Bergsundsgatan 15

This is another from Stockholm,  I really like how the place manages to make casual look so cool. If I could change something, I would have more accents like the yellow pillow and pink chest of drawers.

The colours in this bedroom are on point. Also, see the frames above the door in the centre.

This ceiling light is too cool.

A 19th century apartment with original features

This is a show-stopping loft in central Stockholm. Built in the 1800s, the original flooring and beams are still in, and exposed. It’s currently available on Nooks.se and is one of the most viewed properties there. I like it, even though it doesn’t follow my personal style. If I were to move in (which probably means winning the lottery) I’d add a tonne of soft furnishings – throws, pillows, and even more rugs than they already have.

The bright reds really work well with the exposed dark wood.

Somehow the bamboo sticks in the vase work? I would never have guessed.

Such a spacious shower. I love showers with high ceilings.

Most people hide away their washer/dryer. Here they seem to have made it into a statement piece. Love. it.

Once again I’m including the floor plan here.

A view to a lake

This tour today is something special – a penthouse with lakefront views near Stockholm from Nooks. From the top, you can look across Lake Mälaren (Lake Malar in English), one of Sweden’s largest lakes, and see Ekerö island, where Agnetha Fältskog from Abba reportedly lives. I can only imagine what the sunsets and sunrises are like in that top bedroom, especially as the balcony isn’t limited to one face. I think if I lived there I might even go the way of Cato the elder and swim au naturale every morning. Scroll right down to the bottom for a floorplan.

This is such a perfect spot to enjoy with some friends. I would probably add some hardy potted plants, and a spot for tealights though!

This home is rich in two things – balconies and charm!

I love that ceiling light. Also, are rugs in kitchen on trend now or what?

This pale green room below would be my first choice if I were staying here, it looks absolutely serene.

Once again I’m posting the floorplan here. It really helps me visualise a house when it’s more than one storey. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

A bright and spacious split-level studio

Following on from last week’s Friday roundup, I was looking at tiny homes and studios. This ground floor studio from FantasticFrank caught my eye. There’s blush colours on a very white backdrop. This isn’t me posting Monday’s regular tour, but it’s a bonus for the weekend as I couldn’t wait to share! Scroll down right to the bottom for a new feature also 😉

The cool shelves in the upper left can be found here, and the poster of New York is by David Ehrenstråhle which you can buy from his website.

I really want to know where to get that globe light. In the meantime, I bought something similar recently (at least with the base), check it out here.

You can find the pendant here. All this black makes such a bold contrast.

I’m also trying something new this week. I’ve noticed that most websites don’t share the floorplan of their home tours so I’ll be doing just that as an experiment. Let me know in the comments if you think this is useful. I don’t believe, given the pictures above, that the labels below need translation.

Linnéstaden, Majorsgatan 4

The living room has been kept really bright, with light wooden floors and bright white elsewhere. My favourite part of this (hence the featured image) is actually the kitchen, it opens up onto a wonderful little balcony and the fittings look very traditional.  The bathroom almost feels Arabesque, too.

This house is no longer for sale, but you can find a lot more like it at Entrance Makleri, which is the source for these images.
