The rain is coming down in Sweden and I’m guessing there are plenty of card games going on behind closed doors of everyone’s summer cottages. Meanwhile, judging by these pictures, the sun is shining over the Öresund strait in the Danish town of Rørvig, North of Zealand.
It’s somewhere they come to relax – clearly seen by the day beds, window seats and casual style. The fresh whites help to create a bright and airy feel, while pops of pink and other bright colours add to the vibrancy of the living space. Ready to see a few before and after pictures?
An entirely new shade (earthy pink), new windows, sunroom extension and new deck have completely transformed the exterior into an inviting cottage!
A cosy dining nook has been carved out under the sloping roof using built-in seating and rattan chairs.

Walls were knocked through to create a light and airy open-plan living space and a new kitchen has been installed with pretty blue cabinet fronts to reflect the coastal location.
An antique bed serves as a place for afternoon naps and overnight kips!
New windows, a fresh lick of white and a new herringbone floor was what was needed to completely transform the sun room into a beautiful bright space to relax, surrounded by greenery! You often see pretty floral cushions like these in danish summer houses.
I am guessing the beautiful wood floor was lurking under the laminate flooring – what a find! New windows, a fresh lick of paint and old beams have added a wonderful summer cottage vibe to the bedroom.
A new, larger and lower window has made a huge different to the feel of the bathroom. I also love the tiles!
What a perfect transformation from a slightly pokey, dated house to an idyllic summer cottage. I would perfectly happy relaxing here all summer – sunshine or rain, how about you?
