A Swedish home with striking contrasts

Heeeeejsan! A certain someone in our house is turning 9 tomorrow and we take birthday's very seriously, after all you only turn 9 once right?!  In between preparations for the breakfast in bed, giant decorations and the birthday tea, I thought I'd take a moment in my office where it's lugn och ro (peaceful!) and share this wonderful Gothenburg apartment with you. What struck me the most about this elegant space dating back to the 1890s is the contrast - I absolutely love the dark wood floors against the fresh white walls and the fabulous chequer floor in the hallway.  One truly inspiring space indeed, don't you agree?!










This magnificent flat is for sale through Bjurfors. Photography: Alen Cordic. Styling: Intro Inred.

Wow! It's so striking!  I love all the textures too - leather, canvas, wood, glass, plants etc. They add a really cosy touch.

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

Get the look:  sitting room -
Stockholm chair from IKEA (I've just bought this my own home - it's beautiful!), source a vintage plan chest here Safari chair in canvas, black sheepskin throw. Bedroom - Karin armchair by Bruno Mathsson for DUX® 1969. Kitchen - pick up a black dining table here, I love these edison-style string lights.

Does anyone know the name of the brass ceiling light in the kitchen (I'm sure a few of you are wondering too?!)? If so, it would be wonderful if you can let us out of our misery in the comment section below!

Looking for a little more inspiration? Other beautiful homes designed with contrast include this amazing French home (probably one of my favourite kitchen / dining spaces ever!), a dark and white Swedish home, and a dramatic Swedish space with dark walls. Ohhhh, so lovely. Having lightened up my entire home - these spaces actually make me want to go for dark floors all over again (don't whatever you do, tell the man....!).

Have a lovely day!
