A beautiful Swedish apartment in the attic

Tjohoo! I've got a feeling this is going to be a great weekend! Tomorrow I'm heading off on a road trip to Denmark with my Danish friend Daphne to shoot a wonderful home - so excited! I hope to be able to share it with you next week! Have you got any fun plans? Before we all get carried away by the fact that it's FRIDAY (woohoo!) I've got a really gem of a home to share with you. This lovely space is a lesson in creating a stunning light-filled home in the attic!  Measuring a mere 60 metres square (645 feet square)- what it lacks in size it makes up for in style. Look out for the clever space saving tricks such as the narrow table in the hallway, and the way they've used an open-plan design, dividing windows, white washed walls and light wood floors to lighten up the living space.

What a wonderful space, don't you think?

I love how the sofa is placed on the diagonal - something you don't always think about when planning a room (the desk in the Italian holiday home I featured yesterday was also placed in the same way - although there were a few fun comments here, asking why it wasn't facing out towards the fabulous view! I can't help thinking I'd only day-dream had it been facing outwards.Which way would you have it?).

Get the look: bedroom - source a beni ourain rug here, I love this lavender linen duvet cover, these wall lamps are similar. Dining area: the bowl is from the JASSA collection by IKEA.

Right, better get ready for that shoot tomorrow. Denmark here I come!

Have a wonderful weekend and see you Monday! 


  1. Great example of a small space well used and turned into a great home to live in. Regarding the position of the desk in the Italian holiday home, it is clear to me that no actual work will be done at that desk, with the light coming in from behind :-).

  2. Really nice and light space. Love the skylights​ without wich, otherwise, the flat would have been dark and gloomy. Still...645'²??? Could they have had a second room? My flat is less then this with two rooms.

  3. Have fun on your trip! BTW I love this space, so light and airy.

  4. I love this so much! Just gorgeous! Our family of seven lives in an 87m2 cottage so it's always nice to see other people living in small homes :D

  5. Beautiful! The Swedes really have an eye for the style, and despite not being the biggest place to live it sure has light and the feeling of space.

  6. Thank you for your analysis. It is new and different aspects I know before. Looking forward to reading more of your posts

  7. I’m really happy that I search you here what’s new with you for so you have all the fun of being here is so-so wonderful websites. Awesome contribution here is, but at times I can on my side with me over her wonderful apartment www.StoneFryingPans.com and search the same book. I would be very happy about your visit in my holiday homes and see you soon for me.

  8. Lovely! It's perfectly designed for the attic. It looks clean and refreshing. It doesn't feel like an attic, it feels more like home.
