A Swedish Gem

I absolutely love this apartment, it's set in a beautiful old building, have a wonderful view over the city and has two levels. Sure it's on the small side but the two different levels makes this home so fun, and that little reading/relaxing area? So cosy!

I'm off to London shopping for the day, it's times like these when I really hate how huge & heavy my DSLR camera is! I've got a shopping list (Oxford Street - UO Sale, Zara Sale -> Selfridges -> New/Old Bond Street -> Sloane Street -> China Town)... so little time so much to do! :)

Fabulous apartment, it makes me want to start renovating our attic :-)

Have fun shopping, I am dead jealous as I used to work just off Oxford street which was pretty lethal as most of my wages went on clothes....

Those pictures are so pretty! Ack, I'd love to live in an apartment that looks like that.

Shopping in London is always fun. I was there last fall and I went to Oxford Street quite a lot!

The first image is just beautiful - I wish I had sunlight steaming in like that to my room.

Nothing beats a crisp white base - everything looks good against it.

Agree, small but stunning and fun is this flat.
Want to chill out in the cosy reading area.

Enjoy your shopping day.

I'd kill to live somewhere like that! It's gorgeous. I'm determined to make my house in the future so lovely, no matter how hard it is haha. :)

Have fun shopping in London, I agree about the slr camera thing, I normally take mine when I go out with my friends, and it tires me out, and I never end up buying anything! :(

xyyan said...

nice and cozy apartment.. love it too!! =)

fromtherightbank.com said...

Gorgeous! That first photo is just heavenly. Look at that window!

I know what you mean about cameras being heavy. I've been using my iphone more and more because I hate being weighed down but it takes such crappy pictures, I always regret it later(!) Have fun in London!

My favorite area of the home is the reading loft. :)

Sal said...

That reading nook with the pillows by the giant window? I would never leave it, if this were my apartment!

Dream Sequins said...

I'm so bad. I love Oxford Circus for high street shopping and my friends stay away. It must be like a friend coming to NY and wanting to hang out in times square. LOL.

Have fun in LON! I think I'm heading there in a month! YAY!

ALO said...

Natural light is soo lovely. Would lovelove to have a lofty area with a window.. but then I'd probably never leave. :)
