my scandinavian home: A calming swedish home in shades of grey

A calming swedish home in shades of grey

Friday, 3 June 2016

It's friday - oh la la la, let's go dancing! But before that, I think we should all take a second to admire the beautiful shades of grey in this Swedish home. The nuances range from darkest charcoal, to the palest shade of grey, seen most of all in the kitchen. The scheme is also continued throughout the home using stonewashed grey linen,  sheepskin throws, rugs and other furniture and accessories. What a lovely space, and such a calming way to end the week, don't you think?!

....and relax!

Get the look: kitchen - Koushi pendant lamp, Smeg fridge, linen tablecloth and napkins, Äng vase. Hallway - gotland sheepskin throw. sitting room / office - coffee table,
Tivoli radio , LISABO desk.

Quick note on decorating with shades of grey - choose nuances along the same spectrum. For example skimming stone and elephants breath compliment each other really nicely and 2000N works beautifully for floors, especially against crisp white walls (using a gloss finish will help bounce light around). Likewise combining white linen with grey pillows (all available here) and a dark grey blanket and cushion (as seen in this bedroom) is super calming too.

A few other links I'm loving this weekend:

Inspiration for two tone walls (when one colour just isn't enough!).

Nina Hoist's terrace looking out over a Norwegian fjord.

22 of the prettiest outdoor showers (*sigh* - one day!). And this seaside photograph / print.

Pretty bamboo pendant lights.

From the archives - you might want to take a little summer loving inspiration from these 'summer cottages'. It's so warm and sunny here right now that I'd seriously recommend nipping on a flight to Sweden this weekend and join me for a cool dip in the sea.  See you here?!

Have a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Gorgeous home! Sophie x

  2. Such a beautiful living space. I love Swedish design - always so modern and elegant! Their colour palettes are always inspired as well; the base of neutrals with a few soft accent colours, simply gorgeous.

    Have a lovely weekend,

  4. With respect and total usual delight with your site...I'm just about all grey-ed out!

  5. Another beautiful home! I'm slightly transfixed by the sofa - I don't suppose you recognise where it's from?
