The first thing that catches your eye when approaching this lovely summer cottage in one of the Swedish villages is the beautifully manicured green garden. The owners have created a place for candlelit dinners and open-air breakfasts right under the crown of an old tree – it looks very romantic. The cottage itself was built…

It all started with Christina and Bjorn’s love for this beautiful area: the couple looked at a house to buy nearby but were more impressed by the nature and views of the local lake. That house turned out to be completely unsuitable, but instead, they found a perfect plot – on a hill and overlooking…

We are adding another home to our collection of unusual buildings converted into homes. Some 50 years ago, this yellow cottage in the Swedish countryside functioned as the only store in the village – its appearance and location by the road speak volumes about it.

Former AD Russia editor Yevgenia Mikulina acquired an old dacha near Moscow with a spacious plot, where she created a real oasis of family comfort and a place of childhood memories.

One of the main differences between Scandinavian summer cottages and the ones in Russia and Ukraine is that in northern countries they are not at all afraid of very light and even completely white interiors for their homes.
