A Dose of Swedish Style

(picture perfect -a friend's home)

Some of my favorite childhood memories took place on trips with my parents to visit my Swedish family in Stockholm. I loved (and still do) the people, color, styles and architecture. While the city of Stockholm was of course one of the highlights of our vacation, the place I looked forward to visiting most was my aunt's country house. Right on the water, we'd have breakfast on the dock and pick blackberries in the afternoon. These days, several of my cousins also have small cottages on the property making it even more festive, but the simplicity of the place has never changed. It's been a few years since I've been able to make the trip, so I thought an inspiration board might suffice! For today that is.

The fresh orderly look is what I aim to achieve, but seems simply instinctive to the Swedish.
