A Swedish home with lovely details

If I was looking for an apartment right now (in Gothenburg, Sweden) I'd pick this one! Not only is it an etage in an old, beautifully renovated building known as 'The Carpenter's Pride', it also has lovely details (I'm looking at you tiles, doors and wood beams!), and of course there's the calm tones throughout. The exterior is reminiscent of brick houses commonly seen in the UK (which of course, I'm naturally drawn to!). Oh and it's located in a beautiful valley which meanders towards the Göta River - which runs between Lake Vänern and the Kattegat sea. I'm sold, how about you?!

I have to say the area around the dining room window is so clever - providing storage and a cosy window seat - love that! Plus I have a bit of a thing for rustic benches (I've got a similar one in my dining area). Love the way they've hung a row of hooks above it too.

A couple of other items I know and love - beautiful Thonet chairs, wishbone chairs, and a pure linen table cloth.

Is there anything that stands out to you?

You can see more pics of this lovely home - including the facade here.

Have a lovely day!

PS If you haven't yet - don't forget to enter the give-away to win fun bedding from Feliz here (the competition closes on Thursday!).

The Copenhagen home of a Danish style icon

Hello Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend?! Today is a big day here - my littlest girl started school. I've never seen anyone look so big and yet so small,  I'm not actually sure who was more nervous me or her?!  Anyway, all was well and I'm feeling calmer now, so it's definitely time to get on with today's tour! This lovely home belongs to Pernille Teisbaek, stylist, co-founder and creative director at Social Zoo Direct and her boyfriend. When it comes to fashion Pernille is your girl (you only have to check out her instagram gallery to see this!). When you see her fab apartment, it's obvious her eye for style covers interiors too!  Pernille likes to mix and match - blending old and new pieces from different eras (she has a distinct penchant for brass/ gold too). The result is a unique space with a touch of glam - what a perfect space with which to kick off the week?!

What a great space - loving the palm trees!

Anything that catches your eye?

A few other items I love: Dining area: Series 7 chairs. Sitting room PK22 chairs, Nagel candle holders, this Beni Ourain style rug is similar.  Bedroom light grey linen bedding, knit blanket, bedside table from Piet Hein Eek. Linen cushion covers from H&M Home.

I love the way Ditte captured this home - do you remember her own space which I showed a few weeks ago?! Beautiful!

Have a great start to the week! Back tomorrow with another home tour which I think you're going to like.....see you then!
