What does your forever home look like? Is it OK to have a forever city home and a forever weekend country retreat?! A girl can dream, right?! If permitted, my forever city home would have bones just like this beautiful Swedish one. Think sky-high ceilings, stunning architraves, double ‘spegel’ doors and original parquet floors. Aren’t they lovely?! Swedish visual merchandiser and design student Cajsa Berndtsdotter has worked with the colour and furnishings to make sure that they positively shine too. 

The plant in the window of the dining room has been placed on a plinth to make it even taller and work with the height of the window.

Tall upper cabinets use the full height of the room (which work fine if you store little-used items higher up).

One of the beauty of high ceilings is having the space for statement lighting which lower ceilings don’t allow for.

I have seen this light so many times but my mind has gone completely blanket, can someone remind me what it is so I can add a link?!

A low almost invisible shelf painted in the same colour as the wall is ideal for magazines, plants speakers etc.
Painting walls a darker shade (these are ‘neutral grey 6000) helps a room with high ceilings to feel cosier and also allow the cornicing to pop. I also love how Cajsa has used curtains in the same colour as the wall. Curtains really are a home’s best friend – they help to dampen sound, reduce drafts and make the space look cosy (and they can hide a multitude of sins!) – total winner! 
Source made-to-measure linen curtains online here*. The bench is from IKEA. 

Barely there IVAR cabinets from IKEA have been painted in the same colour as the wall for a cleaner look and feel while the beautiful original door has been painted in a contrasting white for a spotlight affect. 

Such an inspiring home! And although we might not have features like this to play with, there are still so many wonderful ideas to take away, don’t you think?

Is there anything that stood out to you?

See more of Cajsa’s home here.

I’m in a bit of a rush today as we’re in the middle of a renovation (I’m sitting here amidst complete chaos and can barely breath for dust, plus I can only feel three of my fingers as we had to turn the heating off! But I haven’t missed a weekday blog post since 2011 and not about to because of a little dirt, cold and chaos!). Oh and I need to pack for London  – eeeeek! Hurry!

Have a lovely day friends, hope you’re a little more comfy than I am today!
