Renovated villa in Charlottenlund

They choose this striking property from early 1900-century, but they had to do a big rebuilding throughout the house to reach this result. The entrance, kitchen and bathroom were among others moved. The room that is now the kitchen was five small rooms in the past. All the delicate colors of the house have been carefully chosen from Farrow & Ball's delicious palette. The kitchen is from the Swedish Kvanum. The house also got a new roof, it was painted and all outdoor areas and terraces are newly built. The finished result exudes tranquility and harmony.
