Sorunda is an inviting little village south of Stockholm, halfway between the city and the beautiful archipelago. No wonder Brita Zackari and Kalle Zackari Wahlström, together with their two children and dogs have chosen to move here, to find peace and quiet but at the same time being fairly close to big city life. The real estate is what you would typically expect in the Swedish countryside: a pretty falurött country house and sommarstuga, built in the early 1960s.
This is a happy story, because we can see another example of a harmonious family home. While creating this wonderful and welcoming place, they stayed true to the style and atmosphere characteristic to country houses, instead of bringing something modern within the walls of a traditional building, like it sometimes happens.
I love the choice of colours, the “unfinished” wall section in the bedroom and the old antique white pieces work so well with the natural wood surfaces, rattan chairs, kilims and the lovely olive green kitchen, which must be the heart of the home.
A good old Finnish sauna cannot be missing from a place like this and the pretty little sommarstuga with a kayak at its side, hiding in the back of the garden, is waiting to be used again when the next summer holiday begins. Shall we indulge ourselves a bit?
