I got so much inspiration from this apartment

We had the opportunity to stay in this amazing apartment that Åhléns has decorated with their Bra val collection. Since I just moved in to a new apartment that I’ve decided to only decorate with second hand finds and products that have been produced in a environmental friendly way, I got so much inspiration from this apartment.

These shelves have been made out of boxes with the help of an old rope. I would love to do the same with maybe some old wine boxes.

I loved the different shades of grey throughout the whole apartment.

I’m definitely going to check out these kitchen gloves in organic cotton for my kitchen.

The perfect salt and pepper bowls to have next to the hob whilst cooking.

This is what my dream dinner table looks like! A vintage feeling, some candles and a note book to scribble down ideas.


To show the wide range of products in the ”Bra val” collection, Åhléns has decorated an apartment in Södermalm in Stockholm with ”Bra val” products (check it out at airbnb.se/ahlens). Here you’ll find more information about the apartment and the campaign. #åhlensbraval

This post is presented in collaboration with Åhléns.
