Julie's Bright Danish Summer Cabin by the Sea

This weekend, the clocks went forward in Sweden - which always feels like a giant leap towards summertime (even if it was painful when the alarm clock went off!). In honour of the occasion, I couldn't resist sharing a dreamy Danish summer cabin with you. 

But it hasn't always been dreamy. In fact when Julie Løwenstein and her husband Simon Schack first discovered the cabin in Rørvig, it was dark, dank and had been on the market for an age. As a stylist for Bolig magasinet, Julie knows her way around a renovation and how to give homes a lift. The couple found that painting the interior white was key to creating a bright living space - and they also put in a new kitchen and bathroom.

Today, the simple, yet vibrant cabin has everything the family need to enjoy weekends and holidays away from the city. 

See the full tour and floor plan here and read more about Julie's cabin at Bolig Magasinet (in Danish).

Have a fab start to the week friends!

  1. Love what they did with this cabin, especially the shade of white that is warm and not a glaring too-bright white. I'd like to know the name of the paint they used if possible.

  2. This makes me long for a summer vacation! Such a light, fresh look.

    Is it typical in Scandinavian countries to forego a headboard? I like the appearance, but it isn't usual in my area.

  3. I absolutely adore that you include floorplans of the places in the posts!

  4. That Shower! Wow! I love the stone treatment that gets used around the floor...Inspiring!-Tracy

  5. from the french woman : it's nice that someone else appreciates the plans !
    This one scribbled freehands is very cute !

  6. What a beautiful summer cabin! The bright colors and cozy decor make it the perfect seaside retreat. By the way, have you checked out Bailey's discount center for affordable home decor items? They offer a wide range of products at discounted prices, which could be helpful for anyone looking to decorate their own summer getaway.
