As some of you know, I have been in the slow process of redecorating my apartment but have often felt disheartened about the size of my apartment (which is not actually that small by Stockholm standards). These pictures from the lovely home of Josepfine Hååg at 20kvadrat remind us that we can have a beautifully styled home in a small living area. I love the flashes of nude and grey and the photo wall, not to mention extremely envious of the grey artek stools.

Hope you guys are also inspired to make small living spaces work!!!

Wednesday Interior Inspiration

Several months ago, the owner and founder of my favourite interior stores, Artilleriet, put his apartment in Stockholm on the market, and shortly thereafter, the internet was flooded with pictures of his inspiring and eclectic home. Apologies if you have already seen these pictures but I just really wanted to share them with you guys. My favourite items are the Batwing chair, the Thornet chairs, and the David Ehrenstråhle guide to Bombay (Print). I especially love all carefully placed quirky little details.

What are your favourite details about this apartment?

Home additions: linen and ladders

Investing in homewares can feel like a neverending job. Although it is difficult (and we are guilty of buying plenty of junk!) proper investment in just a few things will make all the difference to your home/room. Today we are dreaming of these french flax linen sheets and this accessories ladder. Although, not everything has to be expensive, these cushions are currently on sale for $19.95 (may have just purchased 2 of them…) and A Merry Mishap has a great post on a DIY ladder.

I have been a great fan of interior stylist Lotta Agaton, for some some time, and she has worked her magic yet again for the latest string campaign. These pictures just make me feel of a white swedish winter (which has just arrived in Stockholm this weekend!) Hope you are all having a wonderful sunday wherever you are.

DIY book sculptures

DSC_1339

Book sculptures have been a favourite styling piece among several scandinavian interior stylists the last few seasons, but you would be surprised how easy they are to make. I have probably made about 10-15 in total and have used them as styling pieces on my shelf, desk, or windowsill.

All you need is:

Old books (I tend to use thick paperback books)

Scissors

If you have some spare time this weekend, why not give it a go. The “diamond” book sculpture is the easiest to make: simply fold each page in the book the exact same way (as pictured below). If you want to, have a go at the other book sculpture (what I refer to as) the “Sydney Opera House” sculpture – simply fold every second page in half (as pictured below)

I would recommend starting from the front to the back. You can either cut the covers off the books or leave them on.
