A Charming Apartment In Stockholm Where Past And Present Meet

Why, hello there! I hope you had a great weekend! I thought we'd kick off the week with a charming Stockholm home that's full of character and lovely vintage touches (I especially love the loo roll holder!). The space has been captured by Historiska Hem - an estate agent which prides itself on selling homes with a past. And I can totally understand why this one fits the bill. The apartment is housed in the historic Nederland Mindre 9, a property best known as the former home and studio of Swedish artist and sculptor Christian Eriksson. Dating back to the late 17th century, the house has been converted into a series of beautiful apartments where past and present go hand in hand. What a perfect opportunity for anyone looking for their own little slice of history in the heart of Stockholm! Ready to peek inside? 


I love how a narrow wall in the kitchen has been put to good use with a built-in plate-rack, painted the same colour as the cabinets - perfect for extra storage and adding to the cosy feel of the home, don't you think?




Owning a home with a Kakelugn (tiled masonry oven) is a bit of a dream of mine. This one appears to be in great working condition too! The entire 'oven' heats up and emits heat for hours on end, even after the fire dies. Oh, and they're pretty too! 


The bathroom is made up of so many lovely details - including a vintage cabinet. copper pipes, pretty floor tiles and a vintage loo roll holder. 

Sidenote: I am especially taken by the loo roll holder for the simple reason that no one in my family except me, is capable of taking the cardboard roll off the holder once it's finished. They just put the new loo roll on top. I mean. Seriously! How hard can it be?  

I'm thinking if I had one of these bad boys with space for four, it wouldn't bother me so much! What do you reckon? 

While we're on the subject, my Mother-in-law has a vintage loo roll holder in her bathroom at the summer cottage. It has a little built-in drawer and I recently found out that in the olden days, it was used to store a match box.... make of that what you will! 


What a magnificent entrance! 


I love the outdoor space too. You see this outdoor furniture a lot in Sweden, it's made by a classic Swedish brand Grythyttan (just in case you're looking for new outdoor furniture this Autumn / winter). I shared a whole load of 'cosy' outdoor inspiration a few weeks ago (in case you missed it). 

Is there anything that stood out to you about this lovely home? 

Fancy taking a peek inside a few other Stockholm homes today? Here are a few of my faves: 


Wishing you a fabulous start to the week friends!

  1. Scandinavian homes have such lovely brightness. The use of the kitchen wall was terrific. Artful storage.

  2. Yes, the mysterious inability to change a loo roll. Which is why I don't have a holder. But still I seem to be the only person who knows how to put the empty cylinder into the recycling. It is a wonder to me.

  4. Lovely!
    As to the match drawer, growing up, we all knew what the match book & saucer was for :)
    Light one if you stink up the bathroom...yes, sulfur does immediately cut down on stinky smells ! :)
    I found a beautiful little dogwood decorated ceramic bowl complete with an upright spot to hold a book of matches....better than a over powering spray any day :)
    Keep it from the little ones though.

  5. This home is so appealing. I kept scrolling over and over. The windows and ceiling in the entry space (and the floor) are just so special. Is it appropriate to call the home “darling”? Not too previous, but just can’t take my eyes off the screen!
