Mia's Serene Stockholm Apartment is Full of Texture
I forgot to say happy halloween yesterday! Here, it was absolutely tipping it down all say so we had some very wet witches and ghouls appearing at our door. Full cred to them for weathering the storm for a handful of sweets! 
With all this rain, more rain and then some, everyone except the ‘trick or treaters’ have been hiding at home under a blanket – and this is where I think Swedish homes really come into their own. They are just so lovely and serene – like an oasis of calm even on the stormiest of days! 
Mia, a psychologist, and her family have a beautiful apartment in Stockholm which is the epitome of calm. Think soft, natural tones, lovely paintings and floral displays. Plus the entire apartment is layered with texture in the form of natural materials such as marble, sheepskin,  wood, linen and a very fluffy rug! 
I hope Mia’s home leaves you with plenty of ideas for your own living space, I for one love the kitchen bench – such a clever way to squeeze in a table for four in a narrow space! 
Enjoy the tour!

Lovely!
The wall mounted desk is such a clever idea – you can find a similar one here*
And those of you who have been curious about where swedes store all their clothes (winter, summer etc) I hope this floor to ceiling closet has provided some closure! No doubt, there is some kind of extra storage in the apartment basement too – there usually is.

This is not in Stockholm, but I just stumbled over this ‘sofa make-over‘ Helen and I shot in her apartment   – it was such a fun day! 
Despite the calm home tour, it’s all a little frantic here today. I’m on the early morning train to the IKEA headquarters in the forest for a meeting, and then racing back as my youngest and I are heading to London later today to visit my mother, sister and family (it’s half-term here). Plus I am hoping to visit my wonderful editor from Simply Scandi magazine for whom I write a regular column. Guess what’s on the forecast? More rain of course! 
Hope you’re having a great week and that means your sunshine!
