Agape

residential. This large, early 20th century house north of  Vedbæk, Trørød in Denmark captures all the light from outside, holding it within like a precious gift. 434 sq. m,  plus another 120 in the basement, it is designed to accommodate a family and create a peaceful and  dynamic environment. These were the criteria which  Danish interior designer and art director Stine Langvad  used as inspiration for this living concept in the making.  The project does not follow rules or trends, but focuses  on an inner style: a house in continuous development that  is enriched daily with the habits of those who live there.Room after room, this is a place to discover;  beginning with the entrance that immediately reveals  the light and neutral tones of the interior, in sharp  contrast with the black wood treated with linseed oil  on the exterior. The delicate shades of grey of the rooms create a bright and airy colour scheme which enhances  the bright tones of certain, carefully chosen key pieces.The result is an environment of great harmony and vitality which invites you to enjoy the home following the mood of the moment, whether it is to suit entertaining, relaxing or studying. Large spaces alternate with the  more intimate atmosphere of the smaller rooms, from the bright living room and the little library, or the spacious dining room and the charming conservatory.The design of the interior reveals a respect for the soul and architecture of the house. Many of the original features have been restored, such as the kitchen tiles and the panelling in some of the rooms. The layout of the space, however, reflects a modern style and the practical needs of everyday life, leading to a striking mix of contemporary elements and vintage details.This same mixture of languages is clearly expressed  in one of the bathrooms, where the dark, hand-made  tiles, with a modern feel blend perfectly with the Ottocento bathtub in Cristalplant® biobased by Benedini Associati. Inspired by the old cast iron baths of the past, Ottocento interprets the current need for comfort and elegance. Completing the room is Stairs a versatile and practical piece of furniture in oak that can be simply leant against the wall without any need to drill holes.
