my scandinavian home: A very cool Toronto apartment

A very cool Toronto apartment

Monday, 31 March 2014

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? Did you get a chance to enter the give-away to win the t'shirt soft bed linen yet? This fabulous Victorian Toronto apartment belongs to John Baker and Juli Daoust and is located directly above their beautiful shop Mjölk (meaning 'milk' in Swedish). -how's that for a commute?! You can definitely see John and Juli's love of all things Scandinavian and Japanese shining through and I also like the brown accents they've used throughout. I once featured their cottage on here which is equally beautiful but in a different way.

*sigh* such a perfect way to brighten up a Monday morning don't you think? Is there anything you love in particular about this space?

I'm all over that wall of dried wild flowers (could this image be from their shop?), I wonder if this can be re-created as a DIY project? It would be so fun for spring.

By the way, I came across a competition over at FinnStyle at the weekend asking people to choose which Marimekko pattern they like the most. They're now down to the final four and would love some help choosing the winner, one lucky participant could win a 100 dollar gift card for their efforts (please let it be me....or you...or me....!)

Have a lovely Monday!

PS Thank you to Miss Moss and Dwell for the inspiration.

  4. I love the bay windows, I've always wanted one. The ladder shelf next to the bed would be perfect for me too since I have way too much for a night stand :)

  5. That copper side table with all the skinny legs on it is awesome! Who says a table has to have 4 legs? Really loving that little nook for teatime also.

  6. I love to see a Toronto home here! I used to work just down the block from Mjolk- it is a great space. I think my favourite bit from their apartment is that spare lovely window seat/alcove. lovely.

  10. Hi! Just found your fantastic blog through Pinterest. The Toronto house is just amazing, and I really love that copper table. Hmm, I have a lovely sheet of copper upstairs, been waiting for the right project... Thanks for such a lovely blog - but did you have to make it so good? I've got stuff to do this afternoon, y'know! I'd far rather look at pics of gorgeous houses than tidy my own! :) Have a lovely day x

    1. awwww, thank you so much Lorna! Now you definitely have stuff to do...like making your own copper table (and send me a picture, I'd love to see it!!) - far more important than tidying (zzzzz). Have a lovely day yourself!
