You might have a bone to pick with me. I promised a Finnish home tour today. And then time ran away with me and I haven’t been able to give that blog post the attention it deserves – so please bear with me, I promise to share it on Thursday. The good news is, I have another fine apartment up my sleeve – and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed! Located in central Stockholm, the majestic property dates back to 1885 features large airy rooms and a fantastic ornate wood ceiling as well as parquet floors. The owners just happen to have fantastic taste too, filling the rooms with unique design pieces and small treasures. How they can bear to part with it is beyond me, but it’s now on the market and waiting for a new owner. Could it be you? 

The star of the show: an incredible ‘Vril skål’ (burl bowl). I only discovered these recently via my good friend Sofie who just returned from a trip to North Sweden. I thought they were so beautiful I ordered two online immediately. They are handmade by North Swedish craftsmen using burl – a woody growth found on the trunk of a spruce, birch or other tree.  
It almost pains me to share the details as I love how unique they are at present (does that sound terrible?), but since we’re all friends, I’ll let you in on a secret…. you can source them online here* and here – although you’d need to be quick they are vintage one-offs! Otherwise keep an eye on Etsy for the latest birch burl bowl listings*.  Just don’t tell anyone! 

The sofa is by Melimeli – the founder of whom’s home I once featured here

A hot trend right now – painting ceilings a darker tone – like this! I love the lamps in this room, including a pair of Panthella* and a Snoopy. I also spy a fabulous Dora Maar vase* by Jonathan Adler and an iconic Karin armchair

All in all, such an incredible space! Oh, the things I could do with this place if it were mine. 
Could you imagine transforming this into your home? And what did you think of the Birch Burl bowl? 
Wishing you all a great day!
