Victorian Charm Meets Modern Scandinavian Style In A Lovely Bristol Home

This lovely Victorian terrace apartment in Bristol, England has been doing the blog rounds lately (it appeared on SF Girl By Bay and The Style Files) - and I can completely understand why! Currently under offer the beautiful property combines English Victorian charm with cool Scandi simplicity - as well as some very modern touches (loving the Crittall doors and windows!). Look out for the vintage touches and very cute dog who totally owns the space (love how one ear's up and the other's down!). I have to say, a wave of nostalgia washed over me as I looked through the pictures. Perhaps this is how our home would look if should we ever move back to old Blighty - here's hoping! I hope you feel as inspired by this charming space as I am! 

What do you think? Could you imagine living here?

I'm curious to know if the owners are from Scandinavia. The last time I raised this question was with this London home - and it turned out that the owner was very much British but had a passion for Nordic design. Stay tuned, in case I find out. What would you guess? 

Other British homes with a cool Scandinavian vibe: 

There's a big birthday coming up in the Brantmark household later this week, and I mean BIG. I'll be the crazy person sprinting around Malmö for the next two days (in case you're looking for me!). 

Hope your day is calmer than mine! See you tomorrow!

  1. I LOVE how they leave so much space, esp. in the living room (quite empty walls), so that the room can breathe! I aspire to that ideal in my home :)

  2. They do not seem to be Scandinavian:
    (got curious, so I did a quick internet search)

    1. Thanks for the link. That's a really nice article about the couple and their home. I especially like their perspective on reuse vs. new, particularly for the kitchen.

    2. Thanks for the link from me as well. I enjoyed reading the article.

  3. Really sweet, but do they only eat take out? That copper sink fitted onto the wooden chest would never work for all the pots and pans I wash. I like practicality.

  4. It's beautiful, I particularly love the fireplace and the whippie. Apparently, it is for sale and it can be yours for £350,000.

    Personally, I can't say that I would attracted to sitting on a bench at a table (even in a younger age - I like chairs with armrests. Looking at the kitchen, I, too, wonder how much cooking they do on a daily basis - there is very little storage (as much as the old farmhouse dresser aka kitchen cabinet is beautiful it may not be the most practical in terms of storage of pots and other kitchen necessities.
