Two lovely Swedish kitchen tours

There's nothing like a warm, cheerful kitchen to brighten up mornings (and cosy-up evenings). One of my Mum's friends calls the kitchen 'the engine room of the house' - so true don't you think?! To round off the week I thought we could take a tour of two Swedish kitchens. Any Swede will tell you that this is a very classic shape for a kitchen in a city apartment - (eller hur svensk kompisar?). And yet these two spaces have been decorated and organised with subtle differences - both lovely in their own way. The first belongs to interior and food stylist and owner of shop Vintage Fabriken - Linda Hansson and the second apartment is currently on the market through Stadshem. Could you imagine enjoying a slow weekend breakfast here?

I especially love the colours in the first kitchen - with the green, yellow and blue - so warm and inviting. A few tips on where thing are from - 'Willow boughs' wallpaper by William Morris, the children's chair is by Tripp Trapp, RANARP wall/ clamp lamp, oatmeal linen table cloth, Rörstrand mon amie tea cup,   white marble mortar and pestle, Le Sac paper bag, blue kitchen aid.

The second space is also lovely - so calm! Source vintage chopping boards here, This is a great source for vintage bread bins and tin boxes. If you're a fan of wallpaper you'll like the rest of the home too - check it out here.

Other links I like from around the web today:

How cool are these fun black and white prints for children's rooms. In fact - this entire children / Mum blog is pretty great (love these kids sunglasses - might try to squeeze into a pair myself!).

Love these DIY mid-century planters - project for the weekend perhaps?!

With all this snow outside my door I'm thinking tonight could be a cosy one on the sofa eating this brown ale ice-cream with salty caramel and honeyed peanuts or perhaps pumpkin cookie butter ice-cream. Mmmmm!

This home in the outskirts of Malmö is for sale - I'm tempted to go to the viewing on Sunday - could you image the potential?!

I hope you have a really great weekend (up to anything fun?). See you Monday!
