Traditional grandeur meets contemporary in a Swedish space

My jaw-dropped when I stumbled upon this Swedish apartment. The space is simply incredible.  Vintage wallpaper from times gone by, wooden wainscoting, parquet floor and period features serve as a striking back drop for contemporary furniture in the sitting room and dining room. The bedroom and office have been given a modern lease of life in light grey and white, bringing the space bang up to date. Could you imagine living somewhere like this?!

How lovely?!

It reminds me of a house I was looking at this morning which is being auctioned in Malmö next week. The property is incredible but the difference is, it's in major need of renovation. The question is - would you take on a project like this? I just don't know if it's for me or not! It's definitely temptin!

A couple of items I love from this home - söderhamn sofa, white silk chandelier, round vase and bentwood chair.

The snow's slowly melting away in the rain today - please don't go!  I'm dreaming of breakfast in this spot to raise my spirits- how wonderful? And just how beautiful is this vintage boucherouite rug

Have a wonderful day!

 PS loved reading your comments on pianos and musical instruments at home yesterday!
