A Swedish apartment in pretty white, blue and cognac

Hello Friday! Yay! Here's a colour scheme I haven't seen in a while; (sky?) blue, white and cognac. It's such a pretty combination it's enough to make me want to re-think the colours I've chosen for my own home! I also love the shabby chic double doors, a nice break away from the otherwise pristine white Swedish apartment.

What do you think of this colour combination? (And what would you call the blue which runs throughout?).

So. It's nearly the weekend WOOHOO! Any plans? Apart from spending time with my family, I'm really hoping to get my hands on a Hay mirror and do a little bit of hall styling. They're quite tricky to get hold of in Sweden as there's such a long waiting list. Wish me luck!

Before I head for the weekend here are a few links for the weekend:

Last night there was a repeat of The Scandinavian House on Grand Designs. Architect Kathrine designed and built the home around her love of 50's Scandinavian furniture. I was mesmerised! See pictures of the home here and a short film about the architecture here.

For those of you who plan to sleep all's some bedroom inspiration:

And finally, the latest edition of Lonny Mag is out- curl up, enjoy that morning coffee and read it here.

Have a wonderful weekend all!

  7. Looove the old doors!.... and all the rest, sure!

  8. it! The table is great...who can tell me the designer?

  9. Indanthrone Blue. (the darker blue)

  10. Those doors make the whole apartment if you ask me. I would never be brave enough to try that but it looks great. And it was one of those gorgeous white tiled oven/chimney things, I love them. x

  11. Beautiful light home, and I love the blue details! Have a lovely weekend. /Elina

  12. these colors are so pretty. it has such a clean feeling but the blue also makes it feel relaxed. i don't know what i would call that blue - something between sky and electric, it's very pretty. but those doors! wow, they are so lovely!

  13. En veeldig fin kombinasjon syns jeg:)
    Prøver meg litt på den her hjemme nå mot våren,
    herlig farge mot varmere tider!

    Hilsener fra Maren, med ønsker om en herlig helg til deg også!

  14. Love this space! I would call the blue a turquoise - and those shabby doors are fabulous - have a great weekend!! ;-)

  15. i love the blue, and the dark cognac color that grounds it all. i think that darker blue might be close to cobalt?

  16. I loved this episode of Grand Designs too....just divine. Have a good weekend :)

  17. Beautiful apartment! I think I'll call that blue some shade of turquoise. And turquoise + white is one combination I totally love!
    Happy weekend!

  18. What a beautiful blue! The image of the couch with the blue pillows is just gorgeous.

  19. So beautiful and bright! Looks fantastic!

  20. oh, wow! just elegant and modern at the same time.

  21. I just loved the way you have presented the whole blue and white combination.
