my scandinavian home: A Swedish home with inspiring ideas for tight spaces

A Swedish home with inspiring ideas for tight spaces

Friday, 7 October 2016

Hello Friday - eeeeee! We've got that Autumn vibe going on here in Malmö and I'm thinking lie-ins, long walks, mushroom picking and blackberry pie this weekend, how about you?! But we've still got a few hours before then and I've got a lovely home tour for you! The main reason I chose this Swedish apartment (apart from the fact that it has lovely wood clad walls and exposed beams of course) is because we all have area in our homes that are pretty tight - a sloped ceiling here, a narrow hallway there. And this home shows it doesn't have to be redundant space. A bespoke narrow staircase in the hallway has meant easy access to the loft space / attic which they've converted it onto a wonderful master bedroom. And simple rods have been placed at different heights in an awkward corner of the bedroom to create open clothes storage. Such an inspiring use of space don't you think?

I'm already thinking about our loft space which is so crammed, we can't even open the door without things falling out. What on earth would Marie Kondo say?! Perhaps it's time to do something about it.
Do you have a storage space in your home like this?! 

Get the look: dining room - the lovely Voliere (bird cage) light, I like these bentwood dining chairs bedroom - pick up curtain rods that adjust to any size at IKEA, the desk lamp is also IKEA. Source a beautiful vintage mirror here.

See a full tour of the home here (they've also managed to squeeze in a neat little reading nook in the kitchen!).

And a few links I love this weekend:

8 favourite netflix picks for cosy Saturday nights (thanks Si!).

I once showed Jessica De Ruiter's fabulous LA home here - and recently discovered more lovely pictures of it here. Her little girl is just adorable!

These armchairs, though.

Tour the inspiring studio of Stephanie Stamatis (I'd love to work here!).   

5 kids rooms inspired by the sea...

....and being by the ocean.

Happy Friday!



  1. Loooove this, your pictures are stunning! I'd love to live there! Sophie x

  2. Marie Kondo would say if it doesn't spark joy then thank it for it's use and say goodbye! Love the lofty bedroom! I did a major clear out last year and now I don't buy as much and my home is a lot less to clean up although I don't have a couple of cute little girls either! Ha! I would recommend a clear out to open you up to new possibilities! Good Luck! Tray-C

    1. You and Marie are so right Tray-C - infact we're on it this weekend. Packing bags to donate to charity feels so good, just got to get passed the chaos first!
