A Swedish Home That Will Sooth Your Soul!

Have you seen the 'calm app' which encourages you to stop what you're doing for 15 seconds and listen to the sound of rain drops? The aim is to make you feel relaxed through mindfulness (but apparently people are getting stressed out from all the ads they've been sharing, which does make me chuckle!). Either way, when I find apartments like this one I get my own little dose of mid week calm - do you find this too? I'm not sure if it's the soothing grey walls, the way the light falls or the soft, natural textures in the form of wood, rattan, leather and linen - but there's something beautiful about this space high up in the roof tops of Gothenburg. I'll leave you to enjoy the tour i lugn och ro (in peace and quiet)!

... and relax!

I love that it has a little balcony looking out over the inner garden. Communal gardens like these are really common in Swedish apartment blocks. They're usually divided into unofficial zones which includes  somewhere to store bikes, a barbecue spot and a children's play area. The apartment I lived in before also had a communal vegetable patch - so lovely!

Is there anything that stood out to you?

If you're looking to create a calm oasis in your home too - here's our guide to some of the pieces:


1. IKEA Stockholm 2017 cabinet  (where not sold, Marte Storage Cabinet
is a great alternative).
2. Object Blanc no 26 - Atelier CPH
3. Slit Table
4. Gubi Semi Pendant - Dia.60
5. Filton Coffee Table
6. CH23 Side Chair
7. Nicoline A. Milton - Adoray
8. STOCKHOLM 2017 Tray
9. Glo-Ball S1 Suspension Lamp
10. Cutter Bench 120

More Swedish homes in the archives include the wonderful home of a food blogger (check out the blue walls!),  the charming home of a designer and a vintage inspired home full of soul.

I'm just doing the final prep on my office make-over. It's been a surprising amount of work - gah - (partly due to how much rubbish I managed to accumulate) but it's nearly there now and I'm really hoping to share the results tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Have a lovely evening!

  1. I LOVE the rabbit print in the nursery. Such a calm peace
    ful space all in.

  2. I think the chairs at the diningtable are the Oregan chairs by Habitat.

    1. And I think the cabinet is from the new Stockholm collection from IKEA.
      It is a lovely house.

    2. Thank you so much, very helpful - you're absolutely right about the cabinet, it was an error as I was trying to help people global (sadly they don't sell the Stockholm cabinet in US etc). Have now updated the post :)

  3. The loveliest thing that stood out to me, besides the wonderful stoves, was the wonderful colour of the front door.

    1. Ah yes - thank you pointing this out, isn't it lovely?!

  4. Te lamp in the living romm is not Glo-Ball, is it? It has a different, slightly less round shape. I have been eying Gregg form Foscarini for a while, but I really liked that one and would love to know which one it is.

      (Sorry about the typos. Was in a hurry to get to lunch...)

    2. Hmmm. Need to investigate this. Let me know if you find the right one and I'll update the post - likewise I'll let you know if I solve it! Enjoy your lunch!

    1. Do you mean in the get the look? If so, it's the Cutter bench by Skagerak. The actual bench in the home is by IKEA but not widely stocked globally sadly.

  6. The lamp might be Muuto Fluid. (We have one at home...)
    Thank you for your beautiful blog.

    1. Yes, I think you are right! I love Muuto, how did I miss that one? Thank you so much.

  7. So pretty and calm, except for the front door color. Can you tell me about the rug in the living room?

  8. To learn the principles of writing a research paper outline you need to study this page first.

  9. Hello! I just read this information and i can tell you that this article is useful. Thank you for sharing it.
