Small but beautiful summer house we dream
This charming house is owned by Hans and Cathrine Edblad, a Swedish designer couple. They wanted this house to be their summer retreat, the place where they can go whenever they need to relax, to get away from everything but also where they can feel closer to nature and where they can work without being disturbed.
The owners designed almost everything themselves. It’s the advantage of working in the domain. You get to design everything exactly the way you want but you also have nobody to blame but you if it turns out badly. As seen from the outside, the house seems old and not particularly interesting. But, when you go inside, everything changes. The interior is very light, bright and stylish. The atmosphere is airy and very calming and the décor is modern and very well organized.
The house was designed as a flexible space and it was originally comprised of two separate volumes. Those were later combined to form a single structure. The couple built most of the things you see inside and outside by themselves. They made the house perfectly suit their needs and preferences. They made the interior light and airy and used minimalist furniture with classical details. There’s not much to see inside but everything is beautifully organized and everything has its own place, not to mention that it’s all very beautiful and charming.
