It is possible to live in a fairy castle even nowadays. Having combined Italian and Scandinavian traditions, a Danish family built an original Trullihusen – an amazing fusion of two worlds. Take a look at an incredible house, reminding a Middle Age knight castle with sandstone walls and floors.
The house belongs to the owner of the advertising agency Morten Angelo and his wife Tina Horsted. They were looking for a summer house which, on one hand, should be far from their work and everyday stress of Copenhagen and, on the other hand, would be near enough to get there in case of necessity. And they singled Italy out from other countries, particularly the north east of Piedmont with its beautiful small houses from the 15th century.
A marvelous house with floor area of 300 m2 was renovated by designer Charlotte Johnson, who was able to see a dream house in these ruins. She created a new history of this house. She managed to add contrast to the interior, using just black and white palette. She decorated the house with the furniture from 1960s, which would fit in every theme.
Only two towers, built in traditional style of Alberobello, have survived from olden times, but other parts of the house were built again. Though the house reminds a castle, actually that is a trullo – a traditional house, built as its historic prototype with small dry stones and cone roof.
