Basic and clever Stockholm home

While I collect the thousands of impressions, thoughts and images I have from Stockholm Design Week and our Design Blog Tour I’d like to show you these photos shot in a very beautiful and cleverly designed Stockholm apartment by Imberg Arkitekter. The pictures aren’t new so you might recognize them already, but I believe the photographer, Pia Ulin, re-edited them for the feature in Elle Decoration, to make them a bit brighter and less moody. Perhaps to suit a bigger audience?
I actually featured this home on the blog two years ago already when it was for sale. It belonged to Sara Mortensen who is now part of Lotta Agaton’s team, and I heard she is now renovating a new apartment, so that will be exciting to see when it is finished!
I am still super impressed with the solution in the kids room here, and the kitchen is my idea of perfection, totally basic and simple but with nice details to warm it up a bit.

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].

    Wow, nice. I wish that I knew where that chair was from!

  • Gillade köksbordet, mycket vackert!

  • Love the kitchen!

  • Virkelig fed lejlighed. Jeg kan godt lide det hvide og sorte, der gør det ret minimalistisk, men samme tid gør de mange billeder, pynte ting, lys og puder lejligheden mere hyggelig. Køkkenet med de meget kliniske klinker er cool og lidt industrielt.

  • så stilrent o snyggt!
