Open doors: a summer house in Denmark

It may not be Denmark the country in which you have thought for your summer vacation, too far to the north, it may be cold ... however on its shores there are great places to spend the summer time with summer homes so wonderful like the one we are going to see in this article.

It is an old, 19th-century house built in an area of ​​the coast near Copenhagen, which was once a fisherman's house and has been restored to suit today's tastes and needs. He White color and natural light are the main protagonists After the renovation, several separate small rooms have now become a set of communicated and open spaces.

When the restoration of the house was decided, it was very damaged, in some areas practically destroyed, that may seem a great disadvantage, but nevertheless in a way it is something positive because it leads to the idea of join rooms and create larger spaces and more open.

Although in the past the tendency forced to divide the houses into many small rooms even if they were dark, today the opposite is done. What interests us now is minimize the number of partitions to make the most of the space and to enjoy natural light whenever possible.

In the images on these lines we see the areas for living room and dining room. The furniture chosen for the dining room, both the table like the chairs are quite predictable, although there has been a mixture of colors and models, they are the fashionable furniture and those that we see in most of the avant-garde houses. I am the only one that happens to me, but since I see them they start to bore me.

He white color makes the house look even bigger and luminous of what it is, the suppression of partitions has achieved the free circulation of natural light throughout almost the whole house. Maybe for some, so much white can be even excessive, I love it especially because it is a summer house, maybe for the whole year if I would get tired.

In the photo we see among other things the detail of the cylindrical staircase that occupies almost no space inside the house. One of the disadvantages of the houses in two heights is that the staircase and its hollow can cause us to lose useful meters, but with a staircase like this, nothing is almost wasted.

Following the same style as the rest of the house andl bedroom is also minimalist cut with some curious detail, such as the rustic stool that acts as a bedside table or the lamp hanging from the wall. I like the style although in my opinion that bedside table is not very functional, I prefer something with more drawers and more storage space although it is less stylish.

An interesting detail is the stone step for slight height changes What happens when moving from one room to another, I imagine that they will have to be tested to see if they are practical or not and if they involve any danger. They are beautiful and because of the height does not seem to be necessary, so the reason for their placement should be rather aesthetic, if they are also safe the combination is perfect.

The remarkable thing is that in a summer house we do not need too many things or ornaments, fair and essential furniture for our day to day and nothing more. The white color and clarity are fundamental features of a house for the summer season in which we like to enjoy the natural light of each day. Fashion style, Scandinavian and minimal with some rustic touch, but each one can adapt it according to their personal taste.

Open doors: a small apartment that dares with red

I love teaching small houses because they are the ones that most closely resemble the houses we have in Spain (and in many cities around the world). In these apartments we can find bold ideas that we can apply to our day to day and that we would not have chosen if we had not previously seen them. In this case, what most attracts my attention is the use of the intense red color for decoration, a color that would not traditionally be associated with the painting of the wall of a small space.
