Vintage love

Jo and I are still in long weekend mode trying to recuperate from all the chocolate and general bad-for-you food that was consumed so I leave you with this fabulous home I spotted on Elle Decoration Sweden's website. It is vintage Swedish with a twist. Instead of pale wood against a white backdrop this home is filled with teak/mahogany tones which really pop. With some classic mid-century chairs, funky lighting, industrial and rustic touches it's pretty spot-on in my books. (styling: Edin Memic Kjellvertz, photos: Andrea Papini)

A church conversion in Sweden

Thank you Thomas for sending us this link (via Fastighetsbryån) to this wonderful church conversion currently for sale in Sweden. On a frosty winter day it looks absolutely magical! Despite only having a couple of rooms, the ceiling height and lightness makes it appear so much larger. Yes, living in a converted church like this is still my dream. And this one may now have topped the list as my favourite.

Boho, rock chick, Scandi granny

It's a bit like Cochella meets William Morris or Swedish exposed brick meets Bob Dylan. I'm going to call it boho, rock chick, Scandi granny. Think David Hamilton photographs come to life with an iPhone and a flat screen TV. A warmer and, may I say, more welcoming progression from the washed out, monochrome, Scandi had a holiday in Bali look we've been seeing for a couple of years now. Hats off to the home owner and the stylist  of this real estate listing. Yes I have a new Swedish estate agent crush ... Entrance Fastighetsmäkleri. Unfortunately this townhouse has sold but there are plenty more lovelies on the website.

Stalking 1

I'm stalking in Stockholm. An apartment with those old Swedish building bones we all salivate over. You know ... tall windows allowing light to stream in, double doors to fling open as you progress from room to room. It's missing the traditional kakelugn stove but there is a bath tub in the bedroom (in case you need more than the usual white tiled Swedish apartment shower room), a walk-in closet and a terrace. Link here while it lasts via Eklund Stockholm New York.

Why Frank is so Fantastic

It's just a box, a simple cookie cutter studio apartment. Tiny living/sleeping room, entry, bijou kitchen and even smaller bathroom. Yet I want it. Why? Because after the stylist and photographer have finished with it I can't take my eyes off the photos, scanning for covetable objects or clever ideas. I'm already daydreaming that it's my Stockholm pied-à-terre . That's why Frank is so fantastic. Can't have it though. It's sold. Via Fantastic Frank.
