my scandinavian home: A beautiful Swedish space in calm greys

A beautiful Swedish space in calm greys

Monday, 1 June 2015

I've found a way to beat the Monday blues - bring on the greys! This home is the absolute picture of calm with it's all grey colour pallette. And looking at the home tour you'd never guess it's only 25 metres square (270 feet square) - which is itsy bitsy! So what's the trick? Joanna Bagge has decorated it with the same colour theme throughout which gives the space a sense of coherence, the sofa cushions are stored under the sofa-bed by night - ready for the daytime transformation. The dining table is extendable for guests. Wall to ceiling wardrobes have been installed the entire length of the hallway, and the entire home is clutter free. And I bet there's a TV hiding in that lovely cupboard - what do you reckon? Wonderful inspiration for anyone living in a small space or loving grey today!

I could kick of the week here, how about you?

I see they've got a book on noma - one of the world's finest restaurants, in Copenhagen. Oh how I'd love to go! Have you been?

Other details I love - the fresh bunch of peonies on the chair ('tis the season - yay!), the bentwood Thonet chairs. Miro miro  mirror.  Angle cushions / pillow. Hay gym hook (used as towel hook), House Doctor shelves with brass fittings. Hay Bent Wood mirror, Pina low table and beech tote bag (in hallway). Hay work lamp in brass. Artecnica Trianen pendant light. Soft linen bedding. Try Strong White for a similar floor colour.

If you're after more grey inspiration today I'm loving this Stockholm pad, a fabulous all grey Australian home and a small Swedish space.

Have a lovely start to the week!

  1. I absolutely LOVE your interiors posts. They are beautiful, filled with wonderful, do-able ideas. I look forward to seeing them every time! But I wonder if there might be someone out there willing to jump on the bandwagon and write a seminal book on "Interiors Greys"! How long will the ubiquitous grey theme continue, I wonder. Again, with respect, from an avid fan of My Scandinavian Home.
