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.

  1. 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.
