Thank you to everyone for the messages of 'condolence' following MOTH's dreadful paint mishap. He's slowly recovering, although still in need of lots of TLC! So after all the drama, I need a relaxing, gentle post & this beautiful home certainly provides that.
In the middle of a forest, on a tiny island in Sweden, a designer tore down a derelict cottage and built a family home and studio in its place. Inspired by Asian wooden houses, he designed the building to be off the ground on stilts and built it almost entirely from local pine.
The aroma of the freshly milled timbers positively jumps out of these photos and the setting on the lakeshore just divine. I would be so interested to revisit this home in the middle of the Scandanavian winter to see how it looks surrounded by snow & ice, with the warm glow of candlelight shining through the windows.
