What is more beautiful than a Scandinavian cottage? This cottage located in Värmdölandet, against the Lindal Strait was originally built in the mid-1800s and has been totally renovated in the late 1990s by skilled craftsmen. The renovation has really allowed preserve the building’s soul without compromising on comfort. The main cottage is gorgeous, but there’s also a guest cottage, an outdoor sauna and kitchen.

This place is one to keep in our hearts.


The Little Red Cottage

Surrounded by nature.

Open The Doors

Beautiful gardens.

Living Room

This is the kind of place you want to relax by the fire, on the couch, on the floor with a good company and a fun board game.

White & Green

Lovely green couch. That fireplace makes everything feel cozy.

More Fire

Yet another stunning fireplace and take a look at that red staircase. Don’t you love it???

To the Kitchen

A good view of the eating area, kitchen and those red steps!

Cottage-y Kitchen

Great kitchen for a cottage.

Cottage-y Soul

Very charming.

Eating Area

This one is going to my “dream file”!

Sweet & Delicious


Master Bedroom

Cozy and comfy. Why more?

Love Letters

The perfect place to write.

Guest Bedroom

Every cottage should have quilts on the beds.


A delicate room.


Hang your towels.

To the Garden

Everything looks impeccable in this place.

Guest House

Tiny and cute guest house.

Cottage Love

A good view of the main house, guest house, outdoor kitchen (no messy lobster inside!) and the little sauna on left.

Blue Skies

Can you imagine spending warm days in this place?


It would be fun to have a sauna with this view.

The Place

Perfect place to have some food with family and friends.

Outdoor Kitchen

Wonderful place to cook your meals by the water.


Just wonderful!

You and Your Thoughts

I know I’d spend many hours here with my thoughts…

This place is truly beautiful. It has everything one can dream about cottage: the ocean, the coziness, the freedom and the outdoor space. I really hope you liked this one too!

How’s everything in your life? Do you feel you’re in full speed? I have to say it seems that I’m not stopping lately. I think I’m already “nesting”! I mean, I’m 30 weeks pregnant now and there’s only 10 to go! Can you feel how excited I am? Well, I just can’t wait! My husband and I went to visit the hospital the other day and we’re both happy with it. Also, we had the ultrasound last week and it was great. Our little Matthew was yawning (my husband thinks he’s getting bored inside there! LOL). It was the cutest thing ever! I know there’s not many things left to be done. I’m trying to be very organized with the things we still have to do, but I just feel a bit nervous. I know it’s normal (right, friends?!), but I know I also have to relax more. Let the worries aside and enjoy every day that comes by and be truly open for this new chapter in my life, after all this is such an important time.

One more thing, thank you for being here and for always listening to me. It’s so good to know I’m able to share my story here.

  6. Lu!!! você é uma querida mesmo,né? olha, estou cansada, exausta mesmo, porque além de tudo o que já fazia, incluí a loja e isso realmente está me cansando, mas estou feliz, muito feliz. Gostaria muito de morar perto de você, porque acho que seríamos otimas amigas para conversar muuuito – claro que já somos amigas, você me dá o maior apoio, mas ao vivo seria muito mais gostoso, né??

    E você, o baby…tá tudo bem?

  10. Sheila Zeller said,

    I love this one!

  11. Taylor Greenwalt said,

    I would love to wake up to those views every morning. To have a cup of coffee on the deck would be so nice.

  12. SizzleandZoom said,

    This home is as you said charming, comfy and cozy and beautiful views. It would be great spending the warm days of summer here. The best to you and your family as you wait thru the next ten weeks for your new little joy.

  13. hampton hostess said,

    Love this post–I stayed in Dolera a few summers ago in a cottage that looked exactly like the one features–so charming, so Swedish!

  14. Tee of Vinnord said,

  15. kristin said,

    Hi Luciane, this is really Swedish and the scenery is just like here in Norway also 🙂 Lovely cottage! Is your baby’s name Matthew? That’s such a BEAUTIFUL name and biblical, too. My boy’s name is Marcus. Both great names, right!? Have a great week!!!

    Love, Kristin

  16. The Single Nester said,

    Just dreamy!

  19. Tereza said,

    Luciana, este chalé é encantador, adorei!
    Além das imagens externas de encher os olhos, aquele cantinho com banco está fora de série.

  20. Cottage Coastal Store, Inc ~ Kim said,

    Oh…this just warmed my Swedish heart 🙂 Loved it all so much Luciane…I hope to go see Sweden some day that is for sure. Thank you as always for the “Cottage of the Week” series! Happy to hear you and your little Matthew are doing well. Loved that he was yawning – too cute. xo Kim

  21. Karen said,

    Lovely! Just back from Vancouver Island so this one reminds me of some of the vistas there and in the Maritimes……

  22. Barbara@HausDesign said,

    Pure, beautiful simplicity! I could feel myself slowing down just looking at the pictures! 🙂

  23. Greet said,

    What a charming cottage! I love everything Swedish! I would love to spend some time there to relax!!!

  24. Gloria said,

    Totally Gorgeous… meaning: 1. gorgeous home and, 2. gorgeous update on Matthew and your getting ready to nest. 😉

  25. Gloria said,

    p.s. yes! I CAN feel your excitement!
    p.p.s. I think my ‘your’ above should have been spelled ‘you’re’ — meaning “you are” getting ready to nest! No, I’m not an English teacher… maybe I should have been?

  26. Mandi Smith T said,

    Adore this cottage. I want one!!! It makes me think that the world could not touch you there. Like nothing in the world would ever matter. Fabulous find, Lucianne.

  27. Alexandra Brooks said,

    Darling cottage. Tx 4 sharing it Lu!

  28. PriscilaPetersDecor said,

    Hello, my friend

    You did it again. Another lovely cottage.
    Hoe beautiful are those view?! That eating area is cute. Love it!!

    Glad to know Matthew is doing well. Wish you the best.

  29. Calico Child said,

    Ohh I love this one i bet its so dramatic in the winter & to cosy up in front of the fires with a large hot chocolate would be devine :))
