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?

Simple winter eating

DSC_1403

Since it is well and truly winter in Stockholm, here are some recipes perfect for such freezing days. Also perfect for a Monday because they require little to no preparation AND not too many pesky ingredients! Although the chickpea soup does need the chickpeas to be soaked the day before….so some foresight is needed but the soup itself takes minutes to prepare.

Chickpea Soup

Recipe: Goop

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry chickpeas
  • 6 cups of water
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • salt + pepper, to taste
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • bunch of cilantro to garnish

Read the further instructions here. Plus this is a Gwyneth Paltrow recipe so is of course super healthy (vegan/detox etc)…if you need any more motivation.

Carrot Soup with Miso and Sesames

Recipe: Smitten Kitchen

Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen is an absolute genius and if you haven’t already we suggest going to her site and spending a good few hours bookmarking some recipes! She has absolutely everything and writes instructions that are easy to follow (and also contain many hilarious anecdotes). Her carrot soup with miso and sesames is delicious and a little bit more exciting than your average soup. Plus, needs relatively few ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds (900 grams) carrots, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 regular or 6 small garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped or grated ginger, or more to taste (it could easily be doubled)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup white miso paste, or more to taste
  • 2 scallions (green onion/spring onion/shallot) very thinly sliced

Read the further instructions here. And finally, if soup is a little boring (or you have had way too much of it this winter) then here is the hot chocolate of all hot chocolates to try. Perfect for a relaxing Monday evening…

Spiked Hot Chocolate

Recipe: Because I’m Addicted

Ingredients

  • 4 oz (113 grams) good milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 cups milk (of your choice, thicker the better)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • Marshmallows
  • 2 oz (50ml) bourbon

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.

The day before Christmas

DSC_1209-2

Sorry that we have not been updating as regularly as we would have liked! We are both taking a bit of a break to spend time with family and do all those last minute christmas things. I ended up making more of those tiny cardboard christmas trees and I am really happy with them! Did any of you end up trying to make these at home?

Anyway, to combat the darkness in Stockholm right now I am burning all my favourite candles, drinking lots of christmas tea from Indiska, and reading a swedish novel today.

Hope you guys are enjoying your holidays and spending time with friends and family.
