A Cosy Small Swedish Apartment With Earthy tones

It's back to the city for today's post - and a tour of a charming boho Swedish apartment. 

The cosy space measures a mere 49 square metres (527 square feet) but it's been kitted out for maximum comfort with a kitchen, small dining area, sitting room and bedroom.

As with all small spaces, flow of light is important, and wide doorways and open shelving allow natural light to leak into every corner and create an airy feel. But for me, what really steals the show are the use of rich tones, and earthy patterns, all of which make the space warm and inviting!  

I especially love the nook in the dining area - made from an antique bench - I'd happily sit there drinking coffee and chatting for hours! 

Enjoy the tour! 


The apartment building dates back to the 1940s - evidence of which can be seen in the kitchen cabinets, windows and windowsills. 



Plants, books, art and other treasures give the home a personal feel, while plenty of storage ensures everything else can be hidden away to avoid a cluttered feel. 


A green corduroy sofa, amber cushion and dusty pink cushion add a hint of colour to the sitting room, while a sculptured table and ceiling light add plenty of personality! 


Spider plants (seen hanging beside the window) remind me so much of my Dad! He used to love them and they'd be everywhere in our home - even the bathroom! Do you have a plant that makes you feel nostalgic? 


Such a lovely home. The more you look, the more details you discover. 

Is there anything that stood out to you?

I think that's it from me. It's 26 degrees celsius (78 F) in Sweden today, which is crazy, so even the badkruka (meaning swim pot, a Swedish word to describe someone that is wimpy about getting in cold water) in me might go for a swim. Watch this space! 

Have a wonderful weekend, thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. I had travelled to the East Coast, and have a jet lag. So I am not sure( I am in a bit of a haze), but wasn't this apartment featured recently. I remember scouring it thoroughly as its so nicely done being a small space. Love MSH, it changed me in so many ways. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

      I thought so too and it was featured in January.

    2. You're right--funny that I had forgotten this one. This time I noticed the teapots (I'm a tea lover so these speak to me!) and some of the rugs/wallhangings put me in mind of the southwest part of the USA.

    3. Thank you for pointing this out. I had completely missed this - no idea how! Usually there's a niggling familiarity at the back of my mind and I go back through the archives - this time? Nada!!! At least it's a lovely one, so worth seeing again!
