A lovely pared-back Skåne farmhouse

I can't believe it's Easter already (I hope you enjoyed my Easter DIY edit!). As promised, I'm back with a home tour before I take a few days off over the holidays (I hope you're planning a nice, relaxing few days too?). This 19th century farmhouse is located in the small village of Förslöv (which I had the pleasure of visiting to shoot a home for my book last spring) here in Sweden's southernmost county of Skåne. The home has been beautifully renovated by architect Lisette Bramsell Ohlsson and her husband Mats Ohlsson - basically 'building a new one within the old one'. Rustic wood beams give warmth to the space which has been decorated using neutral tones and pared-back furnishings throughout. Let's take a peek...

Lovely! That exterior?!

Get the look: Nemo sofa, wood flooring by Dinesen, Kvist light, Thonet chair, white pom poms (seen in Ella's bedroom), the bath was a flea market find and painted.

Other truly lovely Scandinavian farmhouses (in case you missed them previously) include the monochrome home of a Swedish photographer, a pretty västergötland farmhouse and a boho home,

My big Easter DIY egg edit

Do you have any Easter holiday traditions? Every year the girls and I come to London to spend it with my parents (P stays behind in Sweden to get our boat ready for the season, which is actually one of the highlights of his year - men?!). Besides the annual Easter egg hunt (we like the trail at Ham House), the girls and I also love to decorate the home with handmade pieces. This year we're taking inspiration from these fab eggs (and a bunny napkin for the easter table - how cute is that?!)....

Will you be making any of these?! 

Just in case, here's how:
