The calm and collected home of a Swedish interiors stylist

It's always a pleasure to stumble across the home of a prop and interior stylist.  And this Stockholm space belonging to the talented Joanna Lavén and her husband David is no exception! The couple set about restoring the flat back to it's former glory - even peeling back layers of flooring to reveal beautiful original parquet floors. I love the light in these photos by Marcus Lawett - he has really captured the elegance of the space, which has been decorated throughout in grey tones and teak mid-century finds. The brass gives the home a distinct touch of fifties glam too, what a fabulous home!

Is this your kind of style?

There is something very cool, calm and collected about the space. I couldn't ever imagine feeling flustered if I lived here. 

Get the look - source beautiful teak mid-century furniture here or on auction sites such as e-bay and Live Auctioneers. All of these vintage drinks trolleys / bar carts are fab! This wall light is similar. Oven from Ilve. 2097 Chandelier by Flos. Painting over bed by Lennart Sand.

And if you're after a few sneaky peeks of Scandinavian stylists' homes how about the stunning Danish home of Nathalie Schwer, the lovely home of Dorthe Kvist and Sofia Jansson's delightful family home.

If it was Christmas inspiration you were after today, you might want to sit back and enjoy this archive or my latest pins! Or if that fails - how about this recipe for spiced mulled wine? Ooooo, now you're talking!

Have a lovely day!


  1. I simply adore this home. The kitchen is beautiful - as is the rest. As a side note, I've never seen a two-level mantel before. It's cool.

    1. I hadn't noticed that until you pointed it out Emily - it really is cool, love it!

  2. This really is the perfect harmony of older world meets modern touches. I love all the details in the woodwork and stove and feel like they're complimented by many of the furniture pieces. And I agree on the double mantel!


  3. Do you have any information about the rugs? Would love to know where they are from ... / Jette

  4. What a gorgeous apartment! I am in love with that couch in the first picture, so elegant!
