my scandinavian home: A lovely Swedish home with a mix of old and new

A lovely Swedish home with a mix of old and new

Wednesday, 17 February 2016

This morning I tiptoed out of our cabana before the rest of my family was awake to write a post. Normally I'm terrible in the mornings but, it seems when I have a fresh pot of coffee and this view waiting it's not so difficult after all (think I'm going to get a shock when I return to Sweden!). Speaking of the North, I couldn't resist sharing one more home tour from Carina Olander's fab photography portfolio (did you see yesterday's post?). This Funkis style home in Karlskoga belongs to Anna, Andreas and their children and is a stones throw from Möckelsjön lake, with it's sandy beaches and beautiful parkland.  The space has been simply decorated for a lovely relaxed vibe.

Photography: Carina Olander, shared with kind permission. Styling: Anna Truelsen / Hus o Hem. 

I love the white and wood mix - beautiful!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look: New York 'my guide to manhatten' poster, Smeg fridge / freezer, Source a vintage Poul Henningsen PH5 pendant light here, classic Swedish brass candle holder from 1950's, dark blue linen bedding (this is so beautiful!), perspex storage boxes.

Other links I love today:

How about this dark green velvet sofa and some fab plants...?

4 charming children's rooms with a vintage look (that will fit with the rest if your home).

There's that black Mooi lamp again (also seen in yesterday's post) - we're starting to see more black Z1 pendant lights too, like the one in this fab dining room.

How appealing does this coffee and book in bed look right now?!

How pretty are these fox gloves against the blue?

Right, better go off and wake the crazies!

Have a lovely day!


  1. Just find your blog. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Happy to hear! Thank you for saying hi with a comment! I hope you continue to enjoy the posts I share. /Niki

  2. Love the dining table and chairs!


  3. I'm starting to see that type of rug more and more. Is this the
    LOHALS from IKEA?

    1. Hi Hilde, yes it is, well spotted! I've got the same rug in my home under our dining table, it's great. Niki

  4. The bedroom and the open closet are such a nice clean look. Thanks for the ideas!

    1. I absolutely love the bedroom. I'm often wondering whether to get an open closet like this, it would be so much easier to find everything! The problem is, I'm not sure mine would be so neat....
