the other week we got a sneak peek into the stockholm home of katarina andersson of happy sthlm, and today we’re getting a peek into her business partner’s home! designer kajsa aronsson lives in this colorful home (i love all of the blue and red!) with her husband björn and their three children: mirjam, elof, and estrid. their central stockholm flat is originally from the 1940s but has been updated with kajsa’s “mix and match” style and her love of colors. kajsa explained that she “likes the idea of a home as an expression of the people who live there and the life they are living” and i think this home seems like its full of happiness and life. thanks so much to kajsa and her family for sharing this space with us. be sure to click “read more” at the bottom of the post for full-sized images. stay tuned for many more peeks today!

[image above: We have a friend, Mimi Regelson, that has a vintage shop, Exile, in Richmond, Virginia. Now and then we recieve what we call ”America- parcels” from her with the most imagintive mix of things. The small figures that we have placed in our kitchen window are gifts from her. The ceramic object that I use as a vase is made by a friend; Gustaf Nordenskiöld.]

Cute house! I got a laugh from the “plastic vase” that they have decorating their bookshelf though. That vase is called, in hindi at least – a lota (or I’ve heard it called chora). The muslim equivalent of a bidet, It’s kind of like having a decorative toilet plunger in your kitchen. As long as it hasn’t been used, I’m sure it’s fine – just a funny quirk.
