A Cosy, Rural Swedish Country Home At Christmas

By | December 17, 2018

Fanny Lindén’s IG @hostedbynature profile reads “mother of three, collecting dust & memories”. But there’s so much more to her wonderful Falu red home by the sea in rural Västerbotten, Sweden. As one half of the creative design duo BYN Collective and blogger behind The Waves We Make, Fanny documents their sustainable daily life on the former farm, surrounded by antiques, vintage finds, handmade items and pretty festive touches. Pour yourself a steaming cup of coffee, it’s time to get cosy!

Scandinavian homes are often synonymous with a minimalist look and feel, but this is living proof that you can find cosy homes with surfaces bursting with ceramics, utensils, trays and other items!

Those curls – so adorable! 

A week doesn’t go by without baking in the Lindén household – and the pantry is brimming with ingredients! 

A vent on the Swedish masonry oven is used to hang Christmas stars, wreaths and other items depending on the time of year.

I was going to talk about the decor and then I spotted the kittens…

(source a similar round jute rug here*).  

How pretty are these hand-dipped candles?!  

I found similar on Etsy here*.  Lovely! 

Cats always find the cosiest spot in the house, don’t they? These felines have made themselves at home on pretty striped linen bedding* while the snow falls silently outside.

Oh so beautiful! This home has left me with a warm fuzzy glow.

Hands up if you could also spend the entire Christmas holiday here…

Check out Fanny’s blog The Waves We Make and Instagram @hostedbynature for more snapshots – and BYN Collective to learn more about her creative services.

I’m starting to feel a move to the Swedish countryside is in order, how about you?!

Have a great start to the week – we’re nearly there friends, five days to go and counting!

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
