Midsummer inspiration

This Friday Midsommar is celebrated in Sweden, where it's a big date in the yearly calendar. It's one of our favourite holidays and we'll be celebrating it here in London this year. It's not quite the same as the Swedish country side but we can do our best to create a summery midsummer vibe, scroll down and take a look at what our inspiration for the day will be!

Warm and homely

This Stockholm home looks really cosy yet super stylish. We love the wall and woodwork colour choices, giving this home a personal touch. Of course we have to mention our MeliMeli Luca dot sofa in the living room! It looks beautiful in this home, you can find out more about it here

Summer at home

This summer is one most people will be spending at home. Vacationing in your own country can be truly wonderful, renting a little cottage in the country or by the cost is a great way to get a change of scenery. Now we just praying for a warm and sunny summer!

The ultimate kitchen diner

Swedish interior designer Marie-Louise Sjögren is selling her stunning Stockholm apartment. It is clear to see that this home has be carefully designed by a pro. One of our favourite rooms in this space is the kitchen / dining room - making the kitchen feel like any other room in the house is a great way to create a nice and calm dining area. By opting for only bottom cupboards and using the space above the sink for a stunning piece of artwork cleverly disguises the fact you are dining in a kitchen. By using the kitchen surface to display some beautiful artefacts makes the space feel very cosy and create a feel of a sideboard rather than kitchen worktops. The wall opposite houses all the kitchen appliances beautifully covered up for a sleek and cohesive look. The rest of the home is pretty amazing too.. take a look!

Neutrals

A neutral colour scheme never goes out of fashion and is a great way of creating a beautiful looking home, whatever your style. Sticking to neutrals is also a great way to create a calm, cohesive and professional looking home decor in a simple and easy way. The trick is to really commit to the colour palette and not stray with that fun colourful printed cushion you spotted in the latest number of ELLE Decoration!

10 out of 10

Wow, this apartment is really something extraordinary. The fact that it's also located on a historic Stockholm street in a building from the 1730's isn't making us swoon any less! We love the eclectic selection of artwork and that shearling sofa is absolutely stunning. This apartment has a beautiful mix of vintage and modern pieces, creating a very personal yet stylish home, definitely 10 out of 10
