my scandinavian home: A beautiful Swedish home in Österlen

A beautiful Swedish home in Österlen

Thursday, 21 June 2012

Tomorrow is a big day in Sweden; Midsummer's eve. It's always a wonderful day (even though, by tradition the temperature drops by 10 degrees with horizontal rain!!). I've been learning how to make the midsummer wild flower crown for my two little girls hair and we'll all be leaping around a maypole like frogs (don't ask) out in the countryside. So to celebrate the occasion, here's a lovely home from a beautiful part of this region in Skåne - Österlen.

I spy shabby chic dressers, beautiful mosaic tiled floors, crates used for shelving and Tolix chairs. What a lovely relaxed home from home don't you think? If you could see the surrounding nature of Österlen you'd be even more in love. You can see more pics and read more info about this home here.

And tomorrow I'll also be announcing the winner of the Japanese Washi tape! So don't forget to stop by and see if you've won (if you haven't entered, hurry! click here).

  1. Such a cozy home, perfect fit for a beautiful summer day like today! Unfortunately the rule of bad weather holds true also here in Estonia. We are celebrating Midsummer's Eve on Saturday and of course the weather forecast says that it will start to rain on Saturday morning! :)

    Wish you a wonderful Midsummer's Eve!

  6. What a lovely home. I can't even make up my mind what I like best about it. The bookshelf in the loft space is great and so is the stove and the stone floor...

    Happy midsummer! :)
