A Charming Farmhouse in Piteå, Sweden

Thank you so much for all your comments yesterday, I read every single one of them and will carry them with me along with my personal reflections as I continue to provide this positive bubble of Scandi love each day. So friends, today, I'm whisking you away on a journey far, far North to Piteå, Sweden and the beautiful country home of Jessica Lindberg. Jessica lives in a farmhouse dating back to 1891 with her husband, two children and two cats. Originally from Piteå, Jessica and her husband lived in Malmö for 16 years and returned two years ago. Their traditional red and white farmhouse is full of interesting details - from the walls which feature everything from tiles, wallpaper, shades of blue and beige, exposed wood beams, marble and stone - to an array of lighting, art and fresh flowers at every turn! Enjoy the tour! 














How lovely! You can tell Jessica has carefully thought out every single element of the living space. I also love how she has combined vintage finds with some contemporary Scandinavian pieces. 

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

You can see more of Jessica's home on her instagram @rangas_etc.


Anyone else feeling tempted with rural life? All that space! 

Here at home, we're preparing for my stepson's graduation from school tomorrow. Taking your 'Studenten' is a really huge thing in Sweden (up there with other big life events such as births and weddings! - is it big in your country too?). It's a really joyous event. Teenagers run out from their schools - huge grins on their faces, throwing their graduation caps in the air before touring the town blowing whistles and waving flags. They then return home to celebrate with family and friends. Sadly, the celebration is marred with the Coronavirus social distancing rules this year, but we're doing our best to ensure he has a memorable day all the same (naturally, I put myself on decoration duties!).  Better get on! 

I'll be back tomorrow with more Scandi home love!

  1. Stunning home....I loved the wall paper in the hall near the kitchen, also loved the fact that there were lots of photos of all the rooms so that we could get a real sense of the house. Stay safe, Christine

  3. This feels really spacious and sprawling. Of note: the freestanding cupboards, those chunky stairs, the harp chairs, the exposed wood wall, the lighting, the sofas, the kitty, and the spectacular philodendron and monstera. Gorgeous home! Looks very polished. My only criticism is that the books look contrived - but maybe they're still all treasured reading!

    Graduations here are somewhat of a big deal, but I wish they sounded as overtly joyous as yours sound. There's usually a big procession followed by parties where friends, neighbors, and loved ones bring gifts for the graduate and enjoy a picnic. The kids often try to spend time together. This year felt very muted, but the kids still seemed to be in good spirits!

  4. Were these types of farmhouses owned by wealthier farmers at the time? It is certainly big and Jessica has made it very elegant and refined with some really nice choice of finishes (more sophisticated than I expected to see in the farmhouse or in traditional Swedish interiors). However it goes well with the house which made me wonder if this type of the farmhouse is meant to be more opulent. Really nice.

  5. This is, without question, one of the nicest house tours I have ever seen. I think it is the artful combination of the old with the modern that elevates this house to another level. So many things that stand out to me, one of them being the lovely black and white wallpaper, the natural wood cabinet under the dandelion print, as well as the little eating nook with the Thonet chairs and the paper star.
    Beautiful home!

  7. I loved the way you mixed old and new. I liked the clay pots, natural wood little side tables, natural shiplap and wood stove, and modern sofas. Put together very well.
