A beautiful apartment in a 1920s art deco build

Oj oj oj (as they say in Sweden)! The end of the week has really crept up on me. How great is that?! It's probably because I've been virtually padding around this Swedish space and sunning it up down under at a beautiful estate! I think it would be a shame not to complete the week with one final Scandinavian inspired Australian home tour, don't you? Designed, styled and decorated by Lynda Gardener (also the brains behind yesterday's barn conversion and that estate - yup, she's talented), The Apartment is a boutique rental accommodation in Melbourne's St Kilda. It's located on the third floor of a wonderful 1920s art deco building and has been styled in one off pieces, pure french linens, toasty warm blankets, hand crocheted rugs and vintage oil paintings. It sounds like one of those places where you can check out anytime you like but will never want to leave....(eh hem)....

That 1920's building is just incredible?! I love how Lynda's used so many natural textures too, it all looks so warm and inviting.

Could you see yourself staying here? 

Get the look from this lovely apartment:  sitting room - this rug is similar, source lovely vintage portraits here. Chunky crochet blanket. Kitchen: macrame plant hanger, I love this bamboo light shade. Bedroom - reindeer skin, stonewashed linen striped duvet cover. Bathroom - H&M used to sell this shower curtain - I've been looking around on the web for a similar one but no luck yet - any tips?

Have you got any great plans for the weekend? We're having a little birthday party for my daughter who turned 6 this week - so much fun (will need a glass of this to recover though - and while on the topic, how pretty are these simple DIY ice cubes, perfect for the weekend?)!

Have a wonderful couple of days and see you Monday!

PS The nominations are now open for Elle Decoration Sweden's interior blogger of the year award here, I'd be so happy if you feel My Scandinavian Home deserves to be in the running!
