stockholm apartment

We used airbnb again to find the wonderful apartment we stayed in in Stockholm.  It was a bit outside of the city, but really only about 15 minutes from downtown by subway and it was very quiet at night, which is always nice when you're tired after a long day of sightseeing. 

The apartment was all white with lots of bright, colorful, quirky touches.  Very modern Scandinavian.

Excuse our mess of stuff on the kitchen table.  I should have cleaned that off before I took the photo.  Whoops! Check out the framed pieces of paper - what a good idea to create an inexpensive collage wall.

It's kind of hard to understand what's going on in this picture, but this is of the bedroom.  There are mirrors on the wall behind the bed, creating almost almost a negative space headboard, if that makes any sense.  Leaning up against the bed is the air mattress I slept on.

Again with the decorating of windowsills. I love that big decanter.

A wall of bookshelves was opposite the couch.  I loved how she color coordinated her books.  She had pretty good taste in literature, unfortunately, all of the books were in Swedish!  I did however spend plenty of time looking through a ginormous Ikea catalog.

Again, if you are heading to Stockholm and would like to book this apartment, I would be happy to tell you how to find it online!


  1. Wow, that is such a pretty apartment. I've never done airbnb...

  2. I know; I loved it! I definitely recommend airbnb - our experience was great.
