This 18th century Swedish farmhouse was rapidly deteriorating when Danish architect Mette Lyng Hansen and designer Mads Odgard. Despite its tragic condition, the pair knew the key to a successful remodel was to combine subtle modern touches with Scandinavian furniture while maintaining the rustic appeal of a summer house.
Despite having a small kitchen, the duo made the most of the space by adding a butcher block kitchen island with a gas range and open shelving along the wall.
While it's not every day that you see a black door with black trim, it certainly works in this home. Not only does it provide traditional character, it creates contrast against the minimalist white walls.
