my scandinavian home: A lovely home and studio in Sweden's oldest town

A lovely home and studio in Sweden's oldest town

Wednesday, 8 July 2015

I love how there are places which hold special memories, don't you? Sweden's oldest town of Sigtuna, just outside Stockholm is one of those for me. Not only did I visit one of my best friends there when I was around 16 (skinny dipping in the lake at midnight was just one of the many antics), and her wonderful parents still live there but many of my friends grew up in the town too. I was therefore so excited to come across this lovely Sigtuna home and studio. I don't know the owners....it belongs to Rigette Klint, Brand Manager at beautiful online store Edblad and her family, but I immediately felt nostalgic seeing the exterior, and was delighted to see the inside was rather lovely too! Let's take a tour...

Such a lovely home. don't you think? I love that Rigette's style is so instinctive and doesn't following any particular track.

I'm in love with the rattan chair in the sitting room. You can pick the same one up here (in case you're wondering (I was, until last week!).

We're seeing that lovely blue of the table everywhere right now including on the walls of the home of a Swedish food blogger, and in this Danish apartment. So pretty!

If you're interested, you can read the full article and find out where many of the items in this home are from over at Elle Decoration. 

More fab Swedish homes from the Stockholm area include this idyllic cottage in the archipelago , an uber cool cabin with a boho touch and a calm white and grey apartment. I really love Stockholm and the surrounding archipelagos, living in the South it still remains a mystery to me but I'd to love to discover more (preferably by sail boat). How about you?

Have a lovely day!

PS is there a place which holds special memories for you? I'm intrigued to hear...
