black beauty.


Situated on a large hilly plot of land in Hornsherred, denmark with views as far as the eye can see, is this beautiful black-shingled cabin belonging to Inge Plank and Ole Beckman. i love the stunning simplicity of all the black and white, giving the old hunting lodge the look of an updated and comfortable modern cabin. black eames chairs surround a warped old wood dining table, and a flea-market-found chandelier adds a bit of color and unexpected whimsy to what’s mostly a monochromatic space. add to that the lovely old vines and open breezeways between the rooms, and this is the kind of weekend cabin i’d happily retreat to.

    This looks stunning ! Mea culpa, but we most likely are going to steal the idea of black & white for our country retreat in the Paluma Ranges in North Queensland, Australia. 5 acres of bushland, a yurt-like timber cottages with two outbuildings, large verandas and the indispensable all Aussie outdoor area for the notorious Barbie – what more can two folks and four dogs desire ?

    Inside we may be more courageous when it comes to colour & texture, but for the outside the b&w color scheme is perfect – the garden will light up against it.
