Sandell-Sandberg Gotland Summer Nest

I love Gotland – in my opinion the most incredible island on the planet! Gotland  is part of Sweden in the Baltic Sea.  My family family spent 19 summers on this rural island and I love everything about this slice of paradise – the light, the scenery, the people and the rich culture. One day I will be back and have my own little nest. One day…

You can only imagine how I drool when I see this fantastic summer house on Gotland designed by the talented architects Sandberg and Sandell. I am speechless. What a way to let the magical Gotland light into your home. How absolutely breathtaking.

This is how I remember Gotland. Simply stunning.

My Love For Swedish Antiques

I love incorporating really old Swedish antiques with contemporary design pieces.

When visiting Sweden you will be hard pressed to find a home without at least one exquisite antique and a contemporary piece of artwork. That is how most Swedes like to decorate – by mixing several hundred year old pieces with modern elements. And it works with Swedish antiques since they are often much toned down in form, design, and color compared to some antiques from other parts of the world – without compromising the craftsmanship and quality.

Below are pieces from my own little collection.

Readers’ Nest Book Shelf

How fun is this bedside companion! The “Readers’ Nest” is designed by WIS Design for the Swedish design team – David Design. It is part of the 2009 David Design Collection.

This practical book shelf stores your favorite books right next to your reading spot and by utilizing the roof top, there’s no need for “Dog Ears”. Very clever!

For questions regarding the Readers’ Nest (price, availability etc. ) contact David Design in Sweden.

Purple Storage Cabinet

I consider myself very eclectic in my decorating style – and I love contrasts between the very old and the very new. I also happen to love the color purple  – so of course this image from Skona Hem made me jump – since it has all the right ingredients.

The fabulous storage unit “Vass Cabinet” is by the great designer Rune Claesson Koivisto. For further information contact the design store Asplund in Sweden.
