A Danish Cabin That's All About The Hygge!

Once upon a time I shared a lovely apartment belonging to Sarah Bjørumslet. The title of the post read 'keeping it real in a Danish family home in the heart of Copenhagen'. And I still remember how refreshing I thought it was to see an unstaged home complete with milk cartons on the table and toys strewn across the bedroom floor. Hooray to everyday life! 

I've been following Sarah's instagram feed @look_good_in_blue ever since and was excited to see that her 'cosy, old school' cottage is available to rent this summer! Situated between Rørvig and Nykøbing North West of Copenhagen, the cabin was built in the 1950s as an artists atelier, before becoming a relaxed getaway by the sea. Read on to discover more! 

Sarah says it's full of games and DVDs - a perfect way to wind down, especially if the Danish weather isn't playing ball! 

Mismatched crockery and glassware adds to the laidback vibe of the cabin and a glass cabinet keeps everything at hand! 

The cosy kitchen is leaning towards the cottage core vibe we are seeing so much of right now and reminds me a little of Hannes Mauritzen's little Swedish allotment cottage (if you haven't seen the tour, head on over!).  

I'm guessing the big chest is full of toys - or maybe blankets! What do you think? 

The sofa pulls out into a bed for extra guests - essential in a Scandinavian summer house as friends and family often stop by for a night or two (always bringing their own bedding, as is customary). 

I love how books are never far away - perfect for a rainy day! 

The ethos of the Scandinavian summer is to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Here, a little play house has been set up for children, and simple outdoor furniture serves as a spot to sit around the fire. After all, it wouldn't be Danish without the hygge! 

Guests don't need to wander far to reach the most magnificent sand dunes and beaches! I personally, love that part of the world - so beautiful! 

If you're curious about renting Sarah's cabin this summer, the best way to reach out / book is via instagram: @look_good_in_blue

Is there anything that stands out to you about this cosy cottage? 

It would be rude not to share a few other lovely danish cabins with you today - after all, summer is fast approaching and the weather here in Scandinavia is beautiful right now! Why not pour yourself a cup of coffee and take a peek at:  

Have a lovely day!

  1. I could live here full time. It's a charming spot.

    1. So true actually, forget just the summer and the odd week - I'm moving in!!

  2. Just wondering… why are the allotment cabins usually painted black on the outside? It’s such a contrast to all the white usually painted on the inside!

    1. Black absorbs heat? Plus you could find it in the snow!!

    2. There are a few reasons and theories, one is that it's deeply rooted in tradition as Danish fishermen's cottages were typically painted black. But I think also because this absorbs the heat as Jane points out.

  3. Love this cabin . Very fun to stay for a while and just enjoy

  4. It's perfectly imperfect! Love it!

  5. My most favorite word (hygge) to describe such a sweet place. Exactly what you'd picture a seaside, summer cottage to be - relaxed, simple and a little unkept because you're time is spent having so much fun! To me it all speaks cosy.
    Totally random, but I recall the aluminum and wood slat lawn chairs well. When I was young our family vacationed in Hayward, Wisconsin with small cabins dotting the fishing compound on Big Spider Lake. These where the chairs outside all of them. It triggers such great memories!

    1. I love how a piece of furniture can spark memories. My parents had similar garden chairs in the 70s / 80s too!
