    This cottage is a traditional Swedish torp. My grandmother grew up in a very similar cottage in Mariestad, Sweden. The children slept in the loft, there was a large (3 hole) outhouse behind d the cottage. Outhouse is gone now , lovely bathroom! Thanks for sharing this charming torp, Alex.

    The wallpaper is fine as far as I am concerned. And let’s face it, easily changed folks.

    But… I. Hate. With. A. Passion gaps in wallboards and ceilings. I get cold just looking at them. And on top of that it just looks like poor construction by doing that with the walls and ceiling. YMMV

      Those boards at the top are just a floor for the top floor so there would be no drafts. I did not see gaps anywhere. Also I am sure when you are actually there the wall paper would lend a garden feel and make the space warmed up a bit instead of just being cold white. I found this one to be an absolute delight.

    I live this little cottage! I presume you need the exterior staircase for when the snow blocks the ground floor door! I would guess that the Scandinavian love of white paint is to keep the rooms as bright as possible during the winter, when there is very little daylight, or none at all in the winter.

    looks like the way a shed should be designed

    Such a darling torp. But I am probably biased, being Scandinavian myself.
    I can assure that the house is not drafty. It would be unlivable if it was. It gets pretty cold in the winter.

    And isn’t it funny how color is interpreted differently. When I see houses with dark wood, burgundy and dark brown interiors and masses of soft accessories, I feel strangled and trapped. Light and airy interiors is much more cosy and relaxing for me.
