Nordic Getaway

Hello hello. I have been MIA for a few weeks. Holidays. Ice Storms. I’m a new Auntie!! My sister had a gorgeous little baby girl just in time to ring in the New Year!

So, here I am. Sort of. I’m officially not back until Monday, but I thought I’d keep the vacation spirit alive with this lovely little cottage somewhere deep in Sweden. (I think).

Scandinavian Getaway

Well, I don’t understand a word of Residence Magazine. But, what I did find out is that this house was designed by architect Erik Andersson and I totally love it.

So simple. The black clapboard is fantastic, so are the windows. Oh, and the sauna with a view.

The only other thing that I really want to know is what it’s like to live with white floors. Anyone??

House Morran by Johannes Norlander

Architect Johannes Norlander did a complete renovation of this summer house on an island outside Gothenburg in Sweden.

The exterior is clad in tar coated plywood – I’ve seen the look before but never knew the material. The inside is pine.

I love the contrast of the black exterior to raw wood feel on the inside.

Modern Danish Country House

Oh, this is a nice one. Good way to start the year.

This Danish country home was shown in Elle Decoration in December 2011 and photographed by Wichmann + Bendsten. I spotted it on StilInspiration.

The floor planks are insanely wide and I love the cut of wood. Not sure what it is, but it’s so natural and textured. How beautiful.

The entire house has a great mix of lived-in-feel + minimal design.
