A magnificent Malmö pad which could be yours!

I do love to keep an eye an eye on the Swedish property market (as I'm sure you've noticed!). Occasionally a home will reappear and it's fascinating to see the difference in the way it's been decorated. This fabulous space is one of them. As soon as I spotted the turn-of-the-century apartment on Malmö estate agent site Bo-laget, I instantly recognised it. The magnificent ceilings, tremendous ceiling height, original parquet floor and kakelugn (Swedish masonry oven) were a total give-away! The previous owners went for a relaxed vibe with mid-century and vintage finds (see the tour here). The new owners have kept the space equally minimalist, ensuring the architecture and period features take centre-stage, yet the furniture has a more contemporary feel. And now it's time for someone else to move in!










This apartment is for sale through Bo-laget

Could it be you?! If so, welcome to Malmö! 

Oh how I would love to take on this place too. The things I would do!

A few pieces I know and love: Togo sofa, Bertoia diamond armchair, source a similar Beni Ourain rug, Hay tray table, Bertoia side chair.

I'm so proud of the level of creativity in my adopted home town and have featured many, many fabulous homes from this city here in Southern Sweden over the years. Here are 5 of my favourites:

The relaxed family home of an interior designer
A stunning Malmö home
The atmospheric house with an ethnic touch
An elegant Malmö home in calming green
My neighbour's beautiful home!

Is there a style you like in particular?

Have a lovely day!

PS Make sure you stop by and visit us here in Malmö for a long weekend at some point - it's a perfect day trip from Copenhagen too. Just in case you do, here's a quick guide. Part II coming soon!

Beautifully crafted furniture and accessories from Walden

In my mind nothing beats beautifully crafted wood when it comes to bringing warmth and texture to a home. That's why I was so happy to discover the new Austrian furniture brand Walden. Inspired by 'a deeply rooted urge and longing in us all for nature and authenticity', Walden captures the feeling of pure nature in the beds, bedtables and sideboards and accessories. Each piece is crafted with a clear conscience in terms of the process, materials and structure and designed to last for years without losing its natural beauty and functionality. We love that?! Here's a little inspiration from the beautiful Walden collection....

A Danish home is given a fresh, monochrome make-over

I remember when we were looking to move house here in Sweden and looked around a ton of homes (which you can imagine, I loved!).  Sometimes the apartments looked so far from my own style it was hard to imagine myself living there - it can be hard to create a vision of what it could look like, but anything is possible. This Danish apartment in Køge, South of Copenhagen, belongs to Louise Oest Larsen, her husband and little girl and is a perfect example of this. Once a fairly dated space (see the 'before' picture here), the apartment has been transformed into a truly wonderful, fresh and light-filled family home using a splash of white paint, design pieces, mid-century finds and a splash of sunny yellow (that door!). Let's take a peak...

Loving the graphical, monochrome look, how about you?

There are some really clever space saving solutions at work here - the white floors and walls immediately visually enlargen the apartment. Floor to ceiling shelves in the sitting room provide storage and display. And, although long and narrow, the couple have installed a built in bench in the kitchen to create a small dining nook.

There are so many pieces I know and love in this home: dining area: Eames DSW chairs, AJ floor lamp, Flos 265 wall lamp. Sitting room: Tom Dixon etch tea light holder, wall sconce candle holder, By Lassen Kubus candleholder, Lucky Boy Sunday fancy finger cushion, By Lassen Flow cushion. Kitchen: Tripp Trapp chair, Royal Copenhagen jug, letter mugs. Bedroom: wooden birds. Children's room: Sebra cot, House Doctor striped storage. Hallway: TRONES shoe storage, Muuto dots.

The Swedish artist behind the 'Creativity' print - Ylva Skarp has the most incredible home in Dalarna which I have shown previously shown here and here.

When we moved into our house there was some crazy stuff going on with colours - including blue walls and green ceilings. Since then we've painted the entire house white, lighten the floors and built an extra wall! What was your home like when you first bought / rented it?

Have a lovely day! 

PS could you paint your door a zesty yellow?

Monochrome and mid-century in lovely Swedish spaces

It's no secret there's an incredible amount of interior inspiration to be found on the websites of Swedish estate agents. Just enter Stadshem, Alvhem, Entrance, 55kvadrat, or Fantastic Frank into the My Scandinavian Home search box and you'll have an entire morning of beautiful homes to look at (obsessed, who me?!). One of my latest faves is the international real estate who specialise in high-end homes (a girls got to dream?!) but also some 'light' versions too.  Here are some examples of the spaces found in Eklund homes of late....monochrome, mid-century, designer, what's not to love?!








Eklund - via We are Scout with thanks
Beautiful! Look at that morning light in the bedroom?! Another duvet day option perhaps?!

A few items I know and love: Tulip table, Eames sidechairs (15% off right now!), Knoll diamond chair, Vee Speers print, Design House Stockholm work lamp, string shelving.

I'm in a little bit of a rush today as I've got lots of writing to do and I've promised the girls I would take them on an adventure this afternoon- go, go, GO!

Have a lovely day! And oh, back tomorrow with a lovely Swedish house tour! See you then!

The Moscow home with a cool scandi-vibe

Located in the Novoslobodskaja region in the heart of Moscow this fabulous apartment belongs to Harry Nuriev and fiancé Marya Kacharava. The creative duo own and run Crosby Studios, a resource for design concepts and creation for everything from architecture, interiors and furniture to websites, posters and books.  You'd be forgiven for thinking their apartment's in Scandinavia with it's monochrome scheme and touches of wood. The look is warmed by vibrant kilm rugs - which contrasts with the grey painted parquet floor. And the furniture is a beautiful blend of vintage, mid-century, retro and modern.  What a cool home?! Loving the vintage camera collection!

The tree stump side tables are a really great way to bring the outside in, plus they're practical and look fab too. If you're a landowner in the country - they're also free! If not you can always buy beautiful ones here

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Quick guide on items I know and love: kilim rug / Tulip table (or docksta for an inexpensive version)/ Eames DSW chairs (currently 15% off) / karlstad sofa / vintage cameras / retro stools.

I think this is the first home I've shown on here from Russia. However I have shown a ton of international homes from all over the world which you can find in this archive (skip past the first home as it's likely to be this one).

I'm heading Upstate this afternoon - so exciting! I'll miss the view I've had over the past couple of days, but looking forward to a whole load of new adventures - eeeeee!

Have a lovely day! 

PS I apologise in advance if the posts are published a little later than usual / I need to skip a day or too due to travel.

The Loft, Holland

Hello. I'm in virtual shop heaven this morning. Enter The Loft, an oh so beautiful 'shop' in Arnhem, Holland.  If there's one thing the owners love it's to see 'spaces work their magic on people', and work it's magic it does  Set in a former school the owners hand pick design furniture, art and accessories and piece them together in a forever changing apartment to allow you to see how they work in reality. All items are available for purchase. This isn't the first time we've seen this concept, I've previously featured The Apartment in Copenhagen and The Line in New York. Could this be the interior shopping of the future? If so I'm in, are you?!







All images except the final one Maartje Van Suijdam (shared with kind permission)

What a shop?! Amsterdam is already on my travel hit list but seeing stores like this make me want to get straight on a flight and visit Arnhem too, how about you?! (I'd stay at this guest house and also pop into this shop- see I've already got it planned!).

If you're lucky enough to be living or visiting Arnhem you can buy all the items you see in the Loft (if still available). Otherwise here's a quick guide: Hay Mags soft Sofa, Normann Copenhagen bell lamp, Z1 cotton light. Source wooden benches and stools at Lovely & Co.

For more fab Dutch home inspiration today you might want to take a look inside this fab Amsterdam apartment, a beautiful white home and this lovely holiday cottage which is actually available to rent.

Have a lovely day!

Do you live in a building with a cool history?

This beautiful Stockholm apartment is laid out over two floors of a former piano factory (sounds so romantic don't you think?). It's been completely modernised and houses some fab designer pieces (more on that below) but the beautiful bones of the early 20th century building are still evident and the huge windows flood the space with light even on the darkest of days. I could call this space my home, could you?! perhaps I'd need to add a piano like the one in this home, just for old times sake?!

The kitchen in particular is utterly striking - I could imagine an evening with friends - good food, candles, music, perhaps a little dancing?!

Is there any part of this home you like in particular?

A few items I know and love: Artichoke Suspension Light, String shelving system, Tolix chairs, HAY strap mirror.

I do absolutely love the idea of a conversion don't you? I've seen so many fabulous converted spaces over the years including a converted carpenter's workshopbar, monks retreat, barn, garage and garden shed. In other words, you could convert just about anything and make an incredible living space!

Is there a cool history behind your living space?
