A Swedish Apartment Fit for a Princess!

A little Monday morning dreaming for everyone today - and proof that you don't need to own an entire castle to live like a princess! This wonderful apartment in Djursholm, Stockholm county occupies the top two floors of a magnificent turn-of-the-century house. Think turret like rooms, incredible angles and architectural details as well as an incredible roof terrace looking out over the water. A dream indeed! 

What a peaceful terrace! I love that they have zoned it by including a dining area and also a pair of loungers. 

Note the rug - colourful, patterned kilim floor coverings* have made a major comeback recently and add so much warmth to a space. 

The dining area is a mix of styles with an antique table, vintage Thonet chairs* upholstered in Svenskt Tenn fabric, contemporary art photography and an iconic PH5 pendant lamp*

More Svenskt Tenn fabric designed by Josef Frank, can be seen on the sofa. And again a great mix of furniture from different eras can be seen in this downstairs sitting room. 

A rough stone wall finish and wood beams add a fairytale touch to the upper sitting room. Notice the art. So many, are afraid to put up pictures as they fear getting it 'wrong' but really there are no rules and it's way better to just whack something up that you love rather than have an empty wall!

The bedroom is bathed in light from two directions and is also blessed with a towering ceiling and wood beams. A larger mirror also reflects the light. 

I could live here in a heartbeat, how about you? I have a feeling it's a little out of our league budget-wise and also there's the small question of it being 600 km North from where we live, but hey, a girl can dream, right? See more pictures and find out more about this apartment over at Wrede

Would you like to see some other properties with sloped ceilings today? Take a a peek at: 

I also dealt with angled ceilings in our bedroom when creating a wardrobe and also in our attic space, it's not easy but there are lots of great solutions out there to help maximise space! 

I hope you have a fabulous start to the week!

  1. This is the kind of home that I would be curious to see the inside of. I especially like the stone and brick walls.

  2. Beautiful bones with such a remarkable setting. The rooftop view is certainly special!

  3. The whole house is fabulous, and the round brown table is my favorite.
