A lush and light filled family space in Gothenburg!

A lush and light filled family space in Gothenburg!

Hej from Gothenburg and this gorgeous family space in the beautiful neighbourhood called Haga.

And what a wonderful light filled space this is. It is stunning and I love how the old owners gave it this lush look with lots of  greenery. All rooms are bathed in light through the beautiful high windows and up to those high ceilings, that are full of original features.

In brief, Haga is a bit ‘the village in the middle of town’ and the car-free streets are lined with small cafes and shops. A charming area of traditional wood buildings and cobbled streets.

But right now we want to see this awesome family place, because it is so inspiring and inviting:

In essence, this beautiful bedroom with an original wooden floor, rosettes and the famous William Morris wallpaper is a dream!

Those shelves are probably a must in every Scandinavian interior! Not so surprising since they are very practical, very ‘chic’ and just never look outdated…

Together with the Vintage desk and chair combo, it makes for a really lovely kids corner!

Together with: Shelf system*, wooden toy mixer*, storage baskets*, Children’s bed*& rug*

Imagine sitting here for your meals! Close your eyes and just imagine…

And totally in love with that corner!

And I am so intrigued to finally go ahead and get some new chairs for around our own dining table. Totally love the idea of having a beautiful and mixed selection of chairs.

Since we already have lots of colourful plates, glasses and other tableware that are mostly coming ‘alone’ which makes the setting always fun. Maybe we should go wild around the table too…

What do you think?

An enchanting boy’s room in grey and yellow

enchanting boy’s room in grey and yellow

Hi! I know, it is not Tuesday today but I will share one awesome kids room with you anyway. First of all, because special rooms (it is one amazing boy’s room, trust me!) do deserve an exception. And second, because I am also introducing you to my friend Ursula from Room to Bloom.

Ursula is based here in London and she is running a lovely children’s interior studio. I am pretty sure that you have seen her work somewhere before. And lucky me, she will share her projects from time to time here on Paul & Paula with us. Yay!

Welcome Ursula, so excited to have you and so excited to share your work here. Starting with a very lovely room for a boy called Finn:

Today I’d like to share a grey and yellow bedroom I designed for a little boy called Finn. I designed his room in tandem with the nursery for his baby sister, which you can see here.

In both rooms I worked with the existing carpet and wall colour, as the rooms had recently been decorated, yet they’ve turned out very differently.

Finn had outgrown his nursery and was ready for a change. His parents wanted a stylish room with a playful touch. A house bed was the starting point: it makes a good first bed as it is low to the ground and feels enclosed, creating a snug corner and focal point for the large room. I anchored the bed with an abstract two-tone mountain-scape backdrop, turning into a border on the adjacent wall. And I like how the border continues over the built-in wardrobe, almost hiding it, whereas previously it had been a stand-out feature.

I chose grey bedding to blend in with the decor, which gives a restful feel, and added some fun cushions to liven things up. Cotton ball lights, easily accessible book ledges, a play table and animal decor create a more playful atmosphere.

On the other side of the room, locker style cabinets offer storage for more books and toys. There is a toy chest for larger items. As Finn is really into his cars, we added a road rug, which also breaks up the expanse of the floor a little. Finn now loves playing in his room – mission accomplished!

Thank you Ursula, in love with the room!

Cool Edwardian family home in London’s Crouch End

Edwardian family home

Hello! Today’s Interior Tuesday will be a local one and I am showing you this fun and interesting family home right here in London. In the Crouch End area, currently for sale, and with a very cool space in the attic.

A lovely five-bedroom house that includes a wonderfully bright artist’s studio on the second floor (such a great space) that is situated in an equally lovely area.

In the heart of London’s Crouch End, in a quiet residential street, where you can find many shops and restaurants. Not to forget, that to the west is Highgate Wood, to the north is Alexandra Park and Muswell Hill, and to the south is Finsbury Park. Such a green area!

So let’s have a look around this Edwardian family home with lots  of original features, a contemporary edge, and lots of light:

Those large bay windows, original cornices, fireplace and the lush garden! So dreamy!

It really is the perfect mix – Edwardian and contemporary in equal measure.

Unfortunately I have no idea who the owners of the house are, but it is clear that they have a very good eye for interiors. And for colours…

By the way, the garden is home to an array of mature trees and shrubs. A beautiful wisteria, olive trees and a eucalyptus.

I am in love with the art work in this children’s room. And all the colours.

It is so good to see a room filled with so much inspiration, creativity, and fun! On top, this room is bathed in natural light…

And here is the extraordinary top-floor artist’s studio, the perfect mix of old and new and such a great spot!

Built-in shelves line the walls, six velux flood the space in natural light, and I can totally picture setting up office in here…

80’s family villa outside with lots of surprises in the inside

scandinavian kids room

Don’t you love a good surprise? When you see this house from the outside, you would probably not think to step into this beautiful haven of a family home.

Karin and Håkan are lkiving here with their two children, and they were convinced it would be their future family home the moment they stepped inside. The house is located in a sought after residential neighborhood, called Danderyd, in the suburbs of Stockholm.

Today the house is a lovely mix of modern and vintage. Many fleamarket finds meet design classics in a white and light filled setting. Very Scandinavian and very charming…

That wooden cabinet is gorgeous and I love the gallery wall with the different prints, frames and little objects. A great inspiration!

Have you ever seen a private kitchen that has completely tiled walls and floors? It is interesting because this could easily look like a canteen. But with the plants, soft appliances, old-fashioned fittings and some open storage it feels very homely.

By the way, the couple took down the wall between the kitchen and living room and installed a bigger kitchen onto the large dining room.

And then the children’s room. Very romantic, very fresh and decorated with a lovely eye for detail. I love that little sofa in the corner, such a cute spot to hang out and read a book.

More from Stockholm?

How about this family home or the one with the castle in the kids room?

Scandinavian inspired big family home in Down Under

Scandinavian inspired big family home in Down Under

One busy home it must be down there in Adelaide. Four children, and all still quite young, roaming around in this Scandinavian inspired big family home.

You can find the purity and love of the Scandinavian style are in every corner, a modern and incredibly bright home that looks so inviting. Light filled big spaces, natural materials and subtle colours throughout…

And it is especially nice to hear that the project was planned around the nature outside the house. The family wanted to make sure that all trees were safe and only then they started to plan…

I love a big open kitchen. Usually my favourite place in a house, and especially as a big family definitely the place where ‘everything’ happens.

Find: wooden highchair*, white kids chairs from IKEA
