The extraordinary 'Ordinary House'

I have a real penchant for houses tucked away in a forest somewhere, how about you? One day I hope my dream of renovating a Scandinavian retreat by a lake or the sea will be realised. In the meantime, I'll  store away inspiration from homes like this beautiful black wood paneled cabin. Named 'The Ordinary House' it is really anything but ordinary, in fact it's a bit of an architectural feat and simple stunning inside. Could you spend your weekends here?

There are a couple of things that caught my eye. Firstly the Eames Side Chairs (try LiveAuctioneers for vintage ones like the ones here or Design Collectors). And secondly the bright coloured tribal-inspired rugs and textiles in the sitting room which are so now and create such a warm and cosy atmosphere (Anthropology and Loom Rugs sell a beautiful selection).

Is there anything in particular which catches your eye?

Other retreats I absolutely love include this sea-side cabin in the Stockholm archipelagos, a white and wood holiday home, and a Finnish chalet. And so many others here!

The photographer behind these beautiful images of The Ordinary House, Björn Lofterud also sells wonderful prints here.

Quick reminder: have you had a chance to enter the give-away to win a Rosendahl Monkey by Danish designer Kay Bojesen yet? The competition is open to everyone worldwide - I wouldn't want you to miss out!

Have a lovely day!
