The extraordinary 'Ordinary House'

I have a real penchant for houses tucked away in a forest somewhere, how about you? One day I hope my dream of renovating a Scandinavian retreat by a lake or the sea will be realised. In the meantime, I'll  store away inspiration from homes like this beautiful black wood paneled cabin. Named 'The Ordinary House' it is really anything but ordinary, in fact it's a bit of an architectural feat and simple stunning inside. Could you spend your weekends here?

There are a couple of things that caught my eye. Firstly the Eames Side Chairs (try LiveAuctioneers for vintage ones like the ones here or Design Collectors). And secondly the bright coloured tribal-inspired rugs and textiles in the sitting room which are so now and create such a warm and cosy atmosphere (Anthropology and Loom Rugs sell a beautiful selection).

Is there anything in particular which catches your eye?

Other retreats I absolutely love include this sea-side cabin in the Stockholm archipelagos, a white and wood holiday home, and a Finnish chalet. And so many others here!

The photographer behind these beautiful images of The Ordinary House, Björn Lofterud also sells wonderful prints here.

Quick reminder: have you had a chance to enter the give-away to win a Rosendahl Monkey by Danish designer Kay Bojesen yet? The competition is open to everyone worldwide - I wouldn't want you to miss out!

Have a lovely day!


  1. le bonheur est dans cette maison.

  2. gaaaahhhh... I'm agree with you that it is an extraordinary, even it's an ordinary house. I love inside and outside of this house. can't imagine how fresh the air in the morning and how quite at nite. It's must be the best place to escape from everything.

  3. All of it- that is what I like. But especially their attention to the tall ceilings. They have made excellent use of this feature throughout. A mountain or seaside hideaway is sounding better and better by the minute.

  4. Goodness its perfect! I could totally live in this house - only would I never make it in the Woods ha ha

  5. Nice tour,Good Home interior designing and architecture!

  8. I think I love everything in this house and a stunning location, what a dream!
