my scandinavian home: A relaxed, atmospheric family home in Malmö

A relaxed, atmospheric family home in Malmö

Friday, 12 December 2014

I'm so proud of my adopted home town of Malmö. Having moved to Sweden from London ten years ago, I've seen it grow into a thriving hub with a flourishing creative community. Yesterday's post of my girls' bedroom was the result of a collaboration with two talented Malmö girls and today's fabulous home tour is also here in Malmö. The relaxed family space belongs to former model Malin Persson, blogger for Elle Decoration and self-confessed creative multi-tasker, her husband Damiano and children Tiago, Milo and Cleo. The family recently moved back to Sweden after a period in Rome, Italy. The two worlds have come together in the form of this beautiful, unique space, decorated with a mix of  fabulous vintage and antique finds and atmospheric colours.

What a beautiful, relaxed family home, don't you think? 

I love that children's toys can be seen through out the house (more pictures here). I also like the dark colours - especially in the cute little girls bedroom. A similar colour scheme has been used in this and this home.

Another thing that stands out to me is the use of clothing as decoration. A negligée hung in the window of the bathroom softens the feel of the room and adds a romantic touch, as does the lovely dress hanging on the mirror in the bedroom.

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Today the sun will set at 3.25 pm - but really, it's never truly going to get light. This is why I'm eating my way through a packet of chocolate hob nobs. The good news? It's Saint Lucia here tomorrow, a festival of light in which a girl wearing a crown of candles will lead a procession who will then sing, and we'll enjoy a feast of Pepparkaka, saffron buns and glögg (mulled wine). It's one of my favoruite Swedish traditions.

I hope you have a lovely weekend too!

  9. Permainan Roma Rapuh di Babak Kedua
    Agen Bola Terpercaya melaporkan, AS Roma gagal lolos ke babak 16 besar Liga Champions 2014/15 setelah menyerah 0-2 ketika menjamu Manchester City di matchday pemungkas Grup E, Kamis (11/12). Salah satu penyebab kegagalan pasukan Rudi Garcia adalah betapa rapuhnya mereka setelah jeda sebuah laga.

    Total, Roma kebobolan 14 gol dalam enam laga. Enam dari tujuh gol terakhir yang mengoyak gawang mereka semuanya tercipta di babak kedua.

    Enam dari tujuh gol itu didapat Roma ketika tumbang melawan City di Olimpico, imbang 1-1 di kandang CSKA Moscow, takluk 0-2 di markas Bayern Munich serta kembali dibantai Munich 1-7 saat bertindak sebagai tuan rumah pada matchday 3.

    Roma pun finis peringkat tiga dan terlempar ke Liga Europa. Sementara itu, City mengamankan posisi dua dan menemani Bayern ke putaran berikutnya.

  10. Curry Sayangkan Komentar Bos Warriors Terhadap Mantan Pelatih
    Agen Bola Terpercaya melaporkan, Point guard Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry yakin bahwa kritikan yang diutarakan pemilik klub, Joe Lacob terkait mantan pelatih Mark Jackson bisa memberikan gangguan tersendiri buat tim.

    Beberapa hari lalu, Lacob mengungkapkan ketidakmampuan Jackson membangun komunikasi yang baik dengan orang lain dalam tim menjadi alasan mendasar di balik keputusan untuk memecat mantan pelatih itu pada akhir musim lalu.

    Namun, pemilik Warriors telah menyampaikan permintaan maafnya atas komentar tersebut, dan menegaskan bahwa Jackson telah melakukan pekerjaan yang hebat selama menangani Warriors.

    "Saya pikir itu patut disayangkan, gangguan dari apa yang sedang terjadi sekarang. Jelas, kami bermain dengan baik, dan Anda bisa menilai tentang perbedaan antara tahun ini dan tahun lalu, tetapi Anda sedang berbicara tentang dua pelatih hebat (Jackson dan pelatih sekarang Steve Kerr)," terang Curry.

  11. Does anyone know how I could find out what colour paint the office is?
