Autumn touches in our Little Cottage Kitchen

Hello, happy Friday friends! Got any great plans for the weekend?

Last weekend we stole away to the cottage for a couple of days. An hour and a half north of here, the wind was howling and the rain lashed at the windows. Perfect weather for cosying up indoors beside the fire! In Sweden each season is so powerful and in contrast to the one before that I think it's important to embrace each and every one in all its glory! Is it the same where you are? 

Along with our fireside tea, we also made some small Autumn updates to the cottage kitchen - I hope you like them (my favourite was Per's apple pie!). 

Per is definitely the baker of the family. He whipped up this apple and cinnamon pie with apples from our neighbour's garden - it tasted divine! 

I picked up the ceramic bowl at Mölle Krukmakeri in nearby Kullaberg and the candle holder was made by a local ceramicist. 

We recently swapped out the faux brass handles from IKEA for these solid brass knobs (I was fortunate enough that it was part of an instagram collaboration last week). They've made a difference to the entire experience of the kitchen. 

I've noticed that one of the most important investments in the kitchen are the items you touch: handles, taps, utensils etc. Do you agree? 

I love bringing in Autumn foliage! At the back you can see The Little Swedish Kitchen cookbook, which was a present from my Mother. I dip into it all the time! 

Hooks are so useful in the kitchen (these wooden ones are from H&M Home) - the display here is forever changing too.

When we renovated the kitchen, the curtain was the last thing to be installed. My mother-in-law was a bit unsure to begin with but she's really grown to love the way it billows in the wind and creates a sense of drama and privacy even when the door is open. 

We're lucky enough to have a huge stack of firewood in the garage (last winter there was a shortage due to the rising price of electricity!), it's looking the same for this year. 

I hope you like these touches. 

Have you also updated your home for the season? If so, I'd love to hear how!

Feel inspired by other Autumnal homes here: 

What are you up to this weekend? We're heading to Västerås for Allie's gymnastics competition. I'm so excited as I love to watch her and her team do their gymnastics. I've never been to the Swedish city before either so I hope I'll have some time to explore! 

Trevlig helg! Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Do you find that the curtain in the kitchen needs to be washed often? I love this idea, but am worried it would hold the smell of anything that is cooked in the vicinity!

    1. Happy you asked. Since it's in our summer cottage we don't use this kitchen very often but it does indeed need washing quite often. Even so, I love it, it adds a softness to the space - and if you have people walking past it will also offer privacy without obscuring too much light. I hope this helps.

  2. wonderful kitchen!

  3. Lovely! Just the right amount of autumn beauty.

  4. Lovely autumn touches and your new brass knobs are beautiful. The wooden accents like the hook and cutting board along with candlelight and cut foliage, firewood all make an inviting statement. I bet the pie added some incredible aroma, too!

  5. So warm and inviting! We are currently visiting our son in college, about 5 hours north of our home. We may see snow tomorrow. I may be wishing for a cozy nest like yours!

    Best wishes for your daughter with her competition.

    1. Oh wow, snow already? That's so early! I hope you having a wonderful time with your son (and keeping warm!).

  6. Enjoying your blog and your beautiful, warm, kitchen
    from the southern hemisphere where we're heading into summer soon.
    With the warmth radiating from all the designs shown here in this blog it will be breeze to get through autumn and winter on the northern hemisphere.

    1. I'm envious that you have the entire summer stretching out before you - I LOVE summertime! :)
