my scandinavian home: Two lovely Swedish kitchen tours

Two lovely Swedish kitchen tours

Friday, 15 January 2016


There's nothing like a warm, cheerful kitchen to brighten up mornings (and cosy-up evenings). One of my Mum's friends calls the kitchen 'the engine room of the house' - so true don't you think?! To round off the week I thought we could take a tour of two Swedish kitchens. Any Swede will tell you that this is a very classic shape for a kitchen in a city apartment - (eller hur svensk kompisar?). And yet these two spaces have been decorated and organised with subtle differences - both lovely in their own way. The first belongs to interior and food stylist and owner of shop Vintage Fabriken - Linda Hansson and the second apartment is currently on the market through Stadshem. Could you imagine enjoying a slow weekend breakfast here?

I especially love the colours in the first kitchen - with the green, yellow and blue - so warm and inviting. A few tips on where thing are from - 'Willow boughs' wallpaper by William Morris, the children's chair is by Tripp Trapp, RANARP wall/ clamp lamp, oatmeal linen table cloth, Rörstrand mon amie tea cup,   white marble mortar and pestle, Le Sac paper bag, blue kitchen aid.

The second space is also lovely - so calm! Source vintage chopping boards here, This is a great source for vintage bread bins and tin boxes. If you're a fan of wallpaper you'll like the rest of the home too - check it out here.

Other links I like from around the web today:

How cool are these fun black and white prints for children's rooms. In fact - this entire children / Mum blog is pretty great (love these kids sunglasses - might try to squeeze into a pair myself!).

Love these DIY mid-century planters - project for the weekend perhaps?!

With all this snow outside my door I'm thinking tonight could be a cosy one on the sofa eating this brown ale ice-cream with salty caramel and honeyed peanuts or perhaps pumpkin cookie butter ice-cream. Mmmmm!

This home in the outskirts of Malmö is for sale - I'm tempted to go to the viewing on Sunday - could you image the potential?!

I hope you have a really great weekend (up to anything fun?). See you Monday!

  7. Torn between "remodelling" our rented apartment kitchen or leaving it and putting all my effort in designing our new fabulous kitchen for our new home (moving in summertime, fingers crossed). Just goes to show you don't need a massive kitchen to have a gorgeous space. Even with a child in the mix.

  9. Hi Niki - thank you for the mention. I love your blog and visit often - only problem is that each time I visit I feel like re-decroating my entire house! The places you share are just so beautiful! If you do go that that house viewing and buy it (so much potential, I agree) - I'd LOVE to see what you do with it! Thank you again.
