Swedish dream home with a castle in the children’s room

Swedish dream home with a chalet in the children's room

Come in and discover this magical place situated in beautiful Stockholm, Sweden. This apartment covers a complete floor and the creative owners are Karolina and Erik Modig.

Karolina is a journalist, editor and author of two art books and her husband Erik is a researcher, author, advertising strategy teacher and artist. Together with their two boys, Elliot and Mio, they live in this very personalised colourful, eccentric and urban place.

I love the mix of colours, textures, old and new. A little urban jungle here and there, lots of artwork, DIY projects (kids rooms!!!) and allover a home that feels warm, cosy and lived in. In a good way! Because a lot of Scandinavian places look a little stale and more like catalogue homes than family normality.

The ‘castle’ in the corner of this fabulous children’s room was done by Erik. And together with the wallpaper it is truly a ‘castle in the sky’!

With all the details and decorations this is a real little sanctuary. A place to dream, to be creative and to play. Like out of a fairytale…

And I love all the plants. I could never imagine to live in a place without any plants! That greenhouse in the kitchen is so cool. And when you look around you will notice that there is always a plant sitting or hanging somewhere…

When you read the intro about the owners of this fantastic place you probably thought that they are very busy people. They are, I am sure. But try this – Most of the customised projects in the house have been done by Erik himself and help by his father and father-in-law. The built-in bookshelf, the castle in Elliott’s room, the huge kitchen table or the daybed in the living room.  Chapeau!

Another important factor for Karolina and Erik is art. You probably noticed that already as well. Together they wrote the book ‘Value of Art‘. There is some of Erik’s own art as well as works by artists he met during his gallery years.
