Up for a little dreaming today? How about this proposal: quit your job, sell your house / give up your rental and swap it all for a beautiful 19th century house in the Swedish countryside. Love the water? Even better! This newly renovated cottage is in Onsala, Halland county – a few kilometres from the Kattegat sea. There’s even a little harbour where you can moor your boat. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The pretty white and red clapboard cottage has been impeccably renovated in shades of blue, white and light wood – in true Swedish style! I also love the blend of iconic Scandinavian pieces and antiques. Now it’s just waiting for someone to come along and cherish it as much as the previous owners have. Could it be you? Or me? Or one of your friends?
Well, what do you think? Ready to make the move?
I can’t tell you how tempted I am. Its a really beautiful part of the world too – not far from the Gothenburg Archipelagos!
I couldn’t resist including a picture of the laundry room. In Sweden the washing machine tends to be either in the basement, a separate laundry room or in the bathroom (whereas in the UK it’s often in the kitchen). Where is the washing machine in your home? Despite the awkward basement room with its low ceilings and small window – the owners have managed to add a light, whimsical touch with linen curtains (try Grey Moose Atelier* for similar)!
You can see more pictures and dream about this house here (in Swedish).
Fancy taking a peek inside a few other white and blue homes today?
