Retired Soldier Creates Her Dream Home in Sweden

In the small village of Svanvik on the western coast of Sweden, a family’s dream countryhome is finally nearing completion. The house, once a bit run-down, has been carefully restored by former cavalry officer Anna Stenberg, who served in the Swedish Armed Forces for 20 years, and her husband, Patric. After her military service, Anna, who had a strong interest in interiors and garden architecture, found the idea of taking a new direction in life increasingly appealing. She started to consider transforming her interest into something more than a hobby.

“I have always helped friends plan bathroom renovations and new kitchens and redecorated at home all the time, ever since I was young,” Anna says. “It was only when I dared to really think about the idea of changing profession and working with this on a daily basis that it became real. It was very difficult. I did not know if I could handle such a big leap or change workwise, although I knew that I wanted to.” And so her journey began.
