A simply stunning and calm Swedish space

Sometimes, not very often though, I search and search for the perfect home to post and simply can't find anything. From experience, I know that often this is when the most beautiful home tours of all pop up. And today is one of those days. For me, this home is the epitome of calm, Swedish pared-back simplicity. It has just the right balance of traditional (beautiful period features and architecture, antique and vintage furniture) and modern (brass fittings, grey marble worktop, industrial lights, classic design furniture...) and a wonderful use of natural materials throughout. Beautiful styling by the team at Sarah Widman and definitely worth the wait, don't you think?!

To me this is one of those homes in which you could never feel anything but calm. Just what I needed on a rather hectic Thursday!

Could you live here?

Other lovely spaces for a touch of calm today include this striking danish home (cue: music from that piano), a lovely white and grey Swedish space and the serene home of a Swedish singer here in Malmö. Or perhaps a duvet day in this Danish bedroom could do the trick?!

Have a lovely, relaxed day!

PS If you find some time this weekend,  I'll be holding a fabulous give-away with a very cool, coveted Finnish design prize. I'm sooo excited as I think you're going to love it! Watch this space....

The lovely, light-filled workspace of a blogger and nutritionist

How're you feeling today? If like me, you're in the middle of a looooong working week you might enjoy this inspirational home office in Northern Virginia, USA created by Carlene Thomas and her husband. The space was converted from a second story front porch into a beautiful office for Carlene to write her blog and work as a dietitian nutritionist. Three out of the four walls have french windows and it's a long narrow room which presented quite a challenge when it came to working on the layout. However, the clever use of a mirror and handmade furniture helped to solve the puzzle and the result is a beautiful uncluttered, clean home office. I could work from here today (especially with that little doggy curled up at my feet), how about you?!

A quick guide to where a few of the items are from: vintage Eames chairs (there's currently a beautiful one in cream for sale here), antique mirror (find a similar one here). The black door is painted in Benjamin Moore Onyx. Black and white painting by Meg Biram. The floating desk was built by Carlene's husband. Bin from H&M home. Thonet chair. original Inslee watercolour. Anthropologie pencil holder.

See before and after pictures as well as more info about this space here.

For more inspiration you might want to make a pot of coffee and scroll through these home offices and studios. After all - if you find the right job and create an environment you love, you'll never have to do a days 'work' again! So they say...

....but no matter how wonderful work is, I'll always prefer travel and the great outdoors, how about you?!

Thank you so much to Carlene for submitting the images for today's post! If you have any images of your home / studio /atelier / outdoor space you'd like to share I'd love to hear from you!

Have a lovely day!
