Name: Malo
Location: just outside Stockholm, Sweden

I live with my husband and three children in a small house built in 1932. My house is situated just outside Stockholm, Sweden. It's a so-called "egna hem" which means "own home" which was a movement in Sweden in the 30s that gave workers the opportunity to build and own their own home. We bought our house from the family who built it and we are doing our best not to destroy the soul of the past while we at the same time have to adjust to modern life. I love our house. It's the sweetest. I mean look at it! It's small but it has a lot of soul.

Thanks, Malo!
