A pretty Västergötland farmhouse

This is the home of stylist and writer Anna Truelsen, husband Michael and children Johanna, Joel, Jonatan and Joshua in Västergötland, Sweden. They had to wait ten years to buy the farmhouse, but it seems good things come to those who wait! The family spent five years renovating the home and Anna is now converting the barn to create a home office from where she'll write her blog My Lovely Things.

Stylist: Anne Ralf Hållbus Photographer Jonas Lundberg, Lantliv
Such a lovely home, very relaxed with a lovely mix of old and new (I see an injection of modern with Eames chairs throughout - for 15% discount (code MYSCAN) on Eames chairs click here. Yay!)  The key idea I'm going to steal from Anna's home is using a demi john as a vase and simple jam jars on the dining table with wild flowers, so simple yet so pretty!

One of my dreams is to have a lovely gazebo, converted barn or shed in my garden from which to write just like Anna. I'll have to keep an eye on her blog to see the end result, exciting!

That's it for me for the week. It's surprising how great the internet has been here in the (very beautiful) Gothenburg archepelagos. Have you been here? It's one of my favourite places in the world and where I met my husband 9 years ago. If you ever come let me know and I'll send you some tips, I've got so many favourite islands!

Have a lovely weekend and see you Monday!


  1. how a lovely home!! I follow your blog and everyday I love watching it!
    it's so "fresh" :D

  2. Such a beautiful home, it looks so peaceful and relaxing and comfy!

  3. This home is beautiful!

  4. I love, love, love this house! But I do wonder what it is like in the winter? probably just as lovely, but how do they make it feel cozy and warm in the winter?

    I wish I could do something similar in my house, but a 1960s square house just doesn't really lend itself to this kind of decor. I wish it did!

  5. I want to take my knitting basket & vacation in that house, it just looks so refreshing!

  6. What a really wonderful home-I love it! Would love to visit the islands one day-will be in touch when we do! :-)

  7. Gorgeous - the Eames chair discount code doesn't work though!

    1. Hi Lou, thank you for letting me know and sorry about that, problem solved so it should be working now if you'd like to try again. Have a lovely weekend and happy eames shopping!

  8. That dining room is my kind of style (I'll pack my bags!). Enjoy Gothenburg archepelagos, and it's beautiful fond memories!

  9. Her hard work has paid off. That place looks fantastic.

  10. Gorgeous! And I'm going to steal that idea for centerpieces on my dining room table.

  11. Thank this blog post is very informative for sharing it. Dining room is a very famous in all world wide.
