Tjena! I thought I’d round off the week with a tour of the Swedish log house of fashion and interior designer Magda Marnell, Alexander  and their three children; dash, Milada and baby Lev. Nestled in the woods in eastern Uppland, the house was in total disrepair without running water or sewage when they bought it at the start of the pandemic. but they fell in love with the 17th century former iron smith’s home. 
Magda and Alexander set about drilling a well and installing an ecological sewer before combining three properties to form one larger house, building an extension and renovating the interior. Everything has been done with a careful hand, as to not disturb the historical soul of the space. Exposed beams, stone walls in earthy tones serve as a rustic backdrop for libraries of books, vintage and antique furniture and beautiful, unique touches (keep a look out for the mural by Czech Republic artist Jindra Skrivankova – inspired by murals commonly found in 18th century log houses – and representing the family of five – beautiful!).
The property was recently captured by Michael Lundblad for linen company Midnatt. Enjoy the tour!  

So beautiful, I love the rawness of it and how the history of the house shines through. 
Is there anything that caught your eye? 
See more of Magda’s home over at @magdamarnell and read the full interview here. You can also explore other Scandinavian country homes here if you’re on a roll! 
Wishing you all a great weekend!
Kram!
