Once upon a time…Built in 1909, this turn of the century villa is a masterpiece featuring a welcoming and modern interior in stunning Swedish style.
The Exterior – Swedish Design and 3-Style Facade
This stunning Swedish villa resides on Lidingö, an island in the inner Stockholm archipelago. Go beyond the walls and take a tour of this beautifully designed Swedish gem.
Built in 1909, this Scandinavian Christmas hideaway was designed in Swedish Art Nouveau and National Romanticism more than 100 years ago. The garden is lit with floodlights and lanterns which create a romantic and cozy atmosphere. This unconventional villa has 4 floors and a 3-style facade. The bottom exterior of the home is covered in stone, while the top features wooden panelling. The homeowners chose plaster for the middle for a modern twist.
Eat Like a King – The Scandinavian Dining Room
The dining room was created on a budget with beautiful IKEA chairs that have removable cream seat covers. The kitchen island is crafted from glass with a solid oak counter top, perfect for smaller spaces! The ceiling lighting is “Credo 111” by Delight, and is operated by remote control throughout the home.

Minimalist Glass Kitchen
The timeless harringbone parquet is original throughout the home and was re-stained to a dark molasses color. What is so great about the travertine tiles in the kitchen is they have underfloor heating for added warmth and comfort. The homeowners chose a stainless steel countertop to keep true to the modern re-design of the house. A green-tinted glass backsplash was chosen insted of traditional tile in the kitchen.
Christmas is near! Simplistic evergreen branches and trees, pinecones, and wooden pots are what characterize this home’s Scandinavian interior design. Modern white candles in different sizes by the fireplace are also a perfect compliment to any Scandinavian decorista.
Here, the owners show off their homemade mulled wine, mixed with cranberries and cinnamon sticks. The Swedish and Scandinavian lifestyle is all about minimalism and natural materials or elements.
The 100-year old Fireplace
Although this stunning home is over 100 years old, the homeowners believed in keeping as many original elements during the renovation process. Here, the original fireplace stove is covered in plaster for a minimalist design. Woven baskets are stacked nearby as an omen to Scandinavian basketweaving tradition.

A flower pot is placed in the middle with a pop of red color to serve as a focal point. Candles and decor balance the act on both sides. What makes this home so lovely is how casual the decorating and design is. Left: a picture frame leans gently on the wall for modern, relaxed flair.
The Bedroom – Scandinavian Inspiration
Mixing and matching natural textures and patterns are what makes Swedish style unique. Here, the bedroom sticks with the color scheme of the home. Natural woven carpets, gray walls and linen drapes are a must. If you want to achieve the Swedish look, keep your design unfussy and straightforward.
