The Landbo residence breathes the air of the 60s and 70s, staying true to its architectural roots. Embracing original materials and warm tones, the house showcases a delightful mix of tiles and wooden low ceilings. Johanne and her husband fearlessly experiment with darker colours, employing a colour-blocking strategy to enhance the visual appeal. The interior is a carefully curated space, favouring fewer decorative objects to let colours and art take center stage.
“Our future dream is to live at this spot, grow a garden, have chickens, fill the house with family and friends and enjoy the nature surrounding.” After a decade of constant movement, their home in Thy, North Denmark stands as a testament to stability and rooted dreams.
Mornings are dedicated to family rituals—breakfast with their 3-year-old daughter, Magda. Johanne and her husband delve into their shared passion for photography, alternating between home-based editing and on-location shoots. This rhythm allows them to spend quality time with Magda, balancing work and family life.
A standout feature of their home is the expansive window frame with a built-in bench. This thoughtful addition invites nature and light into their kitchen, creating a seamless blend between indoor and outdoor living. The strategic use of wood as an extension of all windows frames the picturesque view, complemented by long light blue curtains that add a touch of contrast.
“I always like to start the day with a cup of coffee and look out the big window we have installed this year and see what the day is like.”
Johanne’s curation of art prints was chosen intuitively, not for cohesion, but for individual allure. Placed strategically in different corners, the prints add character to the bedroom, bathroom, and living room.
“My favourite piece must be “El Mar” by Lucrecia Rey Caro as it reminds me of the water just outside our home. It is funny how just a few lines and the way the line forms remind you of something, and make you feel in a certain way. That is the way art works, and that is why “El Mar” moved something in me and has the center place in our living room.”
