Monochrome touches in a Stockholm pad

Well hello there! It's a beautiful sunny day here in Malmö - woohoo! (It isn't lost on me that some of you lucky people get sun everyday, but here it's a wonderful, rare thing!). Which reminds me, if you have questions about the weather or anything else Sweden related why don't you call the country. No, seriously! Sweden has just became the first country to have it's own phone number! I haven't put it to the test yet - if you do let us know what happens! Right, on with today's home tour. I thought I'd go slightly further north today with this turn of the century apartment in Vasastan, Stockholm beautifully styled by Emma Wallmén for Fantastic Frank. The space is a great example of the visual impact of using the full height of a room. I'm loving the monochrome theme too. Let's take a tour....

Is this your kind of style?

I especially like the sitting room and children's bedroom. 

A few pieces I know and love : SINNERLIG jar with lid and cork bench, grey sheepskins, spotted cushion, Eames side chairs, Arne Jacobsen cups with letters, Muuto dot hooks are similar. I love this vintage letter W light. Children's room: Harlequin wallpaper, black and white triangle basket.

Are you doing any renovating this spring? We're re-arranging our sitting room right now and trying to decide on a new coffee table (as much as I really love our mid-century one it's too big - HUMPH!) - what do you reckon, one roundish one or two nest style? Tips welcome! Literally as I wrote this, the courier arrived with our new Tom Dixon stool - *so excited* - I'm sure a pic will be up on Instagram shortly....

A few other links I love today:

I wouldn't mind using this hotel as my base in Paris, so chic!

Loving this boho bedroom...

Simple spring style.

One very cute nursery (using large and small triangular stickers).  And fab cribs!

My interview with Exclusive Magazine (thank you for inviting me to come and chat about Scandi design!). 

Have a wonderful day friends!

PS I can't believe I put up the wrong link yesterday , here it is again - 15 tips that will trick your house guests into thinking you have your sh*t together made me chuckle!

A serene Swedish home in muted green and grey

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend?! Spring is officially here in Malmö - our boat was put back in the water, yay! Now for some sunshine (and downtime!).... . I thought I'd kick off the week with this lovely Swedish family home found over at Entrance Mäkleri. The open-plan space has been decorated throughout in muted greens and light greys and has the most beautiful architecture. I couldn't imagine a hectic Monday morning here, could you?

Entrance / Photograhy: Anders Bergstedt.

Lovely! The traditional Swedish 'Kakelugn' in the nursery is so charming, don't you think? I love how it can be seen across the flat too.

Other items I know and love: terrarium used as a candle holder (I love this one!), the shoe cabinet by the door is by IKEA and has been updated with leather handles, House Doctor glass bauble cluster light. Source gold / brass candle holders here. This silver toy car is similar.

This really made me laugh: 15 tips that will trick your house guests into thinking you have your sh*t together. Have you used any of these?!

Have a great start to the week!

PS our boat is available to charter if you fancy a jaunt on the Öresund and a sail under that bridge!
