In the space of three years, owners Malin, Wilhelm and their daughter Olivia have transformed a former Fisherman’s cottage in beautiful Österlen, South Sweden into a light-filled family home. A combination of white, wood and concrete, the living space has gone through a total gut renovation and appears way more spacious than its 85 m2 (914 f2) thanks to the airy open-plan layout and wonderful high ceilings. Malin and Wilhelm were keen to flirt with the past – and signs of the original 1870 architecture are everywhere: exposed beams, wood panelling and on the upper level – the original floor which has been whitewashed – all of which adds oodles of charm! At this time of year, life spills outside where several seating areas and an abundance of fruit trees await! Anna Truelsen and Jonas Lundberg paid a visit to take these pictures. 
What a summer oasis! 

I can’t even begin to imagine the level of work the family have put into this renovation (it would be so interesting to see the ‘before’ pictures – apparently it was in a total state when they bought it!). 

The bedrooms in particular really stood out to me – I love the dark wood exposed beams, they add a wonderful contrast to the room. 

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

Österlen is a lovely part of Skåne (the county I live in) and known for its beautiful landscape and light, attracting many artists. 

I recently featured this house in Österlen, being sold by Laura and Nora of Our Food Stories and out of coincidence, I met the new owner at a party last week (Sweden is a very small world!). Needless to say, they were thrilled and can’t wait to spend summer there! 

Other houses I’ve featured (and love) from the area include:
Here in Sweden, the sun is shining, and the school summer holidays have begun (queue very messy house and an empty food cupboard!). This afternoon, I’m sneaking off over the bridge to Copenhagen to see all the latest design news from 3 Days of Design. If you’d like to follow along, head over to my instagram stories! 
Wishing you all a lovely, sunny day!
