Finding your dream house

Buying a house can be a difficult decision as there are so many different types of house. Recently, I’ve desired a house more and more, and have become tired of the city for each year that goes by. My ultimate dream is to be an architect and design a house exactly as I would want it. We can play with the idea of building a house to meet our exact needs and wants. What would your dream house look like?

Here is a short guide to some of Sweden’s most popular house designs:

Classic Swedish House




Details are important in classical houses. Antiques are best shown on the ground floor. And the most important thing is an open fireplace, preferably in every room :)

Modern houses

When it comes to the modern styles, clean and simple lines are a must. Keep your decor to a minimalistic style.

Dream house by the ocean

Living by the sea is surely something most people dream about. Marine colours and materials are important here for your decor, preferably with a clean white background. However the best background is of course the ocean itself. Just think of opening a door and walking a few metres down to the beach :)


My ultimate dream house is a combination of the classic and beach house AND of course, with tower. I’ve been obsessed with Victorian villas with towers ever since I set foot on Styrsö island :)

What is your ultimate dream house?

Have a great day and never stop dreaming! :)
