my scandinavian home: A Gotland retreat

A Gotland retreat

Wednesday, 23 October 2013

If there's one place on my wish list it's the island of Gotland on the East coast of Sweden, it's supposed to be stunning. This summer cottage is situated on a little island called Furillen just off Gotland (even better!). According to Anna of blog La Maison D'Anna G, the space was formerly used as army storage and has been carefully renovated using raw materials as well relics from the original building. The blue accent and sheepskin rugs add a warm element to the cold industrial feel of the concrete and pared-back space. Very original and beautiful.

I like the way they have 'opened up' the Hay industrial light - it adds a cool twist, perhaps I should do the same with mine in my bedroom....I see they have the Muuto Wood Table Lamp, one of my favourites! I am also a big fan of sheepskin rugs over chairs - as you can see from my dining room (it actually makes them so comfy too!).

Anything about this home you love?

PS Don't miss my very exciting give-away this Friday just in time for the clocks to go forward  (open worldwide).......Ooooo what could it be?!


  1. I love the blue and the rugs - very unique space!! ;-)

  2. I love that blue wall and ply wood combination!

  3. I don't know if it's the Autumn season but I do like the deeper light and darker colors instead of the immaculate interiors we've been loving these last few months. Very nice space and that blue is stunning ... xx
