A beautiful country home in Värmland, Sweden

Well hello there! It's been a while? I hope you're great? I'm feeling all happy and relaxed after two weeks in the USA - which included a NYC and a wonderful tour of Long Island (two things:  If you go to NYC take some time out to visit Montauk (fellow fans of 'The Affair' - the Lobster Roll exists!) - but above all else, visit the North Fork for farm shops, antiques, rosé tasting at Croteaux Vineyards and the best slow coffee ever at North Fork Roasting Co). As the Swedish proverb goes 'borta bra, men hemma bäst' (away is good, but home is best!) and it's great to be back in South Sweden too.  I was especially excited to stumble across the wonderful instagram feed of Therese Johansen via Trendenser blog this morning (thank you for the tip Frida!) and couldn't resist sharing a few of the lovely pictures of her home in Värmland, Sweden. Think modern-country style with a muted colour palette and lots of interesting details (how fab are the old windows?). Enjoy....

Oj oj oj - what a beautiful home?!

I particularly love all the displays, plants, and linens. Is there anything that stands out to you?

A few items I know and love from Therese's home: sitting room - the sofa looks like it's been draped with white linen  - or try Bemz for linen covers designed to fit IKEA sofas. Source a black and white Moroccan blanket with pom poms here. The Z1 lamp by Ay Illuminate is similar. Vases by Ernst. The Poster Club sells many of the prints seen on the gallery wall. Second living area - this round mirror is similar, Octopus candleholder, The Kinfolk Home and The Kinfolk Table books. Kitchen - Menu chairs. Bedroom - dark grey linen duvet colour and pillow case.

You can see more of Therese's home and follow her latest projects over on Instagram here

Have a great start to the week!

PS the down side of going to far away places? Waking up at 2am and not being able to get back to sleep. Siesta time!!


  1. What stands out to me, besides the monochrome set pieces in these images - stunning as they are - is the lack of colour in the life of this home. With respect, I am guessing that the colours of food, clothing, even books, might enhance a living ambience in this fastidiously, and beautifully, dressed home.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment, always wonderful to hear everyone's thoughts. I agree the monochrome set pieces are stunning. The colour has been added in the vibrant greens of the plants - and subtle colours in the flowers etc (other tones are evident but have been dulled down thanks to the desaturated effect of the images). This subtle use of colouring is not to everyone's taste - particularly if you like bold brights etc in which case, I entirely agree that they could add to the living ambience. To my eyes it's incredibly beautiful and also achieves a very lived in feel just the way it is.

  2. WELCOME BACK! Missed my daily dose of MSH❤️ Love the black and white with pops of plants + wood accents in this space. Seems so modern yet so approachable - like you could just walk in and feel like home!

    1. Awwww thank you, it's good to be back! I totally agree, it's very relaxed and homely, I love that!

  3. Welcome back :) I/we missed your daily inspiration. Wish you a slow and soft landing.

  4. What stands out to me. I love it and it's pared back colour palette. Too many colours distract me so I really enjoyed this. Welcome back too!

    1. I'm with you Naomi. While I appreciate colour, I do love a pared back scheme, it's so calming!
