Angles from a former culture centre

Thursday, 28 February 2013

There are two key things I'm drawing inspiration from in this lovely 18th century former culture centre in Stockholm. First, the way the books are piled high and used to add colour in the sitting room. And secondly the rustic workman's bench at the end of the bed. Of course the rest of the space is pretty nice too :)

I've actually just ordered two workmen's stools from this fab online vintage shop and patiently (read: anxiously awaiting) their arrival, I can't wait! Perhaps the next item on my list will be a workmen's bench for the end of the bed.

Any ideas you're looking to steal?

Have a lovely day!

  1. Really liking this apartment! I think it's really nice to have the books in the living room to add color - I'm scouting for a nice low cabinet to have in my living room to display books and pictures that have been in storage since we moved in a year ago!

  2. We recently stayed in a little B&B that had 2 miniature workman benches in the bathroom and I fell hard for them! I have been trawling antique and vintage stores ever since so of course I stalked the link you posted. I love this house, the white floors and that beautiful sofa really stood out for me.

  6. Oh, I really like the books on the floor. We used to have stacks of them under a console table in our old apartment because we didn't have enough shelves and then we ended up liking the look of it. Whatever homes you feature on your blog I always love them.
