COUNTRY-HOUSE LIFE IN SWEDEN © Lund-Molle WHITEWASH STARS FROM THE FAMILY COAT OF ARMS ADORN ITS WALLS Krapperup Castle is now owned by the Gyllenstjerna family, whose name occurs in Hamlet as "Guildenstern." This remodeled 16th-century home is situated on the rocky headland of Kullen, northwest Skane, one of the oldest estates in Sweden. The interior is filled with many art treasures. Photograph by J. Stenhardt THE 20TH CENTURY HAS QUIETLY PENETRATED THIS KITCHEN Less conspicuous than the ceiling lights, however, are the linoleum floor covering and cooking range, which has been fitted on to the old-style oven. This cookroom at Olivehult, with its gleaming copper utensils and whitewashed, horizontally timbered walls, is quite typical of the Swedish country houses (see illustration, page 28).
