A Swedish Apartment with a Great IKEA Hack - and a Small Pink Bedroom!

Today I'm taking you on a journey to an apartment dating back to 1900 in the boho district of Södermalm, Stockholm. What caught my eye about this wonderful Swedish space (apartment from the sky-high ceiling and big windows, of course) is a great IKEA hack, the choice of colours - and a cosy, small master bedroom - as well as various other factors! Ready to take a closer look? 

I love the placement of the dining table by the window. In a capital city outdoor space is limited if not non-existent - and I am already imagining the windows thrown open in summertime, giving the illusion of dining alfresco. And in winter, any tasks at the table can be carried out under the natural daylight. Perfect! 

THIS is the IKEA hack I was talking about. I have done exactly the same thing in Liv's bedroom. The IVAR cabinets are from IKEA and have been painted to match the wall and then wall-mounted. So simple and yet so lovely - plus they're nice and narrow so can fit just about any space. 

I love the print too - anyone have any idea who it's by / where it's from? 

A cosy sitting room area has been created further from the window. Notice how the gallery wall helps to create a separate zone. 

The master bedroom may be small - but it's also very cosy. I love how the windowsill doubles up as a bedside table on the far side and the pink hue helps to add a soft, romantic touch. 

A lovely space!

Oh, and it's currently for sale.... just saying! 

Is there anything that stands out to you about this home? Could you imagine going pink in your bedroom? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Lovely, peaceful home.I love all the ceiling lamps!

  2. The apartment is a marvelous, light-filled space. I especially love the cozy breakfast nook--with the corner cabinetry--I can see myself sipping my morning cup of tea there. Speaking of which, I want those blue mugs! :) I also like how they were able to fit in a large dining table for guests--I think its slim lines are what makes the space work.

    1. I was just thinking how interesting it is that they went with a really large dining table for such a small place (clearly enough for 1-2 people). They must have a lot of friends :-). It fits really well with the rest of the living and must also serve as their "working from home" space. Really like the feel of the living room.

    2. I had to go back through the pictures in search of the mugs - so well spotted, they're perfect tea size!
      The dining table is great - and yes, so big! You could keep all your stuff at one end while you eat (I speak for myself here as we always tend to collect piles of stuff!).

    3. For sure! Right now I am also working at my dining room table but it's smaller and there is no space for eating. I am sick of eating at the coffee table :-)

    4. We keep the extra leaf in our table all the time--one end is for working and the other is for eating. Sounds like using the dining area as a work station is a common theme! I DO try to de-clutter periodically but it never stays that way for long.

    5. Yeah me too, but it's a losing battle. To make it worse, my table is round too (not great for work). I am hoping we will be able to start going to work soon as I really miss it (I never thought I would say that) :-)

  3. Here is the nice prints' resource:

  4. This seems like quite a small apartment, yet the large table (and some large artwork) gives the illusion of space. Also, they carry that lovely pink hue through the different spaces - on walls, cushions and plates. Lovely!
