Cool spaces: Apartments in Sweden

January 8, 2015

Stockholm-loft-9

Found these two amazing Swedish apartments on this blog. The first one is available to buy, if you have R19 000 000 lying around, yip you read right, crazy right?

A couple of people have been asking me to do a post on our kitchen and this morning whilst I was in there slurping down some ice-tea, I decided to whip out the old camera and do just that.

As you can see from all the photo evidence below I like kitchen stuff, glasses, jugs, jars, teacups, cookbooks, mixing bowls etc etc and luckily for us slash me, not Shane, I have lots of nice open shelves to display some of the stuff I have been collecting over the years.

So I hope you enjoy my kitchen tour, while I head on back to my baby bear who is in search of her own version of ice-tea.

Evie-Cahir-1

I recently went to look at Evie Cahir’s site again. I did a post on her incredible illustrations last year and I was blown away by the sheer volume of good work that she had up on her site, there were a lot of pieces that I thought were really interesting and eery and I spent a long time going through her stuff.

When I went to go have a look a second time around, I was once again surprised by the sheer volume and the awesomeness of her drawings, which are like bizarre little snippets into her life.
