A Charming Swedish Family Home in the South of France

Tjena! It's long been known that Swedes love their summer cottages - usually somewhere rural and near water for morning dips. But when you can enjoy a summer cottage lifestyle year-round like Kristin Lagerqvist does at her home in Varberg, West Sweden - a holiday home needs to offer something different. And Kristin and her family, found their paradise in Languedoc-Roussillon, Southeast France. True to Kristin's signature style, the home is decorated with local vintage and flea market finds and earthy tones which look beautiful beside the original French floor tiles and architecture of the old town house. On warmer days, life moves up to a rooftop terrace with a dining area and daybed. Bienvenue!

How lovely!! 

And what a wonderful change of scene! They must feel like they've really landed when they arrive. And I bet there's no end to the enjoyment Kristin gets from those French antique markets and curiosity stores. magnifique! 

Her house is charming too, pared back, relaxed, full of charm!

Is there anything that stands out to you? 

See more pictures of Kristin's home in Varberg and house in France here. She also has a wonderful boutique and offers inspiring workshops here

Would you like to take a peek inside a few other homes in France belonging to Swedes? 

Have a great start to the week!

    1. Happy you enjoyed this one! I could imagine myself being completely at home here too! / Niki

  2. from the french woman : the picture (antique shop) is at Pézénas ( hérault, south of france). This town apart from its antique shops, is known for a culinary speciality imported by an english lord in 1768 ! A small cake, called : "petit pàté de Pézénas", that my paternal family tasted every sunday ... One of my best childhood memory !

    1. Oh wow, you know this place! Thank you for sharing your local knowledge and childhood experiences. I'd love to visit and try a slice of that small cake one day. /Niki

  3. Fantastic. And that window and view? Insert all the love eyes.

    1. Yes, so wonderful! I bet there's a lovely breeze up there on a warm day too. /Niki
