We had our first flurry of snow here in southern Sweden yesterday. By early evening our house was all candlelit and my little girls cheeks were rosy from the cold wind outside. I do miss a lovely  roaring fire though – or perhaps a beautiful ‘kakelugn’ (tiled oven) like the one in this wonderful apartment in Gothenburg. Infact, the entire space is just lovely…the light wood floors, the soft grey and blue tones, the simple furnishings (those sheepskin slippers have my name on them!). I love how they’ve made a small bedroom cosy yet highly functional too. Let’s take a peek inside….

So serene! I could definitely take homage here while the snow falls silently outside, how about you?!

A few items I know and love: kitchen / dining: House Doctor cluster light, bentwood chairs. Sitting room: gotland sheepskin throw, these sheepskin slippers are similar (toasty!), source a rattan chair here, I love this leather tote. Bedroom: wooden clothes rail.

Looking for a little more Swedish home inspiration today? There are over 340 Swedish homes in my archive – can you believe that? I’d say time extremely well spent, wouldn’t you?! If this home comes up first just scroll past it.

Or, if warm weather and sunshine is more your thing, you might prefer to dream of a holiday at Villa Pia in Lippiano  Italy. Located between Tuscany and Umbria, Villa Pia is set in 5 acres of land and has vistas over olive groves, vineyards and a magnificent 10th century castle (how wonderful?!). It seems there’s plenty to do too, with two swimming pools, a trampoline and an adventure playground – as well as cookery and art classes for children and adults. I’m already dreaming of afternoons on the terrace with a glass of prosecco and a book. How about you?!

Snow? What snow?!

Have a lovely day!
