The residents relax on the deck of their floating home A Danish couple spent 25 years living aboard houseboats before becoming landlubbers and moving ashore. After three years they were ready to get their sea legs back and decided to build a floating home in Copenhagen Harbor. The 860 square foot footprint is perfect for the empty-nesters, who downsized considerably before moving into their new home. Like most Scandinavian homes, the design allows in as much natural light as possible. The striking black kitchen island sits on a wood frame with slender legs, which keeps it from seeming too heavy in the light and airy room. The style of the home is clearly Scandinavian as evidenced by the extensive use of light-colored wood and a neutral color palette. In the bedroom, a large glass window affords amazing views of Copenhagen Harbor, which, because it is a floating house is RIGHT THERE. The larch wood shutters slide closed when the couples need privacy. Plug-in wall sconces are used as a space-saving measure in the small bedroom. Sconces in a bedroom are great as they free up valuable real estate on a small bedside table. The couple doesn’t know if they’ll stay in this floating home forever, but for now they will continue to enjoy diving into the water from their front doorstep. Image Source: Dwell Magazine
