Welcome to the house of Carl Larsson and
his spouse!
That is what is written above the
entrance to Carl and Karin Larsson’s beloved Lilla Hyttnäs
in Sundborn, just outside Falun.
  Karin’s father, Adolf Bergöö, gave Lilla Hyttnäs to
Carl and Karin in 1888. The couple transformed the
tiny timbered cottage, which was built in 1837,
into one of the world’s best-known artist’s residences.
Lilla Hyttnäs has remained in the Larsson family for
generations and is now managed by the Carl
och Karin Larsson Family trust.
