Inside The Home with Malin Holmudd – Part 1

Interior styling is something I think can really allow a person get to know you and and your family, and portray a unique sense of homeliness. We have teamed up with Swedish interior stylist Malin Holmudd to bring you a look inside some of Sweden’s chicest family homes, and get an insight into their inhabitants lives and style. Malin believes that the environments we are in can affect our mindset in so many ways, and her aim as an interior designer to influence people’s lives through function and aesthetic in a positive way.

Describe how the apartment/house looked the first time you saw it? Why did you choose this to be your home? 

Very 60-70s. Dark panels and see weed wallpaper. Kitchen tiles were orange, dark green and brown. great neighbour, close to the ocean.

What changes have you made since you moved in?

A lot in the decor but kept the architecture of the house. Painted the walls, took down the panels. Remade the kitchen.

What is the best thing about the house?

Despite the small size of the house and the rooms it’s very well planned. And the big windows let in a lot of light

How would you describe your home?

For us it’s important that it feels personal. If it’s a vase from a second hand shop or a designer lamp doesn’t matter. The clutter and mix of it makes it a home and not a showroom. 

How would you describe your style? How did you create it?

I like to mix and and if I really want something I ask my husband to build it./annika

What are you most proud of in your home?

We are most proud of the atmosphere and the cosy feeling.
