Step inside the charming home of a Swede living in Italy

It's so much fun to see the home of a Scandinavian expat. Last week we took a tour of a Swede's colourful home in Brooklyn, New York. And today I thought we'd step inside the incredibly charming Italian home of Swede, Annemo. Based in a small village 30 minutes from Milan, Anemo works as an agent for Danish brand Tine K Home and shares her house with her Italian husband and three children. The family have decorated their home with beautiful, understated furniture and muted tones allowing the high ceilings, beautiful period features and huge windows to take centre-stage.  Subtle hints of bamboo, rattan and handwoven baskets add a hint of the med while linen gently floats in the afternoon breeze for a fresh, cool feel.

*Sigh*. Such a beautiful home! I love the muted tones and Scandinavian feel. I can really imagine how lovely and cool the space feels in the summer time - a perfect respite from the scorching sun. How about you?

Get the look: these Tine K Home bamboo furniture (I love the idyll home chair!) and round basket lamp (in kitchen).  This basket and bag are similar. Dining - Bistro dining chairs. Sitting room - Gervasoni ghost armchairs and sofa. Source made-to-measure light grey pure linen curtains / drapes here (Click here to see mine in white). Study - lamps by Tine K Home.

It'll come as no surpise that this lovely home has also featured in back issues of Elle Decoration country, Elle Decoration Sweden and Glorian koti in Finland. Great minds... :)

Thank you to Krista and Jonna for the kind permission to share these images. The Finnish duo are often capturing beautiful homes - previous tours I've shared include a lakeside cabin with a twist, a pared-back Finnish summer cottage and even Jonna's own summer cottage in the Inkoo archipelagos - Guh! Take me to the Finnish islands now!

Have a lovely day!


  1. I really like the large window in the last picture. Wish I had larger windows. In great need of light, it's been snowing again...❄

    1. Snowing at the end of March? So not what you need Poppy! No doubt it's coming this way next! Argghhh!

    2. Yep! Snow again :-!. Last Tuesday was warm enough for me to study outdoors, no coat, no scarf (±15°C). But that's Quebec! The saying goes: "En Avril ne te decouvres pas d'un fil" in short, don't undress until May.

    3. That's crazy! We should have that saying in Southern Sweden too. It reached a balmy 11 degrees here on Sunday and we were all super excited!

  2. Oh my their living room with the cosy white armchairs and the terrace look amazing. I wish I would live there .

    1. I know - just beautiful! I love how there are so many different places to sit depending on your mood (and the weather).

  3. OMG!!! Beautiful! Love it totally:-)

  4. This is like my *dream* home! 30 minutes outside of Milan? Um, sign me up, per favore! Italy is gorgeous and I can only imagine what it's like to live there. Plus, this home looks beautiful. I'm in awe of that fire place!

    xo, Sofia
