Summer Retreats

Following a much needed getaway of pure bliss at a rustic retreat on a lake up north this past weekend, I was inspired to share the photos of these great summer cabins. Villa Else in Denmark is the perfect blend of simplicity and rustic with pops of fun color mixed in. The great room with all those windows and wide open ceilings is fabulous. I long for such a place to eat breakfast and enjoy my morning coffee... I originally discovered and read about Villa Else a few days ago on my friend Megan's fabulous blog Beach Bungalow 8.

Villa Else was stylized by Katrine Martensen-Larsen of KML Design along with all the other beautiful getaways in this blog post. Below are photos of the summer retreat fondly named 'between the sky and the sea'. I love how it's perched upon the rocks right at the edge of the sea. The interiors have an airy relaxed quality to them and make me want to curl up on the daybed and take an afternoon nap.


I also really enjoyed 'the coastal path'. Loving the crisp white interiors and the way the living area seems to effortlessly flow into the outdoors.


But my absolute favorite is the blissful hideaway of Danish clothing and jewellery designer Marlene Juhl Jørgensen, in the picturesque village of Tisvilde. Loving the juxtaposition of materials in the interior. Painted and unfinished wood, sparkling crystal and raw metal.

Whew. That was a lot of photos. My apologies, I couldn't narrow them down...

I could holiday in any of those.
BUT I would love to live in all of them.

We can all dream with those pics (-:

I see why you had so many photos! It would be cruel to leave any of them out.

But that intense blue on the exterior of the little cottage ~ oh that shade is insane! Fabulous!

Just found you via my friend Linda from oeke. Glad I did. Following now.

Cheerio, Virginia
