Hi everybody! I want to share some great news with you today, that I’ve been dying to tell you about. I am decorating a brand new house from top to bottom! Sounds like a dream come true, right? It is – but I am not moving though. It’s my latest project that I’ve been working on for three months now. And I couldn’t be more excited about it.
The house is a two-story townhouse located in my old hometown Roskilde, just 30 kilometers (18 miles) outside of Copenhagen. The house is brand new and is being built as we speak by MT Højgaard. The house is part of a new residential area called Kilehusene in Roskilde. It is located on the western edge of town with the most scenic outlook towards fields of grass and a daily sunset – and yet it is only about 3 kilometers from the center of Roskilde and the station, where the train will take you to Copenhagen in just 20-25 minutes. A perfect combination of countryside and city with the sea nearby.
The townhouses are built in a Nordic style and architecture with clean lines, natural materials and emphasis on plenty of daylight. This is the first building stage and 16 new houses will be ready to be moved into this October. More houses will follow in stage 2 come summer 2017. I’ve visited the building site a few times over the last few months to see the progress. It is really coming along.
The house that I am decorating is the show house, that potential buyers can visit to get a feel of the houses. It is 118.5 squaremeters big in two stories. The downstairs contains an entrance, a restroom and the heart of the house; a big room containing kitchen, dining space and living room in one big room. The staircase leads to the upstairs, where you will find the master bedroom, to smaller rooms, a bathroom and a multi room.
Over the next few months I will share more about the project with you as the house takes shape and of course invite you inside for a sneak peek along with my best tips for decorating a brand new house. I know a lot of people struggle with this and it is harder to decorate a new space than an old house with history and lots of details, but with a few tricks a new house will feel like a home in no time. Plus who wouldn’t love having brand new house – just think of the many hours saved on maintenance!
If this sounds good to you some of the houses are still up for sale. Check out this plan of all Kilehusene to see, what is available.
It’s rare that I make an appearance here on the blog, but I am making an exception with this project. Here’s a little sneak peek from the fun day I spent at BoConcept choosing furniture for the house a few weeks ago. I will share more about the process, my inspiration for decorating the house and the result soon – stay tuned!
Meanwhile you can follow Kilehusene on Facebook to see how the project is coming along, news and info on open house etc.
