my scandinavian home: A beautiful and practical Swedish home

A beautiful and practical Swedish home

Wednesday, 14 September 2016

Hello there. Happy mid-week! Today I'm taking inspiration from this lovely Swedish apartment. I love how the space is both beautifully furnished (a perfect blend of old and new but also highly functional, with plenty of storage, and everything you need at hand. I'm particularly loving the touches of midnight blue (velvet sofa, linen bedding), brass fittings and calm green wall in the kitchen. Oh and it's cosy too!

Oh and it's for sale too - wonder if it comes with everything inside, wouldn't that be good?!

A few items that caught my eye: this is a great source for mid-century dining chairs. House of Rym blanket,  Lee Broom crystal bulb and pendant light, midnight blue stonewashed linen bedding (love this!), this brass bed is similar.

Notice the books turned inwards? Always a fun talking point. I have some shelves in my bedroom (which I'll be featuring later this week) and all the book jackets have been bleached from sunlight, which is so upsetting! So I do actually see the value in it these days. I'd love to hear your thoughts though!

On a separate note - here's a little mid week link love for you:

Evening light - possibly the most beautiful set of pictures I've ever seen. 

A romantic corner from the bedroom of Mokkasin (love the dress and bag).

How to do open-plan.

This bouquet is beautiful, don't you think?!

An Autumn must have.

Have a lovely day!

PS I spoke at a 'social media influencer workshop' yesterday alongside instagrammer Marion Payr (AKA @ladyvenom)- if you love travel, you must check out her gallery, it's beautiful!

  2. Such a gorgeous home. I love the soft blue-green on the walls, and the hints of indigo in the furniture and accessories.

  3. Congratulations!!!! You make it))) I just receive the email with the shortlist of Amara blog award. i'm so happy for you! You deserve it.

    1. Thank you Clara - so lovely of you! Making the shortlist has made my day!

  4. Love the bookcase with all the books turned backwards!

  5. Not sure having to walk through the seatingarea to the diningroom (from the kitchen) counts as being practical.

  6. Perfection is the only word I could come up with.....
