A Light and Airy Danish Summer Cottage Oasis

Swedes are even now recovering from a magical Midsummer weekend of sunshine, floral crowns and revelry! I had an condominium lined up to display you right now, but because the mercury is set to strike 30 c (86 f) in Scandinavia today, I believed a summertime cottage by the sea could be a lot more apt! This vintage black and white cabin in Tisvilde on Denmark’s North Zealand coastline, is owned by inside stylist and home furnishings maker Ophilia Thalund. Ophilia has created an airy, light filled interior in smooth shades of white, blue, gray and brown. The sparsely embellished place functions objects gathered about time together with flea sector finds as properly as items gathered on travels – ensuing in a private oasis in which to loosen up on balmy summertime days!

A classic ‘trasmatta’ rag rug* – a mat created from scraps of clothing and other leftover textiles – will help to defend the ground in the kitchen. 

In Scandinavian cabins, natural products and simplicity principles the working day! 

A straightforward white butterfly chair can be simply transported outside when the sunlight shines! 

A wood bench doubles up as a aspect desk for espresso table books and an antique bottle has been repurposed into a interesting lamp! 

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

Wooden panel partitions and gentle grey-blue shades help to link the cabin to its coastal site. 

Charming! I can picture on a working day like these days all the windows and doors are thrown open and everyone is flitting in between the sea and the back garden – from time to time popping inside of to gather a drink or slice of watermelon. Just like us! 

Speaking of summer months – the faculty holidays are in full swing and I will be dialling down to my summertime running a blog plan (publishing on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays) in buy to expend time with my girls – and try out to maintain the chaos at dwelling at bay (cue: a trail of destruction which include coils of wet towels, a swiftly diminishing pantry and a insane amount of glasses in use at any 1 minute – does anyone else recognise this?). Even so,  it’s my absolute favorite time of the calendar year! I hope you are ready to choose a little downtime and relax as well. 

If you happen to be wondering about visiting Stockholm this summer time – why not remain in the gorgeous archipelagos so you can combine the sea and quiet environment with the town? Here’s a 20% code off for you if you remain at lodge Vår Gårds Saltsjöbaden for a few nights or far more among 1st – 31st July 2022: NIKISUMMER. I liked it so a lot past wintertime I am using my total spouse and children there this July! 

See you Wednesday!
