Simple Comforts

I was having a flick through a lovely Taschen book on the weekend - Sweden Style - and one cottage in particular caught my eye. A sparsely decorated, light-filled little house by the sea, it was identified as Johan Brauner's cottage in Gotland, Sweden. A Google search has yielded nothing about Johan Brauner or his cottage, but it put me in mind of the many plain but lovely cottages we saw dotted through the countryside when we were in Scandinavia in 2011. Simple but enough to live in comfort. That would suit me fine.

The one above we spotted while we toured one of the fjords near Bergen by boat. The two below I photographed while we were walking through the Bergen arboretum.
