Inspired by the idyllic paintings
of Swedish artist Carl Larsson, this family retreat has all
the warmth and coziness of a summer day in the Swedish countryside.
There are five intimate cottages clustered around a garden,
each unique in it's own way, yet united in style and scale.
Vivid colors, whimsical murals, and Scandinavian antiques all
blend together in this charming enclave. Some cottages are
remodels and some are new construction designed to blend in
with the old. Many local artisans were used to create this
very unique and personal hideaway. Designward orchestrated
this special project from the planning stage of the new buildings
to the final installation of the hand painted door stops (they
are characters from Wind in the Willows).
