This featured house is a beautiful converted Swedish farmhouse next to the sea – no wonder it’s referred to as an ‘idyll’!

Owners Maria and Sam, respectively a textile designer and an artist, spend the summer months decamped here from Stockholm for 6 months of the year.

Anyone who’s seen our house know we love bright colours in a kitchen and this one has got real punch!
