Door

A door says so much. It is the face outward that welcomes the visitor. This lovely old door in a fantastic color is inviting to the contrasting yellow facade. The beautiful flower garlands makes a mark as well.

Villa Italienborg

Villa Italienborg is a house in Mölle, in the municipality of Höganäs / Sweden. It was built in 1909-10 in an imaginative Italian style. The facade is lined with white & red eternite tiles in a checkered pattern.

The house was built by a scrap dealer, who quickly sold it to a tailor, whose family came to own the villa throughout the 20th century.

Occasionally, room leasing & cafes were conducted in the house. The house was renovated during the year 2005 with the replacement of damaged timber as well as installation of sheet metal over sills to prevent water ingress.

Villa Italienborg building heritage was declared by the County of Skåne on March 8, 2002.
