A Warm and inviting Swedish Home with Low Angled Ceilings

This week, I'm taking you on a journey around Scandinavia. On Monday we were at a Danish cabin beside the Kattagatt Sea - and today we're peeking inside a house near the shore of Lake Mälaren, Sweden. Dating back to the 1700s and measuring 70 m2, the house is an upside down one, with a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and the sitting room and home office at the top off the house. 

Bathed in warm golden sunlight (I love the way the light has been captured), the style is clean and simple, yet inviting thanks to relaxed open shelving, a blend of furniture and a big, plump sofa (I'd be perfectly happy to sink into that today and hang out in it for the rest of the week!). Perfect inspiration for anyone dealing with low angled ceilings! Enjoy the tour! 

A perfect spot to hang out after a day on lake Mälaren! 

FYI it looks like that pot on the stairs has been placed there for the styling (it would be tricky to get around it otherwise! To be fair, the Mimosa does look beautiful even if it's not so practically positioned!

I love the red chair in the kitchen - there's something about throwing something completely different into the mix, it adds an element of surprise which is always good in an interior. 

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Incidentally, I have never been to Mariefred, but it looks lovely from the pictures - see what I mean here! I'll be adding that destination to my travel list for a holiday on lake Mälaren! Maybe see you there? 

Feel inspired by other apartments with angled ceilings today:  

You can also see how I created storage under an angled ceiling in my bedroom and attic - still thrilled with it today! 

Kram! See you Friday!
