Ermitage Summer Cabin by Septembre

View all 15 Photos

The bare minimum is all you need to bring to this summer cabin by Paris studio Septembre on the island of Trossö resting to the west coast of Sweden. Built for two, the quaint space deletes distractions and brings visitors to a pure, intimate setting. Its sauna nestles in close with a separate entrance, collected together by a useful outdoor platform. Large square windows provide maximum connection to nature and exquisite views of the sea just a few 50 meters away. The sharp black exterior is painted Swedish spruce, so simple an interior constructed of only plywood. The bed is primitive tucked into the floor with customized storage that rolls out from underneath. Everything has its purpose, though few items made the cut, and so the clients have themselves a blissful retreat accommodating only the important things….each other.

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
