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).

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.)

Emma Hos update

Scandinavian spaces are perfect for a Friday. Super comfortable and casual and bright with the familiar touches like plants in every corner, white walls, wrinkled sheets, lots of side tables and black accents. The kind of spaces you want to crash in after a long work week. These spaces by interior designer/stylist Emma Hos are definitively worthy. (Find a previous feature of her work here).
