Home tour- A beautiful white manor in Funen!

Anette and Heine Robert Dahl Bartsch swapped an active life in Copenhagen to settle on Gelskov Gods of Funen. Here they live, holding exhibitions, carries both bed and breakfast and sells both fine antiques and flea market bargains. Let's take a look at their 1917 white manor.

Tastefully furnished with exquisite antiques, chandeliers and decorative objects, this beautiful home still feels light and airy, thanks to the white walls and white floorboards. With gorgeous features such as deep window niches, charming fireplaces, doors with beveled glass, tall panels, wide plank floors and handsome staircases, this home exudes a sense of grandeur and elegance. What are your thoughts?

  7. Love! The white is so fresh and makes the wood on the stairs and the front door look so rich and beautiful.

  8. Oh my... those doors! This has taken my door envy to new levels! I also love the rich warm wood of the stair treads against the stark white of the spindles.

  9. There are so many beautiful aspects of that house, but I am really drawn to all the floors. Since my house is either carpet or tile, I love all wood floors!

  13. This is certainly a white manor and it is grand. It is quite monochromatic, it appears almost ghostly to me. It is interesting that they have added the gilded mirrors (a hint of something not white) and that they have lightened the floors but left the stair treads darker (perhaps this makes them easier to see).
