Home Decor Inspiration: Stockholm Apartment

Should you happen to find a few spare “rocks”

lying at the bottom of the sock drawer

(and by “rock” I do mean a million bucks),

I reeeeaalllllly like the idea of you springing for this

apartment for sale in Sweden.

Alternatively, we could both MAKE

lots of money and go halfsies on this getaway…

let me sell you first.

It seems unnecessary to offer commentary on these rooms.

Pretty sure you can read my mind by now.


Don’t you love all the trim and paneling???

Just imagine us sipping here…

sharing our secrets,

exchanging recipes and youtubes,

baring our souls over swedish pancakes.

Do not even hint that swedish pancakes don’t do it for you

if you have not tasted mine.

*Mood at time of blogging?*


Decidedly sassy and energetic.

I wonder if we would agree that life is messy?

That the messy makes C.L.E.A.N. spaces
all the more lovelybeautiful.

I’m so loving this smart chic potential vacation home offered
by Sotheby’s in Stockholm.

(It’s a tad embarrassing you’re still

reading my mind when I’m thinkin’ Arby’s….)

Sold on this idea of dreamy apartment living?

Peace to you right where you are.

    You know if I could, I would! Delicious! The apartment and your pancakes…I'm sure. Gotta love a sassy girl. With a 13 year old daughter, I better like sass or I'm in T-R-O-U-B-L-E, Michelle!

    I am so in on that apartment with you, it's fabulous. And the change we find in the bottom of my purse will pay the maid to keep the apartment as clean as it is now…heaven….;)

  9. January 12, 2012 / 2:46 am

    This is stunning!!! Wish I could move right in, or you could buy it and we will all come visit! What a dream!!!

  10. January 12, 2012 / 3:03 am

    It is mine!!! I can feel that my big Lotto win is burning in my wallet! And then we will all go and I will treat you to Swedish waffles with real whipped cream and cloudberry jam. Putting the energy out there.



    P.S This apartment is located in my Mom's neighborhood. Pretty schnazzy part of Stockholm.

  11. January 12, 2012 / 3:33 am

    Sold. Nothing else. I don't even know what to write. Plain envious.

  12. January 12, 2012 / 3:57 am

    Now there's a thought we could all get together take turns paying the mortgage and take turns using the place. Have a couple of girls weekend you make the pancakes I'll make some eggs benedict. thanks for the laugh about Sothebys and Arby's. Now theres a great combination!

  20. January 13, 2012 / 6:24 pm

    Oh Michele, I don't know if it's just me but I can't see the images. Even tried reloading my browser, but nothing still. 🙁

    I'm sure it's a wonderful place though, given your description! I'll try again later to see if I can see it.

    Happy weekend, sweetpea!

    Meera xx

    STUPENDOUS~ MAGNIFICENT, MINDBOGGLINGLY (not sure that is a word but I don't care) BEAUTIFUL.

    Where did you find it and how much is it?? Maybe if I save till I am 200, I can afford…ONE ROOM. LOL. The spare bedrooms a little tiny but WHO CARES, I'd live in that kitchen and LR!

    Thanks for the eye DIAMONDS! 🙂

  25. January 14, 2012 / 2:38 pm

    Hi Michelle,
    I would love to go halfsies with you on the beautiful place. I would love a place in Sweden. I checked my sock drawer but did not find any rocks.
    Oh to dream!

  26. January 14, 2012 / 5:17 pm
