A Perfect Swedish Summer Cottage For Midsummer's Eve!

It's the start of a new week - but not just any week. Here in Sweden, we're gearing up for arguably the biggest event of the year - Midsummer! On Thursday evening the city streets will slowly become deserted as folk flock to the countryside to spend 'midsommarsafton' (midsummer's eve) with family and friends on Friday. 

It felt apt to share this quintessential Swedish cottage on the island of Gotland to mark the occasion. You might just recognise it, it used to belong to Emma Sundh (previously featured here with a different layout and furnishings!). The pretty red and white cottage is every inch the archetypal Swedish summer cottage - and it has a large garden that's perfect for dancing around a maypole with flowers in your hair! 

Step inside to discover rooms painted in earthy tones to mirror the surrounding nature, simple decor, touches of floral wallpaper and the most beautiful masonry oven! 

So idyllic! And such a pretty cottage, don't you think? I'd be perfectly happy to spend my summer months here. It helps that Gotland is the most amazing island. Located in the Baltic Sea, the nature is verdant and wild, with rugged shores and sandy beaches, as well as wildflowers growing in the hedgerows. Small ateliers and farm shops are dotted along the roadside, and a cool eatery is never far away. If you'd like to visit, you can read more about the island in this travel guide I wrote a while back. 

Most importantly, it has so much space to dance around like a frog on midsummer (read more about hosting a Swedish midsummer celebration here).

  2. "I love what they've done to the place!" Changes to bedroom wallpaper, serene colors - most notably the kitchen with sunny, mellow walls and cabinets. And that pendant light in the family room, wow! I'd love to know how it was made. Adorable and comfy; all the natural and activity features surrounding the cottage. Perfection.

  3. Sad this beautiful cottage is going on sale. Loved it (vintage lamp, suitcases)as featured here before. (https://www.myscandinavianhome.com/2018/08/an-idyllic-swedish-summer-cottage-and.html) Wonder if the caravan goes on sale too. Hope it finds as beautiful hands as once shaped it before.

    1. Yes, it still bears some of the resemblances from when Emma owned it. I believe she sold it a couple of years back. It's strange that it has gone on the market again so soon but I hope it falls into the best care possible and is loved for years!
