my scandinavian home: A lovely pared-back Skåne farmhouse

A lovely pared-back Skåne farmhouse

Thursday, 24 March 2016

I can't believe it's Easter already (I hope you enjoyed my Easter DIY edit!). As promised, I'm back with a home tour before I take a few days off over the holidays (I hope you're planning a nice, relaxing few days too?). This 19th century farmhouse is located in the small village of Förslöv (which I had the pleasure of visiting to shoot a home for my book last spring) here in Sweden's southernmost county of Skåne. The home has been beautifully renovated by architect Lisette Bramsell Ohlsson and her husband Mats Ohlsson - basically 'building a new one within the old one'. Rustic wood beams give warmth to the space which has been decorated using neutral tones and pared-back furnishings throughout. Let's take a peek...

Lovely! That exterior?!

Get the look: Nemo sofa, wood flooring by Dinesen, Kvist light, Thonet chair, white pom poms (seen in Ella's bedroom), the bath was a flea market find and painted.

Other truly lovely Scandinavian farmhouses (in case you missed them previously) include the monochrome home of a Swedish photographer, a pretty västergötland farmhouse and a boho home,

Before I shoot off, here are a few other links from around the web I love:

Count me in: Elderberry-pear hazlenut cake in that location! Honestly?

And comfort food.

The cutest children's bedding. And the perfect Scandinavian kid's bedroom inspiration.

Oh and make sure you enter my big easter give-away this weekend - for your chance to win one of my favourite prizes ever... oh the suspense! Back with more info shortly. 

Until then, have a lovely day!


  1. So viel Stil, so viel Feingefüh.
    Tolle Bilder und Inspirationen.

    1. It is lovely isn't it? I see you're from Berlin - one of my favorite cities in the world! Happy Easter! / Niki

  2. So cozy...Happy Good Friday

  3. Are Sweden and England so totally secular that you forgot about Good Friday? And in no way is it a "Happy" day. It is not Easter yet. Good Friday gives its meaning to all that follows, otherwise call Easter Big Fat Bunny Bearing Chocolates Day.

  4. Beautiful home.....specially the interiors ...just loved it!

  6. One thing that I miss most (from Europe) are the wide window sills.
    I love the white dinging chairs - so simple but so elegant!
    Nikki, do you know what is the plant in the beige ceramic pot? (4th image down). Such a beautiful shape even without leaves.

  7. I love the linen towel in grey because if one has to wash dishes, it may as well be done in style...!
