my scandinavian home: A rustic retreat on Sweden's west coast

A rustic retreat on Sweden's west coast

Tuesday, 27 August 2013

This converted barn and tower in Korslid, near Bottna, on Sweden's west coast is the country home of writer and journalist Kenneth Kauppi, gardener Catherine Thelander and their family. Recently featured in Lantliv, the family have lovingly renovated the farm buildings over 25 years to create a beautiful rustic open living space and studio. The family love to stay in the summer to relax, swim and kayak in the archipelago, explore the great open spaces that surround the house and generally take some downtime. I can certainly see why!

  7. I love how they added the accents of red and blue, not too much but enough to break up the softer colors.
