A Stockholm pad with a mix of vintage + designer pieces

Tuesday, 13 October 2015

Stockholm is great a city. It's a good 600 km from where I live so sadly I'm not there as much as I'd like to be. I think what I love about it is that you're never far from nature - whether in the form of forests or the beautiful archipelago on which it resides - have you been? Oscar Properties recently developed 'Biografen' or 'the cinema' house which has views over the entire city and beyond- imagine?! Marie and Martin Anker Svensson live in one of the apartments which has been beautifully captured by Kristofer Johnsson and styled by Josefin Hååg. Think grey, white and cognac, sheer curtains and a mix of vintage, designer and high street finds. Really, what's not to love?!

Photography: Kristofer Johnsson. Stylist: Josefin Hååg. Found via TDC with thanks.

What a great space, I could easily live here - how about you?!

A quick guide on where some of the items are from: Alex drawers in the kitchen, 7 series chair, Thonet 209 chair (15% off with MYSCAN), these (US) and this (Europe) vintage chopping boards are similar. Sheepskin throw. Vintage Beni Ourain rug. Safari chair.

This home featured in Residence magazine - a great tip for anyone who loves Scandinavian home inspiration.

More fab homes captured by Kristofer Johnsson include an elegant black and navy themed Swedish home, the incredible home of Ylva Skarp (one of my favourite home tours of all time!), and the home of a fashion stylist.

You can keep up to date with Swedish stylist Josefin's latest work on her blog here.

Have a lovely day!

A serene small space apartment in Sweden

Monday, 12 October 2015

Morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? We've been celebrating my youngest daughter's birthday - cue pancakes with melon, raspberries and chocolate for breakfast  mmmmm - a girl after my own heart! Today's home in Gothenburg, Sweden comes courtesy of Ahre. It's a masterclass in how to furnish and decorate a small studio apartment - complete with sitting room by day, bedroom by night, cosy kitchen with dining space and a balcony for that morning coffee all in 34 metres square! The plants and linens add to the overall calmness of the space. Let's take a tour...

Ahre, Stylist Johanna Bagge and Frida Schuler. Found via Tant Johanna with thanks.

I love the stark contrast of the dark wallpaper, desk and rug against the white walls and light wood floor. The black rug really grounds the sitting area and brings the space together.

Is there anything that stands out to you?

A note on where a few items are from: wicker chair, white linen bedding, Thonet 209 desk chair is similar (15% here off with MYSCAN), terracotta plant pots, this swing arm wall light is similar (and fab!). Paris print. Tom Dixon etch light in hall. I'm investigating the wallpaper - could it be William Morris?

More inspiration small space inspiration to be found in this archive (scroll passed the first).

And other inspiration from around the web today:

Loving the vibrant blue colours of this beautiful parakeet.

I like the calm feel of this bedroom with green bed linen (find similar here). A similar green can be seen on the walls of this serene Swedish space and Tant Johanna's bedroom. What a beautiful shade? 

The mornings are getting darker and the weather a little more foreboding here in Southern Sweden- but this GIF puts a positive light on it all - I can just imagine the scene: someone curled up reading a book or a couple playing cards. So cosy and romantic!

Have a lovely day!
