The owners of this home in Sweden fell in love with it even by the photos in the sale ad on the Internet – for the viewing they even bought a plane ticket from London, where they had lived for some time before. The live acquaintance with the house did not disappoint: the old 150-year-old…

This country cottage in the Swedish outback is quite tiny, but it has one unique feature. These are, of course, his windows! Their original arched shape reminds of those old times in which the house was built, and also distinguishes it from others. As for the interiors, the atmosphere of a typical Scandinavian summer house…

Scandinavian country or summer cottage is a very distinctive and incredibly charming direction in Scandinavian design. These charming wooden houses seem to be lost in time, and many of them are really over 100 years old. In appearance, as well as in the interiors, their owners try to change almost nothing, only repair and update,…

Most likely, this old village church in Sweden would have had to be demolished if not for Josephine and Ilias, who bought it a few years ago to turn it into their summer residence.

The Scandinavians in their country cottages try to keep the cozy atmosphere of past times as long as possible and are in no hurry to update their interiors much, even if more and more scuffs appear in them. Today we have just such a rural home in Sweden, where time seems to have stopped. An…

After living in Stockholm for several years, Emily and Fredrik decided they wanted to go back to their roots in the province of Dalarna where they grew up. The search was not quick: it took almost a year before the couple found their dream home – a traditional cottage with a yellow exterior, 3-meter ceilings…

This house near Barcelona is very tiny and can accommodate only two people, as there is only one bedroom.
