The Swedish country house of interior stylist Anna Furbacken would look perfectly at home in an Astrid Lindgren tale. It’s so idyllic! Nestled in the countryside in central Sweden, the historic croft is made up of one larger house and several outhouses positioned astound a central lawn – making it a perfect venue for parties like midsummer this Friday! 
Anna has been renovating the house over time to create a home where she and her family can relax and be themselves, both outdoors and in. The interior offers a refreshing respite from the ‘perfect’ living spaces we’re so used to seeing these days, offering a wonderful glimpse into family life on the farm. Look out for antique furniture, an array of vintage lights and soft, earthy, muted tones – as well as refreshing glimpses of laptops, cables, messy cushions and the odd margarine tub. 
Outdoors, there’s plenty of seating to go around with a chilled bamboo sitting room area, hammocks and a long table with a mix match of chairs. It’s the kind of place, you’d be happy to pull up a seat and stay for a while under the midnight sun. 
Note the choice of panelling in the kitchen (I’m all into panelling having installed it in our cabin. See my panelling guide here) – Anna has opted for a traditional bead panelling which perfectly matches the history and style of the house. 
The pendant you can catch a glimpse of in the picture above has become really popular in Sweden among the boho living aficionados, it’s from HK Living
I’m sure many happy childhood memories will be made at this beautiful house. And what a glorious place to spend midsummer’s eve! 
Could you imagine wiling away your summer days here?

Kram!
