Continuing to embrace dark interiors this week, this newly remodeled project contains dark features and natural colors to compliment its surroundings.

“Boasting all-natural, rich materials, the house gives you the feeling of being in the middle of nature while inside,” says Norm Architects who applied sand-colored walls and earth toned furnishings to an existing coastal home. The residence is situated along a rugged costal landscape in North Zealand, not too far from Copenhagen. Zealand is home to scenic lakes, forests and sandy beaches, which served as inspiration for the home’s interior colors.

AMM was created as a way to share my aesthetics with the world. Stunning interiors instigated my passion for beautiful, extraordinary, and simple shapes. I was largely influenced by Nordic design philosophy and AMM transitioned from a personal blog into my own collection of interiors, things, visual trends, DIY projects, lifestyle products, and observations. As an interior design aficionado, I would love to see like-minded people, so stay tuned!

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
