This Lovely 1930s Malmö Flat Could Be Yours!

I feel like I've been keeping very close to home lately on the blog - what with the beautiful house just over THE bridge in Copenhagen yesterday and another lovely Danish home just a short hop by sailboat on Friday. But today, I'm going even closer. This little number is situated right here in Malmö! In fact it's a stone's throw from my studio in the mysigt (cosy) Davidshall area. If I were to exchange my house for an apartment in the centre of town, this space could well be it (can you picture per getting nervous on the other side of town?!). It has everything on my list - from the 1930s period features, large windows, double doors leading from room to room, a beautiful parquet floor and a little balcony for morning coffees. Oh, and a load of little cafes, restaurants and boutiques just outside the door. What more could a girl want?! Ready to take a look around?

I think this cosy rug is from Tisca. I've actually ordered a similar one following my trip to Transylvania earlier this year (couldn't resist!). The classic shelves are by String (based right here in Malmö!).

These are the double 'spegeldörr' I was talking about - they are fairly common in old Swedish abodes and add such a wonderful element of grandeur to a space - don't you think?!

I'll never tire of dark blue walls - especially in the bedroom, how about you?! The Walton Ford print is from the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (I actually went to that exhibition and it was pretty amazing. Kicking myself now for not picking up a poster in the shop! Guh! (FYI this museum has the best shop E.V.E.R!). The bench - which understandably seems to be popping up in homes everywhere - is the Stockholm 2017 coffee table from IKEA.

What do you reckon, could you imagine living here too?

If you snap it up, let me know as you'll be just around the corner and we can go for a Swedish fika!

I'm so proud of my adopted home city - and have showed many Malmö home tours in the past. A few of my favourites include this magnificent pad (those tiled fireplaces!), a stunning family home (our daughters go to gymnastics together and I am always bowled over when I stop by Malin's home!) and an atmospheric home in dark tones (also lovely!).

If you're planning a visit, you might find my local Malmö guide helpful (and of course, you can always give me a shout in the comment section or by email if you need any tips!).

It's a rare double post day today. I'll be stopping by later to share a film about natural light that I made with VELUX. I hope you are going to like it. It's my Swedish debut - eeeek (we filmed in Swedish but with English subtitles)!

Until then, friends...

  1. I love this home. The use of colour is wonderful.

    1. Thank you for pointing out the colour - totally agree with you, love the bright pops!

  2. What I always admire about these spaces you post is that nobody is embarrassed by having ikea stuff in their house. In North America it is something you buy if you are a student or don't have a large budget but in Scandinavia it is common to mix ikea pieces with expensive lighting or shelving. Love this place, all that character! Made for me :-)

    1. Good comment. I love Ikea and I am a proud owner of an Ikea kitchen (which I put together to the last screw myself). So I never hesitate to say so (plus, I have not had a single issue with my kitchen in the 6+ years I have had it). In addition, I have a number of other individual items from Ikea (the Tronos boxes are perfect for my space-challenged entry).

    2. Yes, so true Miruska! IKEA is completely acceptable and makes a lot of sense. It's perfect for mixing with vintage and / or higher end pieces too! Alena - I completely get you!! Per and I built an IKEA kitchen by hand at the summer cottage (with the help of instructions, youtube and the occasional call to the IKEA helpline!!). We are so proud that we built it all by ourselves and it feels extra special every time we use it!!

    3. Ikea kitchen for the win! I have one as well and did indeed built all the cabinets and drawers myself (somebody installed it), and all my PAX closets. I actually love putting together ikea stuff. It is so calming and satisfying to me. Billy bookcases are a no brainer as well, but the sofas are a more difficult decision. I see Ikea sofas in these gorgeous Scandinavian places (Niki's included) that don't look out of place at all but in Canada for example, people are more reluctant to buy them. It is good to see these inspirations and have a bit of "permission" to do your thing :-)

  3. Beautiful apartment but I am not a fan of the green kitchen and the dark grout in the backsplash.
    I completely missed your post from Transylvania in the summer! Such beautiful photos in that post!!! I read with great interest about the Tisca rugs (they have some amazing colours) but even with free shipping, they are a tad too expensive (due to Canadian dollar being rather low). Anyhow, I really enjoyed that post. You can take the girl out of Europe but you can't take Europe out of the girl. ;-)

    1. I've got mixed feelings on the kitchen too, I have to say - but it kind of works in this space. Happy you've just discovered my Transylvania post. It was the most incredible trip! I now look at pieces made on a loom with new eyes! PS Tisca rugs are soooo beautiful and incredibly hardwearing, let's hope the Canadian dollar improves soon as the rugs are such a worthwhile investment - I'm waiting for my new one to arrive in a few weeks time!

  4. Very nice place !!
    I love the blue dark color in the bedroom !

    1. I've love the dark blue too, it makes the space so cosy! :)
