Hello — Lori from automatism here, with the perfect summer getaway for you today. The design of this charming Swedish summer home — by the architects Thomas Sandell and Anders Landstrom — was based on the classic wooden house of Scandinavian architecture. Built according to traditional methods of construction, its roughly squared logs were slotted together by tenon and mortise joints — not a nail or screw was used in the entire house. Because this was the prototype house of a firm of architects, Nils Tunebjer, the proud owner of this house, actually bought it at auction! He then had to dismantle and store it (a feature of these traditional wood houses is that they can be dismantled and lifted easily) while he searched for an appropriate piece of land to install his new home. Now settled happily into its permanent locale overlooking the sea, this lovely home is a relaxed place to while away the long Swedish summers. Via Marie Claire Maison.

    That is one of my favorite magazines of all. This home definitely has the beachy vibe to it. So casual, comfortable and non-pretentious. I love that there is family in the photos too.

    When I was little, I had a best friend that lived in a yellow house. It was the colour of butter. Some people said that looking at it hurt their eyes. Every time I looked at it, it made me happy. Yellow has always been a go-to colour for me when I want to feel happy!
