Beautifully presented, though!
A house we lived in and would have liked to buy years ago (they wouldn't sell) has just been completely renovated, which has been very interesting to see as we pass there about once a week ;o.


At least they got the colour scheme right! Nice trip down memory lane :)


I see nothing on the link, am I the only one ?

I like the opened kitchen too, it's a good idea ! I have quite the same thing for my living room, it's a pleasure to open an entire wall when the weather is fine.


Jub - I also can't see it any longer. It might have sold so they removed it. I'll edit the post.


Hey Benita!
Do you happen to know what kind of varnish (pigmented oil? they used to get the white/palish floor? That's the kind we wanted to use to brighten up the birch parquet.

Thanks a lot! xxK


Hi Benita,
I have been happily following your blog for two years or so and feel that you have helped me get to know a little bit about life in Sweden. I know this is off topic - I am getting the chance to visit next week for work (Stockholm University, staying at Sheraton near the main station). I am looking forward to it, but the weather gods seem to be against me and it looks like it will rain, rain, and rain. I will have sunday afternoon and all day wednesday to explore and am wondering if you have any suggestions for specific stores to visit or touristy things to do in the rain?!



I wonder if anyone knows the name of the designer of that rounded-corners-table.


Muyserin - It looks like Superellips by Bruno Mattson.


Monica - Welcome to Stockholm! Have you seen my little shopping guide? http://www.chezlarsson.com/myblog/2011/12/stockholm-shopping.html As for something touristy I recommend Nordiska Museet (where I used to work) http://www.nordiskamuseet.se/en Also check out Gamla Stan (the old town)if you have a moment without rain. Actually if it's nex week wednesday my waeather app says it won't rain that much. The worst weather seems to be on Tuesday :). Have a great stay!


Oh the memories! In that kitchen so many times with "fika" when Märtha and Wille were Babies! Love this post.


Daria - Don't know what they used but here's a product that seems to do it. Check out the 260 pickled oak. http://www.minwax.com/wood-products/stains-color-guide/


Thank you for your help. How does one find out these things? Or are you simply superinformed? :)


I was happy to recognize that stylewise, your old apartment resembles ours. My boy is just a toddler, and I hope when he get to Wille's age, we as a family will have progressed to a place that resembles more your current one … :)


Muyserin - Yes my style has evolved a bit since back then :). At the time we had no money whatsover and dumpster dove basically all our furniture and the rest were hand-me-downs. Also these photos were from right after we moved in, it slowly evolved from there and did look "tidier" when we left.

As for the table, it's quite a famous one for us over here. Had it been another one I'd probably not have known :).


Love the balcony you had. But really prefer your garden now ;)
Here prices are also going down incredibly.


I'm shocked about the price thing. Did average income litteraly exploded during these years?


caro berlin - No, but Stockholm city living prices have!
