my scandinavian home: The perfect black, white and grey apartment

The perfect black, white and grey apartment

Monday, 24 November 2014

Hello! How was your weekend? We're getting excited here as next weekend is Advent Sunday which means all the stars can go up in the windows and the fairy lights in the trees outside. The days are so short I love the warm glow from these lights. But before all of that - today's home tour. And what a very cool Swedish home it is. For sale through Entrance, the table's all set for a festive feast and the bang on trend monochrome mix of dark grey, black and white is softened by the light wood floor and exposed brick work. Love it, how about you?


A couple of things I'm keen to point out. Firstly the vintage black leather sofa. These are so popular right now and look fab with mid-century furniture. I'm still kicking myself as I spotted one at Sopstationen, a recycle station shop in Malmö, a year ago and didn't snap it up. GRR! You can often find them on E-bay, Lauritz and LiveAuctioneers.

The other thing is the front door. There's often wear and tear on the side of a painted door. The people who decorated this home left the side of the door in it's original wood to avoid chips and simultaneously created a lovely relaxed feel.

Anything that stands out to you?

A couple of things I recognise and love: 'City of Champions' print. New York print. IKEA's HECTAR wall lights in the bedroom and HECTAR floor light in the sitting room.  Thonet 214 chairs.

Have a lovely day!


  1. Our weekend was relaxing..after two months of working, shop running, traveling we finally stopped and spent weekend at home, doing things we planned weeks ago (like making our photowall from pictureframes and our photos, playing videogames etc. =D ).
    I like shapes of the home, the walls which are not strictly square or rectangle..and big kitchen..I always wanted one, maybe in few years.. =)
    Btw., does anyone know from where is the paper lamp above the living/sitting room?

    Have an inspirating start of new week =),

  9. Hi Skane, hope you are doing great. First of all I loved your collections, especially that vintage black leather sofa. I checked on ebay, Lauritz but I failed to find it. Vintage collections always rocks and I had a sofa which has been used by my grandparents. Now, I re-polished it and placed in our living room. That dark brownish sofa makes our living space more colorful and attractive.

  10. i am in love with the light fixture in the bedroom, the one hanging from the ceiling, any idea where that is from?
