At first glance Scandinavia may seem like an odd place to look for summer house inspiration, but consider that people living in a climate where summer is so short must surely know how to make the most of it. Case in point: these three beautiful Scandinavian holiday houses, full of inspiration for bringing a little Nordic summer style into your own space.
This dreamy bohemian cabin, located in the Stockholm archipelago, is the summer home of a Swedish designer. See the whole thing at My Scandinavian Home.
This dreamy Swedish cottage, painted a soothing white on the inside and a striking black on the outside, comes complete with an outdoor kitchen and shower. See more photos at Skona Hem.
This Swedish cottage measures only 15 square meters (161 square feet), but also boasts plenty of lovely spots for spending time outside. See the full tour at Nordic Design.
And finally there's this beautiful Danish beach house from Alt No. 67, also painted white on the inside and black on the outside, which seems to be something of a trend among Scandinavian holiday homes. Whatever the reason, it's certainly lovely.
