A Lovely Turn-of-the-Century Stockholm Apartment

Hejsan! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! The sun is shining across Sweden today, and although the temperatures don't convey it, there's a distinct feeling spring is just around the corner (again!)! On Thursday I shared Marianne's beautiful SOFO, Stockholm apartment - and I was excited to discover this pad in an early 20th century building just down the road! 

While Swedish has long been associated with 'blonde' wood, I have seen a lot darker wood creep into homes lately - a trend that is set to continue. Another thing to look out for: despite being in the heart of the city, the owner has brought in lots of nature in the form of plants, wild bouquets, art and even a floral dress. landscape paintings also help to transport you to the countryside (did you know that simply looking at pictures of nature can help you unwind?), for a calming oasis in the heart of the city. 

I love this little pendant over the table. I wish I knew where it was from. If anyone has any tips please let me know and I will update this post with a link. 

A Swedish florist told me that she is receiving more and improve requests for 'wild' looking bouquets. Now that flowers and other foliage are starting to return to our gardens and outdoor spaces it's a perfect look to create. Think about mixing a variety of different shaped blooms: round, tall and thin etc and don't be afraid to mix in branches from raspberry bushes and other plants you might not have thought including in your bouquet. The more asymmetrical, the more natural the display - transporting you straight to the beauty of the great outdoors! 

No greenery around your inner-city home? Bring it indoors with botanical themed art! 

Displaying favourite items of clothing in the bedroom is a fast way to add colour, pattern and a touch of the new season to the room. 

Curious to see how this Stockholm apartment is laid out? Here's a floor plan courtesy of Historiska Hem

I hope this Swedish living space has given you a few ideas for your home - if only it's to create a wild bouquet or hang out a spring / summer dress in your bedroom today! 

Do you have a lot of plants and flowers around your home?

  1. Hi Niki, The Frama Geometric Circle pendant is similar to these two, in the kitchen and in the hall. But the main material isn't porcelain, but brass. May be these pendants are DIYs ?
    Best wishes, Dagmar

    1. Hi Dagmar, Brilliant, thanks so much for reminding me about the Drama one, it is indeed very similar - and a beautiful pendant! / Niki

  2. Easter decorating, apartment living, work from home living

    1. Thank you for these ideas, I'll definitely keep them in mind for future posts. / Niki

  3. Hey Niky, besides Frama, there are also similar lamps from Ferroluce. One is the Ferroluce Urban Shade Pendant C1522 or Ferroluce Retro Pendant C1617. Looks similar, but is not exactly this model. Maybe a self-made one? Best, Heidi

    1. Thank you so much Heidi, great tips and super helpful. / Niki

  4. These eat-in kitchens will forever be my favorites. Having a cup of coffee and breakfast in the morning at that table, while reading, would be so nice.

    1. I fancy eat-in-kitchens myself as well.

  5. Hola! Inspiración para espacios al aire libre! Gracias!!

  6. I noticed the pendant right away. I wonder if it has interesting shadows when lit. This apartment is so pretty and homey! I especially love the kitchen.

    1. I'm happy you like this too Kris! I'm no really curious to see how it looks when lit too! / Niki
