Swedish Farmhouse

Could you live like this?

I know the Gaines have made "Modern Farmhouse" a household name, but my cottage dreams tend to take me back to Europe over and over again.  (Not that you need a European address to live like one!)

This restored farmhouse in Sweden is one of my all time favorite homes.  It feels so light, so airy, and so wonderfully inviting and cozy.  What do you think?  Could you go for a modern cottage like this one?
