A Romantic Swedish Country Home in Summertime

There's something very special about July in Sweden. The lush green of the countryside. The flowers in full bloom. The chorus of the birds and insects going about their work. Little wonder Swedes press the pause button for a few weeks to take it all in. 

I felt this country house perfectly captured the essence of the Swedish summer cottage. It's about leading a back-to-basics lifestyle where the days are shaped around a dip in the sea or lake, slow coffee, long lunches and reading a book under a tree. The beauty of the summer cottage interior lies in the imperfection and simplicity, allowing the vibrancy of the surroundings to take centre stage. 

I'd be perfectly happy to sit at any one of the desks in this house in the name of work but more likely simply gaze out of the moth blown windows. Oh, and if you love wallpaper, you're in for a treat too!  Welcome to a lovely country house northeast of Stockholm. 

There's something poetic about this house, don't you think? 

Are there any details that caught your eye? 

There are so many great Swedish wallpaper brands. Two that are worth checking out are BorÃ¥stapeter and Sandberg. William Morris is also popular, although not Swedish of course! 

Here are a few more country homes to tour today (just in case I've got you in the mood): 

Do you have a similar style of celebrating summer in the country where you live? 

Have a great start to the week.

  1. Lovely, calm and relaxing. Love the knickers hanging in the bathroom.🙂

  2. from the french woman : what a wink for pantries drying, proof of real life in a house ! it looks like a bird's nest in which the soap rests on the sink ? the atmosphere and the wallpapers evokes childhood memories in the country house in Sologne (central region of france with forests and ponds) of my grandparents parisians. delicious and carefree era !

  3. Such beautiful light. So much like Car Larsson’s interiors.

  4. from the french woman : you have to read panties and not pantRies, my finger slipped on the keyboard !!!

  5. I love the relaxed, old-fashioned vibe. Just looking at the pictures makes me feel calm and happy. I don't think I'd get any work done at all while sitting at the desk--I'd be too busy staring at the pretty indoor and outdoor surroundings.

  6. Is this available to rent?

  7. Your post is giving country side home vibes, I cant wait to be back home !

  8. It's amazing how a few pieces of hanging laundry immediately give the place a cozy and a lived-in feel. I love the shape of the toilet - very sleek and modern, haven't seen anything like in Canada.
