my scandinavian home: A sophisticated Swedish home in dark shades

A sophisticated Swedish home in dark shades

Thursday, 7 January 2016

This lovely Swedish home captures the essence of 'dark broody' interiors perfectly. It's been artfully decorated in shades of dark grey and a spectrum of greens from olive to emerald. The result is a truly sophisticated and elegant space captured by one of my favourite Swedish photographers - Kristofer Johnsson. Let's take a look around....

Photography: Kristofer Johnsson. Stylist: Alexandra Ogonowski. Featured in Residence magazine. Found via Coco Lapine with thanks.
So beautiful don't you think?

Get the look: tolix chairssheepskin rug, Kånken children's rucksack, dark grey linen bedding. I can just see one of my favourite lamps - the Flos Copycat peeping into the corner of the picture in the bedroom too! For similar paint colours try Farrow & Ball darks.

Jennfier Hagler's fab wishlist captures these tones perfectly!

I also love this dark grey, blue and green Swedish home, the dramatic stairwell in Marie Olsson Nylander's home, and an elegant black and navy home also captured by Kristofer.

It's enough to make me want to dabble in a few dark walls and pieces! - do you have any in your home?

Other links I love today include:

My eldest daughter is moving into her own bedroom and we're having loads of fun picking out a moodboard. This colour scheme is spot on! So pretty don't you think?

Love the idea of bringing rainy days indoors.

Colour block navy with crisp white in the bedroom.

Take me away to this pretty red cabin in the snow.

Have a lovely day!

    1. The greens are beautiful - I especially love the olive and emerald.

  2. ahhhh, it's the alter ego of your blog! LOVE. i adore the style of all the spaces you post, but secretly always want them just a bit more, rich. the addition of those greys, greens and blacks ... stunning. moody scan style - love, love, love.

    1. I love 'alter ego' - you're so right! I think you'll be seeing quite a lot more dark this year, it's slowly but surely sweeping across Scandinavian interiors :)

  3. I'm increasingly attracted dark moody looks.....!
