An Idyllic Swedish Apartment In A Hidden Courtyard

I'm working from a little cafe by the sea this morning and the water is sparkling like diamonds. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to feel the warmth of the sun on my skin again! Spring is also in the air in this idyllic little apartment in Haga, Gothenburg. The wooden house is over 160 years old and still bears many original features including two lovely tiled stoves, wood floorboards and architraving. I particularly love the idea of sitting at the table by the window and looking out over the picturesque courtyard with a coffee right now, how about you?! 

I really like the idea of placing a shelf across the middle of a window for plants. I might do this in our summer cottage kitchen! Have you done this anywhere in your home? 

The wooden cabinet adds a lovely romantic touch to the bedroom. It's almost worth decluttering the wardrobe so you could down size to a unit like this - or perhaps create an overflow somewhere else in the home (Marie Kondo need never know!). 

This solar system mobile seem to be popping up everywhere right now. Are you a fan? If so - you'll be happy to hear it's available here*

How pretty is this courtyard? Just outside the muse gates are a load of little cafes, restaurants and boutique shops. 

I think this is my dream 'city' apartment. It's like a total oasis and just so pretty and full of light. I've always dreamed of living in a London Mews - but perhaps this is the way to go?! Slight problem with space - with one bedroom. Hmmm. Is it OK to an acquire a 'mammas escape'?! Perhaps we could do a time share?! 

Could you imagine living here too?! 

Ha det så bra! 


PS I've teamed up with a small local family run Malmö design firm to offer your the chance to win two lovely wool trivets over on instagram today

    1. I love this one too, it's so dreamy!

  3. Very pleasant, pretty home! Love the bedding. Where is it from?

    1. I'm not sure unfortunately - I'll have a dig around and come back to you if I find out more about it!

  4. I am sure Sage & Clare in Oz have this bedding colorway and design in their recently released Terra Collection. It’s so pretty . Love this home too.
