Tjeeena! I hope you had a ‘underbart’ weekend!I seem to have come into my studio bursting with energy, extremely unusual for a Monday morning. But I think it could have something to do with the home tour I have lined up for you – it’s so beautiful! Swedish illustrator Sara Bergman and her family have set up home in the picturesque village of Brunnby, not far from where my parents-in-law live here in Skåne county. Her beautiful home is testament to Sara’s creativity. Look beyond the soothing earthy tones and you’ll find one-off pieces, treasured items made by artist friends, beautiful pottery and layer upon layer of texture. Oh, and keep a look out for the well camouflaged TV and dozing family dog Kerstin (what would a Monday morning be without the latter?).
Such a beautiful cabinet and cushions – but the star of the show has to be that marble bowl. I believe it’s by Olsson & Jensen, but sadly couldn’t find it available online. Let me know if you have more luck!
Sara’s home is full of beautiful sculptures. The one above is by Stockholm-based Elisabeth Ottebring. Sara also loves pieces by her talented friend Carola Kastman – and I have to say, I’m so excited to have discovered her art through Sara! If you have the time, check out her paintings and sculptures here.
Can we all just take a moment’s pause to admire this bedroom door?
What a beautiful way, in a perfectly imperfect way. I love how Sara has supported other local artists throughout her home.
Is there anything that stood out to you?
Head on over to Sara’s instagram to see a load more pictures from her home today.
The entire Kullahalvön area (where Brunnby is located) is popular among artists and other creatives – it’s also one of the few places in southern Sweden you can surf! I’ve featured several homes from the area, including:
I hope all this inspiration has put a spring indoor step!
