Quirky interior inspiration for the weekend

I do love to show home tours (you can tell by the hundreds of Swedish, DanishNorwegian, Finnish and International homes in my blog archive!) but just occasionally I come across images from a company which are so beautiful and inspiring that I can't resist sharing them here too. Take Olsson & Jensen's autumn/winter 2014 lifestyle images for example. Olsson & Jensen is a Swedish company, based up the road in Helsingborg, selling vintage furniture and items for the home in Sweden and beyond. They also seem to be specialists in creating incredible spaces! There's something unique and quirky about all of these rooms - whether it's the mix of contemporary and old, over-sized pendant lamps or oil painting gallery walls. I'm taking my inspiration from here this weekend.

I would love to re-create the sitting room in my home!Anything in particular you'll be adding to your Pinterest boards?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and see you Monday!

A small space with a big personality

I spotted this Gothenburg apartment over at Stadshem this morning and I thought - ooooo. It's perhaps not everyone's cup of tea but there's something about the black leather sofa, plants and cool art and mid-century mix that I love (as you know I'm a big fan of Scandinavian mid-century in my own home). It's also sightly off beat - the rug is askew, they have used a reclaimed stool as a coffee table and simply piled books on the floor for a more relaxed feel. It's hard to believe that it's a one room flat too!

What do you like most about this space?

It's not an easy look to replicate since many of the items are one off finds. However, second hand black leather sofas are often coming up on Lauritz or LiveAuctioneers and you can search for portrait paintings on Etsy.

If you're in or near Malmö there are some great places to pick up mid-century pieces - once a month Nirvana opens it's doors, and they also have an online shop. If you get lucky you can also pick up cool pieces at Sopstationen (this is my ruse to get you to Malmö! I hope it's working?!).

I hope you have a fab Thursday! 

A lovely light filled Swedish apartment

This Swedish apartment has everything I look for in a space - wonderful high ceilings, original wood flooring, big double doors and lots of natural light. It's also been beautifully decorated with a colour scheme of white, grey with a splash of yellow in the sitting room and blue in the bedroom - it's amazing what a cushion (like the Dot-Hallingdal and Large Geometry ones shown here) can do to a space too don't you think?! And a mix of old and new furniture.

Did I mention it's also for sale?! More pictures here.

Today I'm actually at my desk (as opposed to the stairs, my bed, the sofa or anywhere else I might sit and work). I was amazed (and excited) to see my office space appear in Grazia UK magazine the other day thanks to the book 'Design Bloggers At Home'. It made me realise I should probably sit here more often!!

Where do you sit and work?

I hope you have a lovely day!
