Seaside Abode by Norm Architects
Norm Architects recently redesigned the interiors of a coastal home, bringing nature indoors in a style that oozes cool Scandi-charm.
Located on an unspoilt stretch of the North Zealand coast about an hour's drive from Copenhagen, the house is surrounded by stunning scenery which the owners unsurprisingly wished to incorporate into the design of the interior. The architects achieved this by introducing a restrained palette of materials and colours which mirrors the surrounding nature, thus the use of natural materials such as wood, stone and soft linens in subdued earthy hues with flashes of blue and green.
The shapes are kept simple and organic, the straight lines of the furniture softened by layers of fabric and naturalistic accessories. The latter include rustic suspension lights which could have been made from found objects on the beach and a selection of art and ceramics collected by the owners from around the world.
When blended together by the cool Nordic light streaming in through the floor-to-ceiling windows, these elements create a harmonious atmosphere perfect for restoring balance and energy.
Shop the Style
Achieve a cool harmonious atmosphere with stripped back designs and natural materials, such as the Ren lounge chair from Stellar Works, the Plinth side table from Menu and the Florence table from New Works.
Also in Natural
The Freycinet national park in Tasmania is full of natural wonders to explore, but the Coastal pavilions at Freycinet Lodge may just succeed in tempting visitors to stay in all day.
This petite mountain abode designed by Rapin Saiz is a good example of how great design can turn even the smallest spaces into the most charming homes.
