The happy Brooklyn home of a Swedish expat

We step inside Swedish homes almost on a daily basis here on My Scandinavian Home blog - but what about when a Swede lives abroad? It would be hard to live in a new environment and not be influenced by the world around you (just like I've found with my own home). And it appears Livia Moore, the Tictail community manager feels the same. Livia moved to her small yet incredibly charming, Brownstone apartment in Brooklyn, New York from Stockholm, Sweden two years ago and it already feels very much like home. She told My Domaine: 'It has so much character. The entire building feels lived in, with memories and decades of family history'. Livia's home is a fabulous blend of mid-century, classics, vintage finds from all over the world and items by emerging designers who sell through Tictail. Textiles and large sash windows add an injection of colour and light to complete the happy vibe. Let's take a peek....

I love this space - all the textiles, plants, lovely nick nacks... it makes me happy just looking at it, how about you?!

Get the look from Livia's home: Kilim rug, source similar cushions here, the throw on the bed is by Slowdown Studio. Pick up a macrame wall hanging here.

You can see the full tour and interview over at My Domaine here. And keep up to date with Livia's latest projects on Instagram here.

I've been a huge fan of Brooklyn since staying there for a few days while writing my first book in 2015 and I've featured so many gorgeous homes from the area - including the home of a do it yourselfer, a cool monochrome space and the fab Brooklyn home and studio of a creative couple
- all beautiful and unique in their own way, don't you think?

Have a wonderful day!
