A Beautiful Swedish Country Home with Layers of Cosy Textures

Hej vänner! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I have to confess, I'm feeling slightly worse for wear today after a conference in Ischgl, Austria! What a crazy place! So much fun. It was a lot of work, but it was great to get a little skiing in and enjoy the mountains too. 

We landed back in Sweden late last night, and today I'm thinking I'd much rather be in the beautiful, serene home of Emily Slotte than at my desk!

If you don't already follow Emily on instagram, it's a must! The Swede shares daily snapshots from her beautiful home in the countryside near Norrtälje, Northeast of Stockholm. Think warm, off-white shades, a blend of texture including stone, wood and rattan and layers of textiles - from shag-pile rugs to sheer curtains for a cosy, soft touch. In the winter, the family gathers around a roaring fire in an upstairs living room, in summer, life moves outdoors! 

Welcome to Emily's world!  

Can you see why I'd rather be rocking about here this Monday morning? So lovely!  

I particularly love the upstairs sitting room with its towering ceiling, cosy fire and TMBO lounge chair - but there are lots of other lovely, simple details too. 

Is there anything that caught your eye? 

See more of Emily's home here. 

And for more Scandinavian country homes today have a delve in this archive - it's full of inspiring spaces including Magda's beautiful home which I shared on Friday! 

I'm still really enjoying reading your comments about my attic make-over too - thank you for sharing your thoughts! 

Have a great start to the week!

  1. I am loving (among other things) the bouclé curtains. Also, the fireplace has a bit unusual apperance (for a Swedish home) but it makes it even more interesting.
    And the blanket with the indented (for lack of a better word) edges - have not seen a similar one anywhere.
    The folded blankets on the chair (by the window with the bouclé curtain) remind me of a mohair/angora blanket I got at an antique show (although it was a brand new item) - it is so lightweight and yet incredibly warm - it is the only item in my house the dog is not allowed on because she would lick it obsessively.

  2. So much caught my eye. There is peace and energy and warmth and coolness, welcoming to dog and humans, nature and an eclectic beautiful, functional collection. Some pieces seem to be passed through generations, and some pieces seem freshly added. I agree, I would rather be in here home than at my desk too! Love the natural color sofa covers. Love the round light in pale natural with nature illustrations. So much I like.

  3. As soon as I saw the first photo, I knew there’d be a dog! Such a lovely, relaxed home.

  4. These are two houses, one is Emily's, but the kitchen is her friend's :-)

    1. Aj aj aj!!! You're right! That teaches me for rushing. I've now corrected the post. Thank you so much for pointing this out!

  5. Right now, I'm jealous of all the beautiful sunlight streaming through the home. We are having a winter filled with dark skies, but haven't had snow since Christmas. It looks like the locale is as pretty as the house.

  6. Stunning Outdoor Umbrella ? where can i find ? kindest M
