Quiet Seaside Cottage

Once a fisherman's cottage, this beautiful home in Denmark, north of Copenhagen, now belongs to a journalist, Helen, and her son Lauritz. Helen has used my favourite 'quiet' colour palette of white, grey, wood, and soft blue, which reflects their surroundings beautifully, to create a tranquil haven perfect for writing.

It's lovely to see a David Trubridge light looking stunning over the dining table. I love how the fire place is slightly off centre from the chimney (I like it when things aren't too perfect and symmetrical).

A gorgeous piece of rustic wood makes a fabulous shelf bracket. The home has a strong Asian influence which adds to the simple, zen quality it has.

Simple, honest materials are used throughout, and the bathroom is a perfect example of this, with it's concrete basin set on a rustic metal and wood vanity.

This tiny bedroom cleverly places drawers under the bed to save on room. Set up so high, it feels really cosy. Plenty of natural light, white walls, and very simple decorating makes it feel more spacious than it is.

Another bedroom makes great use of the awkward sloping walls by installing a very cool handmade wardrobe system. The wood wallpaper continues the earthy, natural theme.

Such a beautiful, humble home. Do you have a favourite feature?


  1. I, like you, hate when things look too perfect. Our home is a 1950's art deco place with concrete walls. Nothing lines up, and it's so hard to get something straight on the wall but we love it. And being concrete, isn't going to move in a hurry :-)


It's lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Vic xxx
