The refined appeal of the summer house comes from the purity of its design and the innate minimalism that has made Danish design so endearing to the world. Every little detail is carefully curated and the decor kept as unfussy as possible to accentuate this idea of frugality and functionality.

And if you’re looking for something a bit softer around the edges BMT’s egg-shaped Sea-Suite might fit the bill perfectly. The oblong design was actually first developed for a cruise liner terminal in Hong Kong but was reused to envision a series of beach homes and floating residences.
On the inside partitions are kept to a bare minimum as an open floor plan visually connects the kitchen the dining space and the family zone. One can see industrial-style lighting and glass partitions with dark metallic frames throughout the residence while understated contemporary décor fills each room. Lighting plays a major role in the overall ambiance of the home with natural ventilation flowing from one room to the next. Geometric tiles in the kitchen add pattern to the space while throw pillows and bedding bring color to the minimal bedroom in white.
