Stalking in Sweden (again)

I couldn't stay away. I just had to go stalking through Swedish real estate sites. From Alvhem Mäkleri & Interiör  - the look is almost their brand. White floors, cute accessories, the pop/splash/flash/dash and dollop of colour, a classic scandi piece or two and the obligatory pair of discarded fashionable shoes and dress on the hanger. The story that the styling tells lures you in. You want the lifestyle as much as the apartment. If you could you'd buy this home, live this life. Mission accomplished.

Ah the Swedes! I'm always impressed how they can make white interiors so warm and homely...

These interiors are superb! Love the white floors, the white decor and the high ceilings - divine.

Ja, yes! Love the design and looks of the motherland. Alvhem is a great source and I agree they have a very distinct styling thumb print. Lovely, simple and very Swedish.
Have a lovely end to the week.

I wonder how they keep the white painted wood floor so clean? Not any marks left?

The styling in their images is as always, stunning. The spaces look like they are lived in by cool people. :)

Such a sunny & bright apartment. Interesting light fixtures. They really stood out for me.

The Swedish aesthetic is quite appealing with its fresh simplicity, yet there are personalized touches to keep the spaces from appearing too sterile.
Gorgeous apartment! And so peaceful.

I love how it looks so clean and simple, but amazingly comfortable. The Swedish have a knack for that. I think sometimes we become a little bit afraid of our 'stuff' (at least I do, I hate clutter), but it looks so nice to see a space that's lived in. Thanks for sharing.

You are oooh so right, the styling is superb! makes you want to move in inmediately!!!

Who doesnt wanna live the "fresh juice & toast, natural light, stylish plants, impeccable lighting and super cool clothes" life :)

you do such a good job stalking. this apartment completely does it for me. oodles of inspiration in these photos - it's exactly the way i want to live. i gotta get busy.

I adore it. It looks so very beautiful, I could move straight in. But could someone put a couple of small boys in there and 2 crazy cocker spaniels so I can see what happens to the beautiful white floors. I have wanted to paint my floors white for such a long time but am still way too scared.

I am drooling over this. White can be so so so amazing. And the mix of everyday things. Inspiring! Vackert Vackert! (Beautiful). ;-)

Hee, funny to think of this as actually stalking. They are some really gorgeous shots. If I knew where to look online, I might stalk these style listings as well!

Oh my, this might be the most perfect space ever!

24 Feb 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJane Flanagan

If you are afraid to go white and your house has lots of natural light, try black. With the right rugs and accessories it can looking amazing.

I have saved almost all of these photos to my inspiration folder! This place is just wonderful.
