Keeping it simple in calm white and wood

Keeping it simple today with a lovely home in Gothenburg, Sweden decorated in white, wood and touches of grey throughout. The early 20th century building was designed by architect Oscar W. Nilsson in the Swedish 'national romantic style'. As a result the space has lovely high ceilings and large windows which flood the space with light. I love the spiral staircase which connects the two floor duplex - and the way they have tucked in a clever work space beneath (with a fab wishbone chair no less). The apartment leads out to a tranquil courtyard. How I'd love to enjoy some spring sunshine sipping lemonade at that table today, fancy joining me?!

I spy the award winning Äng vase by Klong on the kitchen table. I got a brass one as a leaving present once and it's become one of my favourite pieces. I'm also a fan of the Rosendahl Monkey dangling from the string pocket shelves seen in the background - such a cheeky chap and an absolute Danish classic.

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Other lovely white and wood spaces include this, this and this one.

It's crazy, but I arrived back in Sweden last night and it's already time to pack my bags and leave for The Hive in Berlin where I'll be taking to the stage (gulp!). Any tips for speaking in public? Recommendations for great bars, restaurants, and off beat places to enjoy would also be great (I'll need a drink or two afterwards)?! And if you're going to The Hive - I can't wait to meet you!

Have a lovely day!
