my scandinavian home

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...

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!

A fab Swedish small space with different 'zones'

Thursday, 11 February 2016

Often one room apartments are decorated with the same scheme throughout - i.e. white walls and then touches of an accent colour - which is a great way of creating a cohesive space. But, as this fabulous studio apartment in Gothenburg shows, it's also great to mark out particular zones. Here, I absolutely love the cosy, cocoon effect of a dark wall in the bedroom area, and likewise the dining area is lovely and bright. Such a clever design for a small space, don't you think?

Entrance. Found via Coco Lapine with thanks.

Oooo, I love this apartment. I think the interior design is so clever!

Could you live here?

Get the look: Thonet side chair, this is a great source for prints, charcoal linen bedding, TURBO clothes rail. Try the Farrow & Ball dark range for a similar paint colour.

This steel staircase going up through the centre of a house in Tel Aviv is amazing!

Have you ever visited Merci in Paris? It's on my hit list for 2016. This interview with the owner is so interesting. 

Just how fabulous is this Australian home?

And finally, I'm loving the art deco touch in this bathroom with a double vanity (oh how I'd love to have my very own sink....!).

Have a lovely day! 

PS I was so happy to participate in a Q&A with Etsy about how to create Modern Rustic.
