The tasty home of a Swedish food blogger

Friday, 24 April 2015

I actually once linked to this wonderful home of food blogger Sofia Wood and her family, but today I realised this South of Stockholm space deserves a post of it's own. I mean, look at that blue sofa for starters! Before I even comment on the decor though, shall we begin with the breakfast? I mean, cinnamon swirl, blueberrires, chocolate and figs? I know what I'll be eating for breakfast this weekend, you?! Anyways, the home. What can I say? It's lovely - pared-back, fairly monochrome but with a lovely touch of mint green and brass in the kitchen - what a wonderful combination? I could certainly pad around here this weekend, how about you?!

Back to the sofa. I note how she has added a dark grey sheepskin - which against the dark blue is very now. To take the whole look a step further I will always love this and this home, with their dark, brooding notes through out. Could you go over to the dark side?

This and this sofa are similar.

Another thing that stands out is the way the books are stacked in the bedroom. They've gone for a similar look in this home. I love this informal way of storing / displaying novels, how about you?

Is there anything that stands out to you?

More photos and full interview with Sofia (in Swedish) here.

This morning I'm on my way to the IKEA headquarters in Älmhult. Which is exciting but in one way a shame too - I was looking forward to making my mad dash to nab a limited edition street art print at my local store this morning. Will you be going? If so, let me know how you get on!

Have a fabulous weekend and see you Monday!

PS I've had lots of questions about the fab print in yesterday's post - anyone know where it's from?


The Loft, Holland

Thursday, 23 April 2015

Hello. I'm in virtual shop heaven this morning. Enter The Loft, an oh so beautiful 'shop' in Arnhem, Holland.  If there's one thing the owners love it's to see 'spaces work their magic on people', and work it's magic it does  Set in a former school the owners hand pick design furniture, art and accessories and piece them together in a forever changing apartment to allow you to see how they work in reality. All items are available for purchase. This isn't the first time we've seen this concept, I've previously featured The Apartment in Copenhagen and The Line in New York. Could this be the interior shopping of the future? If so I'm in, are you?!

What a shop?! Amsterdam is already on my travel hit list but seeing stores like this make me want to get straight on a flight and visit Arnhem too, how about you?! (I'd stay at this guest house and also pop into this shop- see I've already got it planned!).

If you're lucky enough to be living or visiting Arnhem you can buy all the items you see in the Loft (if still available). Otherwise here's a quick guide: Hay Mags soft Sofa, Normann Copenhagen bell lamp, Z1 cotton light. Source wooden benches and stools at Lovely & Co.

For more fab Dutch home inspiration today you might want to take a look inside this fab Amsterdam apartment, a beautiful white home and this lovely holiday cottage which is actually available to rent.

Have a lovely day!


A home for a mid-week touch of calm

Wednesday, 22 April 2015

There are just so many lovely Swedish homes on the market right now I can barely keep up! Today, I'm all over this beautiful light-filled space in Gothenburg. The 1920's era in which it was built is still very much evident thanks to the serving cabinet, mirrored doors and cast iron radiators (I used to live in an apartment very similar to this and the tour makes me feel so nostalgic - I'd forgotten all about the blinds which are actually placed between the triple glazed window panes!). Stylist Emma Fisher, has given the space a cool modern touch with mid-century furniture, art and copper while the muted tones create a real sense of calm in the midst of a city.

For me the stand out piece has to be that copper light shade - don't you agree? Does anyone know where to find it? Other pretty copper lights, accessories and furniture for the home can be sourced here - where to start?!).

Did anything catch your eye?

More homes to add a little mid-week calm to your life include these spaces in pastels, this fab Danish home with a beautiful grand piano (oh how I'd love one of those!) and this serene white and grey Swedish apartment.

And if you're really in need of a little serenity this morning - I find dreaming I'm floating in one of these idyllic pools helps. And I could quite happily swap places with this girl or enjoy the peace and tranquility from one of these loungers, how about you?! *sigh* if only!

Have a wonderful, relaxing day!
