5 space-saving ideas from a fab Swedish home

I hope you had a great weekend? It's all very well showing beautiful, spacious homes like this one and this one. But what about if you live in a teeny weeny one room / studio apartment (love that one)? Today's Swedish home is a fine example of how small can also be beautiful using a few clever space saving ideas.









Alvhem

5 take-away space-saving ideas from this home:
Raise the bed to create floor space (here they have used the extra space for a home office)
Use high shelving as storage (they have used shelving above the door in the hallway)
Save space with an extendable dining table
Source stack-able dining chairs which also look great like the Thonet 214 chairs (15% off with code MTSCAN).
Make the most of every square inch by adding cushions to a windowsill and using it as a place to sip coffee and flip through a magazine in the morning.

I spy Menu POV tea light holders on the wall. A VIPP binThonet chairs (15% off with code MYSCAN) and the Hay coffee table (10% off with code SCANDI-HOME). Doggy 'Tillsammans' prints.

Some exciting news too - please welcome my new sponsor DaWanda who fab sell fashion, accessories, home and vintage items.  I am all over this light, fine art print and paper cuckoo clock (Christmas pressie for my little girl's room?).

Have a lovely day!

    1. I actually have a set of these myself too - they're super popular in Sweden. I bought mine from the Swedish shop http://www.granit.se/

  10. The only thing I would add would be a sort of rail on the bunk bed because the idea of rolling over from a bunk bed and falling to the floor while I sleep makes me nervous :) Other than that this is a great example of how you don't need massive space to make a home cozy and spacious
