Snapshots From A Charming Swedish Family Home

Hallå! It's been an early start for Per and I today as we needed to come up to the cottage to take some measurements for the kitchen renovation. It feels like the rest of Sweden are still asleep after yesterday's Valborg celebrations (more about this at the end of yesterday's post)! Perhaps we should all tread lightly in today's home tour, just in case?! The pretty home belongs to Emma Johansson, a freelance writer and photographer and the creative behind @whatdecoratesmyday, her sambo (live in partner) and two young children. Located in central Stockholm, the living space is a beautiful mix of vintage classics, antiques and contemporary items - and plants and flowers are never far away. Välkommen in!

A Söderhamn sofa from IKEA has been covered in a Bemz loose fit white linen cover for a relaxed touch. I know many panic at the thought of a white cover with children around, but the beauty of removable covers is that they can just be thrown in the wash. I bet that fluffy brown rug feels so cosy under foot too, don't you?! 

Love the climbing plant, it really adds to the space (see my guide here) -mind you with those windows to play with..... 

I wish I had a bigger picture of Emma's room as it looks so pretty! But just from this snapshot you can at least get an idea of the details - which include a Natalia rattan headboard, little antique side table  (customised with a concrete surface) and a cosy dark grey wall. 

The children's room is equally charming - from the vintage cast iron bed* and moroccan carpet (this is a great source*) to the wallpaper (by Hanna Wendelbo) and little alcove. How I would have loved this room as a child, how about you?!

Although these are all slightly more 'pulled-in' images, I hope you can still get a sense of the beauty of Emma's home - and get some ideas for your own home!

Right (*slaps thighs*), I'd better get on with that kitchen measuring - in the meantime, I'll love you and leave you with these beautiful homes:

Oh so lovely, don't you think?

Ha det så fint!

  1. That sleeping nook with the wallpaper is stunning. I wish I had that now, let alone when I was a kid.

    1. It's wonderful!! I love that she's used a different wallpaper inside the nook :)
