Boatshed Chic - the Swedish Way

After ten weeks on this European odyssey, I must confess to feeling a little homesick for the boatshed. So today, I was drawn to the weatherboard walls of two shops in the sweet little town of Mariefred, on the water not far from Stockholm. The first shop was called, appropriately enough, Waterlily:

It presents the whitewashed palette in an elegant and minimalist way:



The second store is called Karin Lindstrom:

I love the green of this table and the way it is teamed with pink:

I love what they do with the classic white palette too:

This armoire has been painted blue and given glass doors. And the pink dress, what can I say:

More white:

Another two weeks and I´ll be back at the boatshed, having been on this fantastic trip, which has exposed me to so many fresh influences and given me tons of new ideas.

Awww Beth, I know how you're feeling right now. I was overseas for 9 weeks last year and I felt the same way towards the end. Now I'm busting to go back over lol.

Those last stores in Sweden are lovely.

Hi, I love the Swedish and beachy style too. I just found a great shop at Palm Beach on the Gold Coast called "Sealife" that is very similar! Nice to find your blog, Mel xx
