A FINNISH STYLE COTTAGE IN CANADA

mjolk-1

This is the beautiful cottage of the owners of Mjölk, a Scandinavian design shop in Toronto. The original cottage was “musty, moldy, and stuck in the seventies” but an extensive renovation transformed it in a lovely summer home. The whole inspiration for this cottage was the “Finnish summer home”. The owners explain: “There is a large Finnish and Estonian community in Ontario, in fact we have the highest amount of Finns outside of Finland. We liked the idea of bringing back the cottage to it’s original state with natural pine floors, and simple practical furniture. We wanted the pieces we chose to furnish the cottage with to feel as if they had always been there.”
