An Elegant Swedish Farmhouse Conversion

Tjena! How are you today? Is it just me or are things kind of crazy right now?! Only one day to go before the weekend - PHEW, make mine a double! It's all good though, as my favourite month of the year is on our doorstep - YAY! Is December yours too? The other bit of good news: I've found the most fabulous apartment to share with you today. Formerly a railway station and large farmhouse, the magnificent late 19th century building in the centre of Gothenburg has been transformed into nine apartments all of which are characterised by beautiful exposed brick walls and beams and arched windows. I particularly love this apartment which has been styled by Swedish interior designer Emma Fischer (and will no doubt be out on the market soon - eeee - watch this space!). Take a fikapaus, put your feet up and enjoy!

Isn't it such a fantastic space?! I love the architecture, and the combination of old and new.

Could you imagine living here?! I certainly could. It helps that I'm a huge fan of gothenburg - we've spent many summers sailing around the gothenburg archipelego and it's one of my favourite places on earth! 

In case it's not possible to move to Gothenburg, Sweden right now (despite my recommendation!!) - you can still get the look in your home! Here's a guide....

1. FLOS Taccia Lamp
2. Atelier CPH Abstract Construction
3. H&M Washed Linen Bedspread
4. &Tradition Hoof Side Table
5. &Tradition Flowerpot Lamp
6. Pedrera Coffee Table
7. Paper Collective Essence of ballet 02
8. BS1 Floor Lamp with Round Base Matt black
9. Gubi Beetle Dining Chair
10. Menu Well Wtering Can

Oh, such beautiful things!!

Have a lovely day!

PS Super happy to see my Lagom book included in the Los Angeles Times stocking filler guide - I hope Father Christmas sees it! 


  1. Niki, have you any idea where those elegant chairs in the livingroom are from?

  2. Sadly not @Claudia, sorry! I hope someone else on here can help you.

  3. Hey Claudia, the chairs look like the YPPERLIG ones in gunnared grey from the collaboration between IKEA and Hay. Best regards, Nathalie
