A Light Family Home in a Historic Yellow Villa

We’re heading to Sweden, where we can tour a yellow wooden villa in the Swedish countryside that is now a beautiful family home. The sunny villa has been renovated in recent years after it had already been extended twice in previous years.

The extension in 1961, turned the modest Swedish house into a large home with spacious open-plan living spaces and four bedrooms. In 2015, the house was extended a second time with a spacious entrance hall and another bedroom.

The majority of the family home is decorated with light colors on the walls that are paired with bright color pops in furniture and decor. But the children’s rooms are decorated with beautiful wallpapers for a charming look.

The open-plan living room is divided into three areas. There is a cozy tv room at the back with a children’s play room next to it, a general sitting area in the center and a dining area.

The walls are painted in a calm beige shade which are paired with a beautiful herringbone parquet floor and bold color pops in the decor and furniture.

There are windows on two sides of the living room and it has access to the garden, which makes it a lovely light space that can be extended to the garden in the warmer months.
