Victorian villa with luxurious blue details

Today’s decor crush is a beautiful Victorian era villa in Gävle, Sweden with the beautiful name of Solgård (Sun Garden). The classic interior is in sober blue and white with details from Asia. The thing I love the most is the chequered floor and of course the owner’s art studio. Just imagine creating a work of art in your own room, with just the mood as an audience and the wind as the only sound to be heard :)

If I lived in a country house it would definitely look like the one in this post. I am torn between living in the city and in the country. The ultimate solution is probably having a Victorian villa as a Summer house, and living in the city in the Winter.

Did you know?

In ancient Rome, a villa was originally a house built for the wealthy to retreat to in the Summer. There were apparently several kinds of villas. The ‘urbana’: A country dwelling within easy reach of a city and suitable for a short stay. The ‘rustica’: A farm house estate, where servants lived permanently to take care of the estate. And the ‘marittima’: A seaside villa, located on the coast.

What is your dream dwelling? In an apartment in town, or a villa in the country?

Have a great weekend, cuties!



Within interior design, I love the combination of old and new, a marriage of history and modernism, romanticism meeting minimalism. In addition, I have a burning passion for crispy silks, dark chocolate and long baths with a fragrance of lavender.
