S W E D E N in w i n t e r
An old barn, just as in Sven Nordqvists fantastic book 'Julgröten' (Its a childrens book, however the illustrations are so wonderful that I still enjoy reading it - I fish it out of my bookshelf in my old room every year around christmas).
OLD and lovely looking farm in Sweden. I really like the combination of colours. Most often one finds a much darker shade of green. Nevertheless, the green of the doors and the sand-colour of the walls and windows feels very harmonic!
Around 1900: Country house Kungshamn of the painter Gustaf Cederström.
There is something special about black doors, a subtle elegance.
