A lovely home and studio in Sweden's oldest town

I love how there are places which hold special memories, don't you? Sweden's oldest town of Sigtuna, just outside Stockholm is one of those for me. Not only did I visit one of my best friends there when I was around 16 (skinny dipping in the lake at midnight was just one of the many antics), and her wonderful parents still live there but many of my friends grew up in the town too. I was therefore so excited to come across this lovely Sigtuna home and studio. I don't know the belongs to Rigette Klint, Brand Manager at beautiful online store Edblad and her family, but I immediately felt nostalgic seeing the exterior, and was delighted to see the inside was rather lovely too! Let's take a tour...

Such a lovely home. don't you think? I love that Rigette's style is so instinctive and doesn't following any particular track.

I'm in love with the rattan chair in the sitting room. You can pick the same one up here (in case you're wondering (I was, until last week!).

We're seeing that lovely blue of the table everywhere right now including on the walls of the home of a Swedish food blogger, and in this Danish apartment. So pretty!

If you're interested, you can read the full article and find out where many of the items in this home are from over at Elle Decoration. 

More fab Swedish homes from the Stockholm area include this idyllic cottage in the archipelago , an uber cool cabin with a boho touch and a calm white and grey apartment. I really love Stockholm and the surrounding archipelagos, living in the South it still remains a mystery to me but I'd to love to discover more (preferably by sail boat). How about you?

Have a lovely day!

PS is there a place which holds special memories for you? I'm intrigued to hear...

A beautifully simple, graphical home in Finland

I came across this striking Finnish home on IG the other day and was completely blown away. The space belongs to Maja, an art director and blogger behind Musta Ovi ('black door') - where she shares beautiful interior inspiration (much of which is from her own home) and DIY ideas.  The oh so fabulous, light-filled monochrome space which shares with her partner and baby combines Scandinavian simplicity with loft-style. Soft rugs and touches of light wood add warmth and softness to the otherwise graphical concrete and white canvas.  Be still my beating heart!

This home has certainly blown away any mid-week cobwebs, it's just so fresh don't you think?

In terms of items I know and love...I'm not sure where to start, there are so many! Here goes: sitting room - Tom Dixon Beat lights, Hay lounge chairs, coffee table. Rug. My deer bat dog print. Dining: Artek stools. Kitchen: B print, Flos 265 light, Tivoli radio. Bedroom: white linen bedding, Dreamer print. Office: Alex drawers, Uten.Silo storage unit, wood bead wardrobe snake. Outdoors: black rattan chairs.

Sauna's make up a huge part of Finnish culture, so much so that in a country of five million inhabitants there are over three million saunas!  Maja is no exception, you can check our her lovely sauna here.

I'm such a huge fan of Finnish homes and have showed so many here over the years. They're all squirreled away in an archive here (scroll passed the first one as it will likely be this one), one of my all time favourites being this lovely one.

Have a lovely day!
