A beautifully renovated parsonage in the Swedish countryside

This parsonage from the 1700's and featured in Lantliv had been uninhabited for fifty years. And then Gustaf Willers took it over and gave it a whole new lease of life. I absolutely love that he has stayed faithful to the style and the location but added a modern touch. I dream daily about buying a beautiful old Swedish house and renovating it. Perhaps one day i'll be posting about that? but for now, here's someone else's beauty!

If you understand Swedish it's worth taking a read of the article. There are so many lovely touches to the renovation, such as Gustaf's mother colouring in the 800 hand-printed flower baskets on the bedroom wallpaper by hand. Now that's dedication!  Makes me think. What can changes can I make in my home just by taking the time to use good old fashioned handiwork?


  1. This home has so much character. I really like the mix of styles in the furnishings.

  2. I LOVE TO SEE, that scandinavian homes become more colourful, with a modern touch, than those, which have everything in white. A mixture with old furniture and modern, colourful accessories and things, coming from all over the world, that is what I love! I prefer this new style instead of the shabby style. I think, even in WINTER, we need some more colours, to colour our life, when outside it is cold, grey, frozen!
    I think, you are completley right: so colour your life! Hugs, Barbara

  3. What a lovely home! It's cozy, charming and beautifully decorated. I like especially the female painting on the wall of the living room. Definitely we don't need to much for to be happy!

    Have a wonderful week Niki!
