A 100 year old Southern Sweden house / give-away winner

Monday, 25 May 2015

Hello Monday, you've come around quickly?  I thought I'd kick off the week with a lovely house in Österlen, an area of rolling hills, fresh pastures and beautiful beaches East of Malmö. It's home to many artists thanks to the lovely light and so worth a visit if you're ever in Southern Sweden. This red brick home in the heart of Österlen is 100 years old this year and has been beautifully refurbished with careful attention to the detail and character of the original 'Doctor's House'. What a delight?!














Fantastic Frank

Oh, and did I mention it's for sale?! Could you live here?

I'm loving the raised den in the children's room - what a great touch?! The selection of different shaped vases on the dining table look so pretty and yet such a simple idea to recreate, and the Moroccan tiles (try made in mano for similar) used as wall decoration in the bedroom - what a fab idea?!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

A few items I know and love: Kitchen - House Doctor rug / series 7 chairs. Dining room: Normann Copenhagen Bell lights / try Farrow & Ball Railings for a similar grey and H&M Home for a selection of vases. Sitting room: Eames RAR rocking chair / Stockholm rug / Hay cushion. Bedroom: linen bedding, Moroccan tiles on wall. Children's bedroom: Hay cushions

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the weekend give-away - the winner has now been announced....here!!

Have a great start to the week.

A lovely creative family home in Varberg, Sweden

Friday, 22 May 2015

I'm so excited about today's home tour. I think it's actually the biggest tour I've ever shown (24 pics!! I just couldn't narrow it down, I love every inch of it). The house belongs to one of my favourite Swedish bloggers / photographers -  Kristin Lagerkvist, her husband and three children in Varberg, Sweden. They've just taken the difficult decision to put the house on the market  - woah?! But I'm told they're moving into their dream home (I see another home tour coming up...). Kristin sees her space as her playground and loves to decorate, re-arrange and add flee market finds. She takes inspiration from social media, children, friends and nature and is also inspired by artists' homes. Let's take a look (you might need a pot of tea for this one....). 




























Photography: Kristin Lagerkvist For sale through Fastighetsbyrå

Relaxed, unique, imaginative. Simply lovely.That's what I think, how about you?

A little note on items in the home: The bedroom is painted in Lady Pure Color S7010 – B30. They were after a light Scandinavian look in the kitchen but didn't want to go white so they chose beech as an alternative. The Moroccan tiles are Jazz in yellow, green and blue tones. The coffee table in the sitting room is Noguchi, with a bumling light in brass. Try etsy, ebay, Bukowski and Lauritz for vintage items.

More lovely homes owned by creatives (in case you're in the mood!) include a danish apartment of an artist, a colourful melbourne home, and a striking black and white Danish space. Love this converted artist studio in Copenhagen too.

This weekend I'm holding a really exciting give-away, open to everyone....make sure you stop by to check it out!

Time for the weekend - yaaaay! have a wonderful couple of days!
