    Historical gem :: an amazing apartment in Malmö, Sweden

     

    Nina Bergsten moved from Stockholm to Malmo lured south for a sales job at a fashion company in Copenhagen and finding a home is tale of luck.

    The old lady who lived here liked me and my boyfriend and thought we were such a nice couple together. She trusted that we would take care of her home, so we have been there for a good price. Otherwise we probably could not afford. “ As a bonus, there is also a little Skåne architectural history.

    The apartment was owned and designed by the architect Harald Boklund, whose works were influenced by Neo-Renaissance, Art Nouveau and National Romanticism.

    One of three gold mirrors that Nina has found the market in Clignancourt.

    The apartment’s very first owner was in fact Malmo profile and the architect Harald Boklund who also was the one who designed the whole house on the Great Nygatan at the end of the 1800s, a time when Swedish craftsmanship came with stucco, plaster angels, painted ceilings and hand-made ​​brick, a tenderness and care as is cutting through time – although there are architectural features that are not always appreciated.

    Interior design has always been Nina’s passion. There is a wonderfully crazy story about Nina visiting  the fantastic antique and vintage market Clignancourt in Paris, secondhand heaven for thousands of bargain hunters from all over the world. Among the bustling shops and fast-talking French salesmen in the vast market area in Clignancourt so she stopped suddenly with a pounding heart, struck by a startling and very heavy love. In front of her gleamed an enormous antique mirror, nearly two feet tall and almost as wide. After a few minutes of frenetic haggling, she found out to be owners of 60 kg old glass …

    “It was only then I started thinking about how I would get it from there, not just from the market but home to Sweden. I am one of those people who obviously have no impulse control, “says Nina with an amused laugh.

    white teepee

     

    This would have been the perfect escape when I was struck down with the flu last week,

    an inspiring space to rest, read and dream.

    Charming Hotel in Greece

     

    This breathtaking place is located on one of the most beautiful Greek islands - Mykonos.

    San Giorgio is a very charming hotel because its owners truly believe that “people are not seeking for luxury in a traditional definition any more” and offers to their visitors the fine taste of the 60s bohemian.

On purpose here was created a very special atmosphere that will make you feel like you are at the summer home of your close friends.
    And with the Greek $ crisis this maybe more than day dreaming!

    a breath of fresh, sea air… Cornish chic

     

    Hope Mousehole = House + Loft :: A dockside loft in a 17th century building overlooks the harbor in Mousehole, a tiny fishing town in Cornwall

    “the loveliest village in England” Dylan Thomas.

    “The most beautiful house in the country”

    Hope House is an indulgent haven by the sea, perfect to get away from it all. It has featured in numerous interior magazines and advertising campaigns.

    Owned by photographer Paul Massey, the interiors feature his trademark mix of rustic furniture in shades of gray, greige, and white casually arranged in a series of pristine white-painted spaces. He was on holiday and by chance came across the Porthmeor studios in St Ives.

    white house dreaming

     

    I’m drooling over this converted theatre in Monza, Italy by architect Piero Lissoni.

    It is featured in Elle Decoration UK April 2012 and is just so stunning. The high ceilings and open space gives it a grandeur of scale and style.
