A traditional Swedish home with a modern touch

It always takes me such a long time to do anything on a Friday, it's as if my brain thinks it's already the weekend - do you find this?! This means I get very behind, and with my eye on the prize (I've been dreaming of a G+T - note: I keep a stock of chopped up lemon and lime in the freezer for this very occasion) - and I've got to get my act together if I'd like to finish in time for a sun downer! So, on with today's tour. And have I got a lovely home to share with you! This apartment caught my eye thanks to the way it combines old and new. Each room includes unique pieces of furniture and quirky touches which add a wonderful sense of character to the space. Enjoy!

I love all the period features and traditional touches (how great are those windows?) and also smaller touches like the built in shelf above the bed. 

Does anything catch your eye?

A couple of items I love: source a mid-century credenza / side table here, this and this hand woven cushion are similar. I'm a big fan of oil lamps   - I've got one in my window nook -  they let off a lovely light and last way longer than candles). For a modern version try the Patina oil lamp by Klong.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

PS If you have the time (it actually only takes a mo!), don't forget to enter the give-away to win a (fab) cushion and a copy of my new book!

    It is nice things.

  2. I am fascinated by the gleaming floors in the kitchen and in the hallway. I assume those are just lacquered wood planks in the kitchen (or painted in high gloss paint; but the hallways flooring is - I guess - VCT tiles. (Due to the green tiles, I assume it's not marble). I would love to know how the glossy look was achieved.

  3. amazing! I adore the large widows and the gorgeous light that gets through them. Beautiful, beautiful house.
