A Country House {in Sweden}



My birthday is coming up in a few days, and family members sweetly asking what's on my wish list has prompted me to think about what I would really really like; A country house in Sweden. I know, not exactly the humblest of requests... And not exactly the most practical either, seeing as I live in Los Angeles, California... Nevertheless, every year come June, I think back to my idyllic childhood summers spent in the countryside of southern Sweden... And I dream of a little ( or big, either way :) Swedish house to call my own. I can easily while away hours trawling the local home listings - so inspiring and fun! Today I found this newly refurbished jewel built in 1909...

Pretty charming, isn't it? Well, a girl can dream...

Well then, Happy Birthday! and a Swedish country house isn't impossible: my guests this weekend divide their time between Little Sur and Goteborg.

Maybe you just have to creep up on it...

That house is just mind-meltingly alluring~

I LOVE Swedish style so much! I just discovered it while blogging, and I just adore it. Great post, and happy birthday, fellow Gemini! I've noticed that a lot of bloggers are Geminis, I think it's because we're so artistic!
