Another reason I’ve come around to the idea of having a weekend cabin is that I’m in love with everything Scandinavian right now. Fjords, painted cottages, hygge, cool design, fika, Gustavian furniture, . . . I could go on and on.
Then when we moved to the Pacific Northwest and began exploring the area, I saw how similar the landscape is to Scandinavia – pine forests, alpine lakes, snowcapped mountains . . . and it dawned on me that I could actually have a bit of that lifestyle right here in the U.S. And the search began.
