Why, hello there friends! It’s a bit of an exciting week as I’m on my way to the West Coast for a few days with Carpe Diem Beds. First stop: the pretty fishing village of Fiskebäckkil which I included in my travel guide last summer. How I’ve missed real live events, have you? These pretty summer places are quite deserted now that every has returned to the city, but there’s a real beauty about them in Autumn and winter when the nature and wildlife takes over. On the other side of Sweden, this pretty cottage in Hölö belonging to architect Ninni Ryott, is sure to be locked up for the winter. But since I refuse to let summer go until the strength in the sun’s rays finally fades, I’d love to take you on a tour! 
Built from wood and painted in Falu red, the cottage was built in 2013 and designed to match the other traditional buildings on the estate. 

It might measure a mere 45 m2 (484 f2), but Ninni has worked hard to ensure there’s plenty of space for the entire family with one large room for dining and socialising. The main living area feels extra spacious thanks to the tremendously high ceiling  wonderful white wood panel walls. 
The space has been furnished with a relaxed blend of old and new – with blue and white a central theme. 
A ladder leads up to a loft with four beds – a bunk for each member of the family! How my children would love this, they’re always asking if they can sleep in my bed and they’re 10 and 13 (but that could just be because we have a Carpe Diem one and they are amazingly luxurious!). 
What a wonderful cottage, so simple just as a Swedish summer cottage should be, yet light and airy and very cosy. 
I wouldn’t mind knocking about here all summer, how about you?
See more of Ninni’s work over at Ryott Arkitektur (I love the cabin by the sea she designed too!). 
If like me, you’re looking to prolong summer this week (hey, it’s not quite October, right?) – you might also like to check out these cottages: 
Have a great start to the week friends!
