my scandinavian home: The wonderful home of a Swedish food blogger

The wonderful home of a Swedish food blogger

Monday, 15 June 2015

Hello! I hope you had a great weekend?! Out of interest, do you follow any food blogs? I've been pinning yummy looking recipes on my food board for a while now (admittedly most involve either eggs or avocados!). I recently started following Swedish food blogger, journalist and editor Waltzing Matilde (delicious recipes by a Swede in english - what's not to love?!) And today I'm really excited to be able to share a sneak peek into her wonderful home styled / captured by Tina Hellberg and Idha Lindhag. The first thing I noticed of course - is her love of blue, which is evident throughout. it creates such a cool, calm effect and works beautifully against the reds and pinks. She's furnished the home with a lovely mix of Swedish antiques, mid-century finds and items collected on her travels. What a lovely home, don't you think?

Lovely!

Blue really is turning to be the accent colour of 2015. We're seeing so much of it right now. Do you remember this Danish apartment from a few weeks back?  And I love the bedroom wall in this swedish space and blue accessories in this pretty apartment. I also love the blue sofa in the home of Sofia Wood (another Swedish food blogger). For a similar blue paint colour seen in the walls of Matilde's home try Parma Gray or Lulworth Blue.

If you're stuck for what to eat this week I can highly recommend looking through some of the mouthwatering recipes on Matilde's blog. Some of my favourites include Swedish pancakes with cream cheese, lemon curd and cardamom, Swedish chokladbollar with a twist and a meatball sandwich with beetroot, apples and capers. Mmmmmm!

Thank you so much to Idha Lindhag for sending me these fab photos. She always finds the most wonderful homes to photograph including Jade Jagger's Goa hangout, and this and this fabulous Swedish space one.

Have a great start to the week! I'm on my way to New York right now - soooo excited!

  6. I really like the lights in the kitchen and the wall paint in the bedroom.

    I have a food blog, and I have discovered that food photography is very difficult! Luckily, my blog is focused on free from, vegan and paleo food reviews (my sons have lots of allergies. It started as a way of recording the foods they liked) so the photography is less important than a full ingredients list!
