This week two contrasting homes hit the market in Gothenburg and they were both styled by Swedish stylist Emma Fischer. Thursday I posted a dark coloured Gothenburg apartment styled by her and today I show you a light studio apartment in soft earthy tones that she also styled for Bjurfors. Together with photographer Alen Cordic she is forming a new inspiring duo when it comes to home styling in Sweden. I love the natural, light and cozy feeling of this studio apartment which perfectly shows that living in a small studio apartment doesn’t have to be a bad thing!
Lovely contrast in these images by the amazing photographer Petra Bindel for Muuto with the industrial location and the soft Scandinavian design pieces. Muuto is a Scandinavian brand that wants to deliver a new perspective on Scandinavian design with with forward looking materials, techniques and bold creative thinking. You can see items by Muuto a lot in the Scandinavian interiors that I post here and on Tumblr. To see their entire collection just go to the Muuto website.
Wait a minute! Haven’t I seen this dark Scandinavian apartment before? Yes I have! I have posted an apartment with the same layout and in the same building before but that one was in a very bright & white style, now Emma Fischer (of Emma Hos) has decorated this apartment in Gothenburg in very dark tones for real estate agency Bjurfors. Even though I love bright Scandinavian homes, I prefer the way Emma Fischer has decorated this apartment in these dark and warm tones. Which style would you pick? You can see the white and bright version of this Gothenburg apartment here on Gravity.

This lovely small Stockholm apartment hit the market today trough real estate agency Skandia Mäklarna. The apartment is decorated in various shades of grey, including the dark grey doorframes, which gives the apartment a slightly dramatic look. The only other colours come from the tan leather sofa and the green from the many plants that fill this small grey apartment. Absolutely love the styling of this small grey Stockholm apartment, who says grey is boring? It’s super cool!
I am dreaming myself in sunny Australia at the moment while looking at these stunning pictures of Haveli House by Louise Roche. Haveli House is a bohemian Indian and Indonesian inspired luxe cottage in Byron Bay, Australia and is ideal for a relaxing and quiet getaway. This stunning cottage is decorated with items from the owner’s own shop, so if you feel inspired by looking at these pictures you know where you can get the items and create your own relaxing bohemian space. But even better is hopping on a plane to Australia and rent this fabulous bohemian Byron Bay cottage on Airbnb.
In a town in Belarus, not far from Minsk, stands this apartment for a young family designed by Studio Nordes. The idea behind the design of the apartment was that it had to be timeless. During the renovations they managed to restore the original features of the building, such as the marble fireplace and stucco ornamentation and by removing the walls they created one large living space that is still clearly divided in three areas: a living room, dining room and kitchen. The apartment is decorated with a mixture of modern pieces from (f.e.) Tom Dixon and Lindsey Adelman and classic midcentury pieces from Charles Eames and Gio Ponti. Counterpart to the vintage pieces in the living room is the modern black kitchen that makes sure you can’t just call this a vintage apartment. It’s an excellent example of how well vintage and modern design go together and it sure is a timeless, elegant and modern apartment.
