When Michael Stokkeby bought this cottage in Småland, Sweden, it needed an extensive renovation as it wasn’t renovated since the 1970’s. With regard to the interior of the cottage, it was important to Michael that it would be easy and breath summer.
On the floors are carpets, furniture is old and often a bit worn or made from untreated wood.
Michael uses this lovely house to escape his busy city life during the weekends and holidays. After a few hours’ drive he can forget about everyday life. With a beautiful forest nearby, the cottage has become the perfect place for relaxation and inspiration!
Almost every corner of the house is decorated for relaxation. A comfortable sofa, a bed, a hammock, a recliner: there are lots of places to relax.
The cottage has been painted with Falun red paint with white trims and window frames. Falun is the name of a Swedish, deep red paint well known for its use on wooden cottages and barns. The paint originated from the copper mine at Falun in Dalarna, Sweden. The traditional colour remains popular today due to its effectiveness in preserving wood
