Let’s just say the weather in Scandinavia is ‘mixed’ right now. Torrential rain, cold and windy one minute, sunshine the next. But that’s not going to deter us from enjoying our holiday! Thankfully, summer cottages across the region are equipped for every eventuality – with doors that swing open to create an indoor / outdoor feel on sunny days, and cosy sheepskin-lined chairs and fireplaces that can roar into life at the drop of a hat on colder days! 

In Houstrup, on the east coast of mainland Denmark, Henriette and Tommy have created a cosy oasis in which to switch off and relax – no matter what the weather decides to do! 
The little black and white wooden cottage seamlessly blends in with its wild surrounds thanks to a beautiful turf roof, and the garden has been kept deliberately untamed and natural. Inside, the cabin is simply decorated in soft, earthy tones and furnished with items in wood and rattan. Danes tend to love their floral quilts and cushions which bring a subtle romantic touch to the rooms. Keep an eye out for pastel florals on the sofa and large quilts over the beds (try IB Laursen for similar). 

Overall, a wonderful, informal and ‘hyggeligt’ place in which to relax all summer long!

So charming! And in my mind, everything a summer home should be. 

Is there anything that stood out to you about Henriette & Tommy’s cabin? 

Perhaps you’d like to explore more Danish summer cabins this weekend? Here are a few I love: 

Have a wonderful, relaxing weekend friends!
