A Stunning Swedish Apartment with Festive Touches


With the end of the year fast approaching, I'm looking forward to taking some time to reflect on all the highs and lows of 2020. I'm so grateful that the styling work has picked up again over the last couple of months, but I'm equally thankful that I have finally learnt how to slow down. I've taken stock of the challenges I've faced in the past around trying to do too much, namely, juggle the blog with styling projects, and have come to terms with the fact that it isn't humanly possible to post on here five days a week while carrying out product sourcing, styling (often photography and editing) and content writing all on my own. Last week I had a big location shoot and for the first time in over eight years, I put the blog to one side to focus on this full time, without any of the guilt I have felt in the past. Well, maybe a little guilt, but I am making progress! For my loyal readers, I hope this answers any questions you may have around the sporadic nature of my posting of late. As I talked about in this recent podcast with Natalie Walton, my focus is on quality, not quantity, and I have also been working on some other design projects. I love that this is a continually evolving process, and I can't wait to share more of the styling I've been working on.  

I haven't started decorating for Christmas yet, but seeing inspiration around the web is definitely providing motivation. I've purchased a few new paper decorations, but I'm still on the hunt for a tree as I've decided after last year's allergies we need to change to a faux version! The tree is always the hero of our Christmas decorating, but as demonstrated in this beautiful Swedish apartment even small touches bring a nice festive feel.

The apartment, located in a building built in 1902, has been fully renovated with respect for the original architectural detailing. This includes the high ceilings, beautifully restored stucco and new wall mouldings created in the same style as when the home was first built. The dark kitchen island anchors the bright and airy kitchen, while soap-scrubbed wooden floors run throughout the apartment providing a distinctively nordic feel. 

I love how the curved brick wall adds a sculptural element, as well as warmth and contrast. The master bedroom is a calming oasis with layered linen in soft natural hues and a touch of travertine on the bedsides with the ferm Living Arum table lamps in cashmere.
