my scandinavian home: A fabulous black and white Swedish home

A fabulous black and white Swedish home

Monday, 2 June 2014

I do love to start the month (and week) with a fabulous home. And just look what I found.... I'm actually not sure where to start with what I love most about this space. The black floors? The cornicing? The designer / on trend pieces? Whatever it is about this home, it's for sale here in Sweden and I'm incredibly tempted, how about you?!

Could you live here?

I'll try not to go to town on the 'I spy', but here are a few pieces that caught my eye: Muuto dot clothes hooks, Gubi semi-pendant light, string shelving, moroccan poufs, Thonet 214 chair, Hay industrial light, IKEA 365 BRASA reading light and Carl Hansen CH24 wishbone chairs.

Other utterly incredible monochrome homes to brighten up a Monday found here, here and here....

Have a wonderful start to the week!

  2. 'WOW' for the black floor. I love it! If circumstances would allow it (like living in Sweden) I would also be very tempted.

  4. I love this one, as it feels like somewhere people actually live! Sometimes the homes can be a bit too staged...

  5. I love how everything is out in the open. Only open shelves, no closed cupboards or anything. You must be a really tidy person to be able to keep this looking good...

  7. A question! Do they use curtains in Sweden?

    1. Good question! In the bedrooms blinds are often more common (look at the top of the window frame in the first picture and you'll see the very subtle black out blinds). In fact blinds seem to be much more common than curtains over all - possibly because they don't obscure any light from the window - and letting as much natural light into a home here is very important! But Swedes out there - let us know if you beg to differ.....
