SECOND-HAND CHIC

Home decorating doesn't need to be stressful or cost you your life savings. On the contrary, it should be great fun and can definitely be done on the cheap, trust me. All you need is a little imagination, patience and an adventurous spirit. This shabby but charming house in Borås, Sweden was a dream project for vintage-lover and interior stylist Johanna Flyckt. Together with her amateur carpenter husband, she was able to turn what once was an old and run-down house into a well-functioning family home. With lots of white, sheet metal and amazing finds she scored on her many trips to flea markets and vintage stores, she managed to created a delightful, warm and quirky haven for her kids. To add that personal touch, Johanna included old re-painted objects of great traditions, like metal letters, framed children's drawings and mementos from their travels. If you would like to know more about Johanna and be inspired by her style and love for vintage, you can read her lovely blog here.
