On Monday I featured the beautifully calm Stockholm home of Emilie and Fredrik Carmén. And I also promised to share their new home. So vänner (friends), here it is! The family moved to one of Södermalm’s oldest houses which was built in 1640 by a bar tender by the name of Hans Marschalk. It’s fair to say the bones of this Stockholm pad are incredible: staggeringly high ceilings, eye-catching grid windows, ornate panelling and an original parquet wood floor (I can almost hear that wonderful creak as you walk across it!). The family have opted for a calm, earthy green-grey-beige palette (Almond beige by Jotun) – which they’ve applied throughout the home with the exception of one of the children’s rooms. I have been musing over whether she / he point blank refused! Blue it is then! Industrial Blue to be precise 🙂 Pull up a chair, pour yourself a coffee and enjoy the tour!
A shaggy rug sets the scene for a cosy sitting room complete with a Normann Copenhagen circus pouf and IKEA sofa (it’s the same deep, Söderhalm one I have!).
The fabulous Monkey Lamp* by Seletti looking cheeky in the corner!
This organic light grey linen bed set* is similar.
I love the Industrial Blue in the children’s room above (with the IKEA desk and storage units painted to match), especially with the pink-brown tones in the chair (from Ikea believe it or not!) and rug. My Allie has the same ‘apple apple‘ print in her room and tells him all her secrets. Apparently, he’s a very good listener – despite the small ears!
All in all, a wonderful, elegant home, don’t you think?
Oh, to have bones like that to play with.
Is there anything that stood out to you about Fredrik and Emilie’s home?
It’s a hive of activity in my own home today since we’re leaving for the cottage today – and guests are taking over tomorrow. #SOMUCHTODO! Gaaaaah! I’d better go and help poor Per! It will be so nice once we finally arrive and can put our feet up a little. I hope you’ve got some nice plans for the weekend too!
Due to the school summer holidays, I’ll be winding down the blog a little to three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) until August. I promise to make the posts I do create EVEN MORE inspiring!
