Inspirations from another Swedish Cottage

There is something so magical about a modern Swedish cottage, their black exteriors against the green forest, or the white snow is so beautiful. We just got back home from another 2 days of reno, and we can’t wait to share the photos with you tomorrow. While you wait, take a look at a Swedish Cabin that’s been a constant inspiration for us during our renovation:

These photographs were taken by Rachael Smith, who also shot the interior of Eero Aarino’s house.

These floors look great, I’m still curious about what they are…

I love the simple grey sheepskin throw on the pine floors.

The furniture is very simple, and for the most part potentially affordable. The sofa is very similar to the Karlstad Sofa, and that wooden shelf could be an Ekby. Throw in a sheepskin and a Bertoia chair, and you essentially have their living set.

I love that fireplace, and the white & blue runner (we still need one for our kitchen)
