my scandinavian home

Step inside the charming home of a Swede living in Italy

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

It's so much fun to see the home of a Scandinavian expat. Last week we took a tour of a Swede's colourful home in Brooklyn, New York. And today I thought we'd step inside the incredibly charming Italian home of Swede, Annemo. Based in a small village 30 minutes from Milan, Anemo works as an agent for Danish brand Tine K Home and shares her house with her Italian husband and three children. The family have decorated their home with beautiful, understated furniture and muted tones allowing the high ceilings, beautiful period features and huge windows to take centre-stage.  Subtle hints of bamboo, rattan and handwoven baskets add a hint of the med while linen gently floats in the afternoon breeze for a fresh, cool feel.

Production: Jonna Kivilahti / Mrs Jones blog. Photography: Krista Keltanen.

*Sigh*. Such a beautiful home! I love the muted tones and Scandinavian feel. I can really imagine how lovely and cool the space feels in the summer time - a perfect respite from the scorching sun. How about you?

Get the look: these Tine K Home bamboo furniture (I love the idyll home chair!) and round basket lamp (in kitchen).  This basket and bag are similar. Dining - Bistro dining chairs. Sitting room - Gervasoni ghost armchairs and sofa. Source made-to-measure light grey pure linen curtains / drapes here (Click here to see mine in white). Study - lamps by Tine K Home.

It'll come as no surpise that this lovely home has also featured in back issues of Elle Decoration country, Elle Decoration Sweden and Glorian koti in Finland. Great minds... :)

Thank you to Krista and Jonna for the kind permission to share these images. The Finnish duo are often capturing beautiful homes - previous tours I've shared include a lakeside cabin with a twist, a pared-back Finnish summer cottage and even Jonna's own summer cottage in the Inkoo archipelagos - Guh! Take me to the Finnish islands now!

Have a lovely day!

A happy and relaxed boho family home

Monday, 27 March 2017

Hello there! I hope you're having a great start to the week?! I thought we could kick off with the delightful, light-filled family home of Chloe Brookman in old federation house in Sydney, Australia. Chloe is co-owner of Olli Ella, an online store selling playful, iconic and beautifully made nursery furniture and textiles (just look at this lovely luggy basket and you'll see what I mean!) - which she runs with her sister in London. Chloe's shares her home with her husband Charlie and their three children: Tennyson, Arlo and Nell as well as their dog Eshu. The space is as charming as you'd imagine - with a fab mix of handmade and unique pieces and a wonderful warm and relaxed feel. Let's take a tour...

Photography Jacqui Turk  Styling: Nicole Valentine Don  Assisting: Ellen Arthur.

I love how there's an element of surprise in every room - a bright yellow cushion here, a pyramid shaped book shelf (made by her husband) there, a trumpet, a rug on the wall.... it makes the space so fun and interesting.

And then there's the mid-century furniture and an abundance of plants.... oh yes!

Is there anything that you love in particular about this home?

As you can imagine many of the items in the home are available at Olli Ella including the bassinet, pillows, rugs and planters. So happy to have found this store (although by the looks of things a little dangerous too - I'd pretty much love everything in it, how about you?!).

You can see more pictures of this lovely home as well as an interview with Chloe over at The Transcontinental Affair. You might recognise the fabulous blog as I once featured the home of Nicole Valentine Don (or 'Little Nicki' as she's also known) here (note the relaxed boho style too... :).

Have a wonderful day! 

PS On a completely separate note, I was super excited to see my piece 'Snoozing the Scandinavian way' in Traditional Home magazine US this weekend. Hope you like it!
