Villa Else, Søllerød, Denmark 03Villa Else is set in the wilds of Søllerød Nature Reserve on the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark, which means that it’s really more garden than untrammeled outerlands. But still. The cottage, owned by Henriette Willerup and Anton Greiffenberg, is the perfect size for escape and is impeccably styled by Katrine Martensen-Larsen.

Weekend Cabin isn’t necessarily about the weekend, or cabins. It’s about the longing for a sense of place, for shelter set in a landscape…for something that speaks to refuge and distance from the everyday. Nostalgic and wistful, it’s about how people create structure in ways to consider the earth and sky and their place in them. It’s not concerned with ownership or real estate, but what people build to fulfill their dreams of escape. The very time-shortened notion of “weekend” reminds that it’s a temporary respite.
