A Beautiful Swedish Home With Soul

Tjena! I hope you had a fabulous weekend? For anyone looking to move to Sweden, this bit of news might make the start of your week even more fabulous! Ellen Dixdotter, the brand director of Hope (one of my favourite Swedish clothing brands) and co-founder of Matateljén is selling her beautiful home in Gamla Enskede, South Stockholm. Not only do the subtle hues and mix of old and new create a feeling of total harmony, the textures and delightful details add a distinctly warm and personal vibe. And then there's the light. You might just want to put the kettle on for this tour! Enjoy!

Vintage gate-leg tables like these are in high demand and are hard to come by  - but so worth the hunt as they add instant character.

I'm fascinated by the idea of combining curtains in two different shades -  I wouldn't have thought of it, would you? But in this space it totally works! I also like how the rail extends across the full width of the room, so that the curtain can be pulled across to add softness to the corner of the dining room.

This side-cabinet is so pretty! I love how it serves equally well as open storage for a beautiful collection of earthenware, but also for wine and works of art!

I knew there was something missing from my new reading corner! How cosy!

There are so many adorable details in this corner. I'd love to know where the fun chairs are from - can anyone help?!

Here's what I did find though, in case you're looking for ideas: antler chair, cloud mobile*, pom poms, play kitchen (or this one for a budget version). 

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this home tour - it's really brightened up my Monday. How about you?

There are load more beautiful Swedish homes to explore in the archive here!

Have a great start to the week friends!
