Step Inside An Idyllic Swedish Country Home on A Hill

How was your weekend? We packed up and headed straight out to the Swedish countryside on Friday. I'd love to say it was relaxing, but the entire weekend was spent grafting on the kitchen renovation - I never knew such a small space could create so much work! I can barely keep my eyes open today! Has Monday come around a little too quickly for you too? If so, you might like to dream away with me about returning to the Swedish countryside by taking a peek inside this lovely torp (a small rural dwelling and agricultural unit in Scandinavia, similar to a croft). Martina Söderhielm lives with her husband Jacob and their three children high up on Billingen - the largest of thirteen mesas in Västra Götaland. Their home is made up of a pretty cluster of buildings dating back to the 1700s and surrounded by acres of rich pastures and a plucky brood of chickens. Välkommen in

My daughter has the same Apple Papple poster in her room (she tells him all her secrets). I love the plum and dark blue combination in this lovely children's room! 


Oh, so lovely, don't you think?

It honestly makes me wonder if my family and I should move out to the Swedish countryside for good (how many times have I spoken about that over the years?!). When you look at these lovely pictures, do you feel the same?

Here's to a wonderfully slow start to the week!

  1. Oh what a gorgeous space! I especially love the dining area. So pretty!


    1. The dining room is so lovely! I've always wanted to live in a quintessentially Swedish red and white cottage like this!

  2. Beautiful, it has the same vibe like Marie Fredriksson's house in the Roxette music video for the song "Milk and toast and honey".

    1. Oh yes!! I'd forgotten all about that song and now I need to dig out the music video! Great name for a song.

  3. Excellent inside design, Looking so good,I really like it, Thanks
