Steal This Look: Simple Scandi Children's Room

Issue 27 · Scandi Summerhouse · July 3, 2012

One summer, I found myself in a friend's seaside summerhouse just outside of Gothenburg, Sweden. As I stood in the tiny kitchen, surveying the interior, I couldn't help but admire the efficient use of space throughout the cottage.

At this similar summerhouse in Söderfors, walls and wood floors are painted bright white to open up the small cottage. We especially like the children's room, which features twin metal beds, stepstools as bedside tables, and a frothy tulle pendant light. For more information on the cottage rental, see Widerlov & Co.
