in residence

I've seen a few of these images floating around the web waves, and have pinned a couple of them.  I wanted to see the story behind them so here it is from Residence magazine. 

The flat is in Malmo, Sweden.  It is a great example of old and new living together beautifully.  For example the big gold mirror and the Eames chair at the desk are both finds from the famous Paris flea market, Clignancourt.  The desk and clothing rack you see in those images are from Ikea.  

A bonus for the homeowner was the built-in art she discovered under the particle board '70's ceilings.  The architectural detail was a treasure uncovered when they removed the drop ceilings.

The home was built ages ago, the flea market finds add character, and the practical and simple finds from Ikea work seamlessly together.
