In Småland, a region in southern Sweden, lies this beautiful historic home that has been beautifully renovated by interior stylist Lina Isaksson and her husband David. The home dates back to 1901 and lies on a small hill overlooking the village. Lina and David fell in love with the historic home with the little tower and when they got the opportunity to buy the home they took it with both hands.
They love the history of the house so they wanted to renovate but also stay true to the soul of the house. On the ground floor they removed hallways to create a direct connection between the kitchen and living rooms, and by adding double doors it immediately changed the light in the ground floor spaces. The kitchen is a combination of new elements and the old original kitchen. The new elements have been made in such a way that they blend perfectly with the old cabinets.
Interesting touch in this home is the American-style veranda, which is used frequently by the family. I absolutely adore this home, the combination inside with the old and new elements but also the architecture of the house. I mean, who wouldn’t want to have a little tower?
