This house in Denmark has a fantastic combination of minimalism, earthy and coastal-inspired decor and accents, and a moody atmosphere. It doesn’t just look like a home, but more like a work of art, in full harmony with nature.
The house was created by Norm Architects; The landscape offers picturesque lakes, forests and sandy beaches. The architects decided to incorporate them all in home decor, choosing a suitable color palette and furniture inspired by the sand and the rugged coastal landscape. Customers wanted the living spaces to feel rich and tactile, which was also done well, although it was a bit difficult to incorporate the wild nature outside on a nifty level.
Dark stained wood, designed to mimic the color of the floor, was used to make the kitchen furniture and to clad the central gable wall of the living area. In some areas it was specifically weathered to reflect the “wild character” of nature. Full-height windows flood the rooms with light and let the owners enjoy the view. The living room is my favorite room – here you can see an oversized fireplace that is completely clad in dark-stained wood, which is definitely a statement. Two stone coffee tables contrast with their slender lines, and the upholstery on the sofas is very tactile. Another great space is the kitchen, which features dark-stained wooden cabinets and creative pendant lights with fabric lampshades that give it a somewhat sturdy feel.
To keep decoration to a minimum, the entire space was furnished with chunky oak benches, hanging textile sculptures from the Swedish brand Artelleriet and a handful of works of art that customers had collected on previous trips abroad. The house has natural, rich materials and gives the feeling of being in the middle of nature.
