A Swedish country home at Christmas

Friday, 9 December 2016

As promised, I've got the most beautiful Christmas home tour to share with you today. Located in Vetlanda, Småland, here in southern Sweden, this wonderful turn of the century country house belongs to Sofia, who has been painstakingly renovating it back to its former glory. Think magnificent period features, white floors and walls, a roaring fire and lovely, subtle festive touches including a Christmas tree with pure white candles, paper star lanterns, pine wreaths and the fresh scent of hyacinths. Carina Olander and Anna Truelsen paid a visit and captured these beautiful images for the great Swedish country magazine Lantliv. How magical would it be to spend Christmas here?!

Oh so lovely and cosy, don't you think?

Apart from, well everything, I especially love the coffee table which looks like it's been made from a door?

Is there anything that caught your eye?

A few items from Sofia's house I know and love: porch / conservatory - paper star lantern, woven jute rug. sitting room - this white linen sofa is similar, sheepskin throw, the Z1 pendant is similar.

And before I head off for the weekend, here's a little Christmas link love:

This Swedish country home decorated for Christmas is an old favourite of mine!

9 ways to decorate with eucalyptus (my favourite festive foliage!).

A gentle yet giant DIY Christmas wreath.

Moss hearts. So simple to create, so pretty!
This merry garland makes me, er, merry!

Alternative Christmas trees for small spaces.

Looking for a personal pressie? how about entering this give-away to win a Danish typographic poster?

All christmassed out already (or never been into it in the first place)?! How about hanging out (literally) here?!

Have you got any fun plans for the weekend?! P is taking me away somewhere as a birthday surprise and I have no idea where. All I know is that I need a long formal evening gown and we're staying over night somewhere...?! So intriguing! Any guesses?!

I hope you have a great couple of days and see you Monday!

Win a typographic poster from Kortkartellet!

Thursday, 8 December 2016

Looking for a truly personal Christmas present? I could have found just the thing! Driven by a passion for travel and design, Copenhagen based design company Kortkartellet develop wonderful typographical prints of cities, regions, and countries from all over the world as well as a selection of fab Scandinavian letters. Designed and produced in Denmark, each poster is developed with a unique sense of design, a touch of humour and a whole ton of love! I've been putting the poster of 'Skåne' (the southernmost county I live in here in Sweden) to the test in my home and love the use of typography to highlight each town - such a great twist on a traditional map! I also chose Æ simply because I'm fascinated by this Danish letter (it's pronounced 'eh'!) and looks pretty cool don't you think? And the good news?! Kortkartellet is offering you the chance to win a 50 x 70 poster in dark grey of your choice! Find out how to enter below.....
