A Contemporary Swedish Ski Chalet With a Wonderful Window Seat!


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. 

How heavenly. I’d quite happily spend my winter here, how about you? 

Dream about more Scandinavian inspired cabins and ski chalets today.

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!
