One of the things that first drew me to Scandinavian design all those years ago is just how clever they are at transforming cramped living spaces into practical, beautiful homes. Of course it helps that Scandinavian style is often characterised by light colours and clean lines which lends itself nicely to a small space. But there’s also something else at play: their ability to whittle furniture down to the bare necessities and strike that perfect balance between form and function. And this lovely one room studio high up in the roof tops of Gothenburg, Sweden is a fine example. Enjoy the tour!

Anyone else considering down-sizing after seeing this?! Or perhaps you have a large attic space that needs converting? Either way, I find this space so inspiring and would quite happily turn in each night in that little bed nook, how about you?!

It’s a public holiday in Sweden today and we’re gearing up for the arrival of guests from the UK. of course, me being me I can’t stop at making beds, I have to dive into town to pick up flowers, some curtains as the bedroom is way too light in the mornings and some other KEY bits and pieces (cue: major eye-rolling from Per!!)  Anyway – we can’t wait! 
I hope you’ve got some fun plans for the next couple of days too. I’ll be stopping by tomorrow with a final post for the week, and I think it’s a goodie too – see you then!
