A delightful family home in Stockholm

Well hello! As Monday mornings go, this has to be one of my better ones. I'm working from my sisters terrace which has the most incredible vistas over the Mallorcan Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. Admittedly it's a bit bright and I can barely see my screen - but, you can't have it all right?!  We're heading home tomorrow - boooo! But it's not all bad, since Sweden has some hidden gems of its own. Take this apartment in Södermalm Stockholm from the 1900s for example. The 127 square metre (1367 square feet) home belongs to Lina Fall, owner of children's clothes, toys and interior web shop Cleo et Lily, partner Fredrik and their children Cleo and Floyd. When the couple bought the space it was dark and dingy and they set about transforming into a bright and vibrant family home full of scandinavian design classics, mid-century finds, Morrocan treasures and the odd vintage find. Enjoy!

Oh how I love this home - I've got a serious case of furniture envy! How about you?

Here are a few items I know and love: sitting room - Flos 265 wall lamp, Beni Ourain rug, sofa from here, search for Safari chairs at auction (I also like this black version), safari daybed, white leather pouffe, coffee table from here, C print is out of stock by the limited edition G version is still available here, this bar cart is similar. Dining room - bistro style chairs (if you'd like to be a bit different, I love this chair!). Children's bedroom - Teepee, Eye Eye print,  check out Lina's shop for other lovely things for children's bedrooms.

Is there anything that catches your eye?

These lovely pictures were taken by photographer Magadalena Björnsdotter who always seems to find the most beautiful locations (such as Calligrapher Ylva Skarp's country home, and this charming Skånegård - which I also included in my book Modern Pastoral)  - she also has the most fabulous house herself! See the tour here.

Hope you have a wonderful start to the week!

PS If you're coming to Mallorca you must get in touch with my sister Charlie - she's lived here 12 years and can help you find the most fantastic finca or townhouse to rent and advise on all the islands hidden secrets - and there are many if you know where to look!
