my scandinavian home: Lotta's beautiful black and white home

Lotta's beautiful black and white home

Monday, 11 February 2013

Monday morning- yay! (note the optimism!). To kick off the week I have to share the beautiful monochrome home of Sweden's Queen of Interior style, Lotta Agaton. This has been floating around the blogosphere for a few days and I can totally see why.





Styling: Lotta Agaton, Photography Pia Ullin for Residence via Feel Inspired and

Black and white perfection aside, I absolutely love the use of plants throughout the home. I saw a great post on 'green' inspiration here. What do you love about this home?

Today I have to admit I'm feeling a little worst for wear. P and I were in London on Saturday for my sister's 30th birthday at the fantastic speakeasy Evans and Peel and two days later I am still being reminded that I'm not 30 myself! Strong coffee anyone?!

Having said that London was really rainy so I actually appreciated returning to snowy Sweden yesterday. If you're suffering from a little winter blues (Northern hemisphere people) check out these lovely photos, they make you want winter to last forever.

Have a lovely Monday!

  4. Det hemmet är helt galet snyggt! Man njuter av varje detalj.
    Vet du vad ... moderna museet har även en webshop, jag beställde därifrån. Jag tänkte så slipper du åka upp till stockholm om du ville ha deras affischer.
    Ha en fin dag nu

    1. That is great to know! Thank you for the tip. A Moderna Museet opened in Malmö a couple of years ago (it's wonderful, has a great shop and is also a great little place for lunch). However, it's often so much easier to buy online and I am very keen to get hold of the lovely posters :)

  5. I just love these pictures they are very much my same style. I have always opted over the clean and minimal look.

  7. Sigh, I'm not surprised at all that Lotta's home is as gorgeous as it is. Her shop is the first place I plan to visit whenever I make it to Stockholm! Sorry you had a rainy weekend in London! If it makes you feel any better, it's raining buckets here now. xo

  9. I love this home, its just amazing. Can you find out if that is a real indoor fig tree or a fake one? I would love to do the same in my London flat but wasn't sure if it was possible.

    Thanks,

    Jennifer

    1. Hi Jennifer, the fig tree will be a real one. I have one too (although I bought the type that drops it's leaves in the winter). They are really lovely and very popular here at the moment. I can definitely recommend getting one for your London flat.

  10. A lovely home! I think plants bring a sort of warmth and love to a home as you know that someone is nurturing them in the background, so they add life to what would otherwise be a "still Life".

  11. I adore Lotta's style! Was about to do a post on her home also and have been 'pinning' all these images to my boards as every space in her home is amazing. I also loved the wintery images and they (almost) make me look forward to the long Kiwi winter I have ahead of me! x
