my scandinavian home: A monochrome apartment in Malmö with a little outdoor oasis

A monochrome apartment in Malmö with a little outdoor oasis

Tuesday, 28 June 2016

Hello! We're back from a lovely Swedish midsummer (and even managed to sneak in a few days to Florence (á deux!), an Italian city I've always dreamed of going to. What a beautiful place? Have you been? I'll miss the tranquil Florentine villa we stayed at too. Fortunately the sun is shining in Malmö too today so I thought it would be apt to pay homage to my home city with this fab apartment on Davidshalls torg - a lovely square in the centre of town. Originally from Southern Sweden, Carin & Christian were immediately drawn to the big windows and high ceilings of the late 19th century build. The open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room area is also perfect for a couple who love to entertain. The apartment has been lovingly renovated and furnished over the space of three years with an industrial-style kitchen with plenty of workspace, and a monochrome scheme throughout, broken off by warm cognac leather armchairs.  Let's not forget the greenhouse in the communal garden for outdoor dining (you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in the countryside - what an oasis?!).....

On a cooler winter's day there's always time for a quick coffee by the window too! 

Oh and did I mention it's for sale...come and join us in Malmö?! 

Get the look: kitchen / dining - Lilla Åland chairs, string shelves, brush and scissors by Hay. Sitting room - Source leather cognac armchairs here - I love this one - although there's only one...(hurry?!) Kubus 4 candleholder. Outside - beige stonewashed linen tablecloth.

Greenhouses are truly having a moment. And such a great idea too - they're perfect for lunch and supper al fresco when it's slightly too nippy under the open-sky alone (or even pouring down with rain) - and you don't even need a backyard - a friend of mine has a beautiful one on her roof (must see if she'll let me photograph it one day?)!

I also like this greenhouse in the garden of a Swedish house overlooking a lake, a beautiful one I stumbled across on a recent visit to the Swedish island of Ven, and a greenhouse with beautiful floors.

Time to build one in your own backyard? 

Have a lovely day!
