A Swedish Classic: Little red cottage

This week is a tribute to the last days of Summer.

What would a Swedish Summer be without the classic little red cottage, or “stuga” in Swedish. Sweden has a real love affair with red cottages with white trims. I’ve noticed that many of you who live abroad are very interested in Swedish culture. I think this is great, and am more than happy to show you the tastiest parts of our Swedish Summer sweets :) In the future, I’d love to have a little red cottage far away in no-mans-land where I can escape the stress and noise of the city. It would be even better with a pier nearby, so that you could just go down and take a dip in the lake :)

A red Swedish cottage is my idea of a perfect Summer place. What’s yours??

PS. Don’t miss my Guest Inspiration this week – a guaranteed exciting post from one of my favourite bloggers :)

LOVE M

        Röda stugor,röda hus viaar den verkliga svenska sidan.Jag är uppvuxen i malmö men när jag för första gången fick uppleva en sommar stuga i sverige var det helt underbart.Jag fick uppleva något helt annat.Jag älskar Sverige och man behöver inte alls vara rasist för att man älskar sott land och sjunger nationalsången.Jag själv är född i ett annat land men kom till sverige som liten.Jag saknar den gammla
        sverige och den fridfullheten jag kännde som barn.Idag är det inte alls detsamma.Synd.Me bra skrivet

    I’ve always had the dream of a little cabin on a lake in the Mountains of my home state of Montana. But a liitle red cottage in Sweden will work just as well. I love the post, Maria!
