What is it about Scandinavia that seems so enticing and bewitching?
Maybe it's the light ....?
Perhaps it's the romantic landscapes .... the traditions of visiting summer houses, garden plots and rambling near the sea or in the woods ....
Maybe the charm lies in a simple, uncluttered architectural and design aesthetic .... or the fairy-tale quality of many Scandinavian images ...
I don't know what it is, but I know I've always been smitten. You can find some lovely links down there on the right (under the heading Northern Lights), or check out a few of these pretty posts to see what I mean:
