Lise has been living in this town house in Kerteminde, Denmark, for 30 years and her daughters, Molly and Nora, grew up here. Throughout her entire life, Lise has been interested in old, funny bits and pieces, and that’s why recycling has always been a matter of course in her home. As an example, the tiles in the patio used to be part of the Kerteminde square and the small greenhouse was built with terrace doors found in a dumpster. Lise planted the rose in the patio 25 years ago and now it’s as big as a parasol. You can easily imagine sitting underneath this plant when it blossoms. Lise loves the vivid and typically Danish shade of blue called “madame blue” which she’s also used indoors for the dining room furniture, combined with other shades of blue Lise has really managed to create a kitchen that fits to this old house and it feels as if it’s always been part of the house. That’s quite an achievement. The room has been furnished with recycling furniture in shades of blue only. Lise used to run two second-hand stores. She loves going hunting for old things and she gets really excited when she visits flea markets somewhere in Europe.
