A romantic log cabin with a twist

With St.Valentine's day in two days time, let's go romantic! For me there are two things that epitomise romantic. One is small, thoughtful gestures such as a little love note left behind at breakfast, or helping to pull off each others muddy wellies. The other is a romantic get away in a rural rustic retreat complete with wood burning stove and a pair of cross country skis. This is why I love this cottage. Owned and renovated by Tobias Dahl and artist Emma Netterberg, this Swedish log cabin is in Dalarna, a county famous for the handcrafted Dalarna horse. Inside it's a unique blend of modern, folk and oriental and outside it sits high up on the Tällberg slopes with a view over lake Siljan and the Dala forests.

I love how Tobias and Emma have made the interior completely their own. What an extremely, lovely and romantic place to reside.

  12. I can't even come up with words to describe how much i want to live here!

  13. Would someone help explain a couple picture details?

    I am curious about the wood burner in the kitchen: is that a single wood fired burner or is just for space heat?

    In the bathroom photo is that a foot washing stool/faucet or something else? I see the tub in the background I just do not understand the foreground.

    1. I would say the stool in the bathroom is to sit and wash on since it is right next to a tap in the wall. I am not sure about the wood burner - perhaps someone else can explain it?
