4 Swedish summer houses to kill for

Swedish holiday houses or summer cottages yes dear these cute residents come with many names. In Sweden we have never bought so many summer houses as right now and brokers say that the most popular summer houses are the ones with a sea view. However one may work hard for the money because it really costs A LOT living by the sea in Sweden.

Wherever your summer house may be it is important to decorate it for the style you desire. Here is there for Inredningsvis décor tips for getting the cute Swedish summer house style, both the owner and the guests will like :)

1. Holiday décor in classic Swedish style:

This is the Swedish summer house of summer houses and everyone has probably sometime in life dreamed of a little red summer cottage some time :)

To decorate a small cabin requires little planning when everything is on a smaller scale. Paint the walls and ceiling white if you want to get it larger. Decorate with small furniture like round tables and tiny wooden chairs. This fits in well with the old-fashioned furniture so only to find bargains at the flea market.

AND no red summer cottage without a pantry and an old iron stove, if there is no one  you actually MUST buy one :)

2. Interior ala 19th Century Swedish old styled summer house

Think Swedens icon painter Karl Larsson , think the famouse Swedish poet Evert Taube songs when you decorate an old turn of the century. Bargain antique furniture on the action and rokoko best suited as dining furniture. Decorate alsio with old china, old silver from grandmas golden days and obviously a classic Swedish white linen cloth on the table.

In summer the house’s bedrooms can use romantic Laura Ashley-style on pillows and wallpaper ie floral. Mix with white cotton sheets and old classic bedside table. Preserving house old style and decorate after its character is important.

3. Holiday in the bohemian crazy decor style:

Here you can go out with their crazy creativity, but tamed borders. Use old worn furniture without repainting them. Match with bold colors and patterns. In the second picture they have chosen an unexpected wallpaper that actually cuts against other furnishings. But it is on is nice with bohemian décor, that will decorate by themselves :)

Remember the movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona, a little crazy but quite creatively wonderful.

4. Holiday New England with marine decor:

Here you can hear the ocean sounds throughout the whole interior. If you are not short of money you have the freedom to buy a large summer house in luxurious New England style. Decorate by sea, cliffs and sandy shore shades. It is, in white, blue and beige adding dark floors in natural wood and upholstered white chairs. Here in Sweden New England houses are HOT STUFF right now :)

Rattan is a must in any form, as well as images or objects with boats. Furnish also with the New England lanterns and blue striped cushions.

Think the Hamptons and a luxury marine seaside hotel.

However, sometimes the simplest of life is just good enough :)

Swedish summer houses

I hope you liked my special about the holiday house with interior design tips. Remember that it is your own little summer oasis to escape from the stress and then it must also feel personal and cozy.

My childhood house where I grew up, later became my summer place to escape the city for. It was not luxurious att all but it’s still the place I long for and remember forever now now that it’s gone.

To all of you who can not afford a private summer house, I say, keep the dream alive that’s when it finally becomes a reality :)

Have a great week cuties.


  1. I was just in Sweden and I love that place! I was actually dreaming about staying there for Summer already. Your pictures of these beautiful homes make me want to live there NOW! LOL! I like the 3rd and 4th home. Definitely a home I can picture myself living in =)
