Chestnut Tones In A Delightful Swedish Family Home

This picture was actually taken in Petra's parent's home in Gotland. They share the same love of rust and chestnut hues!
Happy Friday guys - we made it! Did anyone else find that there simply weren't enough hours in the day this week? I've had so much going on that my youngest actually asked "Mummy, are you listening or are you dreaming of unicorns again?" Ha! I think this is why I was so happy to discover Petra Gardefjord's refreshing portrayal of family life in Sundbyberg, Stockholm. Petra juggles being a Mamma to three adorable bairns (along with her husband), running Betón™, a brick and mortar and online shop and curating The Blóg where she shares business tips. On instagram Petra shares compelling daily snapshots of life at home - complete with toy-strewn floors, nappy lights and delightful lazy saturday mornings  - set against a backdrop of beautiful design. Such perfectly imperfect inspiration for the weekend!

Petra picked up this pair of chairs for 20 quid in a flea market - such a find!

In search of the perfect shoes for her toddler, Petra started to design and sew moccasins back in 2013 - and found the ultimate footware in the process. Today Betón stocks eco friendly moccasins and accessories for babies and toddlers as well as other unique items for women.

How lovely! I love the rust, chestnut and white colour palette - it's given me so much inspiration for my home. I hope Petra's charming apartment has inspired you too!

I'm thinking a visit to her shop is also in order - fingers crossed I find myself in Stockholm soon! How nice would it be to have a pair of those moccasins?

A little more family home inspiration to complete the week: all things bright and beautiful in a pared-back family home in Singapore, a striking and relaxed family home in Malmö, a lovely light-filled Swedish home.

Speaking of families, it's my daughter's 10th birthday today (can you believe it?!) so we've got lots of people coming over in a few hours time to celebrate. Hurry! And then maybe we'll unwind a little on our sail boat tomorrow - aaaa, nice!

 I hope you've got some fun plans too!

Trevlig helg!
