This home, featured at mixr.se, is nothing less than pure country living! The house is situated outside the sunny town Karlstad in Sweden, and the couple living in it actually manage without water and sanitary sewer. However, they have broadband (!) The old log house has been passed down for generations. Current inhabitants are the eighth generation. Johan’s grandmother’s father’s cousin Hildur lived there last. Hildur’s old glasses are kept as an interior detail.
Kitchen-wise they do well with an old bench, a pantry, a wood stove and a shelf. And a refrigerator and freezer placed in a corner. The plan is however to install a proper kitchen with, of course, retro or vintage appliances. But the old wood stove will never be exchanged to an electric one. They’ve become so attached it, and it’s also one of the main heat sources in the house. Now how is this for geniune country style! And at the same time cozy, folksy and trendy.
