A beautiful house for sale

When I show homes for sale, it's usually apartments. Apartments are smaller, and it doesn't require as much work to get them up to standard. But this beautiful house is really wonderful renovated and furnished. I could move in right away.

Norm Architects' Christmas

These photos from Norm Architects also show that a Christmas in soft color schemes can be truly beautiful. These photos are actually behind the scenes shots from a Christmas table that they decorated for Danish magazine Bo Bedre.

Nordic winter

I love this home, decorated for the holidays! A soft color scheme works even if it's Christmas.

Grey everywhere

Grey truly is THE color this season. And now Rörstrand present their classic dinnerware Swedish Grace in a new grey color called sten (stone). I love grey, so I don't mind that it has become such a buzz around the color. More grey to the people!

Poster Le Boeuf Bourguignon

I bought a cheap clipboard from Ikea a few weeks ago. Until today, I didn't know where I'd put it or what to put in it. Today I decided that it would look great on the worktop in the kitchen. I love the beef chart below, and it would look amazing in my clipboard, but it's a bit too expensive and since I love graphic design, I made my own poster from a recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon. I haven't printed it yet, but I'm already super happy with the results!

Dining area

I haven't told you yet, but my boyfriend and bought an apartment in Stockholm, which we are moving into in June next year. I'm really looking forward to it, but I feel a bit sad leaving the beautiful southern part of Sweden. Anyway, I've started looking at some new furniture, and of course I dream of beautiful design furniture. But I think it's possible to get the same feeling with less expensive furniture as well. These are my inspiration photos for our dining area, and although I wish I could afford Wegner's wishbone chair, I think these chairs from Ilva have a similar feel, without feeling like a copy. The chairs to the right reminds a bit of the popular Eames chairs, which I also long for, but with a more humane price. However, I’m not sure if I find these a bit too close to the original design, for me to feel excited. What do you think?

Inspiring styling

Almost every day, I check through the inspiration images on Hemnet to see if there are any new and inspiring apartments for sale. Not that I'm about to buy a new flat, but because I love to see how they've styled them. My favorite real estate agent in Sweden is Fantastic Frank. Their styling is always inspiring and innovative, and I have shown you some of their apartments before, for example here. Today I found two apartments for sale by Fantastic Frank, both equally inspiring. Which is your favorite?
