The Swedish island home of a fashion designer

I stumbled across the Swedish cottage of Carin Rodebjer, fashion designer and creative director / founder of Rodebjer earlier today and had to share it with you! I wonder, if like me, it will set of a sequence of daydreams - starting with beautiful summers, ending up in 'my year on an idyllic Swedish island' (seriously, I got that carried away!)?  Whichever it is, the cottage and barn on the Swedish East coast island of Gotland are undeniably charming, and surrounded by the most beautiful wilderness. What's even more unbelievable is that Carin (who originally hales from Gotland) has put the property on the perhaps our dreams can come true after all?!

We can't all live in a 19th century Swedish cottage (unless of course you snap this one up!) but we can at least get the look. Here are a few items I love:  for vintage wallpaper this shop is great. I like this and this vintage school / classroom 'plant' sketches.  This is one of my favourite places to source Gotland sheepskin throws. Buy a traditional swedish rag rug here. The little chair and table are from IKEA.

If you're as fascinated by this little island as I am, you might want to check out these other cottages and homes which are equally pared-back and relaxed, and all unique. I once contacted the owner of this one for my book, but sadly it'd been sold. One of these days I'll make it there, I'm sure of it! Have you been?

Are you ready to up sticks and move to a lovely home like this one? Or perhaps you already have your own island cottage - if you do, pleeeease share!

Have a lovely day!


  1. I love those traditional Swedish artworks in the dining room. Wonder if they are original or prints?

  2. it's perfection - and all I can think of is Noisy Village, one of my all time favorite books.

    1. Yes, it's exactly like that! My girls love Noisy Village. :)
