A Swedish Photographer and French Hat-Maker's Home in the South of France

Do you ever dream of moving abroad? If so, perhaps this story might inspire you! This beautiful old house in a small village between Nimes and Montpellier in Gard in the South of France belongs to Swedish photographer Anna Malmberg, French hat-maker Joncha and their son. Anna had dreamt of living here ever since she saw 'Le Glorie de Mon Père' as a young girl and Joncha grew up in Valence. In the summer of 2020, the family packed up their Stockholm apartment and followed their dream to live in a warm climate, closer to nature and the mediterranean sea. This is their home. 

The living space is a sea of earthy tones, layers of texture and lovely vintage and antique pieces. You might recognise the rug in this picture. It's from Cappelen Dimyr - a Swedish rug company founded by Ellen Dixdotter, who's Copenhagen home and Swedish country kitchen I featured a few weeks back. Anna recently did a photoshoot for the company in an incredible chateau! 

Yes, Sweden is a small world!

The brown chair was a recent flea market find. And what a find it was - these curved pieces are really hot in the world of interiors right now, and I like how usual this piece is. 

The walls have been painted with natural limewash from Bauwerk Colour, which adds lots of lush texture. 

Anna's home office space is bathed in a beautiful morning night and a fab Carl-Johan lamp* by Olssen & Jensen can be seen on the far side of the desk. 

Sign me up for an evening in this spot under the stars - I'm sure Anna and Joncha have so many stories to tell from their travels! 

What a beautiful home. While the rain comes down for the fourth day in a row here in Malmö, I completely understand why the family might go in search of sun! Sign me up!

You can follow Anna's latest projects over on her website and instagram.  I've got my eye on one of Joncha's incredible hats! See them in action here

Fancy seeing a few more homes from Scandinavians living abroad? 

Do you ever dream of loving abroad? Perhaps this post might inspire you! 

I'm afraid this will be my last post of the week since I've got a huge photoshoot tomorrow. I'm so looking forward to sharing the results with you soon. In the meantime, I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend and the sun shines for you!
