Like many people, my holiday plans for 2020 are now on hold. This summer my family and I were due to undertake our biggest Nordic road trip yet. Starting in Oslo, we were to spend a couple of adventurous weeks driving across Scandinavia to Copenhagen via the Swedish coast.
In the meantime, I’m more than happy staying home and making holiday plans for the future, especially when I read this week about the launch of the TypeO Loft.
Located in Skåne, southern Sweden, 30 miles from Malmö and just over an hour’s drive from Copenhagen via the Öresund bridge, the TypeO Loft is a unique one-room bed and breakfast.
Nestled in the idyllic Österlen countryside, it is these surrounding open fields, as well as the rolling hills and forest beyond that have also inspired the calming interior.
Part of a traditional farmstead dating back to 1842, the 50 square metre open plan space is painted in warm earthy tones, which are then complemented by a palette of natural materials and soft textures.
With its captivating floor-to-ceiling window, the living area has been carefully curated with a vintage ‘Noguchi’ coffee table from Vitra and black leather Ligne Rosets ‘Togo’ sofa actively encouraging guests to lie back and relax.
These same black and wood details have also been used in the custom-designed ash and grey limestone kitchen from Nordiska Kök, an awe inspiring Swedish kitchen company I’ve shared with you before.
And, if that wasn’t enough, you can also look forward to enjoying a good night’s sleep in a king size Dux bed before enjoying the breakfast provided on the terrace and showering in Aesop’s finest products.
Designed with rest and relaxation in mind, the TypeO Loft allows its guests to leave the world behind; slow down, do nothing and simply just be in the moment. Which sounds pretty perfect to me.
