Real Property Lust: Gelskov Gods

26/05/2011 § Leave a comment

While Gelskov Gods, a manor house on the island of Funen in Denmark, is a touch on the barren side for my taste — were this my manor house I’d  need some pictures on the walls, lots more fresh flowers, well-loved tsotchke and curiosities tucked into the corners, dozens of richly colored rugs strewn about, and (of course) a peacock or two — there is something about the stripped down surfaces and the masterful mixture of the classical, the baroque, the rococo and the modern that draws me in for hours.  Feminine without being precious, masculine without being overbearing, this is an aesthetic that I would love to immerse myself in.  Luckily, the couple who owns this beautiful home have added a bed and breakfast, gallery space and antique shop — so at least I don’t have to go doing any breaking and entering.  I’m unfamiliar with Danish law on the subject, but I have to assume it’s frowned upon…
