Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Emma Olbers lives here!

Emma Olbers is one of my favorite Swedish designers, so I was really happy to find this feature from her home last weekend! I have been dreaming of a sofa bench (plywood DIY) like the one in her kitchen for years now, but haven't had the space for it. Perhaps in my next home...

    PS: underbart smart sätt att höja ett bord till arbetsbänkshöjd! Me like. (Är det detta som kallas för spam? ;-))

    Ok, I'm thinking now about exchanging our kitchen lamp against simple light bulbs as in the 3rd picture ... Thank you for the inspiration!

    Love the big envelops everywhere! We made a plywood bench in our big window to make a reading nook - it's probably my favorite thing in the apartment now :)

    Dear Emma-

    I have been following your blog for a year now. I just love it. Thank you.

    I have a quick question about all the white floors I see the photos you post...some are obviously painted wood, but some look like epoxy? Is there a certain kind of flooring epoxy that is typical in Sweden? I want to do something similar to my floors.
