my scandinavian home: Monochrome elegance in a stunning Lyon apartment

Monochrome elegance in a stunning Lyon apartment

Friday, 5 February 2016

Hello Friday, how lovely to see you! I'm soooo tired today (6 a.m starts are not for me no matter what people say!) but it's nothing one of these  can't fix this evening, and my mum and dad are over from London on a visit, so I've got very special company to enjoy it with too. I'm going to polish off the week with this super elegant apartment in Lyon, France. Not only does the space have absolutely stunning bones (period features, large floor to ceiling windows, herringbone floor etc,.) but the French owners have also artfully furnished it with designer classics, fascinating artwork and the odd vintage piece too. Quite a space, don't you think?!

Could you imagine living here?

Items I know and love: Knoll Platner table and chairs, the Beni Ourain rug is very similar, vintage kitchen utensils, wooden spoons and chopping boards. This rustic bench is similar. Washed linen bedding in charcoal (love this) and white.

More super elegant spaces include a sophisticated Swedish apartment in dark tones and a black and navy Stockholm pad.

Speaking of design - I'm often being asked about blog design. I can highly recommend Blog Milk Shop, who  designed my blog many moons ago and Ana and I still collaborate today. You can choose from custom and off the peg collections

I was thrilled to read this review of my book yesterday (it sums up the essence beautifully!). Susann of Purple Area, who's Swedish home features, shared this fab picture on instagram and her blog too! All so exciting. Don't forget to enter to win a signed copy here (give-away open to all until midnight on Sunday). 

Right, I think that's me over and out for the weekend. I hope you have a fab couple of days and I'll see you Monday!


  1. Hello, how are you? Sorry for my english. I'm from Catalonia and I like very much scandinavian style. I see your blog every day and I take ideas to decorate the flat where we will live in a few months.Thank you!!;)

  2. This apartment ticks all my boxes, stunning period features, gorgeous collection of artwork and love the colour scheme, so yes I could happily live here.

  3. Åh, vilket golv! Gillar att de har låtit det vara matt så det blir en lite rustikare känsla.
