Small space inspiration - from the home of a Swedish stylist

This morning was complete chaos for about 30 minutes and then after a blur of hats, scarves, helmets, and bikes, everyone had gone and it was just me, my coffee and the beautiful voice of Ane Brun - *sigh*. It's no secret that 'Hemnet' (Sweden's housing market in one place - I know) is as popular as Instagram and Pinterest among my friends and interior bloggers alike. But today is a little extra special as this Gothenburg home belongs to one of Stadshem's own stylists Joanna Bagge who is selling her fab apartment. The 68 m/square space has been decorated using a monochrome scheme with an interesting mix of wood panelling, grey marble, and brass - sort of Swedish country, meets urban cool. Crucially, Joanna has been incredibly smart in the way she's divided the space - perfect inspiration for anyone living in a small space. Let's take a tour...

Homeowner / stylist: Joanna Bagge / Kvart Interior. Photography: Jonas Berg. Stadshem.

I do love window room dividers (other examples seen here and here), they are such a clever way to slip in light to what would otherwise be a windowless room. I'm often wondering where I can divide rooms in my own home! Do you ever do that after seeing these posts?!

Other items I love in this home: hanging clothes rail and round-shaped clothes hanger, Hay cloche table lamp, white bed linen, Moroccan tiles (these are similar) 

You can keep up to date with Joanna's styling projects here and also visit her (amazing) shop here.

FYI - great news for those of you with children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, friends with children...! Smallable are offering up to 30% off selected autumn / winter items until 9th November at midnight!

Have a lovely day! 


  1. Beautiful!!! And I love Ane Brun too! :)

  2. Such a great use of space, it is a lovely home.

  3. I am also a fan of that room divider. I don't find myself thinking of dividing my rooms, but I am always thinking "... where can I stick a desk/home office??" She does that very well here.
