Late summer days in August..
August is when the summer has matured; the sunny days have finally warmed us up, the evening gets slowly darker, but we want to hold on. Before preparing for candlelight indoors, we want to take every opportunity to chill outside. Let’s stretch the summer out!
The summer house where I have been staying this season is very typically Scandinavian. The style, named “landstil” in Swedish or Norwegian, means “country style” – think wooden houses, coloured brown, red or yellow.
The great thing about these old-time places is that you can find a lot of beautifully colourful china and decor – a great excuse for a little journey into time for vintage afternoon tea.
Although the summer house was old fashioned, the quality was still very good. And after so many years, everything remained intact and the handcrafted details were simply beautiful. There were hemp chairs, mix-and-match patterns on furnishings and steel kitchenware.
P.s. If you’re wondering where those delicious buns are from, you’re in luck! Find them in Putney, London at Bla Bar.
