A tranquil and romantic townhouse
Birgitte would never have thought she would still be living there more than 35 years later. She has been refurbishing it completely the past few years together with her current partner Svenni, who is a keen hobby handyman. They have found it hard to leave this home, since there are so many memories connected to it by now. It’s easy to spot that Birgitte and Svenni is a couple that enjoys traveling and getting inspired by other cultures. The cool pastel colours are beautifully mixed together with buddha statues brought home from India, and rustique furniture from Mexico.
