The charming Swedish family home to steal ideas from

charming Swedish family home

I really hope you enjoyed your school years, otherwise you might be a little creeped out by the idea of living in an old school. Because this charming Swedish family home, with the best kitchen, is sitting in a converted old school in Västertorp, a southern suburb of Stockholm.

This lovely apartment opens into a large living room with a beautiful kitchen and plenty of room for both family life and guests. It is a very airy, bright and vibrant.

This successful transformation from school to residence is really inspiring, I especially love all the windows. For the light but also because I love to decorate window sills.

Remember my article about small children’s rooms?

Here is a great idea on how to include storage space. In style and in a natural way. Using the space under the bed is clever and the lovely colours plus cute leather handles make it really chic.

With the blush pink walls the petroleum colour really shows off!

The school was designed in the 1950s by architect Curt Laudon. A man who designed many school buildings, both in Stockholm and around the country. Västertorp’s school is a classic 1950s building that preserves much of its original appearance, but has been supplemented with balconies in connection with the renovation.

What do you think? Living in an old school building?
