I quite often read about ‘Scandinavian inspired’ homes overseas, but never have I seen one as Scandinavian as this! The contemporary wood clad cabin designed by Koto wouldn’t look out of place in any Nordic country, couple this with the woodland and lakeside location and you are immediately transported to the beautiful nature I so love about the region. 
A British start-up, Koto prides itself on designing prefabricated cabins ‘that exude a sense of calm where users can relax and be inspired, whilst feeling connected to the great outdoors’. Described as a ‘Scandinavian sanctuary’, this cabin is set in Norfolk woodland on Fritton Lake and invites the new owner to getaway from it all and at the weekends or holidays, take wintery walks, ‘njuta’ from log fires and relax in the lakeside sauna before taking a dip in the lake. The only thing that’s missing are the moose! 
Now all that’s left to do is fill it with your most loved get-away essentials. For me – that would be board games, books, blankets, sheepskins, candles, slippers, some delicious cheeses and a bottle of red wine. Oh, and my favourite people! 
What would you add to this cabin to make it your very own sanctuary? 
Would you like dream about other escapes this Monday morning? Of course you do! Check out the cabin archive or dive-in to these rural retreats: 
On 1st February I’ll be starting a #30daysofNjuta challenge on my instagram. The challenge is centred around the Swedish word ‘Njuta’ which means to ‘savour’ – the subject of my new book (*ad for my own work). In my mind, February is one of the toughest months of the year so why not join in and find small pockets of happiness in the everyday, Swedish style? Absolutely no purchase of my book necessary (it’s available in most libraries now, if it’s not in yours yet, please do put in a request if you fancy a read although not required for the challenge!). I hope you’ll join in, the more the merrier! 
Have a happy Monday!
