Fantastic Stockholm family home in an old school

So excited to share this amazing place with you today. This fantastic Stockholm family home was a school in the 50s. Today artist Emilia Ilke lives here with her partner Fredrik and son Igor.

The place is bright and spacious, very Scandinavian, and is enhanced with lovely flea market finds, DIY projects, and lots of Emilia’s art.

The apartment is situated in HägerstensÃ¥sen, one of Stockholm’s urban, southern suburbs. The couple moved in here from their previous place which was very central because they fell in love with the amount of windows. Personally I think it is a very smart decision because you do need a light filled place to survive the dark months in Scandinavia.

Let’s have a peek into this striking family home:

Lovely children’s room for their little son Igor. Of course mum Emilia added some of her artwork to make the room even more fun and ‘special’!

Loving the heigh ceilings, minimalist interior, and still cosy atmosphere.

“I draw, paint, cut out shapes and move around everything until the pieces find their places. Often I work at ten works at the same time.” says Emilia. And this light filled space is perfect for her and definitely very inspiring too.

Emilia’s story is very interesting to me. She used to a visual merchandiser for weekday for around 10 years and decided to study fine arts. Because she wanted to create and find her own space in the art landscape. Today she is experimenting and not focused on one technique or genre. I guess with time, ideas, and impressions it may come around one day. And if it doesn’t it is perfectly fine too. Because we may not be perfect at one single thing but really great at various…
