Regular readers will note it wasn’t long ago we featured a stunning Stockholm home from local Swedish designer Louise Liljencrantz. With an eye for elegance in textures, colours and objects Liljencrantz has already built an impressive resume with her quietly luxurious spaces.
Having lusted over her designs for others we couldn’t wait to get sneak peek into the home of the designer herself. True to her aesthetic, the classic bones of this house are balanced with eye-catching elements like the slate-grey stone fireplace and parquetry floors. While timber floors, creamy walls and large windows are by no means an unusual sight in Scandinavian homes, here Liljencrantz has chosen to use a misty-grey palette and carefully-curated artwork, lighting and furniture to add a clear sense of identity to the space.
Flooded with natural light and with generous apartment-sized proportions, the home feels spacious without being overtly formal, its layout oriented around bringing people together in the lounge or dining areas, or providing a solo retreat in the decadent bedroom or study nook. Effortlessly chic yet with a clear sense of personality, there’s no doubting this is a designer’s home – and needless to say an envy-inducing one!

Liljencrantz’s designs demonstrate a passion for rich textures and beautiful, interesting pieces so it should come as no surprise her own home celebrates both. We’re particularly enamoured with the brass, velvet and linen of the bedroom (not to mention those gorgeous ornate details), a relaxed yet stylish space to wake up in.
