This rural home is located on a hill overlooking lake Sijan in central Sweden and the owners completely renovated the home and have gone for a classically Swedish monochrome colour scheme and designer furniture pieces to complete the look. The dining room has large windows overlooking the lake and a mix of Bertoia and Bentwood chairs around a traditional table.

A mid-century leather lounge dominates the living room and the original fireplace gives the room some extra country character and charm. The artwork and accessories throughout are carefully selected and match the colour scheme and style of the house 

The kitchen is completely white from floor to ceiling, with only a lots of appliances and decorating accessories to add some colour ... and a lovely circular rug in the middle of the floor. 

An adjoining study area has a trestle table desk and throw rug over the chair. Again, the art selection shows a real eye for interior design and gives the work area a very feminine feel

As lovely as the interior are, the 'piece de resistance' of this home is the view over the lake, best enjoyed from the entertaining deck. A weathered table and French bistro chairs are the perfect complement to this idyllic setting
