Timeout Tuesday – Stockholm here I come

I am so excited as I have now booked my winter trip to Stockholm.  So I’m gemming up in anticipation – first up on the inspiration list are Swedish interiors magazines Hus & Hem and also Skona Hem.

In Skona hem I came across this great post on the Straw Hat Factory by Oscar Properties and Andrea Martin-Löf. It’s the remodeling of a straw-hat factory in Stockholm into 39 apartments. The new occupants will have gorgeous views through large industrial windows across Stockholm. Plus some serious character with old elevator doors, solid oiled wooden floors, beams and cast iron pillars. Looks seriously gorgeous.

In Hus & Hem the summer home of Jonas Svensson and Tomas Åkesson in Österlen caught my eye.  Which is kind of ironic given how cold it’s got the last two days. They turned a run-down house into a weekend and summer bolt hole with ample space for socializing and overnight guests. The style is simple and understated and therefore relaxing for it.

I also fell in love with this Swedish Townhouse I saw on nicety. I think it was the sheepskin and the log/branch/half a tree in the hallway that did it for me. I also love a blanket when I’m sitting on the sofa in winter. It’s a great black and white interior.

    That Swedish townhouse looks divine. I love the colours… those muted greys are heaven. And I'm glimpsing a fabulous Swan chair in the "soft" image – swoon.

    I haven't been to Stockholm and so want to go. I'm sure you must be looking forward to it 🙂
