It’s Friday friends – woohoo! I don’t know about you, but I feel it’s come around so quickly this week. I’m hoping to nip around the town on my lunch break today and visit some of my favourite design stores to celebrate (in a social distanced / safe kind of way, of course). My usual circuit always includes the Malmö store Olsson & Gerthel – which sells the most incredible iconic design furniture, mixed in with some beautiful pieces by local artists. It’s a total feast for the eyes, and food for the design soul! One of the co-owners – Nina Gerthel, lives a stone’s throw from the store, in her childhood home in the picturesque old area of Gamla Väster. Nina, an interior designer, is a firm believer in filling your home with pieces you love and that make you feel good and her recently renovated home is a fine example of this – and a wonderful extension of the design ethos and offering of the store itself. Ready to take a peek inside? 

Oh to have beams like these! I am always eyeing up houses in Gamla Väster when they come on the market,  but homes like this rarely come up (Nina took over this one from her parents).  
The other thing that struck me was the art – I love sculptures and Nina has really given them space to breathe so they catch the light and stand out. 
I was reading an interesting article the other day about how, when faced with a design conundrum and looking to improve a look, people naturally add things, when actually, the solution is often to take something away. ‘Less is more’  is an artform and one at which the Scandinavians excel! Something to think about over the weekend when organising / arranging your home!
Is there anything that stood out to you about Nina’s lovely home? 
Shall we finish off the week with a few other Malmö home tours? Here are a few favourites: 
Sofie’s home (owner of my favourite go-to florist): The cosy, vintage inspired home of a Malmö florist 
A local home in St Knut’s: A ‘mysigt’ apartment in soft, earthy tones
The home and studio of the wonderful girl I share my studio with: Carina Grefmar
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by this week 🙂
