Here in Malmö in southern of Sweden, it’s been unseasonably mild – so much so that it’s still considered to be summer meteorologically. But Sweden is one looooong country, and in the far North they’ve already had their first flurry of snow. 

Frida Lindgren shares snapshots from her everyday life in Tvärålund Northern Sweden – including glimpses inside her cosy country home, which she shares with her husband Anders, two sons Axel and Viktor as well as a host of pets! If you’ve been following my blog since 2018, you might recognise Frida’s house – but as someone who loves to tinker with interior design, it’s being constantly updated, so I felt it was time for a new feature! 

Think maximalist rather than minimalist, lots of pattern and prints, vintage finds and layers of texture to keep the cold at bay. Oh, and I love the swing and star lanterns – keep your eyes peeled! 

We had jars exactly like this in our kitchen growing up. I remember there was a really long one for spaghetti! They create such a nice display and are really practical too! 
According to reports, the more you have your food on display and can see what you have, the less you are likely to waste food. Do you organise your food into jars or keep it in its original packaging? We’re kind of a mix but I’d love to be better! I love these labelled spice jars*

Side cabinets like these are massively popular right now. The good news is, you can easily find simple inexpensive ones second hand and then give them a new lease of life with a lick of paint! 

Checks and gingham patterns are also having a moment – and tablecloths* and bedding* are a perfect way to bring your home up to date. I’m really happy with my gingham ironing board cover too (something I never thought I’d hear myself say – although it still doesn’t actually prompt me to do any ironing ). Since then, I’ve found a whole market out there for them like this one for autumn and one for spring – who knew? 

How pretty is this peacock chair? Such a great find! 

The sitting room area is layered with texture including a large rug, blankets and sheepskins for a cosy feel. 

Now that I’ve just updated my laundry room (thank you. so much for all your lovely comments non Friday!), I have a new found love for the room. Frida has gone for a traditional look with wallpaper, a chequered floor and plenty of baskets. 

The swing I was talking about. What a perfect way to sit and look out over the wintery landscape at the end of the day. 
Ever since moving to Sweden, I’ve loved these Christmas paper star lanterns* that hang in the windows, they look so pretty in the winter darkness. 
How cosy! And such beautiful surroundings too. It’s really got me in the mood for winter and the holiday season ahead, how about you?

Have a cosy start to the week!
