It is May people, summer is around the corner and this it when I start dreaming about a second home in Sweden. It is not in the cards right now but my wonderful husband is convinced it is going to happen in our lifetime! And if he says so… (!). Winter time I dream about a city apartment in Stockholm and this time of the year I am lusting for something light and airy with a view. Just came across these lovely homes in Sweden.
The Swedes are, in my opinion, masters at embracing light (for many months they must make do with very little or none at all) and making living less complicated. And the love and respect for mother nature is part of the Swedish DNA. Just look at the earthy colors and organic materials in these images and so synonymous with Swedish design. (You won’t find a lot of plastic here…).
This is a boat house with its upper floor converted into a guest suite. Not so shabby!
Here is a brave Swede who added a touch of color to go with all that fresh white!
And speaking of Mother Nature. Here is a summer DIY project for you. I have seen tree trunk turned side tables in the past. But nothing as grand as this one and on wheels! I know what I will be hunting for this season (hoping to find something similar in the woods). Admit that you are tempted too!
I don’t know about you but my week has been insanely busy. I am trying very hard to keep up with everything and everyone but 24 hours/day only takes me so far… I hope to come up for air soon.
Warm hugs to you all!
