my scandinavian home: A beautifully renovated Swedish farmhouse

A beautifully renovated Swedish farmhouse

Monday, 17 June 2013

This beautiful turn of the century Dalarna farmhouse was the childhood home of  Swedish photographer Helena Blom. Thirteen years ago Helena and her husband Göran returned with their children Elliot and Emma. Since then they have lovingly restored the home. It was important to Helena that the features which make an old house so charming such as the uneven hardwood floor, creaky staircase, beautiful fireplace and wood stove remained intact while the home is updated to reflect modern family life.

What a beautiful home! I think my favourite room has to be the sitting room with it's wonderful white floors, wood burning stove and wood beams (and saddle of course!).

What do you love about this home?

  6. I always figured I'd want a separate closet for clothing storage, but after seeing those curtains in the bedroom, I'm rethinking that! Clever and really pretty at the same time.
