Friday calls for something extra special, don’t you think? And I have just the home! When Brita Zackari and Kalle Zackari Wahlström first stumbled across the country home south of Stockholm, Sweden, it was love at first site! Since then, the pair have painstakingly renovated the property little by little, slowly transforming it into a unique home where they live full time with children Essa and Björn. 
The pair have done a lot of the work themselves, learning as they go – a process which has been covered on Sweden’s popular TV show ‘Help, we’ve bought a farmhouse‘ (in Swedish). A sustainable approach has been key, choosing for example, egg oil tempura (a matte and full coverage paint made from egg linseed oil emulsion and natural pigments) instead of traditional paint for walls, furniture and storage and furnishing a lot of the living space with vintage finds. 
The result is a charming home where Brita’s Danish modern influence from childhood come together with Kalle’s traditional Swedish country style. Enjoy the tour, you’re in for a treat!
The furniture is a delightful blend of vintage and contemporary. I spy a pond mirror and Hay matin table lamp in the background. Look closely and you’ll discover a collection of fascinating unique pieces in the form of vases, candleholders, mobiles and art. 

Don’t be afraid to go dark in a small room. Here, deep green walls create a cosy feel while also helping to camouflage much-needed storage. 

Beautiful – and packed with personality! 

I love the earthy hues from the linseed oil – and all the unique touches. 

Is there anything that stands out to you? 

Take a peek inside other Scandinavian country homes this weekend in this archive (if this pops up first, you know the drill – just scroll on past and the others will be lurking below!). 

Have a wonderful weekend!
