my scandinavian home: An elegant Swedish space with a mid-century touch

An elegant Swedish space with a mid-century touch

Thursday, 30 April 2015

I do love a little high ceiling elegance and this apartment embraces it by keeping the walls white and the look pared-back, adding a only few select mid-century pieces. Combine this with original white washed beams and floaty linen curtains as room dividers and the result is a serene, grown-up living space. My eye is on the detail too - instead of one large landscape picture above the dining table the owners have used three portrait images. Herbs hang in the window and plants and flowers can be seen in every single frame. Lucky it's spring - as everything we need is right outside our door right?! Oh and did I mention this space is for sale....?

A little about where things are from: Source hanging plant holders here. Mid-century furniture is available at Lauritz and Live Auctioneers. The pretty brass light in the kitchen is similar to the golden bell and the chairs are series 7.

Other homes with a cool mid-century touch include this Berlin space, an apartment in gothenburg and this truly fabulous house. Or for something completely different -how about this surfers home in Australia? Now, that's brightened up my day no end, how about you?!

It's a short week here in Sweden as it's Valborg (or walpurgess night). A pagan tradition,  villagers gather around bonfires across the country to ward of witches, who were believed to ride on their broomsticks to higher ground and cast evil spells on the eve of 30th April. And tomorrow it's the May day spring festival - and I love any talk of spring!

But I would never leave you high and dry without a post oh no!  To celebrate, I'm holding an exciting give-away, so make sure you stop by - it'll be open to everyone!

Have a lovely day!

PS There's a 5 minute clip of me on TV channel Arte, showing my home and talking about the home  if you fancy seeing it here- (in german).

  5. I'm curious as to where the paintings (photographs?) above the dining room table come from, or whether they're originals. Do you happen to know? They're beautiful!
