a charming home in sweden


Danish born Leah lives with her son and husband in Vayu, a charming village in southern Sweden. She sells and restores vintage furniture, giving them new life with a fresh color of paint.


The vintage pieces are then installed in their own house, until a new owner has been found. In the living room (above) only the sofa is contemporary, Lea decorated the living room with vintage furniture from Sweden, Denmark and London. The chair, covered with a sheep skin, is designed in 1948 by Sonny Rysen. The red candle holder is traditionally used in Sweden during Christmas.


The dresser has been painted white and stores a collection of mismatched glasses and ancient pottery coming from all over the world.


The bench matches with the yellow doors.


The bedroom is predominantly white: only the small table and the bedspread are not white.
