Hej friends, I hope you had a lovely weekend! Do you ever find that you really look forward to December and all the festive things you’ll do and then it arrives and you feel completely overwhelmed? I was feeling like that on Friday so I planned a day of cross country skiing with a dear friend of mine. We headed out to the Skåne countryside and spent the day gliding (occasionally ungracefully!) through the glistening snow. And I came home feeling like a new person. It was with this in mind that I chose today’s home tour: a magnificent contemporary ski chalet in Vemsdalen, Sweden. Read on to feel inspired, and feel a sense of calm a world away from the Christmas chaos!
The dreamy contemporary ski chalet is a stripped back version of the usual long cabin – with pitched ceilings and waxed birch plywood walls. The focus is on the surrounding a nature, and a window seat makes an inviting spot from which to watch skier whizz by!
Darker colours help to add contrast and add a cosy touch.
A ladder leads up to a loftbed.
Imagine waking up here and watching the slow fall! I’d be tempted to stay there all day with a book, how about you?
A warm sauna awaits after a day of alpine skiing, snowmobiling, cross country or dog sledding in the snowy surroundings.
Would you like to see a couple of pictures from my cross country skiing in the South of Sweden yesterday? Here are a couple of snaps I took with my phone, it was a rare gems of a day!
Above you can see my friend Ullis, over the barbecue just behind the tracks!
Wishing you all a great start to the week!
