my scandinavian home: An idyllic Danish cottage

An idyllic Danish cottage

Tuesday, 19 May 2015

I hope you're having a great start to the week? I'm actually in the small fishing village of Gilleleje today for the second day of a photo shoot for my new book - so exciting (more news to follow at a later date)! We've got to leave the hotel shortly but before I go I thought it would be fitting to share an  absolutely idyllic Danish former fisherman's cottage belonging to Dorthe Brocante. The palette of blue, indigo, charcoal and earthy tones is so pretty, don't you think?

 Wow! How I'd love a home like this, how about you?

Anyone want to skip work this morning and drink coffee in the garden with me?!

I love, love love the ceramics. I was at a wonderful styling workshop at The Hive hosted by Dietland Wolf  in which she talked about black on black styling using textured ceramics. The detailed shot of the three black vessels in Dorthe's home reminds me of how beautiful it can be to group three items of the same colour but with different surface texture and shapes.

More beautiful cottages here. And Danish homes here.

Got to rush but I'll leave you to dream! Have a lovely day! 


  1. It's just that it's not really that blue, but overprocessed instead - it's very obvious, where the greenery outside has a blue tinge, or the white walls...I would kind of like the details, but now that the mood feels staged, I can't.

  2. Soothing and inspiring decor. I love the natural light. This is one of my favorite posts.

  3. very simple and beautiful, i really love it !
