When we bought our summer house in Sweden the interiors were drastically different than they are today. Ugly plastic flooring covered most of the wood floors, and all the original windows had been replaced with modern windows not suitable for a house from the 1800′s.
In some rooms the windows had even been boarded shut. In short – depressing. Such was the case with our master bedroom.
It was used as a library and it looked like this….
The room was dark and the windows had been boarded up with paneling so you could not see the drop dead lake view right outside.
We tore out all shelving, added back windows and new paneling to create a peaceful cheerful all white room.

This summer the all white room got an update with a floral headboard DIY (later post) and my new Sunshine Deco Bedding that comes out this week.
It adds a punch of color while the entire rooms stays white.
It’s my all time favorite room to hang out in.
It’s so peaceful and happy.
It is filled with quirky vintage finds…
…such as the weird painting in the lady in a bathing suit.
…and the daisy lamps from the guest bedroom in the house we sold in Virginia last year.
The antique gold chandelier got vintage pink and orange shades.
The design is super simple, really not much in the room, which is the way I like it over there.
The floor has shag carpets and IKEA sheep hides.
A simple little corner.
The rooms are sparsely furnished which adds to the peaceful vibe.
Not a ton of stuff to clutter your brain.
The windows were added back on two of the walls so we can enjoy the amazing view. We bought old windows from a house nearby that was being torn down
Why on earth would someone have boarded this view up?
That I don’t understand, do you?
I wish I could take this room with me to LA…

But happy it’s always there waiting for us.
Do you have a favorite room in your home?
