A Swedish House Where the Town and Forest Meet

On Monday someone wrote requisition to see more urban apartments. I hear you, I have been featuring a lot of rural homes lately. I promise to keep shaking it up and try to share a little of every Scandinavian style - watch this space! Today's property offers the best of both worlds, which I'm hoping will also tick the box! Located on the outskirts of Kungsbacka, it has the benefit of having the town's facilities in walking distance, yet backs onto woodland (which looks especially pretty at this time of year). 

But it's not the location that caught my eye (although if you'd like to buy it, this could be good to know!), it's the decor. Built in 1906, the house has been completely renovated in keeping with the age and style of the property. I especially love the wood panelling (ever since building our little cabin, I'm even more of a fan!), and the way doors, ceilings, skirting boards and architraves have been painted in a darker tone. The upstairs bedrooms have also been painted in deeper soothing tones, adding a cosy touch. Oh, and the owners also have impeccable taste when it comes to furniture and lamps too! Ready to take a look? 

Notice how the kitchen is painted in two subtle tones, which immediately adds difference. Although rather spartan in this picture, you can imagine how lovely it would look when the whole family gathers round! 

What a wonderful house! I could definitely see myself living here, how about you?

Whoever snaps it up is extremely lucky. Hmmm, maybe I should speak to Per, although it is a little out of our budget! In case you're curious, there's more info about it here

Love to see some Scandinavian apartments today? Here some goodies: 

Live small? Get inspiration here!

I'm off to take some photos of a lamp now - it's such a gloomy day, I think it will need to be switched on. I'm looking forward to showing you the results on Friday! 

Vi ses!

  1. Love the look...pleasing ratio of painted surfaces to natural materials. Calm, satisfying and beautiful.

    1. I love the way you sum it up in three words - and they're spot on! :) / Niki

  2. So many interesting details with this space. Am I the only one who wants to peek into that little storage door? :) I'm also curious to know if it's a working fireplace .... and the purpose of the fabric holders across from the stairwell. I'm assuming they are for storing odds and ends for each family member before they walk out the door. Such an attractive solution.

    1. I'm guessing that it is a working fireplace. In Sweden they take excellent care of their fireplaces. For example by law a chimney sweep has to come and do maintenance and then there's an annual or bi-annual investigation to check everything is in order! I've just learn this since installing my own!

      The fabric storage is from a lovely shop called Norrgavel - they're great for things like hats, gloves and other small accessories you need to grab when you run out of the door.

      Now I wasn't too go through the storage door too!

      Thank you for pointing out all these details :) / Niki

  3. The posts about country homes are definitely still my favourite!
