Live out your hygge dreams in this cozy Norwegian fishing cottage

Rustic yet modern

It doesn’t get much more hygge than this timber cabin nestled along the rocky Norwegian coastal island of Vega. Designed by Stockholm studio Kolman Boye Architects, the three-bedroom vacation home is full of pared back Scandinavian style.

According to The Spaces, the house is designed in the tradition of Norway’s boathouses, which are known for their simple gabled roofs and ashy timber cladding. This vacation home is a luxurious step up, though, thanks to its new construction and intense attention to rustic-meets-modern details.

The interior is designed for maximum coziness. Its walls are clad in whitewashed timber planks that complement the pale wood floors. In the living room, natural-hued furniture provides a cushy place to gather around the stone fireplace.

Though each room has its charm, the home’s most striking feature is a series of large picture windows that look out onto the mountains and sea. For those who want a true respite (there’s no TV or wifi), you can rent the house for $617 a night.
