A Scandinavian summerhouse

Swedish mag Hus&Hem this month features what I would think of as the classic Scandinavian summerhouse – the kind that thousands of families flee to from the city every weekend at this time of year. To say that I am jealous of this cultural tradition would be a massive understatement; imagine how much more bearable the working week would be if you could hit the road at the end of it and stay here. This place has got the studied informality of Scandinavian design down to a tee – a white shell with lots of colourful accessories; a few old pieces plus a handful of contemporary classics. I will be thinking of its lucky owners as I spend another weekend in the grimy city. (But at least, come December, I will get, ooh, six hours of daylight. Yeah! Take that, Scandis!)
