Bruno Mathsson’s Swedish Cottage

I am sorry for cutting it short today, not gonna lie, I am a little bit tired after the long flight and leaving again tomorrow morning 6AM for a few days full of Danish design. I had planned to work on the flight, but unfortunately no wifi on-board.

We ended up spending my last weekend of the summer in the cabin in Big Bear. The cabin is set on a hillside overlooking the lake, there is basically nothing better than to wake up early and sit with a cup of warm coffee and watch the sunrise from the deck. Last week I shared that we have been thinking of giving the cabin a little makeover, it is super cozy as it is, but with a few updates here and there it could be even more perfect. Obviously, I would love to make a more Scandi style – and literally as we sat talking about what we wanted to do, an email with Smålands Skinnmanufaktur’s new images ticked into my mailbox. Speak about perfect timing.  

The scene is set among pine trees on the Swedish west coast in a cottage that used to be owned by Bruno Mathsson himself, well actually he designed it… in 1960 – and the vibe, is just what I want for the Big Bear cabin. Bright and airy. Lots of natural materials; wood (obvi), leather and linens. Now the only question is, how do I get one of those amazing daybeds into my suitcase?
