vibe

Contemporary, cool lines with controlled splashes of colour. Parents Erika and Patrik run a homewares store and their eye for design is reflected in their impeccably tasteful yet homey abode.

who lives here?
Charlie in Stockholm, Sweden.

decor
The blanket on Charlie's bed was a childhood gift to Erika from her grandmother and the dinner table had belonged to Erika's parents in the 70s.

diy
Above the couch to the right is a self-portrait of Erika.The other frames all reflect family memories.

furniture
The chairs in Charlie's room are French and can be found online at www.thecollection.fr and the chairs at the dining table are from Kartell.


baby space fave
Charlie's collection of child-sized vehicles dotted around the house that suggest this home is a fun place to be! Also love the cheerful blue wall decal in Charlie's room that adds a quirky jolt to an otherwise restrained space.

top tips
Mix designer pieces or contemporary furniture in neutral shades with personal items to create a serene, homey feel. A framed collection of personal photos and drawings on a white wall can transform a bland living space and add interest.
