Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

7 years to perfection

Remember this post about interior stylist Katarina Grundströmer, where I wrote that I was sure we were going to see more of her soon? Well, here she is again, this time in Sköna Hem, featuring her summerhouse! When she bought the 1940's house in 2002 ago it was a small red house with a loo in the garden. Now it's a fully renovated white house with an extra 30 sqm, filled with inherited or self-designed furniture pieces, and looking great!

    thank you, emma. i finally know what the feature is all about. like all things on skonahem, i can only admire pictures; i do not speak the language. thankfully, you allowed me to appreciate and understand this feature more than just looking at pictures could. :)thanks!

    Lovely bathroom on the last pic but don't be fooled by the tap. We ahve that same tap and i hate it. It is hard to use and because there is no levers ( you just twist it) when you run hot water you have to use a towel to turn it off as its so hot. A design faux pas!

    What a fun and creative home. And without that 'flea market feel'.. I love how clean and fresh each room feels and love the little tokens from nature.

    The bath looks very inviting and also, I am totally in love with the copper pendant!

    Gorgeous post as usual Emma.

    Does anyone know what bathtub that is? Perhaps this one http://www.signaturehardware.com/product9181 ? If that is indeed the same tub, I had no idea that looked that nice. I always assumed it would look much to thick and "plasticy".

    That bathtub is absolutely killing me. So beautiful!

    I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm Danish, and all the American interior design blogs just don't appeal to me. It's nice to see some Scandinavian design, clean lines and lots of white.

    You can add me to your list of fans.
