In a small Andalusian village in Spain a Danish couple has turned a former grocery store into a charming residence. The 200th year old Spanish town house had been empty for more than 25 years since the couple took it over in 2001, and this was clearly visible of course, says the Danish couple who soon saw opportunity where others had seen problems and limitations. Before the house was ready to live in, there was much that needed to be renovated. With the help of local craftsmen the house has been beautifully restored and turned into a inviting home.

This lovely old farmhouse the Dutch village of Spannum belongs to textile designer Claudy Jongstra. It is in this home and studio where Claudy works with local weavers, creating fabric from the wool produced by her own flock of sheep. Claudy then colours the hand woven fabric using dyes created from the plants in her garden. The decor of the home is rustic and slightly traditional but with a modern feel to it. The use of wood creates a warm and cosy atmosphere.

This minimalist villa in Arhus, Denkmark, is designed by Wienberg Architects. The house, measuring only 936 square foot (87 square meters), is bathed in natural light. The exterior consists of clads with vertical panels of wood in a black color with square window varying sizes. The choice of material is consistent throughout the entire house: the old part is kept entirely in a white interior. In the newly build part there is the kitchen in a white combined with steel and concrete.
