my scandinavian home: A Swedish home in the archipelagos

A Swedish home in the archipelagos

Tuesday, 10 February 2015

I'm a big fan of interiors which reflect the surrounding nature. And this one in Tyresö Skogsstad near Tyresö, Sweden is a fine example. The show apartment has been designed to reflect the beautiful Tyresta National Park and archipelago (think boating, cool dips and lazy days on the beach) on it's doorstep.  Line Sandberg has used natural materials such as wood, leather, linen and sheepskins and a warm palette of greens, browns and greys to bring the nature indoors. The mix of old and new furniture also helps to create a cosy, warm feel. It's hard to believe no one lives there, don't you think?

Imagine living in the archipelagos?!

I spy: Normann Bell pendant lamp in sand, Thonet 214 and 209 chairs and soft Linen bedding

Other homes which bring the outside in include this cosy weatherboard cottage, a rustic chalet in the Swiss alps and an idyllic Finnish cottage.

Have you brought the surrounding nature indoors into your home?

Next month I'm starting a new column where we'll take a peek into homes across Scandinavia and hear more about the home-owners daily lives. If you live in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland and you'd like to be a part of this column please send me a mail with some snapshots of your home and examples of activities you enjoy, I'd love to hear from you.

Have a lovely day!
