A Country-style House in Sweden

Bedroom with arched patio door

The first thing that grabbed me with this house was the architecture. The beautiful arched doorways and windows dotted around the place (especially that balcony door in the bedroom) are pretty dreamy. They’re big enough to flood the rooms with light, and yet the many dividing pieces of wood running across the panes have kept them from feeling like the interior of the house is on display to the outside world. I also really love the hanging pendants above the kitchen worktop. They break up the tiles really nicely, and yet are small enough not to be too distracting in what is quite a small room. They also make a nice change from the massive industrial lampshades I’ve seen everywhere else recently.

There is even a conservatory outside and the house is nestled in the middle of an extremely fancy garden! If you’re so inclined there is also a guest studio flat attached to the building, which would be perfect for renting out as a holiday let. Or as convenient accommodation for your friends when you throw a party, of course.

Lucy started writing Decorenvy as a scrapbook to record ideas when she began decorating her own place in 2013. Her frustration at the lack of alternatives to high street brands and catalogue decorating has since seen it evolve into a sourcebook for unusual and interesting design, complete with tours of beautiful homes and the occasional ill-advised DIY project.
