This Swedish cabin has been seen around the blogosphere a lot lately and I just had to chime in. You see, this house and I have a history. Sort of.
I first spotted this cabin in the magazine Ville & Casali in 2006 when I was in Italy. I couldn’t stop looking at it. It was most definitely love at first sight. I brought the magazine home, tore out my favorite photo and put it on a wall in my studio. When we moved into our current house, the same page went up in my studio again:
(my inspiration wall)
Then in the past few months – three years into my obsession – the house seems to be popping up everywhere I turn and I confess to feeling a little territorial about it. Like it’s “my” house. If the real owners were reading this, I’m sure they would find that very creepy(!)
Anyway, my desire for a weekend house all started with this one house. Seeing it around so much makes me think it may have that effect on some other people, too.
And look, it even fits in with my black & white stripe theme this week:
So that’s the story of this house and me. It’s an ongoing one and I’m hoping for a happy ending – that I’ll find something like it in the near future.
