The boho home and atelier of a Swedish artist & florist

I'm kind of loving the 'home visits' by Lovely Life right now. The way they capture homes is so natural and raw - almost like the owner has been caught off guard. The latest home belongs to Swedish artist and florist Marie Emilsson, Mikke and three year old Loui in the Lovely Life playground of Varberg on Sweden's west coast. When it comes to decorating, Marie gets her inspiration from nature, auctions, travel and meeting other people. Flowers and foliage are brought in from the garden year round to keep the space looking fresh and seasonal (spot the rhubarb in a vase). Let's take a tour of Marie's lovely life...

What a lovely home, don't you think? Relaxed, unique and full of inspiration- black and white photos arranged on a gallery wall, painted and wallpapered accent walls, and many vintage finds. I also absolutely love the Loui's room with the owl wallpaper and ants painted on the floor - what a fab idea?!

One of Marie's biggest passions is her garden,  which you can see more of here

Could you live here? I certainly could! I'm often toying with the idea of moving out to the country, even just for a year or two. How about you? Do you live in the town or country?

The stylist Johanna Bradford and photographer Kristin Lagerkvist behind these pics are such a talented duo - see Johanna's former homes here and here and current home here and Kristin's home here. As well as the whimsical home of Sophia Bratt which they captured here. What a team?!

Have a lovely day! 

PS Thank you so much to Sarah (who I met at The Hive in Berlin) for featuring me on her fab blog yesterday!


  1. Love it. It`s so inspiring. My favorite detail are the painted ants on the floor.
    Thank you again so much for stopping by and answering all my questions.



    1. My pleasure Sarah, thanks for inviting me to be on your blog! I LOVE the ants too....

    2. My pleasure Sarah, thanks for inviting me to be on your blog! I LOVE the ants too....

  2. This is a wonderful, and interesting home. I am also amazed at what photographic 'stylists' feel they need to do in order to 'present' a home...the open ladder in front of a door here is a little outre.
    Wonderful home all the same!

  3. Amazing!love all the colour + textures! x
