my scandinavian home: A former lighthouse keeper's cottage on Gotland

A former lighthouse keeper's cottage on Gotland

Tuesday, 6 May 2014

One of the things I love about writing My Scandinavian Home is I come across homes such as this one, which engulf me with inspiration and I know they will you too. This former lighthouse keeper's cottage is one of them. Located in Visby on the island of Gotland off Sweden's east coast, this family summer cottage has been beautifully renovated using white, greys and dusty pink and breathtaking views out to see. Safe to say, I could spend my summer here, how about you?

What do you love most about this home?

Each year my parents visit us from London and take my little girls away somewhere for a treat. Last year they had a fantastic time on the Danish island of Bornholm and this year they plan to go to Gotland. I think I'm going to have to pack myself in their trunki, I've been waiting to visit Gotland for years!

If you're not convinced, this post by Little Scandivian will have you sold. It's such a breathtaking island with so much to see and do, plus you get to rent holiday homes like this one

I've shown so many beautiful homes on Gotland before including this stunning summer cottage, a Gotland retreat, and a converted brewery.  Could you imagine restoring your own home here?

Have a lovely day!


  1. My favourite thing is the view! But in the house, I love the kitchen table and chairs, and the floor in the bedroom.

  2. Gotland in the summer is so perfect, you should absolutely go. Or, if you're into that, watch some of Ingmar Bergman's movies that are set in Fårö ;)

  3. Beautiful surroundings - I am delighted. When it comes to the interior is the most I like boards - their different colors and their use.

  4. I love the view and the pink accents. It all looks very calming. I want to go there now.

  5. There is not one single thing I don't love about this one. Beautiful home. *happy sigh*

  6. The black floor and white walls, that's what I love most about this home.

  7. This is wonderful! Gotland looks amazing, love the coastline and this cottage is perfect!
