my scandinavian home: Over to the dark side in a Swedish space

Over to the dark side in a Swedish space

Friday, 4 December 2015

It's no secret that dark interiors are becoming more and more in focus. This elegant Swedish apartment has been artfully home staged for sale as part of the new Kajtorget Dalénum project. I absolutely love the mix of dark grey, blue and green walls. It's amazing how items pop out against the darker backdrop, you notice pictures and wall hangings so much more! I have several black walls in my own home and although dramatic and cocoon-like, I can't emphasise enough just how important it is to double up on lighting - take note if you're considering going over to the dark side! having said that, the results are beautiful, as you can see in this home....

Do you have a favourite wall colour between these? I find the green very calming...

Similar paint colours: Railings or Black-Blue, St. Paul's blue, Green smoke,
 
Items I know and love: Source lovely macrame wall hangings here, chunky knit blanket, SINNERLIG light, linen table cloth, superfront cupboard doors, MUUTO side table, the koushi lampshade is similar to the one over the bed, linen bedding. I like these brass wall lights.

Other homes with dramatic dark walls include a truly fabulous dark grey and white home, subtle green and grey walls in a Norwegian home and industrial with warm wood in a Swedish home.

Could you go over to the dark side?

I'm flying back to Sweden today after a flying visit to London (to meet my adorable new niece!). For those of you feeling a little festive, I haven't forgotten you - I promise to try to stop by later today or tomorrow morning with some lovely Scandinavian Christmas inspiration....'oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful.....'

Have a great end to your week!

  1. I love that Pose No 19 poster. Do you know where I can get it from?

  2. I love that the leather and the wood in the first couple photos are almost the same color, but their different textures. Nice and toasty looking.

  3. I've got a very similar shade of grey as the one in the first photo in my kitchen on just one wall, and it works beautifully in there to give the room some depth, as the rest of the walls are white. It actually recedes, so that the room looks larger.

    I also have dark grey on wall in my bedroom but I'm thinking about switching it out for a moody green. But which one? I've already dismissed Green Smoke by Farrow and Ball, as it's a bit on the light side for my tastes.

    I think this image might be from Ikea but whoever it is, the shade of green they've used is beautiful:
