A perfect place to get that beauty rest :)

I have always had a great passion for history and things with an air of the past. Without history, we would live in a confused present without a permanent foundation. I live in an old wooden house and I’m mighty proud of. In Gothenburg, you can find some real antique bargains. We have antique dealers as well as flea markets. I like to go there often to soak up the atmosphere of the old stuff that is waiting for a new home.

The most beautiful type of interior design, of course, is the right balance between old and new. One can have an ultra modern luxury apartment, but without the possessions that have a soul and personality, the home is dead and stereotyped. Even just a few old things such as an antique couch or chair are all you need to make a home beautiful and alive. Too much old stuff can make your home feel dated and more like a museum. It’s balance that makes all the difference :)

Have you bought any antique bargains recently??… Tell us!

Have a great day!

Within interior design, I love the combination of old and new, a marriage of history and modernism, romanticism meeting minimalism. In addition, I have a burning passion for crispy silks, dark chocolate and long baths with a fragrance of lavender.

  1. I love antiques too. I like to imagine the stories behind every piece and think some’ll rub my way ahahah

    We are starting to pay homage to it and sharing. Because of hard times in the past I think people tended to ressent even the objects and much prefered to get rid of them completely… now, with vintage crazyness and a somehow more peaceful look to the past we can enjoy those pieces and even grab some… still a long way to Gothenburg, though.

    Happy Antiking, Love!

  4. I swear I’m so malleable, looking at your images makes me want to floor my home in bleached wood even though I’m about to do it in a dark wood–it’s just so light and airy! Love the crystal chandelier, it’s one of my fantasies to have a giant one hanging down into my living room!
