Let's do lunch

Yes? Somewhere with great food and atmosphere? Lots of people to gawk at. Lots of design ideas to steal from the restaurant fitout. Cool! I'll meet you at Usine in Stockholm, a restaurant concept by designer Richard Lindvall. A choice of bistro, cafe and bar areas all with a Scandi minimal meets industrial vibe. Concrete, steel, leather, wood and tiles are on the menu. Delicious.

Endless summer

Spring seems to have shot through already and an endless summer beckons. I'm feeling cooler just looking at this refreshing, white bedroom by Swedish designer Richard Lindvall. Like a long, cold drink on a hot, hot day.


Södermalm Heights 

I have much love for the eccentricity of London design agency Minale + Mann. This project is another favourite of mine. M+M was commissioned to refurbish this dilapidated 18th century apartment in the centre of Stockholm’s Sodermalm district. The apartment was restored to its former glory, with tiled Swedish fireplaces and stunning original oil painted ceilings. Furniture was custom fitted, and the kitchen and bathrooms were finished in Swedish sand ash to enhance our eclectic mix of antiques and artwork. A 70s jukebox was even converted into a whisky bar! (Previous M+M features here and here)


Apartment living at its finest

Apartment living really isn't for me (at least while I live in Ottawa where houses are as affordable as condos) but the units in this building in Stockholm are spectacular. Originally a residential building, then converted into offices, the crew at Oscar Properties are lovingly restoring the structure back into apartments. Turn of the century architecture, with sophisticated luxurious spaces that have a Parisian vibe. This first kitchen is SO dreamy. The cabinetry colour, marble, gold and copper accents...YUM.
P.S. I am short on pet entries this week - if you would like to submit photos please send them to kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net. Thanks!

Fluff the pillows

Is the job of an interior stylist merely to fluff the pillows? I think not! But that is the cheeky name of the tumblr site for Swedish interior stylist/decorator/product designer Myrica Bergqvist where you can follow her work. I love these unpretentious and quirky spaces.
