With brightly painted furniture and doors, wide, tall windows, and a greenhouse with a crystal chandelier, I have fallen completely in love with Persilija’s old house and gardens in the North of Sweden. You can see more on her charming flickr photostream, here. And also on her blog, fyrabarnsmamman. Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!

20 Comments on A Charming Swedish Cottage

  1. How absolutely gorgeous and magical. What a place to grow up in if you were a child! The imagination would run wild! I am just in love with this. Thanks for finding it, Tina!

  2. Oh there is something about a cottage isn't there? Something romantic… I love the lilac lavender tree in the front, and the colours, the very vivid colours!

  3. Oh this is just the sweetest little cottage!! I have been dreaming about finding our own little cottage on the water in Vermont..one day I hope!

  4. I expect to see an old witch come out and say, 'nibble nibble little mouse. Who's been nibbling at my house?' It is so Hansel and Gretel! I could move in tomorrow! xx

  5. Tina, this is scrumptious. Reminds me of Carl Larsson–do you know of him? If not, you might look him up–Swedish artist of maybe 100 years ago who had a fantastic house kind of like this. I think you'd like it.

  6. Absolutely charming! I'd love to visit a place like this, but I fear I'd never want to leave to go back to the "real world"…

  7. These are perfect! I want to live there….or at least spend many hours drooling over these pics!
