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 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.

Understated Scandi-style in a 1930s Gothenburg flat

This is such a perfect example of Scandinavian style that I had to share; it’s cosy, the palette is simple, there are strong lines throughout the place, and it’s all pared back. If you’re interested in more like this, why not follow us on Facebook for regular updates?

You can buy the swan poster here, but shipping outside of Sweden is around three times the price of it, so take that into account! If anybody knows where the lamp is from in the kitchen nook, please comment below.
