The worry-free way of buying a home, Stockholm style

I'll never forget selling our apartment and buying our house - all the emotion and worry involved, have you been through the same?! Imagine, if you could try out the property before making up your mind? Get a feeling of how the light falls, the layout, the neighbourhood. Now that would be something. And likewise, as a seller, how great would it be if you weren't in a hurry to sell but instead could relax and wait until the right offer came along, say in 12 months time? Enter Nooks. A Stockholm based property business offering a range of options like this (including the option to place your home on Airbnb). Genius! Personally, I'd be happy to give this apartment a whirl. It looks super relaxed, full of light and has views over the rooftops of Stockholm. What do you reckon?

The first picture's a bit baffling.... did you spot the illusion?!

Get the look: wishbone chairs, rattan chair, source a vintage suitcase here, I love this selection of vintage moroccan rugs.

Other homes with a colourful boho vibe include one of my all time favourites - a swedish home with black floors and the happy home of a Dutch illustrator.

Have a great start to the week!

A lovely Norwegian home in summertime

Summer's in full swing here in Scandinavia and there's nowhere I'd rather be ('there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing' - I hear in Finland it was 11 degrees yesterday - brrrrr!). One particular home in Norway is making full use of being in the land of  the glorious midnight sun. Photographer Elisabeth Heier, who's lovely home I've previously featured here, here and here (yes, I love her style), recently shared pictures of her terrace, ready for long suppers al fresco with family and friends. I love the delicate touches of wild summer flowers indoors too. Perfect inspiration for the weekend, don't you think?!

Oh so lovely! It's amazing what you a difference you can make with a handful of pretty wild flowers from the garden. 

Do you have a favourite flower?

Get the look from Elisabeth's home:

Terrace - Elisabeth laid the table on the terrace with Broste Copenhagen dinnerware, fresh white napkins, and flowers picked from the garden and arranged in little vases in various heights and shapes.

Bedroom - The back wall is painted in 1269 Demring (Lady Pure Color) from Jotun. Also featured -  milk lamp, beige stonewashed linen bedding, and Flowerpot lamp. Flower weave rug.

Front of stairs - marble table lamp.  Hallway - &tradition mass light (I also love this marble hanging light), Henrik Rasmussen vase.

Hallway - LIND DNA tray, Swing clothes hanger.

And before I head off, here's a little weekend link love:

I love the idea of designing a room around a painting (this is also a great example!). 

Go big (or go home) with botanicals this season. 

Two ways to see Italy - would you choose this or this?

This cute baby blanket has got over 35,000 repins on Pinterest (I can totally see why, can you?!)

That's the cake solved for Saturday afternoon tea (and Sunday)- nom nom nom!I'd need to recover on this Safari daybed / terrace afterwards - bliss!

And finally, the world's best beaches....just cos.

Have a wonderful weekend, see you Monday!
