Architect-designed family apartment in Gothenburg

Architect-designed family apartment

Today’s family space was last owned by a reputable architect. And it is full of details, grand design, and clever use of space. You can find this city apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The floor plan is really interesting and I caught myself playing with some ideas on how to live in this apartment. But we left Sweden for a reason and instead of dreaming I better finish this Interior Tuesday.

It is very nice to see how the playroom just flows with the rest of the house. It is child friendly and sweet but still in the same aesthetics as the rest of the home.

Let’s have a little tour and see more:

Two sweet children’s rooms full of nostalgia, charm, and vintage finds.

Both rooms open up to a playroom that doubles as a desk area as well. Here, the children can do their homework, draw, or be creative. It is quite an interesting set up and I am sure a creative person can come up with more interesting ideas on how to set up this room. Or maybe take the middle wall out of it possible? Hmmm…

A star point goes to the kitchen. I just love the cosiness, that beautiful cabinet, the floor, as well as the plants and flowers. I can totally picture myself sitting there with a cinnamon bun and a lovely tea… will you join me?

More Gothenburg interiors? There is charming place or this very lush house!

paul paula blog

Did you do Halloween yesterday? We did and the kids nearly exploded of pure excitement beforehand… and we are not even really done yet. Tonight is Halloween Disco at school!

And then I quickly realised last weekend that the Christmas craze started. School fair, gift guides, advent calendars that need to be filled (on Monday I will share my 2019 calendar edit – mark your agenda!) and everything else that comes with the festive season. These last 2 months will just fly by… I feel it already.

8 irresistible pink children’s rooms

pink children's room

Promised is promised!

After last weeks beautiful blue kids room, I promised you to share some inspiring rooms that are pink. And not just pink, but enchanting and delightful. Because we can all agree, there is a degree of pink as well as shades that are really nice.

Therefore I went out and found a few gems. Adorable rooms that have either pink walls, or a lot of pink coloured accessories.

Let’s have a look at these 8 irresistible pink children’s rooms:

That pink wall in contrast to the yellow rattan bank is fantastic. Adding a few quirky accessories and cool prints and voila. No sight of kitsch, just fun!

Half pink, half white. And a simple decoration of this sweet nursery make it really sweet.

Vintage inspired room that proves that pink is still fun when you are a tween or even teen.

 

And what do you say? Pink can really be great…
Not that long ago it was quite a trend for interiors in general but I wanted to show you that thinking pink for kids room does not have to mean Barbie, Hello Kitty, and My Little Pony.

Delightful grey blue children’s room

Delightful grey blue children's room

How do you feel about blue rooms? I know that the pink aka girl’s version is often not so popular. Because pink! But what about blue? Personally I love blue. I think there are many beautiful shades and today’s grey blue children’s room is definitely one of them.

And I just noted down to find some great pink rooms in equally beautiful shades of pink to share with you. Coming soon!

Let’s head to Gothenburg and take a peek into this lovely family apartment. Large and spacious rooms in file, fine oak parquet flooring and beautiful high ceiling. A light filled space where even the small children’s room looks bright and airy.

scnadinavian living room

I have to admit that I sometimes miss our Sweden apartment. The space, the light, and the original features. We were so lucky finding this gem back then and call it our home for five years. It especially helped during the darker months of the year.

This weeks forecast is rather dull here in London and looking at these serene spaces lifts me up a bit.

If you would like to see more, how about this poetic family home or this special kids room?

Small nursery with big style!

Small nursery

Hej! How are you? Yesterday I booked a short trip to our last destination and could not resist to share this sweet family space from Sweden. With a small nursery that has the perfect mix of design and cosy.

And stepping in through the door of this home means being met by the famous Scnadinavian light and space. The apartment is located on the corner of a beautiful classic house and has nice windows and a balcony with a magnificent view of the city. I love the open generous living area, high ceilings, oak parquet, and original features.

Situated close to the Södermalm neighbourhood in Stockholm, the area is very family-friendly. It is quite but you also find lots of shops, restaurants, cafes and city links via metro and bus.

Come in:

Such a cute and warm room. It is a small nursery, but there is space for everything including some sweet accessories.

I am sure you noticed these beautiful crochet fruits and vegetables. Not only do they look adorable but they are perfect for role play too.

Of course I went out and did some research and found a great Etsy shop* selling them in fun sets.

The rest of the house is just as charming and with the same eclectic mix of old and new.
