Ulli's Beautiful, Relaxed Urban Family Home


In the mood for a wonderful, relaxed home today? Ulli's apartment in Stuttgart, Germany is the type of place you walk through the door and feel instantly at home, it just oozes warmth and character. Dating back to 1900, the building features original parquet wood floors, high ceilings and large windows which flood the space with warm pools of light. Huge glass doors in the kitchen open right back to let in the morning light and large bites of greenery, despite the urban location. But best of all, every room has a relaxed and lived in vibe, offering a perfect haven in the heart of the city, which Ulli, her husband Nils and their two daughters Smilla (5) and Ida (3) can kick back and be themselves. 

What an apartment! 

I love all the personal touches - especially in the children's bedrooms. And can we just take a moment to admire the ceiling in the master bedroom?

How nice would it be to sipping a coffee in Ulli's kitchen right now, looking out at the trees?

Is it just me or has it been one crazy week? Maybe we should all put our feet up just a little longer today and enjoy a few more home tours in the same, relaxed vein. Here are a few I love: 


I hope these beautiful spaces have put a little spring in your step this Wednesday!

A Beautiful Swedish Home with Staggeringly High Ceilings

We woke up to a magical mist here in Malmö - and I thought, today is a day for dreaming. And I was right. I have been dreaming about this beautiful Swedish apartment with staggeringly high ceilings, large spacious rooms and charming period features all morning! There's also something about the earthy green, grey and blue tones and the natural wood 'spegeldörr' doors which I love. The turn-of-the-century building is in the wonderful Haga district of Gothenburg - which means that whoever is lucky enough to snap it up (yep, it's for sale... *more dreaming*), will have little boutique shops and cafes right on their doorstep (one of which is famous for selling plate sized cinnamon buns - I kid you not!). If only the owners could leave the furniture behind. Ready for the tour? Step this way! 









What a beautiful apartment! I particularly like the living room and children's room. 

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

Take a peek at other incredible Swedish homes in this archive (if this pops up first, just scroll past!). 

Wishing you a lovely day friends!

A Cosy Apartment With a Warm Autumnal Vibe



Has Autumn arrived where you are? In southern Sweden there's a crispness in the air and the leaves are slowly starting to furl, a tinge of gold creeping across their surface. Time to get cosy and embrace the season (or I might just cry at the impending long Swedish winter!). To me, this means bringing wonderful earthy tones into the home in the form of rust, burnt amber, chestnut and auburn and layering up with soft cushions, rugs, and blankets. This morning I was scrolling through the Autumn #30dayhomelove challenge on instagram and immediately paused at Sabina's beautiful Berlin home. The tones perfectly capture the feel of the season. Think art, ceramics, pottery, cosy shag pile rugs and layers of textiles in warm shades of brown. Beautiful!

Anyone else feeling the lovely, warm Autumn vibe from Sabina's home? 

I included the links to some of the furniture and accessories under the pictures - but I can't resist highlighting a few of my favourites here! Firstly - did you see that Kahler Balustre lamp in dusty rose? I can think of several places I could put that in my own home! And I also love her Aura vase

Another thing I'm keen to talk about is the colourful twirly candles. They're starting to pop up everywhere right now, particularly in Danish homes! I've tracked them back to Hay design who are launching spiral, conical and twisted variations. If you love them as much as the Danes (and Sabina!) you can find your nearest dealer here

See more pictures of Sabina's cosy home over at @67quadrat.

This Pastel Infused Danish Home Is A Feast For the Eyes!


How about ending the week with a burst of colour and pattern - Danish style? Boy have I got a treat for you! Interior stylist and graphic designer Kamila Osinka's Copenhagen penthouse is full of drool worthy pastels as well as lush accents of electric blue, forest green and deep maroon. Better still, every room serves up a fresh new look  - from the vibrant pink dining room to the striped study and bedrooms with half-half walls - and yet there's still a lovely flow throughout. Oh, and keep a close eye on the furniture and details. The eclectic mix of vintage finds, DIY hacks, Danish lighting, ceramics and glassware are part of what makes this home so special! Welcome to Kamila's world!

A total Danish love fest! 

What a perfect way to complete the blog week. 

Kamila's home has put a real spring in my step - I hope it has lifted your spirits too. If you'd like to see more, take a peek at her instagram over at @kamila.osinka and website www.osinka.dk

An Idyllic Blue and White Swedish Cottage In The Countryside


Up for a little dreaming today? How about this proposal: quit your job, sell your house / give up your rental and swap it all for a beautiful 19th century house in the Swedish countryside. Love the water? Even better! This newly renovated cottage is in Onsala, Halland county - a few kilometres from the Kattegat sea. There's even a little harbour where you can moor your boat. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. The pretty white and red clapboard cottage has been impeccably renovated in shades of blue, white and light wood - in true Swedish style! I also love the blend of iconic Scandinavian pieces and antiques. Now it's just waiting for someone to come along and cherish it as much as the previous owners have. Could it be you? Or me? Or one of your friends?







Well, what do you think? Ready to make the move?

I can't tell you how tempted I am. Its a really beautiful part of the world too - not far from the Gothenburg Archipelagos

I couldn't resist including a picture of the laundry room. In Sweden the washing machine tends to be either in the basement, a separate laundry room or in the bathroom (whereas in the UK it's often in the kitchen). Where is the washing machine in your home? Despite the awkward basement room with its low ceilings and small window - the owners have managed to add a light, whimsical touch with linen curtains (try Grey Moose Atelier* for similar)! 

You can see more pictures and dream about this house here (in Swedish). 

Fancy taking a peek inside a few other white and blue homes today? 

Trend report: True blue, baby 2020 loves you (still proud of that heading!)
A soothing blue and white Copenhagen apartment (it's also available to rent via Airbnb!)

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday friends!
