Falu red

There is this certain color, a very specific red nuance, which is called “Falu red”, or Faluröd.

The red paint is mainly used for exteriors and is usually used for small cottages and/or summer houses. You’ve probably seen pictures of idyllic Swedish cottages with a white wooden fence and white house knots.

Usually there are red, yellow and blue boat houses along the coast, but that red nuance is a bit different. Still characteristic for (mainly) the Swedish west coast.
