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!

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

This Incredible Swedish Country Home By The Sea Could Be Yours!


Do you ever dream of moving to the countryside (or perhaps you've made the move already?). As a Londoner at heart, I'm so happy in our little townhouse in Southern Sweden, but that doesn't stop me from dreaming about living in a beautiful house in the country. Somewhere old, somewhere with acres of outdoor space for our children to run riot, and somewhere with my very own studio atelier. Oh and did I mention the sea view?! Hmmm. Perhaps I'm asking for too much. Or so I thought.


Earlier today I discovered exactly this on a real estate site!! The artist's home dates back to the 1800's and is located right on the beach in Smygehamn (try pronouncing that!) on Sweden's beautiful southernmost tip. It also has the most incredible atelier (with it's own fireplace!) *heart skips several beats*! There's one slight drawback though. It's way out of my price league. Ah well. Perhaps we can share it?!



The bohemian in me loves traditional-style mix and match kitchens. How pretty is this cabinet under the sink? Knowing my family we'd have a hard time remembering which draw we put things in, but it'd would be worth it all the same!

A traditional Swedish masonry oven in the corner of the bedroom is something I've always dreamed of! Loving the cane sleigh bed too (try Serena & Lily* for similar).

It's so inspiring how all the items are vintage / antiques of some sort. I'm thinking that if I ever make that move to the country this type of furniture would be high on my list. My Mother used to take us to loads of auctions in Sussex, England when we were kids (she collected antique chest-of-drawers like I collect cushions!!)  and I've never really had the opportunity to do this as an adult. 

This bath is so pretty - and if you hop over to the rest of the pictures over at Residence you'll spy an original Thomas Crapper loo (I wonder how it found it's way to Sweden?!).  

 This was the fireplace I was telling you about. I'm already picturing myself here in the winter. Would I get any work done ? Potentially not! But think of all the tea I'd drink while I looked out over the stormy waters!









And there you have it.

Anyone else envisaging themselves living here?!

Me? I'm already on one of those deck chairs (in my mind).

Whoever buys this house is one lucky soul!

What does your dream home look like?

Danish home with a romantic side

Morning all! I was so excited to discover this Danish home as it was a while ago I featured a space with a soft romantic side. The home itself is beautiful in it's simplicity (original features, white canvas with brown accent). However, the chandelier and shabby chic style mirror in the sitting room, soft floral cushions in the bedroom and a candelebra with floaty lace curtains in the bathroom adds such a pretty, floaty feminine touch.

We're currently moving our entire bedroom up one flight of stairs into a 40 metres open plan space - so exciting! I'm obivously driving my man nuts with all my bedroom moodboards! But I'm still a little stuck - do we go modern scandinavian or antique, floaty, romantic? Perhaps somewhere in between?

Do you have two styles you can never choose between?!

The home of a LA photographer

If some one works in the art world you can almost count on the fact that they will have a wonderful home. The home of LA photographer Amy Neusinger is definitely no exception! Mostly white with a romantic touch, Amy has added a spot of industrial to create a truly interesting and beautiful space. Vackert!

Have a lovely weekend all and see you Monday! x
