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.

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

Kitchen goals

This uber stylish home caught our eye when it came up for sale via Entrance Mäkleri in Gothenburg. We love all the original details such as the wood panelling, original windows and herringbone parquet. The large kitchen is really something special, can you imagine having a dinner party here!? We sure can

Wood and marble dream combo

How gorgeous is this kitchen with wooden cupboards and Carrera marble splash-back?! The little shelf in between the two cupboards is perfect for adding some trinkets to create a personal touch.

We also really like how the bedroom ceiling has been painted pink, a risk that really pays off and adds something unique to the space.

Would you dare to paint your ceiling in a colour?

Perfectly put together studio

This little studio flat, in the heart of Gothenburg's Majorna district, is full of character and period features typical for this area of Gothenburg.

Even though this is a small space this apartment still benefits from a good sized kitchen and original built in storage through-out.

In Sweden it is common to see good sized kitchens in small spaces like this one. No matter the size of the flat, having a kitchen breakfast table is a must in a Swedish home.

The owners of this particular flat has also built a partition for the bed to make this studio feel more like a one bedroom apartment. We love this sweet little flat, perfect as a first home for a single person!
