A few years ago my son got married and moved out of his little apartment in my mother's house. I got the chance to redesign the barely 400sq feet place and turn it into a nice guest apartment.
That summer my husband and I were travelling in Scandinavia so I got to immerse myself in the style and get a lot of inspiration. I even brought some treasure home, like the gorgeous copper lamp hanging over the (IKEA docksta) dining table.
Cushions and decorative items - like the candlesticks and the paper bird hanger - were collected from a variety of sources (like HEMA in Holland, IKEA, Trendsetter) and I had great fun collecting items in the chosen color scheme of white and coral.
Here's a wide-angle photo showing the livingroom in its totality. The door next to the big plant (and the modern art from Nepal) leads to the bedroom, the door near the table leads to the kitchen.
Here's a view of the kitchen and another detail shot of the sideboard.
... and some before/afters:
Unfortunately I don't have any images of when my son lived there - the change from the "young man's cave" to the light and airy new space would have been much more dramatic!
... only the painting ist still in its old place (also modern art from Nepal!) ...
