My friend's lovely Malmö home

A good friend of mine, and fellow Skåne flee market scourer is selling her beautiful 1902 'Sekelskifte' apartment in the centre of Malmö. It will go on the market later today but I was lucky enough to get a sneaky peek! Sofia and her family are so clever at finding items in antique fairs, flee markets and bargain basements and then blending them in with designer pieces. It helps that the apartment has beautiful bones and a fantastic traditional Kakelugn (tiled fireplace) too!

I spy: Many of the frames you see on the picture wall are from flee markets as are the high chair, the shipping crates and the demijohn (green bottle). The retro dining table in the kitchen is a 1950's Perstorp skiva. There are a few pieces of scandinavian design too such as the set of black Arne Jacobson Series 7 chairs around the dining table and the String shelves in the hall.

Such a pretty home. Anyone fancy moving to Malmö? The more the merrier!

  1. Love her house, even her books are in colour coordination.

  2. Wow! beautiful home!! if I could I live with my family there is really wonderful!


  3. I would buy it in a heartbeat, but I think it's out of my price range :) That apartment is a dream, I love all the little details like the way the magazines are stacked on the bookshelf, that metal tin with plants on the kitchen windowsill, and those antique crates in the hall for shoes. Beautiful space, I bet they'll miss it dearly!

  4. I would move in there in a heartbeat;-)

  5. whaaaat.....that apartment is gorgeous, how could they leave?!?! My favorite is the dining room I think, I love their color coordinated bookshelf!

  6. how exquisite. and, yes, the books! so lovely.

  7. That fireplace is talking to me - love it. Beautiful apartment...I would buy it if I could.

  8. That's it, I'm coming to Malmo! I love that wall of frames, so beautifully curated.

  9. Just tell me when and where and I'm there with my bags packed and ready to move in! I can never get over how Swedish houses always look so bright and inviting! The kitchen is definitely my favourite in this beauty!

  10. Beautiful space- I'm sure it will go fast.

  11. Keeping the design nice and open will allow you greater space to do things. Try to decorate your bedroom with functional furniture that will also enhance your environment.
