A calm and elegant Swedish home

Hello! We have a birthday in Da house! My daughter's turns 7 today! And as you might know already, we take birthdays very seriously (after all, everyone deserves a very special day - and you only turn 7 once, right?!). In between pancakes (with blueberries, raspberries and Swedish honey), present opening and bowling (guh! - the things we do to keep our little ones happy!) I found a window to share this very lovely Swedish apartment with you. It immediately struck me as calm, elegant and sophisticated - a great combination! The space has been styled for sale and the images de-saturated somewhat - but you can still pick up on the grey, green, brass and dusty pink hues and there's so much inspiration from the details too! Enjoy!














Photography - Alvhem, found via Coco Lapine Design with thanks! 

I love so many things about this home - the duck print (how fabulous is the kitchen in general by the way?!), the pendant over the table (any tips on where this is from?), little brass plant mister, the Platner coffee table and mantis table lamp on the desk (I've got the same one on mine!!) as well as the beautiful brass coat rack (again, tips welcome!). Oh, and if you're up for a similar round mirror check out our round-up from last week.

Is there anything that caught your eye?

Right, better get on with the birthday celebrations... have a great day!

PS - in case you missed it, I shared the final two short films from my greenhouse make over with Emily Henderson yesterday! Seeing the project on film makes me want to hunt for my very own greenhouse here in Sweden - are you tempted?!

  1. The pendant over the table could be the one from Belgian arty design duo Muller Van Severen. http://www.mullervanseveren.be/site/category/furniture/

    1. Thank you Natalie, I'll pass on the message. So well remembered re the baking - YES! hahaha! I'm still sulking about my string of baking disasters and haven't picked up a spatula since!!! And my husband is sooo good at cooking and baking - and quick too, so lucky! Although this time, the cake was indeed bought - she specifically requested a 'princess tårta' which is a traditional Swedish cake with sponge, marzipan, a mountain of whipped cream and covered in icing in a garish green - fortunately our local bakery happened to have just the one ;)

  6. I don't know the artist, but I believe the bird print in the kitchen is a loon. I see that there is a swan in the dining room in a similar style.

  9. Beautiful and serene home, and with my favorite dream chairs, the Wishbone! Some day, maybe... But the coat bar in the final photo is a clever, elegant design; no pokey impressions in the top of one's coat! Do you know where it's from? Thank you in advance, and happy belated to your daughter!
