Located in Snekkersten, Denmark, one of the fishermen’s past villages, the villa onto the sea of the spouses Kau, Julie and Niels with their 3 sons, represents a harmony of choices between the essential lines and a design décor but without excess. At first glance, the facade will make your attention: candid and almost beaten, as if once with the beach that opens a few meters away. A sea house that draws from the water the magic atmosphere it enjoys.
The essence of the interior
In the villa onto the sea you can see how the interiors have been transformed by enhancing the environments, no space has been occupied by excessive concentration of furniture and accessories. The living area features an elegant glass table, Poul Kjærholm’s PK 54, and Arne Jacobsen’s deck chairs. Simplicity and modernity, features that are also present in the kitchen where there is a color note of the hob. No more element, lots of order and all the items placed in their place to not break the harmony of the fritz Hansen’s signed design.
In the bedroom, which is accessed through a staircase whose profiles are distinguished only by the presence of wood, the use of delicate shades of pink pastel is noted, an advantage that gives a relaxing feeling without falling down in the chic effectively. You will find curious the use of the stool as a bedside table, a complement that finds in its functionality the general expression of the design of the villa. The bathroom, on the other hand, takes on much more modern and strong tones, both for the character of the ceramic washbasin and for the use of the lava stone A Hand Made that creates a dynamic contrast to the window on the ceiling from which it radiates a lukewarm light. You can feel the comfort of the living area thanks to the Poul Kjærholm PK80 leather sofa placed under a beautiful window, an ideal location if you love reading a book or hanging with the rainy rain on the roof.
The real protagonist: the light
Kau’s villa is characterized by the intense natural light that enters the many windows and windows, a detail that will surely be captured and reflected in the very light colors of the Dinesen wooden floor. It not only creates a visual filter for those who look at the interiors but, reflecting on it, enhances the walls and, in particular, Canadian artwork by artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen. This home is a great start if you want to learn to use light not only with mere illumination, but as an almost vital element to put in a dimension of objects and furniture present.
The inebriating atmosphere
The location of the villa on the beach, the often cloudy climate and the soft soffit create an unbeatable atmosphere in any other residence. What you can see, perceive, or breathe inside these white walls is an impalpable scent of sweet freshness, a nice, but somewhat monotonous and flat cuddle. A perfect space if you want to relax.
The accessories chosen with maximum experience
The presence of many clear shades inside the Villa Kau made it necessary to insert contrast accessories that immediately look to your eyes. The metal stools, the large black vase beside the fireplace, all the artist’s ceramics, or the geometry rug, serve to give depth to spaces to eliminate, with few objects chosen, every vacuum creates.
