Lene and her husband Jørgen live with their adult son in a beautiful natural setting in the former school in the town of Rudbøl in Denmark. This is very close to the rough marshland and the border between Denmark and Germany. The couple came upon the place by coincidence but immediately fell in love with it. The house was very decayed but Lene and Jørgen saw the possibilities and especially loved the mansion style and the tall windows. Actually, they only wanted to use it as their summer house but they quickly felt so at home here that they decided to move in permanently, and so they sold their other home. The charming house, the rough nature and the wind blowing across the marchland had indeed captured their hearts. The style in this house is a wonderful mixture of French country style and Swedish Gustavian style. All the rooms are nice and bright, and everything has been painted white, including most of the furniture which is mainly old. Lene combines it with lots of antique French candleholders and chandeliers, beautiful old baskets and boxes and lots of marvelous textiles in subdued colours.
