This month’s pick of the Pads is taken from the launch issue of Elle Decoration Country.
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.
It’s just about perfect for our taste. All the rooms in the house look so comfortable, cosy and lived in.
A natural, neutral palette with flashes of a brighter hue.
Anyone who’s seen our house know we love bright colours in a kitchen and this one has got real punch!
The spaces are full of texture – the furniture, the crockery, decorative objects and fabric of the building itself.
There are beautiful floors throughout, wide wooden floorboards and lovely, worn stone tiles…
…covered over here and there with various rugs and mats.
A simple, unfussy outdoor eating area to take in the views rounds things off perfectly.
