Barn-Style Prefab in Sweden Is As Dreamy as You'd Expect

For a recent project in the Stockholm suburb of Lidingö, local firm Franson Wreland puts a prefab spin on the traditional Swedish farmhouse. The three-bedroom home is entirely constructed of components built in a warehouse 260 miles away, but looks totally at home on a site that also includes two matching, 160-square-foot cottages. The main residence, arranged like a modern barn with a hayloft, dons a striking green exterior, a hue created from adding a tint to the traditional Swedish barn-red mineral paint. Inside, the all-white interiors favored by heaps of Scandi homes show up again, but only to be spruced up by furniture and decor in additional, rich shades of green; a sky-blue tiled bathroom is also a pleasant surprise.
