A Warm, Bright and Cosy Swedish Home

It's Friday! Time to hang up your work hat, pull up a seat and sip coffee... or something stronger, and indulge in a little Swedish interior inspiration. 

Today that comes in the form of a warm and inviting apartment in Mösebacke, Gothenburg that's full of art, playful patterns and splashes of colour that breathe life and personality into the living space. In the sitting room, a traditional masonry oven adds a toasty feel in Autumn, while come summer the windows can be thrown over to allow the buzz of city life float in. 

Note the antique Swedish 'kökssoffa' (kitchen sofa) - also seen in last Friday's home tour, which adds a cosy spot at the table, but also plenty of storage too! But also keep an eye out for modern finds such as a stool / side table made from 100% recycled plastic. All in all, a lovely, personal space that's full of a wonderful golden light! Välkommen! 

Really loved many elements about this apartment. But I think what especially stood out was the yellow heart themed wallpaper in the bedroom, I've never seen that before! 

Did anything catch your eye? 

This is a quick post from me as I've just arrived on Lofoten in Northern Norway and am sitting in the klatrekafeen - a little cafe by the water to write this post - I'll share a picture in my instagram stories so you can see what I mean. It's been a lifelong dream of mine to visit this spectacular part of the world in the Arctic! 

I've loved reading all your comments as always - and promise to respond soon. Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts and observations, it means a lot! 

Wishing you all a really fantastic and relaxing weekend - see you Monday!

  1. Warm and colourful- love it!

  2. With such a neutral base, the small splashes of color offer a wonderful pop here and there. Oh and that settee' !

  3. I always love seeing the tall and deep windows in Scandinavian homes that are so great for bringing light into the home (and for growing plants). The light floors are also a favorite of mine. I adore the kitchen with its sofa seating; what a pretty feature! This home uses lovely splashes of color in a joyful way, and especially the wallpaper with yellow hearts!

  4. Love the kitchen and dining area. It's like you crawled into my brain and found out the look I like. :)

  5. So very cheerful and cozy. I love the kitchen, all of it.
