Renovated Stockholm Loft

Last week I was approached by a guy at a party when I was taking a photo of a nice display on a bookshelf. It turned out it was his bookshelf, and that the part of the office I was standing in belonged to his company


Hementreprenaden. They are a company that helps you with your home renovations by hiring and coordinating all the handymen, figuring out the technical aspects and can also help you with decisions on materials and design solutions. Seems like a great service, and if you have ever lived through a home renovation, you probably know how valuable this help could be.

I had a look at their portfolio and fell for this bright loft apartment. You can see more of their work here.

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: [email protected].

    Thanks for this beautifull, ascetic interior. I can’t stand when sb says that black and white is boring.

  • WOW, what a beautiful space! The beams and the windows are so incredible!

  • Grymt bra tips om man ska bygga om här hemma!

  • that cosy corner does it for me! The couch & chair, bookshelf & those windows – perfect for an afternoon with a good book.

    Hi Emma,

    I’ve tried several times and on different days to comment on the Advent post – still not working for me. I wait for the page to load, etc.

    Just wanted to let you know that it still doesn’t seem to be working properly!

    On another note, I love that thin white ladder leading to the loft space in these images.

  • Precis så där vill ja ha mitt hus när jag blir vuxen!

  • Elin

    The posters – "Guide de la ville Paris" and "Guide to Manhattan" – are made by David Ehrenstråhle
