Fab kitchen and sitting room in a Swedish apartment

Hello! And happy start to the week to you! The gloves were out today in Sweden (sorry for this continuous obsession with the weather...I am British after all!). BRRR! I could see myself retreating indoors and padding around this beautiful Gothenburg apartment today. I particularly love the kitchen with it's blue cabinets (you can find similar leather door handles here), light grey marble work surface, white walls and original parquet floor. And the touch of mid-century in the sitting room too. What a great space, don't you think?!

Thank you to everyone who participated in my weekend give-away. The competition closed at midnight GMT last night. I will contact the winner of the fab book 'Holiday at Home' today via e-mail.

Have a lovely start to the week!



'Holiday at Home' weekend give-away!

This give-away is now closed. 


I love getting a surprise package in the post, don't you?  When the bright coloured tome Holiday at Home by Jason Grant (Harde Grant) appeared in my mail box earlier this week I was more than happy. This is one special interior book. Not only does the summer vibe ooze from every page but the images (shot by Lauren Bamford) are a blend of cool Australian interiors, exteriors and holiday snaps which will make you feel like you want to emigrate down under. The good news is that after reading the book you won't need to as it's packed with tips on how to bring that relaxed holiday feel to your own home.  And I'm giving away a copy to one lucky reader this weekend! For more details on how to enter see below. In the meantime here's a sneak peek.

The Greek island home

As I mentioned earlier on the week I'm still clinging to that summer feeling (are you?) - on colder days I'm even dreaming about summer 2015 (cue slight obsession with my Pinterest travel board!)! One country my family and I have our sites on next year is Greece. Oh how I'd love to rent a Greek island home. Which is why I was so excited to find this beautiful cottage on the Greek island of Lesvos (thank you Style Files!). It's the home of Australian author, photographer and designer Claire Lloyd and her British artist husband  Matthew Usmar Lauder. In 2007 Claire and Matthew fled the rat race for a more simple life on Lesvos, how inspiring?! You can read more about their adventures and see more pictures of this wonderful home in Claire's book 'My Greek Island Home'. And the good news? They have a guest house for rent...wow, wow and wow! Greece 2015 anyone?!
