Scandinavia in Ontario

When we first saw this stunning home on Remodelista we immediately thought it must be located in Scandinavia. It has a classic Swedish tiled fireplace (kakelugn in Swedish) and the home is full of Scandinavian design pieces. The house is actually located in Ontario, Canada and belongs to John and Juli Baker, founders of interior concept store Mjölk selling Scandinavian and Japanese pieces.

The couple had the 200 year old kakelugn sent from Sweden and reassembled in their home tile by tile, you can read more about it here in the Mjölks journal.

Among the beautiful furniture we can spot a Arne Jackobsen sofa, a classic Märta Måås-Fjetterström rug, Hans Wegner chairs and a few pieces from Svenskt Tenn and Josef Frank. We also have to mention the stunning antique solid marble bath tub from an old spa in Portugal, that must have come with a hefty shipping fee!

With a castle next door

One hour outside of Stockholm you can find this gorgeous home - it looks like it belongs in Toscana or perhaps the French country side! The house, which is part of the Engsholm castle, was built for to the head gardener of the castle's grand gardens. The actual Engsholm castle is just next door making this home's location very unique. The house has been very carefully renovated inside to keep true to the original aesthetic of the building, the exterior has a lot of its original charm intact. Imagine living here, what a dream!
