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!

Shades of Blue

Don't you just love the classic Swedish tiled fireplaces, this pale blue one is such a lovely addition to this room!

This sweet Stockholm home has plenty of really nice classic features. The kitchen, which has clearly been newly renovated, has been carefully done so to stay true to the original history and design of the space. The pine floorboards which has been sanded down and to expose the natural wood goes beautifully with the pale grey painted woodworks, seen on the window frames and doorways. It's a shame the original radiators are no longer there, they would have been the perfect cherry on top in this stunning home

Grandeur

This grand Swedish home is really something special! The windows, the decorative ceiling, the ornate fireplaces - simply put just stunning. We are big fans of the green shade on the walls by Farrow and Ball which looks beautiful in both day and evening light.

We've spotted a lot of gorgeous Svenskt Tenn furniture in this apartment - one of our favourite Swedish heritage brands - which works so well with this grand space.

A sense of space in a small home

This sweet little apartment in Gothenburg has really succeeded in making compact living feeling spacious. The green-blue wall colour creates a sense of space and the rattan and naked wood makes for a calm feel - and of course plenty of greenery and plants help add freshness to the home. A winning combo!

High in the sky

There is something so lovely about a top floor apartment - the feeling of being high up in the sky and having a constant stream of light flooding in!

Can't you just imagine having your weekend breakfasts here with the balcony door open, a cup of coffee in your hand reading the paper?

Cosy and light

A trend we've seen emerging in Sweden recently is beautifully painted woodworks – such as doors, skirting and window frames. This works particularly well in older homes as they have plenty of period features such as wooden clad wall panels. To achieve this look it's important to pick a pale muted tone that works well with your furniture and decor. Unlike the Brits the Scandinavians don't really use their curtains much and this style means you can skip curtains all together. Venetian blind has been fitted in the bedroom windows which is a good way of getting some privacy without taking anything away from the window detailing.

1920's perfection

Johanna Bradford shared this stunning home on her blog recently. The home belongs to her friends in Gothenburg who live in a lovely 1920s house. We love the William Morris wall paper, wood-clad kitchen walls and the Royal Copenhagen dinnerware service which can be spotted around the home!
