Romantic Cottage Living Room
Bleached-pine floorboards brighten up this small space.
To complement the region's northern light, designer-owner Monique Waqué decided to decorate her German cottage with pale colours evocative of Danish style. Check fabrics in a mix of colours and scales are used as the home's primary pattern. Waqué furnished rooms minimally, buying many items at auctions in Denmark or Germany. Much of it is Scandinavian or French, and small in scale to suit the cosy dimensions.
