Jessica's Beautiful Swedish Country Home and Garden

The towns and cities in Sweden have become distinctly quieter as more and more head out to the countryside to enjoy the nice weather (hey, we've waited a long time for this sunshine, we're not going to miss it!). For Swede Jessica Hedin, life continues at her quintessential country home from where she drives her business as a mindfulness therapist and coach - in between renovating a beautiful old house and toiling the soil to produce an abundance of home-grown vegetables and flowers. 

Step inside, and the house has been renovated with a deep respect for its past. Wood beams, panelling, exposed brickwork and original doors and windows provide a backdrop for an interior that's been painted in a soothing light green and white as well as with touches of traditional wallpaper. The living space has been furnished with a blend of antique furniture and light fittings which add to the wonderful, relaxed countryside vibe. Ready to take a peek? 

Beautiful! 

I particularly love the downstairs loo! And I find the garden so inspiring too. The grass was pretty much ruined at our cabin during the build and so I feel like we're starting from scratch. I don't think our garden will ever look quite like Jessica's, but I do love the idea of growing sweet peas, roses and dahlia as well as having a vegetable patch - something we've never been able to do in our tiny city garden! 

Is there anything that you felt particularly inspired by?

A Charming and idyllic Swedish Country Home in Summertime

The Swedish country house of interior stylist Anna Furbacken would look perfectly at home in an Astrid Lindgren tale. It's so idyllic! Nestled in the countryside in central Sweden, the historic croft is made up of one larger house and several outhouses positioned astound a central lawn - making it a perfect venue for parties like midsummer this Friday! 

Anna has been renovating the house over time to create a home where she and her family can relax and be themselves, both outdoors and in. The interior offers a refreshing respite from the 'perfect' living spaces we're so used to seeing these days, offering a wonderful glimpse into family life on the farm. Look out for antique furniture, an array of vintage lights and soft, earthy, muted tones - as well as refreshing glimpses of laptops, cables, messy cushions and the odd margarine tub. 

Outdoors, there's plenty of seating to go around with a chilled bamboo sitting room area, hammocks and a long table with a mix match of chairs. It's the kind of place, you'd be happy to pull up a seat and stay for a while under the midnight sun. 

Note the choice of panelling in the kitchen (I'm all into panelling having installed it in our cabin. See my panelling guide here) - Anna has opted for a traditional bead panelling which perfectly matches the history and style of the house. 

The pendant you can catch a glimpse of in the picture above has become really popular in Sweden among the boho living aficionados, it's from HK Living

I'm sure many happy childhood memories will be made at this beautiful house. And what a glorious place to spend midsummer's eve! 

Could you imagine wiling away your summer days here?

Here's a peek inside a few other Scandinavian country homes this bright and sunny Monday: 


Kram!

A House and Garden with a Beautiful Greenhouse on The Swedish Island of Gotland

Today I'm taking you to the magical Swedish island of Gotland for a tour of Linnea's romantic home and garden. Linnéa lives in south Gotland with her husband and their two children Lilly and Harry. During the day Linnéa runs interior shop Ladan I Hemse (a must visit if you're on Gotland!) and online baby boutique  Papijjon Sweden together with her best friend Sandra. And luckily for us, she also takes the time to share snapshots of her house and garden - including DIY ideas and her latest flee market finds on her beautiful instagram feed @leitntoinspiration

Think deep green and dark brown tones, traditional wallpaper and a nostalgic nod to times gone by.  

Welcome to Linnéa's world!

Linnéa and her family added a greenhouse to their property a couple of years ago. Greenhouses have become highly coveted in Sweden and are used not only for gardening - but also as an extra room! With its Gotland stone foundation this greenhouse is extra pretty! Note how Linnéa has lined the ceiling and walls with fabric to help keep the heat out. A crucial element! 

Simply beautiful! 

Where to start? The traditional touches, the greenhouse, the cats? All lovely! 

I'd love to hear your thoughts below! 

For more pics, hop on over to Linneás instagram @leitntoinspiration

And of course, it would be rude not to share more beautiful homes from the island! Take a peek at: 


Stor kram (big hug) from me!
