Shelter7, private apartment for rent in Ghent, Belgium

Shelter7 is a private apartment and meeting space for short-term rent, located in the historic city centre of Ghent, Belgium. The three level house has been beautyfully renovated and furnished with a mix of vintage and designer furniture (


with names as Joe Colombo, Mathieu Matégot and Arne Jacobsen) carefully selected by Frederic Hooft and accessories by Veva van Sloun, from the online concept store I/Object. The interior architecture is also a mix between classic and modern, with old wood staircases and floors contrasting with clean lined concrete and metal.

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].
