my scandinavian home: A small Swedish space in winter whites

A small Swedish space in winter whites

Monday, 4 January 2016

Happy new year! I have a feeling 2016 will be a great year for us exciting! It's suddenly got cold here in Southern Sweden (- 4 degrees C brrrrrr!) and yesterday we received a light dusting of snow so I thought I'd kick off the year with this fresh 'winter' home. The small apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden has been decorated in whites throughout and softened with cosy sheepskin throws and cotton blankets. I love the touches of black too. Perfect for a room which combines both sitting room and bedroom - don't you think?

Lovely! Despite the trend towards darks and brights I still love a calm white space.

But really - my eyes are on those croissants - Mmmm! Late breakfast anyone?

Get the look: Karlstad sofa, rattan chair, fluffy white sheepskin throw, this industrial stool is similar as is this grey linen throw and these vintage mirrors (and just how pretty is this vintage art deco mirror?). Can anyone tell us where the black floor lamp and coffee tables are from, I'd love to know?

More small space inspiration here and here (and remember the world's smallest luxury home?!). In case it's monochrome inspiration you're after - this is one of my favourite black and white home tours of all time.

This morning I've really enjoyed catching up on all the posts I've missed from some of my favourite blogs. Here's a round-up of my favourites: Stil Inspiration's winter table setting, a DIY hall wall with a strip of black and how to bring Pantone's colours of 2016 into your home.

It's great to be back! 

Have a lovely day!


  1. I like it! I would hung a white chandelier here

  2. So lovely again. The art deco mirrors you linked are beautiful aswell, I love the ones in the flat too, do you know where I could find those kinds to buy in Europe/Germany?

    I am wondering though, there have been quite a few narrow/twin beds in those studios. Is this a common thing for people to have or just a way for realtors to show off the space..?

    1. You could try searching Etsy in Germany for mirrors like these (I agree, they're lovely!)? Your comment re the single beds is so interesting. It could well be for styling purpose but also maybe because they're very small one room apartments. Peraonally I think i'd rather go for a double sofa bed in this situation :)

  3. The lamp could be by Bernard Schottlander who created the Mantis series of lamps in England in 1951.
