A SWEDISH SUMMER COTTAGE

This lovely summer cottage in Ekerö, a group of islands not far from Stockholm, belongs to Asa Myrberg. Asa is the person behind decor blog Mycasa, she certainly has a flair for interior design. I love the dining area (top image) with a table built of 1700s floor planks with a welded steel frame. Mix & match chairs are from Eames, Thonet, Artwood and Sia.

Designed primarily as a family holiday home, emphasis has been put on the outdoor areas to make the most of the summer months. The house, inspired by the traditional Balearic architecture, is decorated in a natural rustic style with mainly natural materials and colors. The floor layout is simple and practical.

THE HOUSE WITH THE PINK CHAIRS

masmallorca4

This house on Mallorca (Spain) is the perfect summer home. It is situated less than 50 meters away from the sea and there is no line between inside and outside. The pergolas on the terraces provide shade, while the thick walls keep the heat outside so it stays cool inside. Striking are the hot pink chairs which contrasts beautifully with the blue sky. The house is new but it was built with respect for tradition. The construction, although modern, comply with Mallorcan architectural guidelines and natural materials have been used that come from the area.
