A Beautiful Stockholm Pad In Calming Green and Grey Tones

Why, hello there! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I'm not sure what's happened to the Swedish summer - it seems to have disappeared!! We've all retreated from the bathing platforms back into our homes and spending summer holiday days (it's not unusual to take up to 4 weeks off and 'staycate' here) cooking, reading and meeting friends for a 'fika' (coffee and a cake) - which, thinking about it, doesn't sound so bad! Some of my friends have actually shut down their summer cottages for the week and reappeared in the city. In honour of the occasion, I thought it would be nice to share a beautiful, calm turn-of-the-century Stockholm apartment with you! Located a stone's throw from Mariatorget ('Maria Square') in the relaxed Södermalm district, Emilie and Fredrik Camén have decorated their living space in calming, earthy tones of green and grey. I particularly love the kitchen, it may be small, but it makes up for it in style and ceiling height! Enjoy the tour! 

What a difference the William Morris wallpaper makes in the hallway! I love the way it matches the kitchen cabinets.

Is there anything that stands out to you about this home?

Incidentally, the word on the street is that Emilie and Fredrick have since moved - and their new place has also been captured by Jonas Gustavsson and Charlotte Frey Svidén. I can't wait to share their new home with you next week - keep your eyes peeled! 

In the meantime, do you fancy taking a nose around a few other Stockholm homes today? 

Wishing you a great start to the week! Hope you're having better weather than us!

  1. The prettiest entry door I have every seen, just beautiful. But what really caught my attention is the height of the molding in the living/dining area. Is that original to this type of apartments? I have never seen them that tall but i really looks great, obviously the space can take it. Lovely apartment.

    1. Hi Miruska,

      Do you mean the baseboard? Neither seems unusual to me but if it the baseboard you had in mind, there is a trick how to inexpensively imitate such tall baseboards: imagine that you already have a baseboard in your living room but it is only 2 inches tall (like mine). Instead of ripping it out and installing a truly tall baseboard, you can keep the existing one and then install only a narrow decorative molding, say, 5 inches above the existing one. Then you paint everything in white (i.e. the original baseboard, the 5" space in between as well as the narrow molding) and it will create the illusion of having really tall baseboard at a fraction of the cost.

    2. Thanks Alena! Yeah, I meant baseboards (couldn't think of what they were called :-)). I've seen some really tall ones but this one seems unusually tall to me. That's a great trick, thanks for sharing.
