my scandinavian home: A calm swedish home in grey and white

A calm swedish home in grey and white

Tuesday, 26 January 2016

When it's cold outside, the allure of staying indoors and padding around in slippers drinking tea all day is just so appealing, don't you think?! This lovely home in Gothenburg is like a calm oasis in the heart of the city - and with that vast kakelugn (masonry oven), a perfect cocoon from the snow outside the window too! Let's take a tour...













Photography: Anders Bergstedt. Styling: Stilorum. Entrance.

What a perfect home. Loving the original wood floors, large windows and high ceilings. But also the quirky touches - like the 'hand key-holder' in the hallway! (Areaware sells all kinds of hands like this including a hand dock, hand hook, and even a bestow hand!).

Other items I know and love: SINNERLIG pendant lamp, this watercolour / auqarelle wall hanging is similar (also seen in this home), keep an eye out here for a bumling light in brass, white linen bedding, cactus I print, children's bed, hektar lamp.

Does anyone know where the wooden chair and pendant lamp in the bedroom are from? I'd love to know!

I'm gearing up for a quick trip to London tomorrow to meet my publisher (my booklaunches in just two weeks - so exciting!). I can't wait to see my little niece again too, I miss those baby cheeks! I'm also looking forward to a great curry (one of the things I miss most about London is great Indian take-aways!).

Last week I mentioned I was listening to Swedish singer Melissa Horn and I had a flood of e-mails asking for more tips.  So, today's tip is Norwegian singer / songwriter Ane Brun - I could listen to her everyday!

Have a lovely day!

    1. I wish it was my home Em, but sadly it's not. It was artfully decorated by Stil o rum. The bedroom is lovely isn't it? /Niki

    1. Thank you for your lovely words about my blog / post. Unfortunately I'm not sure where the table is from, perhaps someone else on here can help?

  4. Very cosy apartment. I like the most a combination of Swedish classic and modern in the interior.

  6. We absolutely love it. The children's room looks very cosy and lovely.
    Hope you have a great time here in London!
    We are preparing our stuff to visit Sweden next month. We are super excited and looking forward to seeing the snow.

  7. Wow! What a stunning home. Each room is so beautiful. I just bought the Sinnerlig light this weekend - love it. Can't decide yet if I put it in my bedroom or living room.

  8. I love this. But, um, the kids room...completely unrealistic. Not one box, drawer, cube for clothes. Bum pretty sure kids wear clothes (and lots of em)! Just sayin'.
    But I still love for someone's pretend life! Haha and your blog is lovely!
