I love it when I stumble across an entirely unique home – full of interesting colours, furniture and details. And this is one of those. Looking at the decor, there are certain clues that tell us the owners love scouring antique and second-hand stores, books and nature. They’re also not afraid to break the rules, follow their heart and add playful, personal touches. And that’s what I love about this living space.
Third of white and grey? You’re going to love this tour!
In Stockholm space is of a premium and you can spend a fortune on even the minuscule of apartments. Swedes therefore get creative with the space they have. In this sitting room, a dummy wall has been put up in order to add more storage. I love the playful arch and also the tone-on-tone shades of pink.
A pair of antique Swedish armchairs and a stool offer a seat in the window for fika!
Old buildings are often blessed with thick stone walls which in turn mean extra wide windowsills. And with the windows opening outwards, they make the perfect place to display plants and other items!
A home office space occupies the corner of the room. Personally, I love the bright red lamp and how it pops against the earthy pink wall!
An antique chest-of-drawers has been fitted with a worktop so that it can double up as a kitchen island.
The dining room is made up of a traditional antique sofa and chairs.
A rail has been fitted to the children’s bunkbed in order to create space for clothes. My daughter Allie, who actually turns 13 tomorrow, would love this as she flat lays her clothes every evening!
An earthy green tone, plants and pictures of birds draws nature indoors – long after the leaves have fallen from the trees and the birds have migrated south for winter.
How lovely! Really unique and interesting. Just what I needed to see this Wednesday, how about you?
Are there any details that you loved in particular?
Take a peek inside other Scandinavian homes which have used plenty of colour:
I have had the pleasure of meeting two out of four of the above home-owners in person: Sofie and Sussie, and they were truly inspiring!
Happy Wednesday friends. I’ll be back on Friday with some really beautiful Autumn inspiration, hopefully see you then!
