This home in Denmark features a fantastic combo of minimalism, earthy and coastal-inspired decor and touches and a moody feel. It looks not just as a home but more as an artwork, in full harmony with nature.
The house was created by Norm Architects; the landscape features scenic lakes, forests and sandy beaches, and the architects decided to reflect them all in the home decor choosing a proper color palette and furniture inspired by sand and the rugged coastal landscape. The clients wanted the living spaces to appear rich and tactile, which was also well done, though it was a bit challenging to incorporate the wild nature outside on a refined level.
Dark-stained timber, which is intended to mimic the color of soil, has been used to craft the kitchen cabinetry and to clad the living area’s central gabled wall. In some areas it has been purposefully weathered to reflect the “wild character” of the outdoors. Full height windows flood the spaces with light and let the owners enjoy the views. The living room is my favorite space – here you can see an oversized fireplace fully clad with dark-stained timber, which is definitely a statement piece. Two stone coffee tables contrast to it with their sleek lines, and the upholstery of the sofas is very tactile. Another great space is the kitchen, which shows off dark stained wooden cabinets and creative pendant lamps with fabric lampshades, which add somewhat a rugged feel.
Keeping decoration to a minimum, the overall space has been dressed with chunky oak wood benches, textile hanging sculptures by Swedish brand Artelleriet, and a handful of artworks collected by the clients on previous trips abroad. Boasting all-natural, rich materials, the house gives you the feeling of being in the middle of nature while inside.
