I was looking for inspiration the other day, and I found this cute little home in Gothenburg. While looking at all the beautiful details, I actually started looking at all the champagne bottles. Suddenly I got the urge to hop in a car and drive to France and buy bottle after bottle. I wonder if my husband would feel the same?
When we planned our wedding reception back in 2007 we wanted a fancy wedding cake and lots of champagne. We were students back then with a little girl and didn’t have enough money for a big wedding party – but we wanted to splash out on these two things. I haven’t regretted it one moment. It’s still one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Some people didn’t understand our decision, but I loved the fact that we didn’t care. It was our party, and that’s how we wanted to celebrate the day with friends and family.
But somehow the champagne bottles haven’t been that big a part of my life since. Of course, we drink a few bottles on New Year’s Eve every year and on special occasions. However, I would love to pop a bottle on a Saturday night as well. I think I’ll add “drink more champagne” on my life goals. That’s not a bad plan if you ask me.
Back to the apartment
I should also add a comment about the apartment – it’s only fair. The styling of this small home is pretty impressive if you ask me. It’s a small apartment, but it’s got everything you need. I cannot help but admire the smeg fridge. I’ve loved it forever, but now I’m not so sure I would actually buy one for our kitchen. I’m convinced that our old fridge will be the next thing to go in our home. So I’ll have to decide sooner than Iater. I’m also in love with the old rustic door. What is your favourite part of this home?
I almost feel like it isn’t really summer if I haven’t been to Gothenburg in Sweden. Last week we decided on a day trip this year with both kids. Unfortunately, the ferry had a little accident on Sunday, and we had to change our plans. We were all pretty excited about the trip, but we decided to go during our fall break instead.
I wanted to return to my favourite coffee spot da Matteo with my husband and both kids.

But I also recently discovered another coffee spot, Kafé Magasinet, which I’ve been wanting to explore.

I don’t want to say a lot about this beautiful home, but let the pictures do the talking. I’ll just leave you to enjoy this white home in lovely Gothenburg and then I’ll check in with you later this week with a few wishes for the upcoming Mother’s Day. Have a lovely Wednesday out there. <3
While in Gothenburg I stopped by Artilleriet in Magasinsgatan. It’s a must stop by shop when I’m in the city. And a natural stop before getting a cup of coffee at da Matteo right next door.
I really wanted to buy the “Welcome to the city of champions” print by Playtype. But somehow I left the shop without it, but with another nice treat for myself though. I then returned home and started researching for new blog posts, and I came across the print again. I saw it in this beautiful home on Alvhem.
The home, which is not for sale anymore is located in the same street as another of our must stop by places in the city. We always enjoy a meal at Egg & Milk.
I’m loving the Gothenburg print in the kitchen as well as the selection of coffee. Yes, I did spot coffee beans from da Matteo. I wouldn’t mind going back – maybe a little getaway with out the kids.
Just take a look at this cozy place in Gothenburg. We were not planning on going there this summer, but now I’m having second thoughts. I miss a warm summer day in the beautiful city and enjoying a cup of coffee at da Matteo. I guess I’ll have to evaluate the plans for this summer once again. But until then, I’ll enjoy looking at this wonderful place.
Enjoying a quiet moment this morning. Found this beauty – and wanted to share the many ideas with you. I just love love love the black and white door in the office corner. Wonder where to find it?
Have a lovely Sunday out there.
