A romantic Swedish home with vintage touches

Even though I've published over 1000 Scandinavian home tours here on My Scandinavian Home, there are some spaces which really stand out. This Swedish family home in Gothenburg is one of them. And now it's time for owners Cattis, Robert and their daughter Stella to move on. How they can part with this beautiful home with it's magnificent garden doors, exposed brick walls, sweeping staircase and romantic wallpapers is beyond me. But one thing's for sure, I'm sure their next home will be equally, if not more, fabulous! And whoever snaps up this space (for sale here) is very lucky indeed! Tempted?!

Homeowner: Cattis / Another side of this life. Entrance. 

It could be that the style looks a little English with it's patterned wallpaper, retro kitchen tiles and rows of books. Or it could simply be that the owners have created a truly personal, unique and relaxed space with a lovely romantic touch. Either way, I absolutely love this home!

Could you imagine living here?

Get the look: kitchen - cube illusion tiles in grey look similar, Vitra hang-it-all,  Tom Dixon Etch light, source beautiful vintage mirrors here, I love these vintage Thonet chairs similar to the ones seen in the dining area. Sitting room - vintage string shelving, find a similar macrame wall hanging here, seagrass basketBedroom: Linen bedding. William Morris wallpaper.

You can see more pictures of this lovely space here. It's also worth putting your feet up and browsing Cattis' blog which often features lovely snapshots of family life within the home.

Have a lovely day!

A calm Swedish space in neutrals and a beautiful wood floor

Hello! I have to say I'm having a quite a few wifi issues here in the rather beautiful and exotic colonial town of Galle, Sri Lanka. It's amazing how frustrating it can be to have intermittent wifi, but I'm trying to convince myself that it's a great thing that I've found a little corner of the world where I can be disconnected for days at a time too! I'm soldiering on regardless and heading (virtually) to a city today where wifi is no doubt working like a dream - and this lovely home in Gothenburg, Sweden. I love the neutral tones - the copper, wood, rattan and cognac against the fresh white - and that beautiful original wood floor. What a calm space?

Entrance. Found via Coterie with thanks. 

What a lovely space! I think I could go home to this pad everyday, how about you?!

Get the look: Ant chair, vintage chopping boards, linen bedding (I was so happy to hear the linen bedding I've been recommending has been a hit by several readers!). Could the print above the bed be from Love Warriors of Sweden? I have a feeling the hexigon mirrors are by IKEA, please correct me if I'm wrong!

Other spaces with a lovely neutral colour theme include this fabulous home in the LA Hills and a stunning Swedish apartment.

Have a lovely day!

PS I'm going to do my best to continue posting this week but I apologise in advance if I can't publish or posts suddenly ping in att odd hours of the day!
