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!

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

A Danish home with history

Jesper and Vibeke Panduro live in a beautiful old house in Aalborg, Denmark. Together the couple run the popular Danish design company Skagerak and their flair for design is clearly reflected in their home. Take a look!

Scandinavia in Ontario

When we first saw this stunning home on Remodelista we immediately thought it must be located in Scandinavia. It has a classic Swedish tiled fireplace (kakelugn in Swedish) and the home is full of Scandinavian design pieces. The house is actually located in Ontario, Canada and belongs to John and Juli Baker, founders of interior concept store Mjölk selling Scandinavian and Japanese pieces.

The couple had the 200 year old kakelugn sent from Sweden and reassembled in their home tile by tile, you can read more about it here in the Mjölks journal.

Among the beautiful furniture we can spot a Arne Jackobsen sofa, a classic Märta Måås-Fjetterström rug, Hans Wegner chairs and a few pieces from Svenskt Tenn and Josef Frank. We also have to mention the stunning antique solid marble bath tub from an old spa in Portugal, that must have come with a hefty shipping fee!

Green, green, green...

The light in this is stunning Stockholm apartment is so dreamy. The pale sage green wall colour really complements the diffused light as well as enhanes the beautiful wall panels.

The layout is great as it gives you that open plan feeling but still has a bit of separation between the rooms – and a built in bookcase wall is always a winning concept in our books!

We are not quite sure what to think about the wall mounted greenery in the dining room, is it pretty cool or a bit too much?! What do you think?

Grandeur

Imagine waking up in this grand bedroom every morning? It would definitely make those grey Monday mornings a bit less mundane. This flat in Gothenburg is full of stunning original turn of the century features which are to die for. The panelling in the bedroom is beautifully enhanced by the stunning warm grey paint colour. Adding to the grand decor is the the lovely original star parquet flooring which luckily has been preserved in this room.
