my scandinavian home: A white and grey Malmö apartment

A white and grey Malmö apartment

Monday, 11 November 2013

I hope you had a great weekend? It rained the entire two days here. Grrr! But we realised that the saying 'there's no such thing as bad weather only bad clothing' really rings true when you have frustrated pent-up kids at home. So we got our head to toe rain gear out and headed to the forest with a barbecue. Not only did we feel very virtuous but we had a lovely time too! Recently I've covered black, white, concrete, light wood and even green floors. So this week I thought I'd start with a Malmö apartment with grey floors. It's nicely balanced with the grey pendant light and bed linen and pastel shades seen in the rugs and cushions. What do you think, is a grey floor for you?

I'm totally into linen bedding at the moment ....and it only gets softer and softer the more you wash it - perfect for a Monday morning lie in (dream on....!).

For more grey inspiration you could always take a scroll through my 'decorating with grey' label.

Since Christmas (wait...did someone just say the c word?!)  is only 6 weeks away (eeeek) it's time to start planning (mentally anyway). Which is why my new sponsor Self Packaging couldn't have arrived at a better time! The idea behind Self Packaging is to apply the DIY concept to the world of packaging, demonstrating that making your own gift boxes is not only easy and cheap but fun too!  I'm loving their Christmas collection including this very cool make your own advent calendar kit and little cardboard decorations.

Have a great start to the week!

  2. Oh the grey floor is gorgeous, I would love to do that but my husband would kill me if I suggested painting the maple!

    1. I have the same problem in my home - we inherited oak floors from the previous owner which put paid to me ever painting them light grey or white. Grrrr!

  3. Oh man, it rained all weekend here too. I was feeling a little miserable by the time Sunday afternoon rolled around so I sucked it up and headed to a museum where I had a massive cup of coffee and a piece of cake. I felt instantly better.

    Anyway, I'm a huge fan of grey and really like the flooring. Really beautiful house. I'm especially drawn to that dreamy industrial coffee maker in the kitchen! xx

  4. A small apartment but so greatly organized!!! I love rational small spaces where you can adopt such intelligent solutions!

  5. Grey floors are great! Although I think that I'd use a little bit lighter shade than the one used in this apartment.
    We had also cold and quite rainy weekend, not good for 2 hour stroller walks :)

  6. This space is so great. I'm preparing a move to a smaller apartment so it's interesting to see what you can do with much less space. The small kitchen's Island really gives a touch! I couldn't imagine that kitchen's Island in a small apartment. But it works!
