Waterfall factory

Breathtaking. Simply breathtaking. A lake, a waterfall, a 1950s factory refurbished into a minimalist space that reaches out to a wooded wonderland through walls of glass. References to its industrial past are complemented by the sparse interiors but what could be cold is brought to life by that view. Fitout and furnishings are simple. The art graphic and strong. Breathtaking. Simply breathtaking. (Thanks to Lisa for the link.)

Dark green with envy

Green with envy that I can't own this gorgeous Malmö apartment and green with envy that it has escaped into the blogosphere already. Imagine my surprise when it turned up on my daily must read blog The Diversion Project this morning before I had pushed the publish button.  Jules we have good taste :) This is so what I would want for my own home and my mind is eased with my dark colour selections. Wood, white and dark. Delicious. Just wish my own place had such amazing floors and ceilings. A truly special apartment via Bolaget.

White wonder

Just when I think that I've had enough of scandi white I come across another apartment that inspires me. Bright and beautiful, bijou and brilliant like a little jewel. A tiny home with heart via Stadhem.

Red house

It may be Swedish white but it's red as well. Like a shiny apple just ready to be plucked from the tree. How adorable is this 1905 pilot's house in Smögen, Sweden. Ship's pilot obviously ;) Apparently this particular pilot had travelled to America and included gingerbread touches here and there that make it a little different from its fellow houses. Seaside haven. Tick. Historical house. Tick. Scandi white and painted wood. Tick. Relaxed lifestyle and something just a little bit different. Tick. Not just one but at least three ceramic stoves including a green kakelugnar that I need to fondle. And to top it off it's RED! Ticks all my boxes. Definitely immigrating to Sweden .... or at least visiting for the summer. For sale here. If only I could buy it!

Swedish home

Why are the Swedes so good at getting it right? Casual yet stylish, comfortable and cozy, family focused and perfect for entertaining friends. Yesterday's apartment prompted Anna to send us a link to her sister's home which is currently listed for sale. What a lovely house! What a shame to be selling! I'm sure that the owner is heading on to greener pastures but still .... imagine leaving those posts and beams, the rustic floors and ceramic stoves. Love the open plan living, dining, kitchen with clever central storage and the attic! Swoon! I'm seriously thinking of immigrating to Sweden.

P.S. Anna's sister is called Linnea and you can see more of her lovely home on her blog Linneas Blommande Värld.
