This Magazine-Ready Cabin on a Swedish Island is on Airbnb!

Can you work from home? Or more importantly, need a holiday? If so, this lovely Swedish cottage on the island of Dalarö in the Stockholm archipelagos for you.  At the top of the Airbnb checklist is 'dedicated workspace - a room with wifi that's well suited for working'. But when you read the full description, it's enough to make you want to switch off your laptop and soak up the tranquility of the surroundings instead! 

Built in 1968, the cabin is surrounded by the ocean, forest and nature, and the grey and wood interior has been designed to mirror the beautiful rocky cliffs and woodland, giving it a subtle raw, masculine touch. 

On sunny days, life moves out onto the terrace where a bed swing (such a great idea!), hammock and barbecue awaits. On colder days, a wood-burning sauna offers a respite from the chill. Oh, and dogs are welcome too! 

Feeling tempted? Wait till you see the pictures!

Could you imagine swapping your desk for the one in this cabin? Or simply booking this stay for a relaxing holiday? If so, you can find more details here

I was in the Stockholm archipelagos recently and I can't tell you how tranquil it was - rain or shine! it's a great place to hike (there are trails everywhere) or sunbathe on the warm rocks. If you're visiting the Swedish capital, make sure you stay a few more days to explore the islands! 

Looking for more wonderful 'stays' in Sweden this summer? I love these lets: 

Just a word of warning - always check with a Swedish airbnb if they provide bedding. In Sweden, you are often expected to bring your own sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases so it's good to ask the hosts to make sure you don't get caught out! 

Happy Wednesday friends!


PS I am exciting to be heading to 3 days of design in Copenhagen, Denmark tomorrow, let me know if you're in town too! 


  1. from the french woman : i would be able to sell my soul to the devil for the day bed, te office chair and the bench at the foot of the bed ! absolutely beautiful furniture !

    1. Thank you for pointing these out, they are indeed fabulous designs! My only concern about having a daybed like this would be that I'd never get out of it!

  2. Paradise! Looks lovely at night and in the winter. Love the outdoor spaces...hammock area, the bed. Camp bed/day bed in the living area is a favorite of mine. The kitchen, furniture and light fixtures are magnifique. There was a fish-bowl kind of light could sit at the desks all day long, so thoughtfully worked out. Just one change, a lighter hue for the them light and airy. Thank you, Niki!

    1. So happy you enjoyed this tour - thank you for pointing out all these factors!

  3. I can imagine you're looking forward to the "3 days of design". While you"re there, can you bring my compliments accross to La Boite for their stunning turn table design. What a marvel!

    1. Thank you for the tip - it was a crazy few days with over 400 exhibitors so sadly I didn't have time to see everything - but I have since looked it up online and it is indeed a marvel!
