modern mid-century apartment

I came across this incredibly beautiful apartment the other day. It’s in Stockholm and belongs to the prop stylist Joanna Lavén. I love the modern mid-century style with a  Scandinavian touch.

If I could choose one apartment to move to right now, it would be this one!

my bedroom

The bedroom is not finished yet but it’s almost there so I thought I’d put some pictures up.

Romantic Bedroom

I love that we have two windows with amazing green trees outside.

I wanted a calm and romantic vintage feel in the bedroom so I mixed lots of white with wooden vintage furniture. I found the wardrobe on ebay for £50 and I think you’ve seen some of the mid-century chairs before as we have four placed at different spots in the flat. The trunk is my grandfathers, it has real labels from actual Atlantic trips. The cute little bureau is my grandmothers and the other day I found old insurance letters from the 30s in it!

This was my inspiration for decorating the bedroom, a picture from Zara Home

No what’s left to do in the bedroom is white curtains and some pictures on the walls. I bought an old map of Paris when I was there earlier this year, same map that my parents have had in their home ever since I was little. I just have to frame it an put it up. But why do these things always take so much longer than they should?

50s dining table

We’ve now finally bought a dining table for the flat! I found it on ebay and it’s exactly like I wanted; a mid century  Scandinavian design teak table. Seats 4 and 8 if extended. It’s going to be delivered on Saturday! These are the pictures from ebay.

I think I’ll change the cover on the chairs to something else, shouldn’t be too difficult.

No more eating on a blanket on the floor and we can finally invite people over for dinners!
