A dream Danish house by the sea

Hej, hvad så? Do you have a dream house out there? One that you drive pass every now and again and think 'oh, how I'd love to live there one day'?! Sometimes these dreams do come true. And today's home tour is proof! Åsa Olofsson (owner of Smuk beauty salon in Copenhagen) and husband Peter (a partner at Bech-Bruun) returned from holiday to find their dream house, a mere 300 metres from their own, had gone on the market. And despite being completely derelict with no bathroom or kitchen and a waterlogged basement, they snapped it up in an instant. It's easy to see why. Not only is the house full of character, with old beams and large, light-filled rooms, it's also right on the beach. The pair drafted in the help of an architect and slowly but surely restored the house into a fantastic family home, which they enjoy today with their two children Maja and Carl.

I think I might just have found my dream house too! I've always dreamed of living on the beach like this - and the house itself is just beeeautiful! Could you imagine living here?!

Get the look:

Ground floor flooring: Epoxy 

dining area - wishbone chairs, Eames DSW chair, Hemnes glass cabinet from IKEA, fluffy grey sheepskin, a selection of Marble lights by & Tradition hang over the table.

sitting room - FLY chair by & Tradition, RANARP Floor/reading lamp, I like this wall hanging.
