This late 19th century fishermans cottage on the Swedish westcoast, is a typical "enkelstuga" ("one room cottage")The ground floor used to consist of a living, kitchen and small bedroom. The new owner wanted a bigger and more generous space and decided to remove one wall to the bedroom and extend the kitchen. When removing the inner walls they found the original timber walls in good condition and decided to keep them visible and make them a part of the design. Although the space is small this kitchen fits everything needed. A large gas stow, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and plenty of space for storage. To fit a the big dining table (240x100 custom made out of timber from an antique dock from the north of Spain!), a kitchen sofa was built. It has plenty of build-in storage and this small kitchen now seats up to 14!
The kitchen units are handpainted in a soft light blue to go with the rest of the house. The theme here is more romantic light rather then the more frequently used marine style. The living room has a bespoke cupboard/library made in the same style as the kitchen and hand painted in a similar colour.
