my scandinavian home: A picture of calm in a Swedish home

A picture of calm in a Swedish home

Thursday, 26 November 2015

There is something beautiful about the simplicity of this space. It helps that the entire apartment has the most stunning blonde wood floors and large windows too. But to me, the most striking element is the kitchen - loving the black cabinet doors. They make such a striking contrast with the rest of the open-plan space. Although the home has been home-staged for sell -  there really are people that can and do live in this minimalist way and, being a rather messy person myself, I truly appreciate the aesthetics, it creates an incredibly calm, serene feel, don't you think? Let's take a tour...

Is there anything that stands out to you?

A few items I know and love: 7 series chairs, Dualit toaster, Artichoke pendant light, white linen bedding with black trim.

More lovely monochrome spaces include the striking minimalist home of a Danish architect, a truly fabulous home in Fontainbleu, France and lovely pics from the home of a Swedish stylist.

The IKEA refugee shelters are a game changer.

I'm excited to be featured in Elle Decor Italy this week (interview in Italian).
