Look inside the old Swedish home of Mattias and Carolina Storm:

'This house is old and imperfect, which we love'

Danish design company Ferm Living visited Swedish entrepreneurs Mattias and Carolina Storm. Just a 10-minute metro train ride from Stockholm’s central station lies the borough of Gamla Enskede. Despite its proximity to the hustle and bustle of the city, the neighbourhood feels worlds away. Traditional Swedish wood houses with little gardens line charmingly crooked streets, and walking along them, you almost feel as though you’ve been transported to the pages of an Astrid Lindgren novel.

In one of the first houses built in the area, dating back to 1909, lies the home of Mattias and Carolina Storm and their two children. Carolina is a creative consultant and influencer while Mattias splits his time between painting and working in private equity.

'We have lived in so many different types of apartments in so many different styles – industrial, turn of the century – when we came into this house we thought, this house has its own character. It’s old and imperfect, which we love. We wanted the interior to stay true to that. Not all homes should look like a French penthouse', Carolina explains.

The result is an inviting mixture of vintage finds, Scandinavian design classics and English countryside aesthetics infused with curious, thoughtfully chosen details. Curating their home is an ever-evolving process, with Carolina's talent for sourcing vintage pieces shining through. Scouring online platforms, auction sites and flea markets, Carolina loves unearthing treasures. With each addition, they curate a collection that embodies their evolving aesthetic, continuously redefining their personal space. The antique Swedish cabinet is a cherished favourite, evoking a sense of history and paying homage to the house itself.

Asked about their favourite room of the house, both Mattias and Carolina agree that it has to be the kitchen, which they describe as the heart of their home and where the family spends most of their time together. Carolina adds that her second-favourite spot has to be the little office area, where the Feve Desk from Ferm Living is surrounded by an abundance of plants.
