Stockholm, Sweden, is a very old city. It goes back to the 13th century. I think the Swedes are Masters when it comes to mixing very old with very new. Whether it is culture, cuisine, or design. They just do it with such ease. And the contrasts make for very beautiful homes. Look at those old moldings and the fishbone hardwood floors. (Wall-to-wall carpets are always a no-no!) Whenever I go to Lagerlings to look at wonderful apartments for sale in Stockholm, I just sigh and drool. See more photos from Lagerlings here.
