Some people have the most cool style.  It’s something you can’t create or pretend to have, it’s something unexplainable that extends to every visual way that person expresses themselves. It’s no wonder  Jennifer Jansch is a popular stylist in Sweden.  This fall she took a big leap of faith and moved to New York city with her three daughters and husband.  I love New York, but I know  it was hard to leave this beautiful apartment!  The design has been a labor of love, a mixture of auction “wins” and vintage finds from Sweden’s version of Craig’s list.The result is a super chic cool family space.  It just came out in Skona Hem last week, so I finally have the go ahead to post it here on the blog.


Dining room.

Master bedroom. Don’t you love the carpet?

Jennifer in her pretty apartment.

The kitchen chairs are vintage finds that have been  repainted, the table is Ikea.

This kitchen makes me home sick!!

Playful colors and patterns.

Dreamy colors.

Must have been so hard to leave!

I hope you all are having a great week so far.

    Such a beautiful home to leave behind! Those dining chairs are fantastic. And I love the layout of the kitchen — very un-American!

    That belongs to your friend! It is absolutely heavenly! I posted about her "cognac sofas". Both the color and the real deal is needed here – what a week…!

    Call you in a bit!

    Ijust kept saying "wow" at each and every picture. And it's not even necesarrily "my style." Love the mix of fancier and more casual elements–that's a hard balance to strike!

    I love the art and the mixing of patterns (something I am working on). The light fixture in the dinning room is amazing and I am in love with the wallpaper paired with the Red/White stripped curtains! The skateboards are a nice touch. It must have been hard to leave but at least she can take her fantastic style with her.

    Absolutely breathtaking, just studying every picture w/ all of her unique design pieces, WOW, is right!!!
    Is there anyway to find out where she bought the bedroom large Armoire/closet with the large window panes? It's AMAZING! I would love to find such a piece! Also, her sectional- any guess where that may have come from? She's SO talented! Thanks Jill! -Jules

    The master's bedroom looks immaculate but I think you better have huge and sturdy cabinets or dresser from the cabinet makers in Wangara. It would make the room look more organized and you're rest assured that you're things are kept well.

    The master's bedroom looks really elegant with the carpet and the chair. The chairs on the kitchen on the other hand is a stand out because of its color. Thanks for sharing this one!

    I admire these luxurious settings for the apartments. They bring about much influence through-out their inspired themes. I love especially the broadbeach holiday apartments.
