A Swedish Cottage in the City - In Autumn Time
Many of my Swedish friends tell me that November is their least favourite month. Admittedly, it is very dark. Here in the furthest south the sun will set at 4pm today. And in Kiruna – a city in the far North famous for its ice hotel, the sun will dip below the horizon at a crazy 2pm! Could you imagine? And we still have six weeks until the winter solstice. 
But I have always loved November. I love the golden leaves. I love the cosiness of coming home to a warmly lit home and I love steaming stews and apple pie! 
This charming cottage is my way of sharing not only the beauty of the fairytale quarter of Högelid in central Stockholm, but also the capital city in all it’s Autumn glory! It’s also a rare opportunity to take a peek behind the facade of one of the city’s historical homes. 
Welcome to Sweden in ‘höst’!

What a beautiful haven to come home to each day. It’s hard to imagine this cottage is in the heart of a city, don’t you think? 
Did I mention it’s for sale? A unique chance if ever there was one! 
Incidentally, I have had quite a few questions lately asking if Scandinavians tend to own less stuff. The simple answer is yes! Granted, some of these homes have been decluttered to make them appeal to potential buyers, on the whole, Scandinavians take a ‘less is more’ approach to decorating. I wrote a load about it in my Lagom book if you’d like to find out more*! 
In the mood for some autumn / fall inspiration? Here are some of my favourite sources: 
Happy mid week!
