my scandinavian home: A delightful Swedish home with dark wood features

A delightful Swedish home with dark wood features

Friday, 6 November 2015

Hello Friday, how great to see you! I realised the other day that we've been living in our house in southern sweden for over 8 years! When we first moved in one side of the interior was covered in dark wood walls and all the doors were made from the same material. Bit by bit we painted over the wood and it made a huge difference to the light. Some wood features still remain though and I like the mid-century vibe it brings to the look. This home in Gothenburg, Sweden bears the same subtle wood touches and is complimented by beautiful soft shades of grey, mid-century furniture and touches of brass. Loving the plants throughout too.

What do you think? Is this your kind of style?

A few items I know and love: Aquarelle canvas wall hangingEktorp sofa with a relaxed linen cover (try Bemz). Hay strap mirror. I love this pair of mid-century brass floor lamps. Hay polygon quilt. Source a similar gold picture frame here.

More inspiration for decorating with wood in the archive here (scroll passed the first one). 

My Scandinavian Home is celebrating four years this week (can you believe it?!). To thank you all for your wonderful support I've organised a present for you. But you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what it is... oh the suspense!

I'm also holding a give-away all weekend on instagram to win a beautiful elskling key pouch from A.Andreassen Design - a new online store selling scandinavian heritage slippers and key pouches - enter here

In the meantime, here are the five most popular posts of all time on My Scandinavian Home:

The Danish home on a hill
The cool home of a Norwegian blogger
A beautiful Dutch stylist's home ready for Christmas

Oooo, love them all! Do you have a favourite?

I had the pleasure of chatting to the guys over at the online homeware store Houseology this week (remember this 'Scandic Design' post?) you can read the full interview here if you'd like.

See you tomorrow!

    ani from ani hearts

    1. I'm so happy you found my blog Äni! I'm a big fan of bloglovin' too. Happy Friday!

  3. Hi, I clicked on the link to your house (can I just say, I love your house!), and noticed in your post about your girls' room (11 Dec 14) a picture of one of your girls playing with some wooden blocks. Could you please tell me where the blocks are from or what they are called? My son plays with Jenga blocks (which are a game in themselves, but he uses them as building blocks) but there aren't enough of them. Your daughter looked like she has loads!

    Love your blog, as always!

    Thanks, Lise

    1. Hi Lise, thank you! The wooden blocks were passed on to us by a friend and both my girls absolutely love them - they're called 'kapla bricks'. They're really lightweight and great for building - they sometimes build towers right up to the ceiling! You can buy them on Amazon Hope you find some for your son!

  4. This is so beautiful! Loving the floor. But the quilt is "Mega Dot" I guess, from Hay. I have the same one in our bedroom and questroom, warm recommendation.

    1. Hi Suvi, thanks for pointing this out. I'll update the post. Love the quilt, lucky you to have it in your bedroom!
