SUMMER HOME WITH A NEUTRAL VIBE IN DENMARK

This is the summer home of a fashionable Danish couple.  North of Copenhagen in Zealand, this cabin of sorts has got a chic rustic vibe.  All of the right touches to blend into the natural surroundings but just the right touch of modern comfort.

The couple, owners of the Danish fashion agency Grenaa Buchard, took on the challenge of combining his masculine style with her more feminine decor sense.  He likes clean lines and simplicity.  She likes delicate touches and small vignettes.  She puts out flowers and organizes small collections around the house...he tends to make things more streamline.  This his/her decor dilemma actually ended up working out - the couple came up with a cool country home that has a bit of warm retro vibe - a neutral zone for him AND her.

I like. Clean, simple, not pretentious at all, good visual textures on the walls and floors (love the wide plank rustic hardwood floors) and classic mid century modern furniture.

What might you add to this country home?  How would you solve the design dilemma of "his and hers"?  I would force in a graphic COCOCOZY pillow (or maybe two) of course!

Can't believe Summer is almost over.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. definitely adding your pillows, but I would alsochange the light fixtures. They just look a little dull.

  2. I'm with you-it could use a little more pop. A CocoCozy pillow would do the trick. But mostly I love it.

  4. lovely home. i think it needs some greenery...maybe some potted trees or indoor plants? feels a little lifeless...but that could be easily changed.
