Have you seen the ‘calm app’ which encourages you to stop what you’re doing for 15 seconds and listen to the sound of rain drops? The aim is to make you feel relaxed through mindfulness (but apparently people are getting stressed out from all the ads they’ve been sharing, which does make me chuckle!). Either way, when I find apartments like this one I get my own little dose of mid week calm – do you find this too? I’m not sure if it’s the soothing grey walls, the way the light falls or the soft, natural textures in the form of wood, rattan, leather and linen – but there’s something beautiful about this space high up in the roof tops of Gothenburg. I’ll leave you to enjoy the tour i lugn och ro (in peace and quiet)!

… and relax!

I love that it has a little balcony looking out over the inner garden. Communal gardens like these are really common in Swedish apartment blocks. They’re usually divided into unofficial zones which includes  somewhere to store bikes, a barbecue spot and a children’s play area. The apartment I lived in before also had a communal vegetable patch – so lovely!

Is there anything that stood out to you?

If you’re looking to create a calm oasis in your home too – here’s our guide to some of the pieces:


1. Marte Storage Cabinet
2. Object Blanc no 26 – Atelier CPH
3. Slit Table
4. Gubi Semi Pendant – Dia.60
5. Filton Coffee Table
6. CH23 Side Chair
7. Nicoline A. Milton – Adoray
8. STOCKHOLM 2017 Tray
9. Glo-Ball S1 Suspension Lamp
10. Cutter Bench 120

More Swedish homes in the archives include the wonderful home of a food blogger (check out the blue walls!),  the charming home of a designer and a vintage inspired home full of soul.

I’m just doing the final prep on my office make-over. It’s been a surprising amount of work – gah – (partly due to how much rubbish I managed to accumulate) but it’s nearly there now and I’m really hoping to share the results tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Have a lovely evening!
