Urnatur, Sweden. “The wood hermitage is a place for relaxation and reflection. Here in the forest you can enjoy the luxury of simplicity, living in unique hand-crafted cottages, or in a tree house, without electricity. Sit down by the fireplace and savour the moment. The soft light of the kerosene lamp and the scent of boiled coffee readily guide you to intimate conversations, far from everyday pressures.”

I’ve seen this house a few times online/in books but none have been photographed as well to capture the interior. Good ol’ Air BnB! :)

There are many aspects of this Cob House I like - as my general goal is to create an almost “modernist” take on Cob…stepping away from the “Hobbity” vibe we see so often.

Built by and lived in by artists Christopher and Malissa Tack, this house is parked on rented land in beautiful Snohomish, Washington and is approximately 140 square feet of living space. It is equipped with solar panels and a 40-gallon water tank, and their gray water is hooked to a gray water well outside. They even use natural soaps to limit their damage on the environment. The space has eleven windows, bringing in a lot of natural light, which also limits their energy use.

a one-of-a-kind home accessory. this beautiful planter/shelving unit would be perfect to hold air plants or other terrariums, found objects, or even tiny tea light candles. the wrought iron hooks look gorgeous against the recycled wood backing. love.
