Nordsjælland House-01-1 Kindesign

This beautifully updated farmhouse was built in 1935, located on 17 acres of land including a small stream, an old apple orchard and horse stables in Nordsjælland, Denmark. Designer Lotte Minch and her husband Pedro Heyman live in this wonderful home that has been decorated for the holidays. The designer likes to decorate the home with spruce, pine branches and pine cones, all found objects from around her property. Six years ago, the couple acquired the 5,920 square feet (550 square meters) large property on two floors with white windows, black woodwork in the gables and red tile roofs. The original building was built in 1935 but expanded by the original owner with large picture windows facing the woods in 1970.

The public spaces of the kitchen, dining room and living room are on the ground floor, while the master bedroom, bathroom, office and guest room is located up under the charming sloping walls on the first floor. Lotte Minch, who besides being designer also holds the kitchen and interior design company Vivre, was responsible for the extensive interior renovation of the house. “We are a big family who often gather around large or small parties, so I have put the focus on having a spacious kitchen and a large dining room with seating for at least 14 people”, explains the designer.
