my desire to live in a windmill is growing. there's something so romantic about them. and the idea of living within that rounded space just appeals. think of the decorating possibilities alone. a round dining table. built-in couches with loads of pillows around the edges of a big room, walls lined with books. when we went to see the loom the other day, this beauty was right across the road. nobody lives in this one and you could drive your car under it, but isn't it just so romantic? especially since i antiqued it in lightroom.
it was quite lovely, even in the snow.
then, we saw this one over in jylland. these people clearly ARE living in it and it looks wonderful even tho' its windmill bit is gone. you'd still have that fabulous rounded shape and all those stories, winding ever upward to a little room at the top, designed just for writing.
and there's this one down on møn. it has some bits of its windmill left. and i just love the almost russian onion dome shape of the top of it.
but i could also be talked into a lighthouse.
