Summer house in Skåne 2

I like the bold colours and the open spaces in this Swedish summer house, located in the region of Skåne. It used to be a typical farmhouse, but the house is now opened-up with large windows.

I have seen these photos in Sköna Hem before, but I found them again on this blog - where they have a post about Scandinavian interiors - beautiful and milkey white.

How cool is this Swedish summer house drawn by Sandell Sanberg? It even has a loft and an inner, sheltered courtyard!
