Snapshots From a Cosy Home in Smögen, Sweden

Tjena! I hope you had a fabulous weekend?! I don't know about you, but what I really fancy doing this morning is chilling in this cosy space in one of my favourite parts of Sweden - the West coast! Almost every summer without fail we pay a visit to the Gothenburg archipelagos. Some of the islands are completely uninhabited, others have a sprinkling of pretty white wood board cottages and colourful waterfront fishing huts, and others are more lively affairs. Smögen spans several islands and is known for its long boardwalk lined with shops, seafood restaurants and bars - many of which play live music until the early hours (it's a great place!). The winter is a quieter affair, harsh winds buffet the coast and the scenery emits a raw beauty. Originally from Gothenburg, Interior stylist Sara Kjellemo has taken up year round residency in Smögen. As the summer sun starts to fade, her home becomes a cosy oasis, layered with fluffy rugs, cushions, candles and linen curtains all in subtle Autumnal tones. 

Sara is a talented artist too - her work includes this portrait in the kitchen and a white clay vase with black splashes  (seen on the coffee table).

Sara bought the art photography at Dear Sam.

So lovely, don't you think? The epitome of calm!

Is there anything that stands out to you about Sara's home?

See more pics here and for a little Monday escapism you might also like to take a peek at these Swedish island hide-aways.

The West coast islands are so beautiful at this time of the year, maybe I should start an annual winter trip? I'm curious: have you ever been to this part of the world? If so, I'd love to hear about your favourite places.

Have a wonderful start to the week - stay cosy!

  1. Beautiful apartment :) As usual, on your blog, I would like to have such an instrument at home, it fits nicely into the cavity, and maybe I would learn to play, I am waiting for more inspiration, greetings.

    1. Totally with you Ana! I'm trying to persuade my daughters to start learning how to play the piano just so I can have one in my home (and perhaps take up lessons myself!) - no luck yet but I'm working on it!
