A Barn in Sweden

Ms. Gun Nowak, co-owner of Face Stockholm Cosmetics with her daughter,  has gone country.

You may recognize this creative team here:

She has stayed true to this Scandi. aesthetic in the barn, too:

Lots of white...

Of course the floors are white, too.

I am so pleased she kept the beams dark, though.

Talk about open floor plan.

And touches of gray and antiques...

Wouldn't you love to be her guest for a weekend?

Have a good day....I'm off to pre-shrink some fabric for a
slipcover, do about 20 loads of laundry after that,
somehow exercise, get the house clean because my
mother-in-law is coming to watch the kids (if I don't clean she
will clean everything then I will never find anything again)
 so I can see Sheryl Crow tonight!  Busy day...I promise to take some pictures.

  5. Hi Julie,
    Very pretty pictures... and that bed is gorgeous!
    Enjoy your day


  6. Love the barn! Have a great time at Sheryl Crow. I know what you mean about your MIL. When mine comes to visit, I feel like I must clean or she will do it for me making me feel like a slob!

  7. I love that daybed and the view even more! So glad she kept the beams as well!

  8. I'm so glad I found your blog! And I love all the white, so soothing! Good luck on your slipcover! I have lots of fabric for slipcovers, but they never seem to get cut or sewn...

  9. Woohoo! Fun night for you! My M.I.L. is the same way--always a cleaning frenzy before she arrives.

    I am such a sucker for a painted wood floor: white or patterned.

  10. Hi! Love your blog! I started one myself, that I think you'll love!! Please stop by! Take care, Ms. CotedeVelvetGreige xoxo btw:: Greige just took all of these pictures and did a post on the same thing.

  11. nothing better than a bright red barn-except of course, a bright red barn with that incredible interior-how lovely!

    Have fun tonight!

  12. Ahh, what a gorgeous place!! Good luck with your to-do list & enjoy the show! :)

  13. I LOVE that bed! Lovely. Have a great time tonight and good luck with all your projects before you go. I've had to let go of my MIL stress because
    a) no matter how hard I try it will NEVER be clean enough for her and
    b) she likes to drop in unannounced!
