Peek Inside a Minimal Getaway in Sweden

, , , , , , By Catherine


This is the gorgeous summerhouse of Gabriella Gustafson, one half of the famous Stockholm-based design duo TAF studio.

The creative lady imagined and built this getaway by the sea in northern Gotland, Sweden, for her family of five. She won’t hide that the inspiration came from a garbage container, and she truly made the best of it – The building is simple, durable and low maintenance. The interior is exclusively built with timber panels, while the exterior is clad with metal sheets.

Gabriella furnished the place in a minimal and understated way, with just the essentials. I spot the Ambit pendant lamp and the Wood lamp from Muuto, as well as the Pastille table from Fogia – All are products designed by TAF.

Modest and relatively basic, built with functionality at its core, but with unassuming charm and a beautiful simplicity – Lovely!

    Hi! Lovely house?
    What kind of wood is the interior panels made of, and are they stained with something? White pigmentet warnish or something else?
    Kind regards,
