house tour: swedish family home

This is the home of my landlords and neighbors, Ann and Jesper and their three children. They moved out here to the Stockholm Archipelago from the city just last year and are restoring a 10 year old home. One of the first things they did upon moving in, was to white wash the floors and all the walls of the interior. Ann calls their style, " A harmonious mix of old and new."

 The dining room is a mix of new purchases and family heirlooms, like the chandelier which belonged to Ann's grandmother. With so many traditional features like the built-in fireplaces and the clapboard ceilings, it is hard to tell if the home is old or new. The outside is currently being painted but features a traditional grass roof! Hopefully I can show that to you soon. See more photos and details on my Flickr

  1. I love that even Ann’s place settings are all white. Their home is a wonderful endormsent of the Scandinavian custom of removing your shoes before entering a home.

  2. Hi Natalie. Thanks for your comment. I will get in touch with the owners and see if they have a record of the paint colors and companies. If I forget, will you email me? chelseafuss (at) gmail (dot) com.

    Thanks!!
