Swedish fireplace inspiration

Wednesday, 30 January 2013

So many of the Swedish homes you see feature a fab Kakelugn (tiled stove) in the corner of the room. These date back to the 1880's neo-renaissance era (today's history lesson!). Many of them are not used for heating today but can still look pretty with lit candles. This home for sale through Alvhem is lucky enough to have one in the sitting room AND in the kitchen.

There is something very cool and cosy about having a fireplace in the kitchen don't you think?! In fact I'll add 'kitchen fireplace' to my dream home 'must have' check list right now!

  14. I would love to have a fireplace like that in our house, it always looks so cozy and it would be perfect for those cold and dark winter nights. The rest of the apartment isn't too shabby either...
