Since we won’t be able to take overseas trips anytime soon, I thought it might be fun to check out architecture from other areas. So let’s take a trip across the pond to see the exteriors of Scandinavian houses.
A cute little row of white cottages line a cobblestone street. Doesn’t it look like a scene out of a movie?
Cheerful flowers and pretty little lamp posts line the sidewalk, creating an idyllic setting.
One thing I love about the exteriors of Scandinavian houses is the more generous use of color. Since my house is yellow, I of course like this one. An added bonus is the kitty on the steps.
Earlier this year my family and I talked about going to Norway in the next couple of weeks. Stavanger looks like a cool place to visit. Let me know if you’ve been to a Scandinavian country and where you went!
How could you not smile walking past all these bright and cheery homes with lace curtains in the window and fish scale roof tiles?
Spring is in the air at this country Swedish home with its quaint thatched roof.
Lots of flowers in the summer – I wonder if that’s due to the longer winters and darker days?
Wood cut trim reveals a Gothic vibe with a bright blue roof.
It’s nice to see clapboard siding. So many of the older homes in our area are being covered with vinyl siding. I get that it’s lower maintenance, but I miss the original siding.
Here’s another thatched roof on a red house with a charming cottage garden. I’d love to see inside, wouldn’t you?
Who knows if my family will ever make that trip to Norway – but it’s always fun to dream.
