This modern Swedish cottage isn’t a typical Scandinavian one, it’s made mostly of concrete and simply furnished in soft neutral tones. The result is surprisingly warm and tranquil — the perfect space to get away from city life and enjoy the stunning scenery all around.
The living room has concrete walls and simple furniture in earthy tones, and the concrete itself has a warm shade to make the spaces cozier. There’s a traditional black hearth in the center of the room.
Concrete walls in the kitchen look harmonious with modern white cabinets and tiles, and the appliances are of stainless steel, which echoes with the shade of concrete.
In the entryway the walls are covered with concrete and so are the tops of cabinets. One of the walls is clad with natural wood to give warmth to the space.
I totally love the master bedroom, which strikes with its simplicity. All the walls except for one are covered with the same concrete, and one of them is wooden; the floor is also concrete. There’s no other furniture her except for the bed, and thanks to that this small bedroom looks airy and spacious. The faux sheepskin rug and lace on the bed give a texture to the décor.
A guest bedroom has white walls and pretty white paper lanterns. There’s a chair next to the bed and a couple of hooks to hang clothes and bags – this is Scandinavian minimalism. And again textiles like lace on the bed add an eye-catchy look.
The bathroom is covered with concrete and dark tiles, the pattern of which reminds of concrete. The appliances are stainless steel ones for minimalist décor.
Even the exterior of the cottage is covered with concrete. There’s a small deck with a dining space decorated in a simple way, with white wooden furniture.
