Tjena! I thought we’d nip to Sweden’s capital city for today’s post and check out the recent work by Refine Design Studio. What do you say?! The Swedish design studio created this incredible space for one very lucky family who are returning home from overseas. The family were keen for the apartment to combine Swedish design with subtle influences experienced during their time abroad. The design worked with the spectacular 19th century bones and full ceiling height (imagine?!), while also adding elegant, contemporary design pieces. Clearly, these pictures have been (beautifully) styled for the shoot, but can you imagine returning home and unpacking all your books, clothes and other belongings here?! Heaven!

This is one of my favourite tables right now. It’s the Palais Royal designed by Anya Sebton and Eva Lilja Löwenhielm for Asplund. Isn’t it fabulous? Understandably, it’s making waves across the interior world right now.

It’s a fairly small master bedroom, but what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in clever furnishings – and has everything you might need: plenty of storage, black-out curtains and compact bedside tables. Loving the contrast between the Lampe Gras 214 wall light* and linen Ghost headboard – perfect! 
We often have friends and family over from the UK, and since it’s usually for a couple of days at a time, they don’t need an entire wardrobe – a simple hanging rack like the one below is ideal! I found a great DIY post here in case you’re considering one too!

What do you reckon? Could you imagine moving into this space and making it your own? I certainly could!

Check out other places in Sweden’s capital city here (love Amelia’s home full of books and Lovisa’s stunning apartment!).

Have you ever been to Stockholm? If not, it’s an absolute must but definitely wait until the summer so you can venture out to the islands too!

Haj så länge!

PS this has got nothing at all to do with Scandinavian design – but have you see ‘A Star Is Born’? I was in bits!! Brilliant though!
