Happy weekend! Hope it's a good one. Andrew has had a very long and busy week so we'll be taking it easy here — Scrabble is definitely on the horizon. How about you? What are you up to?

Built in 1950, over the years the period features of this Malmo home gradually disappeared behind drywall and paneling. When interior designer Nina Gerthel and her husband Martin Karyds moved in, they discovered wonderful period details while renovating their home, such as the built-in bookcase in the living area that now sets off the whole room. Opting to keep the walls white has allowed Nina and Martin flexibility in how they furnish their home and allows their vintage furniture and colourful accessories to stand out — such as the carpet in front of the bookcase, designed by Nina. Restored to its original beauty, their home is now a lovely relaxed mix of old and new. More here on Sköna Hem.
