Sorry Norway. Sweden is winning.
Sweden. Land of Bergmans, both Ingrid and Ingmar. Vikings. Land of Tall blonde athletic good-looking people. Birthpace of H&M… S&M…The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Land of Socialism…Kopimism…Muppet Chefs…Ice Hotels…Volvo…Ikea…

Know how I know you’re in Sweden? You have a giant reindeer pelt on your wall, and nothing else.
There are six of these one of a kind, I guess you could call them guest cottages at Treehotel, including the very bucket list-y Tree Sauna. They have names like “UFO” and “The Mirrorcube“. Here’s a quote from the owners;
“Treehotel was inspired by the film ”The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsen. It’s a tale of three men from the city who want to go back to their roots by building a tree house together. “The Tree Lover” is a philosophic story about the significance of trees for us human beings.”
Right there with ya Sweden. And breakfast is included.
My house isn’t a box, but I think this will still be a good place to jump off from. I should take this moment to address the fact that there have been hardly any house posts on this supposedly renovation inspired blog. That will change soon.

You’re welcome.
Here are some sexy old Volvos grazing in an obviously Swedish field. Swedes care about your safety. However, should you find yourself in an accident, help yourself to the Swedish healthcare system, which sounds dreamy if you dig that sort of thing.
If you’re gonna sell MaryKay, sell it Sweden style.
Sweden is totally good at music.
Here’s a little playlist. I stopped being able to remember things and focused more on trying to forget after 2010, so it’s kinda “oldie but goodie” ish
Swedish designers are something you’d like if you’re into awesome shit. Let’s go with Pia Wallen to represent them in their entirety because I want these slippers;
I have a crush on this blanket. So does everyone else. Heartbreaker.
