my scandinavian home: Black and white in Stockholm

Black and white in Stockholm

Thursday, 19 April 2012

From one extreme to another. For the past couple of days I've been 'escaping' to a remote white washed beach home with views over vast expanses of sand dunes and open sea and then yesterday I slightly more 70's vibe with Svenskt Tenn. Today, a Stockholm apartment in monochrome with an industrial feel with lots of personality. This place is just a little more accessible than the home in Uruguay though as it's actually for sale and a mere 600 km away (from me at least!). 

With big thanks to a reader in the USA I can confirm that this is the apartment of multi-talented Jimmy Schönning who provides a step by step guide to the renovation of his home on his blog.

I really like the eclectic lighting over the dining room table, especially the (DIY?) basket lamp. Open-plan is not always easy (I'm struggling with mine a little at the moment!) but this home-owner has created some great areas don't you think?

I am off today with my 1 and a half year old as she is a little poorly, bless her cotton socks!
Have a lovely day!

  1. It's great to see what can creatively be accomplished in a small space and look great too, thanks to Jimmy Schonning!

    1. Hi anon! Is this apartment Jimmy Schönning's? or is he the interior designer behind it? If so I will credit him in the post?! Would be great to know. I understand 20K found this space on hemnet.

  2. Love all the bits and bobs because although I would love to be minamal I just can't help collecting things, we also live open plan , which suits me fine as I hate shut doors! It can be noisy sometimes though!!
    Hope your daughter feels better soon. x

    He is the designer behind all of it--I assume. Go to his blog to see the steps involved from an empty shell to the finished product. I'm in the USA and have been following his blog for many months. The "cabin" he did before this also is wonderful and worth looking into and perhaps posting! I really like his design sense and product line on his web-shop. Unfortunately, they/you are in Sweden and I am in the USA. Note: (I'm not trying to hide who I am--just couldn't get the other labels to publish!)
    I enjoy your blog as well!

  5. Very much a boy's apartment, which is to say I absolutely love it. Large different lamps in the kitchen look great.

  6. Oh, WOW. Man, Swedes get it right every single time! That kitchen, the entire apartment actually. I love the mismatched dining room chairs and that tile backsplash. And that chalkboard door. I could keep going...
