When Adam Wihlborg tells the story, it’s hard to believe that six flights of dark and dusty stairs once nearly deterred him from signing a lease on his spacious, light-filled flat looking out over the trees in Shanghai’s French Concession. Now, friends and visitors who have successfully ascended those steps are greeted with a cheerful vanity and tidy shoe rack, just a small sampling of the coziness to come: Inside the home, vanilla-custard colored trim, white walls, picture windows, and a jungle of greenery complement spaces neatly filled with vintage treasures and more modern, Scandi-style touches. The former refers to the collections he accumulated over nearly a decade in and around China, and the latter is the inevitable result of being a product developer at IKEA. Editor’s note: This is a tour rerun because it’s such a beautiful space.
