Swedish Home Inspired by Pippi Longstocking

This family lives on the same street in Stockholm as famed Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. According to the Sköna Hem article, the family attempted to channel Pippi Longstocking in the design. We weren't really sure what that meant until we started looking closely at the photos and realized that each room was wallpapered in a different pattern! (If you see other Pippi influences, let us know! The family is also influenced by the movie Lotta pa Brakmakargatan) Nearly all of the furniture in the home is vintage — that's a 1970s oilcloth on the dining room table!

The Ikea cabinets are paired with a marble counter top and wallpaper designed by Josef Frank and produced by Borastapeter.

The children's room. The wallpaper is Cerisy by Manuel Canovas.

The bed is from a flea market and the wallpaper pattern is a British pattern, Suva manufactured by Sanderson.

Even the closet is wallpapered! The toile wallpaper is Jouvence by Manuel Canovas.
