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!



A cottage in the Stockholm archipelagos

I don't know what the weather's like where you are but here it's starting to feel....er.....dare I say it....Autumnal. So today I thought I'd add a little sunshine here on the blog instead. And if I close my eyes this rainy, windy Tuesday morning I can dream I'm at on this beautiful waterside cottage. It's the fabulous home of one of Sköna Hem blogger Åsa Myrberg of @mycasa on Ekerö in the Stockholm archipelagos. If the beautiful, light filled and relaxed interior doesn't do it for you, the setting certainly will. Summer anyone?

What an incredible place to spend long summer days?! The Stockholm archipelagos really are fantastic too.

For more Scandinavian summer cottage dreaming click here - warning, you'll need to pour yourself a cup of tea first - there are hundreds of them! (the home above might come up first, if so, scroll past it).

I'm off to The Conference in Malmö today - anyone else going? Last year's was so inspiring!

Have a wonderful Tuesday.



A super stylish get-away in Northern Sweden

I hope you had a great weekend?! I'm often receiving mails from readers asking for suggestions of wonderful places to stay in Sweden. And today I found a new tip - Sågverket - an oh so cool youth hostel / conference centre in Northern Sweden. Described recently in Residence magazine as Norrland's super stylish hang out, Sågverkat is a got-to place for romantic weekends, creative conference or simply somewhere to relax and get-away from it all in a stylish environment. Personally I'd go there just to enjoy the decor and scenery alone how about you?! But we all need to be quick, it's up for sale. Anyone sitting at their desk this Monday morning feeling like a new challenge?!

Tempted?!

Today is my eldest daughter's first day at school. I thought she was so big until I dropped her off at the school gate this morning and she suddenly looked so small. I hope she'll be OK.....

And I hope you have a great start to your week too!
