Old Shop Turned Into Home in Malmö

A home out of the ordinary, isn’t that what we are all dreaming of? It could be an industrial building, a school house, an unusual architect designed villa, or like here, an old shop turned into an apartment, carefully renovated with many of the original details left. The huge windows and high ceilings make the already large rooms look even bigger, and the odd angles and nooks, together with the deep windowsills and original tiles in the kitchen, add charm to the whole space. I would move in immediately!

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at:
