Gen's Playful Swedish Summer Cottage

Only three weeks to go until midsummer and Swedes are counting down the days until they lock up their city homes and head out to the country to relax! My dear friend Genevieve Jorn will be spending her last summer with her family at her summer cottage in Almåsa, just outside Malmö - as they have decided to put it on the market

An interior designer and creative director at Farniente Beach Club, Gen has added her signature style with pops of colour and pattern throughout the little 40 metres square (430 foot square) cottage - giving the space a fun and playful touch, while the predominance of white, natural materials and wood panelling ensures it remains somewhere you can come to relax and kick back for the weekend or entire summer.

Let's take a little look around! 

What a lovely getaway! And so near Malmö too. 

It must be with a very heavy heart that Gen has decided to sell up - but I am looking forward to seeing what she does next.

Did the playful touches and use of colour resonate with you? 

Up for more inspiration today check out the entire summer cottage archive, other popular archives include before and after renovations, vintage inspired homes and small spaces

Happy Lillördag (little saturday)! 


PS (AD) I am so happy to see so many of you have made the most of the 20% off voucher in yesterday's post, I hope you enjoy the Skandinavisk fragrances as much as I do!
