A fun little apartment in Stockholm

I found another apartment for sale on Lagerlings that I had to share. This one is spunky and fun in a fairly small footprint (63 m²). It consists of basically 2 rooms - a combined kitchen/dining room/living room and a bedroom. Some photography framed and hung along with a gallery wall add some drama to the walls and the floor to ceiling shelving in the dining room is a great storage solution and also adds some architectural interest to the space. A glamorous bedroom with stripes, satin curtains and faux fur round off the drama. (And I'm guessing the homeowner found a really awesome sale on Kartell Bourgie lamps).

Working on a Saturday

If I was an employee at Blush Flowers in the Auckland, New Zealand suburb of Parnell I don't think I would be actually working. No, technically I'd be floating on a cloud of perfumed beauty. That's why there is no one in shot in the shop. They are floating high, just out of sight, above the photographer's head. The design is by owner and creative director Kelly Karam with key pieces by Douglas and Bec.

A mix of classic and modern (and plants!) in Stockholm

This is what happens when I try to delay starting the painting of 22 door panels (the last of the mahogany crap varnish) - I decide blog research is more important and I come across this absolute beauty of an apartment in for sale in Östermalm, Stockholm via Lagerlings. 247m² of classic and modern goodness with a plethora of plants as the icing on the cake. This home speaks to me on so many levels. I am in love and going to dream about this all weekend (while I melt - Ottawa is supposed to be around 40C! Jo isn't the only one experiencing abnormally high temperatures.)

Diving into the weekend

With only a couple of days until winter in my part of the world we are still experiencing summer temperatures. Where is winter? I want to pull out my winter wardrobe and layer up. Instead it's perfect weather for lounging around a fabulous backyard swimming pool like this one by Pepo Botanic Design. I guess I shouldn't complain too much.
