A Light and Airy Danish Summer Cottage Oasis

Walter S. Timmons

Swedes are nevertheless recovering from a magical Midsummer weekend of sunshine, floral crowns and revelry! I had an condominium lined up to clearly show you currently, but since the mercury is set to strike 30 c (86 f) in Scandinavia nowadays, I believed a summer cottage by the sea could be extra apt! This basic black and white cabin in Tisvilde on Denmark’s North Zealand coastline, is owned by interior stylist and household furniture company Ophilia Thalund. Ophilia has made an airy, mild loaded inside in soft shades of white, blue, grey and brown. The sparsely embellished area capabilities things gathered more than time together with flea market place finds as effectively as items collected on travels – ensuing in a own oasis in which to take it easy on balmy summer season days!

A typical ‘trasmatta’ rag rug* – a mat produced from scraps of outfits and other leftover textiles – helps to protect the flooring in the kitchen area. 

In Scandinavian cabins, natural products and simplicity rules the day! 

A uncomplicated white butterfly chair can be easily transported outdoors when the sun shines! 

A wood bench doubles up as a facet table for coffee table textbooks and an antique bottle has been repurposed into a interesting lamp! 

Ophilia generally sits at this antique desk when she’s working up at the cabin. 

Wood panel partitions and soft gray-blue shades help to join the cabin to its coastal site. 

Beautiful! I can consider on a day like now all the windows and doors are thrown open and everyone is flitting concerning the sea and the back garden – sometimes popping inside of to collect a consume or slice of watermelon. Just like us! 

Speaking of summer – the college holiday seasons are in complete swing and I will be dialling down to my summertime blogging agenda (submitting on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays) in buy to commit time with my ladies – and try to maintain the chaos at household at bay (cue: a path of destruction together with coils of soaked towels, a rapidly diminishing pantry and a mad selection of glasses in use at any 1 minute – does anyone else recognise this?). Even so,  it’s my complete favorite time of the year! I hope you are equipped to acquire a very little downtime and rest way too. 

If you happen to be thinking about viewing Stockholm this summer – why not continue to be in the beautiful archipelagos so you can combine the sea and calm environment with the city? Here is a 20% code off for you if you continue to be at resort Vår Gårds Saltsjöbaden for three nights or far more between 1st – 31st July 2022: NIKISUMMER. I cherished it so a great deal very last wintertime I’m taking my full family members there this July! 

See you Wednesday!
