An idyllic white and wood Scandinavian style cabin

Wouldn't it be a dream to do up a summer cabin? I'm forever creating moodboards in my mind  - white floors, sheepskins, a sofa next to a roaring fire, an outdoor bathroom....(what does yours look like?). Perhaps we can all take some inspiration from John and Juli Baker's idyllic summer cottage overlooking Lake Huron in Canada? As owners of Mjölk, which sells 'pure, honest, and essential' items for the home with a gallery exhibiting 'work by artists and artisans from Scandinavia and Japan', it makes sense that the recently updated (see previous pictures here) country retreat has a Scandinavian look and feel to it.  Think white washed walls and floors and plenty of natural wood. Let's take a tour...

Pared back and simple yet super cosy. Everything that a rural retreat should be. 

Could you imagine spending your weekends and holidays here? 

Almost all the items you see in John and Juli's cabin are available at Mjölk - perfect!

For more inspiration in a similar style you might also want to check out their Toronto apartment.  And there's an entire archive dedicated to beautiful Scandinavian style cabins here (if this home comes up first just scroll past it). Feel free to dream away. You never know when that second home might crop up! Or perhaps you already have a summer cottage - in which case we'd love to see pictures?!

And that folks, is it from me - oh, except for an incredibly exciting give-away this weekend - so stay tuned and don't forget to stop by!

Right, better get packing for my trip to London and Norway now - eeeee, so excited!

Have a wonderful weekend and see you Monday!


  1. Every time I visit your site feels like a little vacation. I come away feeling refreshed and breathing a little easier. And at the same time remembering all the reasons I love my own home so much.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    1. That makes me so happy to hear Barb - I try to make My Scandinavian Home a little corner of the world where we can all come to escape for a little while each day (and that goes for our homes too, right? :) Have a lovely weekend too. /Niki

  2. I adore this cottage. I can imagine how relaxing and rejuvenating it would be to spend time in a place like this.

  3. The natural wood finishes in the kitchen look amazing!

  4. I love it!! Thanks for sharing a Canadian home.

    1. I was so excited to discover it! I hope I can visit Canada in person one day.

  5. Well, I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in writing this article. Im positive that it will be very popular. It has good and valuable content which is very rare these days. I am hoping the same best work from you in the future as well. Thanks...
