my scandinavian home: A Swedish cottage with a beautiful mix

A Swedish cottage with a beautiful mix

Friday, 26 July 2013

It's Friday! Woohoo! To celebrate here's a truly inspiring cottage in Höganäs here in Skåne. I would love a home like this - it's got the perfect mix of orginal wood beams, whitewashed brick walls, industrial style lamps and furniture and a touch of shabby chic. The white floors on the upper level are the icing on the cake for me!

If you're ever in Southern Sweden, Höganäs in well worth a stop thanks to it's fantastic design shops - Lily & Oscar and Magasin 36 (which also does the best brunch ever!).

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Talk about jaw-dropping! Beams and Tolix chairs are my weakness and here they are all under one roof! Have a lovely weekend!

  2. I love the contrast and harmony between the old-fashioned and modern elements there. Absolutely stunning. Before I read your text I just saw the timber framing and knew immediately it must be Skåne! :)

  4. Those rustic beams are wonderful. Also love that little hint of magnolias on the wall paper...which surprises me as I don't generally go for wallpaper! Perhaps it is the contrast of the feminine wallpaper and the sort of industrial masculine light fittings of the dining room.

  5. Despite the distressed textures of the walls and wood, the white remains a beautiful backdrop to the carefully selected furniture pieces. That brown velvet sofa offers just the right contrast in the space. And that mirror on the first floor with the peeling white paint left us swooning.

  6. Amazing cottage. I really like photos 3 and 4 with the wood beams and floors against the white walls and ceiling. The industrial looking lights and chairs in the kitchen are pretty cool too.
