A Calm Swedish Home With Smart Hall Shoe Storage!

So far this week, I've shared home tours from Lisbon and South of France - so today I thought return to Scandinavia, with a peek inside an apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden! Styled by Emma Fischer, it's a light filled space filled with designer touches in natural tones. I've done my best to point out a few of the pieces, just in case you fancy doing a little shopping this weekend! 

A second room doubles up as both a dining room and home office. Mix and match chairs include a Panton chair and Bertoia side chair. A Formikami light by &tradition hangs over the table and a safari daybed serves as a window seat. 

A giant rice paper lamp from Hay makes a statement in the sitting room and the Line No.8 print* by Rebecca Hein can be seen on the back wall. 

Etsy is a great source for vintage maps

Making the most of a split level by adding shoe storage under the steps is genius! I wish we had a solution like this in our house (even so, certain members of our household's trainers would still need to be kept outside!). Could you also use a system like this in your home? 

I am checking on the source with Emma for a few other items too - give me a shout in the comments section if there is anything you're wondering about and I'll do my best to help! 

All in all, a lovely, calm home with which to finish off the week, do you agree? 

Take a scroll through the Storage archive to feel inspired by other smart ideas this weekend. 

And that, friends, is all from me this week. Do you have any plans? In our house we'll be watching the woman's football (soccer!) world cup third and fourth place play-offs and final  -  the whole tournament has been amazing. I love how much the sport has grown in the past few years! Have you been following along too? 

Per and I also need to finish off a budget bathroom make-over we've been working on. I can't wait to share the results with you soon! 

Trevlig helg!

  1. I wonder if there are retailers in the US for the many unique light fixtures shown in your beautiful tours.

    1. Don't know if there retailers in the US but check out Etsy - there are many options to choose from (unless it are pining for an original instead of a knock off).

  2. Love the curtains in the bedroom

  3. I think the shoe storage under the stairs is perfect. In most tiny houses, the owners usually incorporate drawers under stair in order to maximize the storage potential.

    Lovely apartment. Seeing the Panthella table lamp has rekindled my desire to own one and once, I was close to buying a knock-off on Amazon but the reviews deterred me from buying it. I think I am developing a table lamp fetish (there are so many lovely lamps out there but - fortunately for my bank account - I don't have enough places where to put them. But I am for multiple light sources in a room and at night, I usually have at least two lamps at different spots of my combined living/dining room on.

  4. The shoe storage idea is fabulous. I love inventive storage ideas.

  5. Hi ! What a beautiful ambiance ! I would love to know the brand of the fluffy rug. Thank you!
