This über cool early 20th century Malmö apartment popped up in my feed yesterday via real estate agent Bo-laget – and I’ve been wondering who lives there ever since. And now, I think I might just have figured it out, super sleuth that I am! Remember this cosy vintage-inspired apartment of a Malmö Florist? Well, since then Sofie has been busy turning this beautiful apartment in the Rörsjöstaden area of town into her new  home. At least, I think so, as many of the fabulous pieces of furniture, lighting fixtures and art photography remain the same. I’m a big fan of Sofie’s unique style which oozes texture and a warm earthy touch – you should see the bouquets and floral displays she creates! Ready to see what she’s done with this 122 m2 (1313 f2) apartment? 

I love this mix of open and closed storage. One of my Danish friends Caroline Birk Bahrenscheer has developed beautiful shelving for mugs which has totally taken off and would also look nice here. 


I’m so curious about this table and bench, I’ve never seen this design before. Can anyone shed any light on the brand? Or perhaps it’s handmade? Maybe, I’ll reach out to Sofie and ask her – I promise to come back to you if I find out! 
I love the casual look of the gallery wall and piled books – it adds a wonderfully relaxed feel to the dining space (dining rooms can feel so stiff and formal sometimes, don’t you think?). 
You often see old brass candlestick holders like these in Swedish homes! I have one from Skultuna which has aged really nicely. But I can also recommend looking on Etsy for similar sets*. 

Textures galore!

If I had an old home like this, I’d definitely consider painting the doors, skirting boards and arbitraging in a dramatic colour, I think it looks awesome and adds so much drama and interest to a space. Are you a fan of this look too? 

How lovely! It’s fun to see a space with such eclectic furniture. Sofie has clearly taken their time to search for unique pieces. 
Is there anything that stood out to you about her home?
I really do hope it is her home now, or I’ll be so embarrassed! 
Take a peek inside other Malmö homes here – I’m so proud to live in such a creative city.
On a completely separate note, have you seen The Father with Olivia Coleman and Anthony Hopkins? Per and I went to see it at my favourite Art Deco cinema on Friday (i’s called ‘Spegeln’ and has armchairs and a little bar in the actual saloon!). For the first half of the film, I sat mesmerised by the set – the apartment was just so beautifully decorated, and I was fascinated by how the decor played a central role in the storyline. 
The entire film was incredibly moving, and really struck a chord with me as my own beloved Father passed away a month ago after a year-long battle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme GBM). This is the first time I’ve mentioned it here, I guess I just haven’t really been ready to talk about it before. I have to say, it’s been heart-breaking seeing someone so close and with such a brilliant mind – so clever, funny and kind, slowly decline. I do take some comfort that he is at peace now, even so I miss him every single day. In honour of my dad, this is probably the only time I’ll mention it – he hated a fuss and loved to keep things upbeat, I think that’s why he was such a huge fan of my blog and all my books! He’s always been my number one fan! 
My heart goes out to anyone of you currently dealing with someone with ill health in your family or who have also suffered a loss. I hope this blog brings a little bubble of escape to you each day!
