Small Scandinavian style apartment


This beautiful small (37 sqm) apartment found from Stadshem is styled in cosy Scandinavian style and despite the small space available everything needed for comfortable living has perfectly found its place: living room corner, bedroom, dining corner and storage. Lovely mix of different textiles and natural materials gives the apartment cosy feeling and since the colour palette is kept muted and neutral everything looks really nice and balanced together.

For more inspiration of how to decorate small spaces take a look here, here and here.

I love good IKEA hacks and this is certainly one of them! Two sets of IKEA VITTSJÖ nesting tables have turned into a minimalist storage shelf for living room and two bedside tables for bedroom. To change the look tables glass panel tops have been changes for tile ones – easy and affordable way to add some trendy marble or concrete looking materials into your space. New table tops are attached to place with adhesive pads that come with VITTSJÖ tables. Really easy!

My living room has got some little updates recently that have changed quite much how it looks. First, I finally decided on the picture wall arrangement so there is more than one frame hanging behind our sofa now. (I will dedicate a special post for it somewhere in the near future.) Second, I painted our round wooden coffee table white and it transformed the whole look of the room. We have wooden flooring, so there is still plenty of wood in our living room to add some warmth and I love how the white table goes with our white sofa. On the coffee table there are my new favorite ball vases from Swedish Cooee design – I really like their simple round form, matte colors and as a bonus they feel soft like velvet to touch! And one can never have too much candle holders – Nocto candlestick from Normann Copenhagen is a new addition to my collection.

This beautiful and cozy apartment belonging to Marie and Martin Anker Svensson was styled by Josefin Hååg and photographed by Kristofer Johnsson for Residence magazine. Love how welcoming and cozy it feels – Josefin has again done an amazing job with styling! It’s located in a new Biografen building in Stockholm, but looking those photos it feels so lived-in and has many layers of details that new homes sometimes lack. Just perfect. I wish I had an access to Residence magazine to see more.

Kitchen inspo and sleep regression

September 27, 2015

Blue kitchen, Thonet chairs
It’s been a little bit quiet over here lately. And I’m afraid it will be quiet also for some days to come. Little Oskar is having something that looks a lot like 4 months sleep regression – those of you who have kids probably know what it is… Basically, my good sleeper who slept 8 or 9 hours without waking and feeding (yes, I was lucky!!) has started to wake quite often at night and has trouble with going down to nap (and staying asleep) during daytime. So I’m pretty sleep deprived these days and my to do list is already really long! It doesn’t help that our home will be photographed for a local home decor magazine next week, so there is actually pretty many things I need to find time for.  Wish me luck! :)

This beautiful kitchen with dark blue cabinets is from a renovated weekend getaway in Australia found from Inside Out magazine. Love the combination of white, blue and wood and contrasting black Thonet chairs around the dining table.  Light grey Caravaggio pendant from Lightyears above the sink is a beautiful statement piece that stands out on white background.

I’m so happy when I discover some new beautiful blogs and lovely homes – this time it’s #lagerma blog written by talented Finnish lady Maiju. She has a really nice home, which by the way is on sale right now here. The beautiful monochrome kitchen of this apartment was the first thing that caught my eye: white cabinets with white subway tiles and black grout is always a winning combination for me and House Doctor’s Molecular pendant looks perfect in this room. There are so many lovely details in this apartment and I love the overall monochrome look.

Swedish housing company Blooc has released a new project called Patio and I really like the styling of these interiors. Large industrial indoor windows with black steel frames give so much character to the whole space and match perfectly with slim black legs of some furniture there. I spotted many thngs from IKEA Sinnerlig collection in this space, for example the cork coffee table, bamboo pendant lamps and also some smaller accessories.

I have shared another beautifully styled project of the same company previously here.

A lovely bedroom styled using white, cream and natural hues with lots of different textures. Love linen bedding, chunky knit pillow, combination of white and wood and green plants and IKEA Sinnerlig pendant. Gives me summer feeling despite approaching fall.
