Could you go grey like this fab (small) Swedish apartment?

It's pouring with rain here this morning - in that cosy way you only feel when you actually don't have to go out in it?! I was actually planning on posting something vibrant today but actually this beautiful grey Swedish apartment matches the day far better  - so I'll park the other one for tomorrow's post! There's a lot to be said for grey - it's calm, it's elegant and it's sort of 'adult' in a way that I love. Do you know what I mean? This Swedish apartment combines grey (in the form of doors, skirting boards, radiator covers, window frames and textiles) with black and white and a hint of cognac leather. And there's some fab lighting going on too! Let's take a tour....

I love how the kitchen cabinets extend around the corner - what a clever way to add work surface and storage in a small space ( this home is a mere 38 square metres / 409 square foot)?

A few items I know and love: dining - Thonet chairs (absolutely love these!), aim suspension lights. sitting room - Sinnerlig daybed, linen throw, sheepskin throw, sinnerlig stool, leather ottoman. bedroom - charcoal linen pillow cases, light grey linen sheet (in fact my latest linen love has got to be anything and everything from this etsy shop - be still my beating heart!!

After something a little er brighter today? Why not dig into my (dangerous) archives for a few hours and check out this white Brooklyn home with vibrant touches, a Swedish home with black floors and fun, colourful touches, and the happy home of a Dutch illustrator (you can always count on the Dutch for some wonderful pops of colour!). 

By the way, I loved the discussion in the comment section yesterday (a home tour not to be missed by the way)  - so interesting! If you have any constructive thoughts on the homes I show, please do leave a comment in the section below and join the chat! It always adds a huge amount - plus it makes my day too!

Have a lovely day!

You can stop raining now Sweden.

Have to agree re wrap around kitchen cabinets, upper cabinets define kitchen area, and allows the remaining cabinets to extend to living area, very clever,very cool

Hi everyone! Where can I find a similar table like the one in the sitting room next to the sinnerling stool? I also like the lamp next the sofa! Thank you

Does anyone know the brand of the bubbly cactus pot in photo 6?

Hi Marika, I'm not sure where this one is from (maybe someone else can help?) but a Google search for 'black tray table' throws up quite a few lovely tables that are similar. Hope this helps!

I'm hoping someone can tell us too - I love it!

The combination of grey, white, black and cognac is the best! My dreamy apartment :-)

I think it has to be "Cloudy" by Hanna Wessman, DBKD. Great looking apartment!

The grey in this home is great isn't it? Love the decor too!

My Scandinavian Home said...

I know what you mean - the way they've been hung is like art in itself!

My Scandinavian Home said...

I think it's the touch of cognac that makes the sitting room - a little bit of warmth and it all comes together!

Does anybody know where the pot holders that look like a paper bag or even leather are from? I think there is one in this bedroom photo with the cactus.
