A harmonious Swedish space

This is one beautiful home. The soft colours, the light, the sea and landscape photography, the relaxed feel. Everything about this 1930's functionalist Stockholm home is just so harmonious. It belongs to Karolina Borg, stylist and founder of Swedish online magazine The Way We Play, her husband and two little boys. This space has brought a sense of calm to my mid week, I hope it has to yours too?!

Homeowner: Karolina Borg. Lovely Life. Photography: Amelia Widell, shared with kind permission.

Is there anything you love in particular about Karolina's home?

If you're intrigued, you can see more beautiful pictures and a complete interview (in Swedish) here

I've always loved the sea. It could be because I come from a family of sailors and spent much of my childhood on a boat off the south coast of England. One day I'd like to live in a cottage like this one by the sea  and not far from here. I find it so therapeutic to watch the changing scenery. In I've ordered this beautiful seascape from Kara Rosenlund for my wall.  Max Wanger (as seen in this home) and Jarrod Corbet also sell some beautiful shots of the ocean.

Are you a sea, mountain or townie kinda person?

The fab light-filled studio of Camille Styles

Happy Monday! Is there such a thing?! Well yes, if you work in a space like this. Designed by Claire Zinnecker  for Camille Styles, the studio is filled with natural light, pops of bright colours and lush greenery. There's also plenty of meeting / social spaces where I could see myself drinking tea and chatting - I mean, brainstorming- which include a fab sofa, round Tulip table and grey marble kitchen.  I'm sure I'd look forward to my Monday mornings would be if I worked in this studio, how about you?

Is this your kind of work space?

Items I know and love: Eames DSR side chairs, kilim cushions/pillows, rustic wooden stool, Tulip dining table.

A lot of thought has gone into this space. Not only does it look great but everything is designed to stimulate productivity. Take the table -research suggests having items which are curved rather than straight create positive emotions which in turn stimulates creativity. Round tables also encourage people to work together (if ever there was an excuse to invest in a Tulip table).

In turn, research has shown that the presence of greenery can help employees recover from demanding activities, lower stress levels and reduce office pollution levels. Time for a little indoor gardening?!

See more pictures of this fab studio here. I also love this, this and this studio and all of these images for office/atelier/studio inspiration.

I also found this piece interesting about why large open-plan offices are so not cool.

Have a great start to the working week! 

PS Thank you so much to everyone who entered the weekend give-away - the winner will be announced here later today! 

PPS I am in the process of making a few improvements to my blog design, please bear with me! if you see anything strange it would be great to hear about it in the comment section. Thank you!
