An Unusual House in the Countryside: A Place You’ll Never Want to Leave

The family bought and restored the old house, retaining historical elements in the interior and adding several Scandinavian accents. The results really impressed me.
This house is completely made of wood. The floor and ceiling are painted white. And vintage furniture is in harmony with modern appliances.

The living room, where you can talk slowly. By the way, you know what else surprised me in this house? There is no TV and computer. However, in an atmosphere conducive to rest and heart-to-heart conversations, such household appliances are unlikely to be useful.

It’s a bedroom. It’s simple and no frills. A place to sleep and relax after a hard day.

View from the window. No double-glazed windows, just restored wooden frames. How do you like this house? Would you like to wake up here and have breakfast looking out this window?
