freja’s house. The house is our sanctuary, “our special place” where we feel safe and that reflects what we are and what we live. And Freja is a Nordic goddess and the name of our daughter.

Meet Fiorella

Hola! I’m Fiorella, a Latina (Peruvian) mom, architect and lighting designer living in Denmark with my husband Tonny and our 2 small children: Freja and Thiago. Here we are creating our bicultural family and home: traditions, cultures, food and languages from our countries: Peru and Denmark.

Living far from my country was the starting point to reconnect with my cultural heritage through its folk art and handicraft. Besides having studied my master’s degree here in Denmark, it allowed me to learn the very essence of Scandinavian design, to appreciate it and be passionate about it. But always with a bohemian touch, I cannot live without color and patterns. Without my fuchsia…

My love for our two countries encouraged me to write the decor blog “La casa de Freja”. A fusion of our favorite decorative styles Scandinavian and Bohemian: Scandiboho (with a touch of Latin color) And this is also the way we are decorating our house.

Welcome to La casa de Freja!

COLLABORATORS OF THE BLOG

Alexandra Saenz

Alexandra-aboutHello! My name is Alexandra, I am Peruvian, I am 23 years old and I’ve been in a loving relationship of approximately 5 years with interior design, my passion. I like to say that design is not a jealous love because it allows you to develop yourself in arts, culture, and literature. You can find it on textures and nature. For that reason, I call our relationship, a relationship of love and freedom. 

On the other hand, writing has always been something that drives me crazy. So now, thanks to Fiorella I will be able to enjoy my two passions together here at La Casa de Freja, writing about what I love: interior design!
