House Tour | Vintage Swedish Flat |

Thursday, December 6, 2012









I love how the emptiness of this flat allows for your imagination to wander, yet, there is just enough within it to show off how entirely charming it is. Have you seen that movie another earth? I just recently watched it, and, well, if there is "another earth" and my body double is up there, I hope she is living a charmed little life in "another sweden" in a sweet little place such as this spending her days lingering at sidewalk cafes and traipsing around wearing cute little sundresses and heels. Of course I wouldn't trade in my charmed little life here with my leggings and boots and adorable children which is why I have to imagine it in this parallel universe sort of way. Where do you live in your parallel universe?

PS I should mention if you haven't seen that movie it's nothing like my comparison here, it's much more of the melancholy variety.

  1. I love this flat. They clearly don't have children. My kids could fill that floor in 30 minutes.

  5. Love it love it love it. I love that velvet wingback chair. Speaking of movies, you've seen Aladdin, right? You know when the Genie's jaw drops and it makes the sound effect of a heavy ton weight hitting the floor? That's the sound effect that played in my head when I first saw these :)

    And you know where I'm going to say my parallel universe self lives, right? Right. PARIS.

    1. ha! have i seen aladdin? only 500 times! which means i am clearly replaying that scene in my head right now. and if i knew what anyones answer was going it be, it was yours xo

      ps my body double is also a very wealthy philanthropist and i visit paris very often (i have sweet little flats all over the world and when i am not staying them i let others visit and stay for free). i am sure in our parallel universe we are quite good friends and take lovely holidays together ; )

  6. LOVE this. It's so clean and open - really helps to emphasize all the natural light.
    Isn’t That Charming.

  7. I haven't seen the movie and I'm curious now. :) White walls, large windows that let the sun light in, beautiful floors, it looks lovely just as it is and, yes, I love it how it plays with your imagination.

  8. Love the whiteness. I'm quite taken that they've decided to keep the old cabinets while renovating, that is something that is not commonly seen. I'm also impressed that the thermostate is angled from the middle, quite a genious thing for the curved window.

  9. Beautiful bones! It's nice to get a chance to see blank space once in a while...makes filling up the voids that much more challenging!

    Also- I’m hosting a décor-to-dress giveaway where 3 winners will WIN a fabulous frock of their choice just in time for the holidays! Hope you’ll stop by to enter the contest!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

  10. I haven't seen that movie (may add it to my list to watch!!! darn, why did I unsubscribe to netflix haha). I love the vintage blue scale - I waaaant one :( the wood flooring - gorgeous, chandelier - beautiful, pops of blue (even in dress) - perfectly fitted.

  11. I heard about that movie- going to have to watch it. My Other Earth me lives somewhere where it is warm all year long and has a lot of money to enjoy the good weather (maybe Brazil).
    I'm a fan of pocket doors and exposed radiators, so this place gets my vote.

  13. A very cosy place! I haven't seen the movie. I never thought about living in a parallel universe. It's an interesting idea. I will need to think that one through today.

  14. Oh wow. I love this space. I have a friend who is moving into the most delightful renovated mid-century modern house (tomorrow!). She's freaking out a bit. Loves it, but is worried that it's too small, yadda yadda yadda. I met her last week when the house was empty and fell in love. I lovelovelove empty houses. LOVE. They make my husband melancholy. To me they're filled with possibility! I hope she's calmed down a bit. Oh, and we're anxiously awaiting word about a potential trip to Sweden this June, and these photos have made me even more anxious! I want to know, and I want to go!

  15. Ahh, I like thinking of myself in a parallel universe. I like to think that she's a grunge rock star. Or a pilot. There's a lot of possibility out there for her

  16. I like your parallel universe. Can I be your roommate? I love that gorgeous little chandelier in the living room. Hm, my parallel universe would include either a fabulous apartment in New York (off Central Park) OR a cozy cottage tucked into the woods. Talk about opposites. As it stands, I currently live near the beach. I'm just full of contradictions. ;)

  17. This is so pretty! Not sure if I would be able to live with so little furniture, but the openness is quite refreshing. I am in awe with the wooden floors paired with the bright white walls. So lovely!
