my scandinavian home: An elegant, understated modern farmhouse

An elegant, understated modern farmhouse

Tuesday, 5 April 2016

I was awoken by the eery sound of a ships fog horn cutting through the dense fog over the Öresund strait. It definitely made a change from the harsh trill of my mobile alarm clock, but being a sailor, the sound always makes me fill a little uneasy! The fog's lifted now and so have my spirits - mainly due to stumbling across this beautiful space designed by Griffiths Design Studio. Situated on the Mornington Peninsula, Southeast of Melbourne, Main Ridge Farmhouse is a lesson in elegant, understated style. The rich texture from the French oak floor, wood clad wall and sheepskins add warmth to create a relaxed modern home which reflects it's rural surroundings. Let's take a peek....

What a lovely, elegant space!  I especially like the wooden side-table - it has such character!

Is there anything that stands out to you about this farmhouse?

Items I know and love: sitting room - grasshopper floor lamp, rug by Halcyon Lake, muuto dots and vase, this cognac leather cushion is similar. Kate Moss Book, wishbone chair, sheepskin throw. Bedroom: Eames house bird, this grey linen throw is similar. By lassen frame box.

For more understated homes in muted tones try my monochrome archive (warning - it contains 107 homes - it could take a while!).  

Have a lovely day!


  1. I love the rug in the living room. Any idea where it came from?

    1. I'm afraid not, but hopefully someone else can help us? It's lovely!

    2. Just seen someone commented on instagram that the rug is by Halcyon Lake -

  2. Such a clean spare space. Love those floors!

  3. Lovely. I like that the black wall in the hallway looks weathered while the black wall in the living room looks like it was just painted.
