A rustic retreat on Sweden's west coast

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!

What a gorgeous place to be able to go and relax - I love the double height ceilings, exposed beams and wooden textures. Lovely!

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

Wow. Those red chairs just pop so nicely and all that beautiful texture though out the place. I mostly like the floor runner in the kitchen and the antlers on the shelf.
