Pippi of My Scandinavian Retreat has curated a portfolio of rustic modern Scandi summerhouses as inspiration for her own project.
"My handyman and I have just bought a summerhouse—50 square meters of joy on the Norwegian coast, which we are transforming into a modern Scandinavian cabin," she says. Here are a few houses from her collection; go to My Scandinavian Retreat to see more.
