a measure of harmony

i love all the beautiful details in this lovely light-filled family home in rörsjöstaden, malmo, which i spotted over on swedish estate agent bo-laget.

situated in an old shop premises, the three bedroom apartment has the gorgeous surfaces throughout that are sympathetic to the building’s 1920s origins; white oiled parquet in the main living areas, polished limestone in the kitchen and luscious mint green tiling in the bathroom. it was the huge magazine stacks on the window seat and curated gallery wall above the cosy sofa that really won me over though, along with that subtle flash of duck-egg blue on the lower third of the walls, accentuating the ceiling height and overall spaciousness of the flat.

i also love the mismatched modern ikea pieces interspersed with midcentury icons, providing a masterclass in how to seamless marry old and new in perfect harmony. it’s all about stripping back and celebrating the refined details of a piece, keeping things simple and uncluttered with a few choice accents.

if only i could live like that..!

le voyageur sans bagage

for me, the most agonising point of any overseas trip is that torturous wait by the baggage carousel after a long flight, on an absolute knife edge waiting for a glimpse of your suitcase gliding its way around. that immediate, almost…
