my scandinavian home: A beautiful Swedish home in calm, muted tones

A beautiful Swedish home in calm, muted tones

Monday, 19 October 2015

Monday again? how did that happen?! No fear though, as I've just found the perfect apartment to take the edge of the start of the week! It comes in the shape of this beautiful Swedish space with light wood floors, high ceilings and original period features and decorated in calm tones of grey and green throughout. Warm wood, cosy sheepskins and chunky knits add just the right amount of comfort for Autumn too. Let's take a tour...

Beautiful! I could definitely see myself padding around here, how about you?! Actually, it's for sale - so that could be a reality for someone!

My eyes are on the kakelugn (masonry ovens) and the wall lamp. Is there anything that stands out to you? 

Quick guide on where things are from: Kitchen: find similar industrial pendant lamps here and this vintage slate blackboard is similar, Thonet 214 chairs (15% discount with MYSCAN), L:A Bruket hand soap, Nespresso espresso coffee machine. Sitting room: Mantis wall lampsheepskin rug. Bedroom: Natural linen bedding, Hektar wall lamp.

In case you missed it - I slipped in a cheeky weekend post - a book review of Ellie Tennant's latest book 'Chic Boutiquers at Home' and a sneak peek inside the beautiful Danish home of designer Kristina Dam. I was really excited and honoured to have my own home featured in Ellie's first book 'Design Bloggers at Home' last year.

Oh and Benjamin Moore has just announced their colour of the year 2016. Thoughts?! 

Hope you have a great start to the week!

PS Does anyone else suddenly get the fear on a Sunday evening about all the things you need to do the following week. And then when you wake up you realise it's all under control (touch wood) and you even have time for a slow coffee (love this IG account)?! Even still...


  1. I love the apartment especially the bathroom (I think I am obsessed with them lately) I am really into sage green, My dining room, and kitchen are both done in shades of sage... Not sure how I feel about white as the color of the year 2016...Autumn is so colorful here in Wisconsin (USA) and knowing the snow will fly and I will soon be looking at a lot of white and grey tones doesn't make me feel all that happy. None the less, white is a nice base for layering other tones, so I know it is a good choice for interiors. I guess I am officially, on the fence!

    1. So interesting to hear your thoughts about the colour of the year. I haven't made up my mind yet either although white will always have a big space in my heart (and home!). PS I love sage too....

  2. The pictures are so inspirational and stylish! Love them!
    Happy blogging,
