Artilleriet Studio 

Pop-up shops, particularly those staged in apartment spaces, come and go with regularity these days. The concept is tried and tested, after all who wouldn't want to be seduced into purchasing beautiful goods in inspiring interiors. Just like shopping your fabulously stylish friend's house. One could almost be forgiven for yawning "ho hum" at the mention of another such retail space ... except this is no ordinary pop-up shop. Oh no the new Artilleriet Studio in Gothenburg, Sweden is so breathtaking that the old chestnut about moving into the shop and never leaving has never held so true. I'll even take the dog.

William Morris and a Scandi boho apartment

Just when I think I can't take any more Scandi boho, white on white, bleached wood and black and white prints hung gallery style on the walls, I'm reeled right back in. Except the apartments that have me pinning and filing away images are ones that are a little more grandma boho, arts and crafts meet scandi style with a touch of sage green. I'll put it out there. I think William Morris wallpaper is so hot even after 150 years. I love this kitchen. Scandi meets Morris' Pimpernel pattern meets stainless steel (?IKEA). Via Entrance Fastighetsmäkleri.

Not quite white

Still on my mission to show that not every Swedish styled real estate listing is white on white Scandinavian boho. How about a touch of Granny chic? Not crocheted rugs and silk boho lampshades Granny chic. More traditional wallpaper, shaker style green kitchen and of course those fabulous kakelugnar. Yes there are still bare floors, rustic bleached furniture, mid century classics, an Ay Illuminate clone and a bedroom that doesn't conform to my anti-white scandi code but it's not cookie cutter. Unfortunately for us this lovely Stockholm 2 bed apartment is sold. Link here while it lasts.

Moody Scandinavian

White walls seem to be getting a bad rap this days. All those insipid white walls. There is nothing washed-out about this Swedish apartment though. Moody greys add depth and character, acting as a foil to all the Scandi white. A small 32 m2 home with style and personality recently sold by Stockholm real estate brokers Historiska Hem.

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).
