Relaxed, Colourful Boho Style in a Swedish Country Home

If you plan on visiting Sweden, think about coming between mid-May and beginning of June. It's a beautiful time: the world has sprung to life in an array of vibrant greens, the birds are back and singing their wonderful chorus and the sweet scent of lilac and wisteria fills the air. And everyone has a spring in their step! 

This charming former schoolhouse in the countryside near Uppsala, Sweden fits the mood perfectly! Think early 20th century architecture, playful patchwork, funky art, vibrant colours and warm pools of sunlight. Welcome to a relaxed, boho Swedish country home in springtime! 

Oh, so charming. You couldn't help feeling anything but relaxed here the moment you walk in the door - do you agree? 

Patchwork and embroidery are making a major comeback in the interior world - which is lovely to see, but you definitely get the impression that the owners of this house don't care for trends and simply decorate in a way that makes them happy. Just how a home should be!

I can see myself at that desk - potentially my favourite spot in the house other than sitting at the table in the warm sunshine! Can you imagine yourself kicking about here too? 

Take a peek inside a few other former schools today: 

Wishing you all a great start to the week!

  1. Beautiful home so vibrant and colourful

    1. I thought so too! It's a bit different from the homes I usually show, but I felt drawn to its warmth! / Niki

  2. Love this! My inner 10-year-old would have wanted that little bedroom. The whole house looks homey and comfortable, and I love that they don't worry about keeping up with trends--it's authentically their own. The colors are just enough to be cheery, and I'm crushing on the woven pendant light.

    1. I love everything you have picked out about this home - so true! / Niki

  3. Crafty people live here - I love the quilts and coverings on the furniture. A beautiful home, and again, in a beautiful location.

    1. Yes, I was thinking they must be creative in some way - perhaps artists? Or simply enjoy crafts such as knitting, sewing etc. / Niki

  4. Gorgeous! Lovely to see such a cosy home. Amanda

    1. Happy you enjoyed the tour too! / Niki
