A Swedish farmhouse dream

This beautiful farmhouse in the Swedish country side is currently up for sale through Historiska Hem. If you are up for relocating deep into the Swedish forest then this should be right up your street!

We love how the current owners have carefully renovated and preserved the original charm of the house. The dining room with all its beautiful mullioned windows is really something special! You can see more images of the home here

Scandinavian simplicity in Brooklyn

This beautiful place is the home of uber cool Swedish entrepreneur Babba Riviera and her husband Carl. Their apartment in Brooklyn hits the perfect mix of Scandinavian simplicity with a bit of New York attitude.

You can see all the images and read the interview with her here, on Swedish Elle Decorations's website

One of our favourite features in this space is the custom built drinks cabinet just off the kitchen & dining space, it matches the dining furniture perfectly and utilises an otherwise dead space in this room. 10 out of 10!

Here are some of our favourite ideas - also don't forget to take a look at the entire Pinterest board for more inspiration

Swedish Midsummer

This Friday marks a big Swedish holiday - Midsummer (or Midsommar as it is called in Swedish). It's the celebration of the summer solstice, originally a pagan tradition which has been a very important day in the Scandinavian calendar for thousands of years.

Modern Swedish celebrations includes eating outside (even if it is cold and rainy!), drinking snaps and singing snaps-songs and of course dancing around the flower clad may pole while wearing a flower crown.

The flower crown should be made using wild flowers and often birch tree leaves, traditionally if you are unmarried you should pick seven kinds of wild flowers, lay them under your pillow on midsummers night and you will dream about your one true love.

Apart from the snaps there are a few things you need to include to make your Swedish midsummer feast complete! These are foods such as herring, egg halves, new potatoes with dill, gravalax, fish roe, sour cream and chives and of course for dessert - strawberries and cream sponge or meringue cake.

Here are some inspiration to get your ideas flowing. Take a look at our Midsummer Pinterest board for more ideas
