A Charming Blend of Old and New in a Stockholm Home
It’s a school holiday this week in Southern Sweden and I feel like I’m the only one up, tapping away on my laptop in a cafe by the sea. The clocks went back at the weekend which means darker nights – which in turn means the warm glow from lamps, candles and log fires. Further North, snow covers the ground and the birds taken flight to warmer climes. It’s a time for cosying up at home by the fire, reading and taking long walks. And I’m all for it! 
This lovely Stockholm apartment is located in ‘Söder’, a hipster part of town with some of the Swedish capital’s best cafes and restaurants. Even so, when the temperatures hit minus, being tucked up under a blanket beside the kakelugn (tiled masonry oven) is the way to go! Keep a look out for personal touches, a blend of antique and designer pieces as well as the beautiful entrance way. 
I hope you find something in this lovely home to inspire you!

Two tone kitchens are where it’s at right now. Here upper cabinets in wood add lots of warmth to the kitchen.

Space is limited in the city and many get creative to make space for the entire family. In this aprtment, the children’s room is divided into two using a series of closets.
This bunkbed is next level (literally!). I actually haven’t seen one like this before. Does anyone have any tips on where it might be from?

The other half of the room is small (yet cosy) – with enough space for a charming antique bed!

I love these grand early 19th century communal entryways you find in Sweden!

Confused about the layout? Here’s the floorplan as shared by Historiska Hem:

Glossary: sovrum – bedroom, Kakelugn – fireplace, allrum – living room, bad – bathroom, kök – kitchen, Gardrob – wardrobes.
I love the exterior of this property too – classic Stockholm! 
Is there anything that stood out to you about this lovely apartment? 
Why not cosy up for a while and see a few other incredible apartments from the Swedish capital here: 
Right folks, the autumn sun is shining and I’ve got two children (teenagers) here at home waiting to get into action (actually they’re still asleep so they don’t know that yet, but they will be!). 
Wishing you a great start to the week!
