this is such a pretty, light-filled apartment in Linnéstaden — a neighborhood in the central part of Gothenburg, sweden. built in 1885, it’s been given a modern facelift — they’ve added modern furnishings and lighting fixtures, and painted it a calming shade of pale green that looks really fresh with all that light streaming in. but they’ve kept all those turn of the century details intact — wide double doors, the high ceilings and gorgeous crown moldings. they just don’t make homes like this anymore, so when i see something this lovely, i just have to sigh and wonder why.

danish modern / sfgirlbybay

such a lovely townhouse this is! this danish modern home featured in bo bedre and photographed by tia borgsmidt boasts large, open rooms with loads of natural light, high ceilings and incredibly beautiful hardwood herringbone floors. this copehnhagen home was built in 1931, designed by architect Hans Dahlerup Bertelsen and the current owners purchased it and brought it back to its original glory, then furnished it with mostly found objects — a knack for ‘recyling and repurposing’ a lot of their vintage furniture were dumpster dives! most impressive — folks after my own heart! for the full tour, visit bo bedre .

I’m off to Japan for a month, but before I go, I thought I’d leave you with few of my favorite Japanese houses from one remarkable duo, mA-style architects.

Top to bottom, left to right:

  1. modern extension of a traditional family residence
  2. The garden and floating walls that frame this artful abode
  3. This plywood closet inside a creatively constructed space
  4. Patterns formed by the natural light pouring in from skylights
  5. Shōji-inspired sliding doors that open to an interior patio

Sayonara for a little bit!

Happy Friday,
Annie
