A sense of space in a small home

This sweet little apartment in Gothenburg has really succeeded in making compact living feeling spacious. The green-blue wall colour creates a sense of space and the rattan and naked wood makes for a calm feel - and of course plenty of greenery and plants help add freshness to the home. A winning combo!

High in the sky

There is something so lovely about a top floor apartment - the feeling of being high up in the sky and having a constant stream of light flooding in!

Can't you just imagine having your weekend breakfasts here with the balcony door open, a cup of coffee in your hand reading the paper?

Cosy and light

A trend we've seen emerging in Sweden recently is beautifully painted woodworks – such as doors, skirting and window frames. This works particularly well in older homes as they have plenty of period features such as wooden clad wall panels. To achieve this look it's important to pick a pale muted tone that works well with your furniture and decor. Unlike the Brits the Scandinavians don't really use their curtains much and this style means you can skip curtains all together. Venetian blind has been fitted in the bedroom windows which is a good way of getting some privacy without taking anything away from the window detailing.

1920's perfection

Johanna Bradford shared this stunning home on her blog recently. The home belongs to her friends in Gothenburg who live in a lovely 1920s house. We love the William Morris wall paper, wood-clad kitchen walls and the Royal Copenhagen dinnerware service which can be spotted around the home!

Modern Muted tones

This sleek home in Stockholm is beautifully styled and curated to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere. We love the velvet curved sofa and ottoman, which fits perfectly in this large and open space. Herringbone parquet is also one of our all time favourites, adding a classic touch to the otherwise modern and contemporary decor.

Some shelving with books and plats would have added a homely feel and made the space feel a little less "showroom-y" but apart from that this apartment tick all the boxes

The home is currently for sale via Nomad Mäkleri, see all the images here

The cosy Minimalist

We recently stumbles across this beautiful home on the blog Sf Girl and fell in love with the calm minimalist decor! This ultra charming home belongs to Nina Plummer and her husband who live Edinburgh and run the lifestyle shop Ingredients LDN. We really like their brand, the website is full of beautifully curated pieces and we love the the their ethos of slow living – find out more about it here

This home strikes the perfect balance of minimalistic decor yet still feeling very lived-in and homely, something that isn't very easy to do! We love the considered neutral colour palette teamed with natural and rustic materials and details. The kitchen is absolutely perfection, with the subtlety white washed cupboards, marble worktops and a shaker rail running along the wall.

The Coach House - London

The Coach House in London was created by architect Matheson Whiteley to be a discrete and delicately composed two-bedroom house. The space displays a unique quality of pared-back craftsmanship associated with Matheson’s work, which incorporates raw materials in a sophisticated way. One of the most effective details being a glazed partition dividing the dining room and kitchen. The space is available for sale through The Modern House.
