A lovely, laid-back home in Brooklyn

Hello FREDAG (friday), woooop! We're up at the family summer cottage on Sweden's Southwest coast and it's been pouring with rain all day. But sometimes don't you find that's totally OK? We've been playing cards, listening to music and baking a cake (not me - the man and our youngest - you might recall I'm taking a break from baking after a number of catastrophes!). There are some homes that look like the sun is shining even when it isn't though - and the apartment of Ana Fritsch is one of them. Ana lives with her husband and two daughters in a Brooklyn Brownstone from where she pens her lifestyle blog Lucky Penny and runs her shop.  The 74 metre square (800 square foot) apartment is blessed with high ceilings (seems to be a common theme this week!) and large windows which fill the space with light. Look closely and you'll also discovered layered rugs, quirky finds and patterned textiles - all of which add to the wonderful, laid-back vibe - enjoy!

Such a lovely home, don't you think?!

Those floors.....!

Get the look from Ana's home: sitting room - source a lovely kilim rug here and layer it with a jute rug, this grey armchair is similar, palms pillow, mustard pillow (similar), windson armchair. Bedroom - gold pig, ocean print, shibori dot quilt.

You can find out more about what Ana loves about her home here and see a full tour and interview over at the fabulous Glitter Guide.

I also really love the cheerful Brooklyn home of an artist,  the happy Brooklyn home of a Swedish expat and a calm Brooklyn home. Or for something a little Scandinavian (and different) - I never tire of a Swedish summer cottage!

Have a wonderful weekend!

PS OK rain, you can stop now....


  1. Thank god and you on your blog. I actually already worried because I haven't seen the blog some time. He's charming and refreshing and inspiring. big thank And enjoy the summer Vacation. Shai

    1. You're so funny! Thank you. I took a two week vacation - which was lovely but I'm happy to be back blogging again too 😊 So happy you enjoy the homes I share.

  2. Hi Elaine, thank you for taking the time to comment, it's always wonderful to hear different views. Someone else pointed out the lack of coffee table over on Instagram and Ana responded that since the apartment is relatively small, a table has been set-aside in order to make room for her two daughters to play while they are young :)

  3. Finally an apartment that looks like mine! :D I have the same color of wooden floors (that are not often pictured on blogs) and I have "troubles" getting inspired because most of the time blogs showcase apartments with washed/white/cleared floors. Since the floors are a pretty important surface it's not easy to go through the impression they make in the room. It's a detail but I really like the small plant pot on the fireplace. I was planning on painting my terracota pots for a while, I guess I found an idea here :) (glad to have you back by the way!)
