Simple Swedish summer house

Posted on Wed, 27 Apr 2011 by midcenturyjo

Remember those simple summer holidays? The ones where you packed up the car with all the essentials and just a few little luxuries and made the trek to your holiday spot. Year after year your family always stayed at the same cottage or shack. Simple, basic but oh so special. Days were spent lazing about, swimming or hiking, winding down and enjoying the slow life. I do and I wish I had been able to spend my summer days in a house in the woods like this one in Sweden. Simple but stylish, nothing that isn’t necessary and just enough to enjoy your stay comfortably. From water to couch in your still damp swimmers. Picking herbs for lunch from the overgrown patch by the back door. Cooking up a storm and relaxing afterwards with a good book or good friends. Bliss. This lovely summer house belongs to Swedish stylist Mikael Beckman. Unfortunately it is time for him to say goodbye to it and he is selling. Maybe a group of us can pool our pennies and buy it. Link to the sale site here.

  

  

  

  

  

  

I can already see myself sitting on the couch in my pajamas with a great book, walking barefoot to the kitchen for a drink, and on a hot summer day running to jump in the lake.

beautifully fresh and calm. great photos… not quite sure I could live there though. And, really, not sure about the white painted floorboards in real life. perfect eye candy though.

Simply stunning. When can I move in! ­čÖé

What a beautiful home. We love the Shaker-like simplicity to the white interior and the warmth added from touches of natural wood. Thanks for sharing!

Nice location but so much white…really! That single bedroom with two beds looks like a hospital room.
