Synopsis
The house was in very bad condition, piled with ancient furniture that the previous owners didn’t want, but Anneli was delighted to find a few 18th century antiques left along with the junk. With all the walls papered in a bumpy green paper ‘like some illness on the skin’ the house, which was originally a fisherman’s cottage, had been in the same family for generations. Anneli and Anders pulled down walls and extended the house using local builders, but Anneli spent many hours mixing concrete and building herself so that they could move in with their three sons, John, Magnus and William, after only four months. The house is now an elegant mix of traditional and modern, designed in Anneli’s own style.
