Alpine bed by Modernica

Saturday, 13 February 2016

Hello, I hope you're having a lovely weekend! I'm popping in today with some exciting news - Modernica, producer of high-end modern furnishings such as Fiberglass Chairs, Bubble lamps, and the fabulous Papa bear Chair, (I know, right?!) have re-created their most popular classic Case Study Alpine bed in North American ash. Designed by Jay Novak, the inspiration for the bed comes from a respect and appreciation of the traditional craftsmanship of vintage-sporting equipment; such as bentwood tennis rackets, wooden skis and even a wooden kayak (how cool!).

I love the simple and fluid lines. I have to say, I think I might just stay in bed all day reading and drinking coffee if I had one of these Alpine beds, how about you?!

There's more good news, the fab team at Modernica are offering all My Scandinavian Home readers a 10% discount on this bed (sorry, the discount is only redeemable within the United States, however the bed is available globally through Modernica distributors). To redeem your voucher just tap in the code ALPINEBED at check-out. Valid until 13th March 2016.

An elegant Stockholm pad with fab windows

Friday, 12 February 2016

It's the weekend! Yay! I actually thought it'd never arrive as my family have all been sick. Poor things! I'm also a bit worried as we have a 7 hour flight on Sunday and I've yet to catch the horrible bug eeeeek. To say I've washed my hands to obsessive levels over the last 24 hours would be an understatement!! I'm also camping out at a coffee shop by the sea to work (under the advice of my doctor sister - if you say so Cas)! On a brighter note,  having blogged about Scandinavian homes for over four years I've started to recognise the photographer before I've even seen the credits. One Swedish photographer with a particularly strong signature style is the talented Kristofer Johnson. You may remember this and this home he captured recently. And now he's back with an equally elegant space in Stockholm. The home belongs to photographer / blogger Louise Ljungberg and has been decorated throughout with that fab mix of grey, green and blue.  I particularly love the sofas and the wonderful windows between the kitchen and bedroom. Let's take a tour...

Styling Anna MÃ¥rselius. Photography Kristofer Johnsson. Residence magazine.

Everything about this space is just so calm and the large arched windows are beautiful! I also love the shelves across the windows in the kitchen - very clever (do you remember the window shelves in this Australian beach house too?).

Oh how I could camp out here for the weekend, how about you?!

Get the look: Source a rustic bench here (I've just bought one for my bedroom!). Louise's artwork can be spotted throughout the space and is available here. Washed linen bedding in charcoal, light grey, and navy (absolutely love this colour). Dark grey knitted throw.

More absolutely lovely homes captured by Kristofer include a Stockholm pad with a mix of vintage, Ylva Skarp's magnificent country home and the Swedish home of a fashion stylist.

Right, I'd better go off and pack for our holiday - exciting!! Have you ever been to Sri lanka? I will of course be blogging throughout my time there, although bear with me if I have a little wifi trouble at times.

Have a wonderful weekend!

PS One of my all time favourite bloggers, Victoria of SF Girl By Bay - has written such a nice review of my book here. Thank you so much Victoria!
