The transformation of the Swedish space with blue doors

Edit Artikel
Hello! For the second time this week, a home has re-appeared into the blogosphere like magic (the first was the Swedish island hide-away). This time it comes in the form of Swedish stylist Johanna Bradford's former home in Gothenburg - featured here back in 2012. It's fun to see how the interior has transformed - moving from a relaxed look with bright splashes of colour to a modern blend of light wood, white and cognac. I love how the floors are a mix of white gloss, light wood and dramatic black too! But most excitingly of all, those signature blue doors remain intact! Got to love them?!

Wow! What a space?! So full of character and charm! And so many ideas to steal (for example I love the idea of storing white candles in a simple brown paper bag). 

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Items I know and love: sitting room - house doctor molecular light, Beni Ourain rug, cognac leather pouf, Butterfly chair, My Guide to Bombay print. Bedroom: Hay polygon quilt in powder, grey linen bedding. Kitchen / dining: Marshall speakers, this fab industrial pendant lamp from the 1950's is similar to the one over the kitchen table (try this one too).

The clothes rail (anyone know where it's from?) and the fact that my new sneakers have just arrived in the post (love them, soooooo comfy!) have got me thinking about fashion blogs / instagram today -  do you have a favourite? Lately I've been loving Happily Grey - Mary has such a beautifully simple style and the photography is stunning!

Have a lovely day!

PS In Scandinavia they looooove liquorice - I've never been such a fan have you? BUT I have to say I received a surprise package in the post from Lakrids by Johan Bulow Danish purveyor of 'the world's best liquorice'. And you'll never believe what happened?! Yup. I loved it. It was coated in yummy chocolate and beautifully packaged, which always helps of course!
