A Harmonious Swedish Home With a Blend of Old and New

Never judge a book by its cover. Isn't that what they say? From the outside, this attractive three-floor property looks like a neat 70's Swedish terrace house but open the door and you'll quickly discover a home full of charm. It belongs to interior designer Marianne Wikner, co-founder of creative Studio Fabrikören. Marianne has carefully curated her home in Mariefred, West of Stockholm, with beautiful items - filling it with art, vintage finds, books and beautiful stoneware. Over the past twenty years it's been a wonderful family home for their now, grown up children, and a place for entertaining friends under the warm glow of candlelight. And now, it's time for them to discover pastures new (in US I think you say 'greener pastures') and with a heavy heart but a flutter of excitement, they've put it on the market. Malin Poppy Darcy Mörner was there to snap these pictures of her dear friends' home. 

"As an interior designer and stylist, I have a great interest in creating harmonious environments. Which of course, also applies to my own home".

"I keep a uniform style in the choice of materials and colours. I love the mix of old and new, green plants and materials from nature. Beautiful art is also important to me". 

"We have a wonderful backyard with glazed doors that blur the line between outside and inside. Here it is like a green oasis; its own world. When we're out here we like light fires and lanterns and enjoy the warm summer evenings."

"We bought our house nearly twenty years ago when our sons were 10 and 12 years old. We really love the house, but we're starting to long for something new. Plus, it's way too big for two people."


How lovely! I really appreciate how unique all the items are, I'd love to take a peek inside Marianne's little black book of flea markets, how about you?

We're heading home from Stockholm today, feeling a little weary after my niece's graduation party! As the Swedes say 'borta bra, hemma bäst' (to be away is nice, but being at home is the best!) and I'm looking forward to my own bed and also creating some inspiring blog posts for the week ahead - including the latest developments on our tiny house! 

Ha det fint!

  2. This home really surprised me with the dark, accent walls. So much cozier than a lot of the staged flats. I really like this one!!
