Beautiful Swedish Airbnb

I promise you this is the last post about my recent trip to Sweden, but I can’t resist sharing few pics I took of the Airbnb we were staying in.

Design Shopping in Gothenburg #2

Hello, here’s the second part of my Design Guide of Gothenburg. I shot so many photos that it took me a while to organise and edit all of them. (p.s. Have a look at my Flickr Album  for more city and architectural photos …)

September Inspiration

I can’t believe it’s September already.

SEPTEMBER
I always loved and hated this time of the year: summer is almost over, schools starts again (sometimes I wish I was still at school), days are getting shorter, but, at the same time, it is the best moment to start with some fresh ideas, change things, clean the house, buying new schoolbooks ( do you remember the excitement of buying new notebooks, books and pencils before school starts? I can almost smell it :0 ), or simply make some plans for winter.

The Perfect Bedside table

Choosing the perfect bedside table isn’t an easy task. Especially when there’s not much available space.

With only 34 cm to play with, this was my selection shortlist :

COFFE TABLE OPTIONS

1. Backenzahn stool | e15 – £638

2. Fosta Stool | IKEA – £ 8

3. Hay Tray Square table – £ 119

4. VITTSJÖ | IKEA – £ 20

5. Butcher Table | Ethnicraft – £ 259

I decided to go for number 3, the Hay Tray square small table, white matte.

I can’t stress enough how minimal, pure, elegant and practical this table is!!! I also managed to get on the latest sales for a bit less than 100£ (yeahhh !!!)

It fits the space perfectly, the only problem I had was that it’s a bit too low for the height of the bed, which stop me from buying a matching one (I’ve never been a big fan of mirrored bedside tables anyway…).

I managed to solve the problem by placing a MUJI shelf raiser underneath, where I can also store some of my magazines and books.

The small Eclisse Lamp by Artemide, is the perfect final touch: a masterpiece designed by the Italian designer Vico Magistretti.

WHAT I LIKE: Simple and elegant

WHAT I DON’T LIKE: The tray sits loose on the metal frame (even if sometimes it’s useful)

WHAT I’D CHANGE: Having a slightly taller option would be nice…

Hope you like it.
