Wallpaper, Stainless-steel and a Sunny balcony in a Swedish Home

Why, hello there! A new dawn, a new day, a new week! Although, I'm still enjoying looking back at last week's posts and reading your comments about allotment cottages - thank you for sharing your stories! Plus, I'm really curious to know if you were tempted to snap up the photographer's cabin in the woods? I'm still dreaming about it! Although today, it's back to the city and this wonderful apartment in Gothenburg. 

It was owned many moons ago (2015) by Johanna Bradford - who installed a stainless-steel kitchen and Pimpernel William Morris wallpaper (see the tour here and take a look inside her current home here). Despite having many different owners since, these elements have remained - and rightly so, they're beautiful! Elsewhere in the home, the latest owners have added their own personal stamp with an array of funky furniture in the sitting room against a backdrop of white, as well as new wallpaper in the bedroom. I hope you feel inspired by the tour! 

Here's the floor plan in case yo'd like to get an idea of the layout: 

It's no secret that vintage glass cabinets are hugely popular right now - but I have to say, I particularly love the idea of having one in the bathroom. After all, bathrooms are expensive to renovate and therefore it's important to go for a fresh, timeless look - which is also in danger of looking sterile. Adding a vintage item in the form of a chair or cabinet does wonders to add warmth and soul to the space. And in this case extra storage too! 

Also, anyone else thinking how lovely it would be to sit in that sunny spot on the balcony with a cup of coffee today? 

Sharing a few more spaces to feel inspired by this fine day: 

Have a great start to the week!

  1. Do you perhaps have the floorplan of this magnificent place? That would be awesome..

    1. I've found it, now added! :) / Niki

  2. Love your blog and all cabins, cottages and appartements which are passing by. Do you know why William Morris wallpaper is still so popular? I also liked the christmas decoration blogs. And your Malmo, special and other leisure tips.

    1. Thank you! I believe there has always been a connection with well loved Carl Larsson - whose home was an icon of the arts and crafts movement. He and his wife Karin were familiar with William Morris. William Morris as well as other bold wallpaper prints made a comeback recently and have maintained their popularity - especially in country homes, but you also see it in apartments like this one / Niki

    2. Thank you for reply. I had to look up Carl Larsson but now I recognize his paintings. He had a colourful home. I love the Morris wallpaper used on one wall the kitchens on your blog. Perhaps I'll try this at home.
