Preserve

It is so wonderfully nice when you preserve timber walls, especially in a cabin, and furnish with simple wooden furniture, predominantly in white. Old and new come together in a sympathetic manner.

Built-in

It is extremely appealing with built-in bookshelves along a wall. Nice, simple & a good solution – a good way to sort everything, preferably in small storage boxes in uniform color, and in a structured way. It calms down the whole impression in the room.

Villa Italienborg

Villa Italienborg is a house in Mölle, in the municipality of Höganäs / Sweden. It was built in 1909-10 in an imaginative Italian style. The facade is lined with white & red eternite tiles in a checkered pattern.

The house was built by a scrap dealer, who quickly sold it to a tailor, whose family came to own the villa throughout the 20th century.

Occasionally, room leasing & cafes were conducted in the house. The house was renovated during the year 2005 with the replacement of damaged timber as well as installation of sheet metal over sills to prevent water ingress.

Villa Italienborg building heritage was declared by the County of Skåne on March 8, 2002.

National Day

Two historical events were crucial to our country & hence the celebration of Sweden’s National Day.
June 6, 1523 Gustav Vasa is elected king of Sweden. Sweden then broke out of the Kalmar Union with Denmark & ​​Norway & became an independent country with its own king & a new royal dynasty – the Vaasa family.
June 6, 1809, Parliament wrote under the form of government that laid the foundation for modern Sweden & the foundations of our state, which paved the way for the democracy Sweden is known for today.

National Day is also a secular holiday. Which makes it possible for everyone, regardless of belief, to wind up around National Day.
It strengthens the image of a country based on shared values ​​& democracy – important pillars of our development. We also celebrate our fantastic nature with the universal right, the long period of peace & freedom, the modern industry, our cultural heritage & architecture.

In the spring of 1893 the first spring party was held at Skansen in Stockholm – the party got its end on June 6 with a big flag party. Flag Day 1983 became our official national day & from 2005 also national holiday.

Modular

For those who want to build a modular house on their own, there are a plethora of different models to choose from. Log cabin or turnkey winter-boned house – the freedom & creativity is great, as long as you follow construction & design rules. In Sweden the rule for these kind of house models from Attefallshus, has to be max be 30 square meters in outer dimensions.

Greenery

Greenery surroundings & walks are things that have calm the nerves. Not surprisingly of course as it’s a well known fact.
Isolatation & the limited space that’s been available, have made the world seem very small. I hope it’s over now, even though we have to continue to be careful.

Calmness

It takes a lot of patience, when you’re being reduced to one’s neighbourhood, and only go out for groceries & exercise. It’s a useful experience, given the hectic life we live today. And one can wonder why. Time for reflection & calmness has helped me appreciate the simple things around me much more. Grateful.
