Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: It’s a stone house built in 1957, situated just outside the center of Stockholm.

We’ve done a lot of renovation since moving in, but have tried to keep as much of the original features as possible, or make new stuff that blends well with the old.

Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Happy eclectic

What is your favorite room and why? I love the joint kitchen and living room where the light flow is superb and there’s a lot of space to relax and be creative.

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? A ceiling lamp called Bumling, a design classic here in Sweden.

Any advice for creating a home you love? Just fill your home with things that make YOU feel happy!
