Hej heeej! I have such a beautiful, charming family home to share with you today. Located in the small town of Jacobstad (or ‘Pietarsaari‘) in Ostrobothnia, Finland, the house dates back to the 1700s and has been painstakingly renovated by owners Victoria Snellman (who runs a webshop selling the cutest knitted garments – how adorable is this romper?!) and her husband, Robin. The pair share the home with their two children Sonny Lou and Juno Mae. Touches of rough wood and sheepskin add warmth to an otherwise neutral, monochrome colour scheme, and a swing hangs from a beam for the children to enjoy year round (when they’re not busy playing with the family cat!).

These beautiful photos were taken by Carina Olander and styled by Anna Truelsen for Lantliv.

Oh so charming. I absolutely love everything about this home! How about you?!

Get the look: Kitchen: Tolix armchairs, source similar sheepskin throws here,  AGAM junior chair from IKEA. This industrial pendant is similar. Open area – I love this and this butterfly chair, white sheepskin, this rustic swing is similar. Sitting roomleather pouf. Children’s roomLightly sells leather and wood shelves like these (there’s also a great DIY guide here). Give chest-of-drawers a new lease of life with a lick of black paint and leather pulls, like in the children’s bedroom. 

You can see the full tour of this delightful home in Lantliv 3/2017.

Yesterday I featured a colourful and relaxed Helsinki home, and it’s so interesting to see the contrast between the two – both equally charming in their own way, don’t you think?

Carina and Anna have such a talent for finding and capturing dreamy country homes – whether high up on a hill over looking the Norwegian fjords, a house in the heart of Småland, Sweden or even Carina’s own idyllic summer cottage! Thank you so much for the kind permission to share some of your work!

Have a lovely day!
