Swedish country style with a modern twist

Tuesday, 14 August 2012

I love the relaxed country-style vibe of this home from Swedish interior magazine Hus o Hem. If you look closely there are so many interesting features such as the painted chequered kitchen floor, vintage tins used as plant pots, 'Dalarna' horses in frames, hats hung on the walls and used as decoration and a pallet on wheels used as part of a modular sofa. Soooo much inspiration!

Thank you for the great 'guest room tips' you gave me yesterday, I did my best to follow as many as possible (I'd love to come and stay if that's how much you pamper your guests!):

Habotai:  Fresh flowers and a scented candle
Jen Magazines and books about cookery, gardening and interiors etc.
Erin A card with the wireless internet password and fluffy towels
Kelly A tray with mints. water, snacks, alarm clock and slippers

Tonight we're going to enjoy a slice of Swedish tradition with a mini Crayfish party at home, maybe minus the schnapps - or is that boring of me?!!

  1. Really like the horses in the frame- neat. Also really like that low seating on casters- so convenient to be able to move around big pieces of furniture.
    I'm late, but I have another guest room tip: I always like to place a carafe with water and a glass by the bed. That way guests don't have to go bump in the night if they get thirsty :-)

  7. Yes, you´ve got to do the schnaps:) I don´t like it either, but a little splash of it is said to be good for the stomach when eating crayfish...Or just fake it and sing a long in the songs! xo Caroline

  8. The oversized string lights caught my eye (along with the horses and the pallet sofa)! Yes, I think I could feel very at home here!
