If there’;s any place worth giving up running water and electricity for, it might just be this one-room cottage on a 200-year-old Norwegian farm. Restored by Norwegian author and preservation enthusiast Else Rønnevig, the traditional, green-roofed structure supplies all the essentials of a cozy, relaxing afternoon—just look at that hearty fireplace in the center and the most alluring alcove, where a well-cushioned daybed and shelves of books await. Old and rustic it may be, but the cottage also goes bold with colors. The antique bed, for example, was painted a deep yellow ochre. And over in red-walled bathroom annex, gold stars jump out of a bright ultramarine ceiling. Have a look.
