My home captured by Karin: dressing room

As promised, today I'm introducing the first in a mini weekly series called 'my home captured by Karin'. While we were away recently my photographer friend Karin Björklund (who also took my profile picture) spent the day in our home and took lots of lovely pictures. It's fascinating to see how someone else sees your home. I call this room 'my dressing room' since this is where I have my dressing table, keep all my clothes and like to swan about, wafting perfume, reading magazines and generally acting like the movie star I am not! But the rest of my family call it the guest room or TV room....:)

As a guest room it looks like this (it used to be our bedroom). One day the floor will be white.....

Eeek, what do you think? Do you have a versatile room like this in your home?

Here's a bit of a guide on where things are from: wallpaper - Designers Guild, Around Coffee Table - Muuto,  Finnish hemp textile cushion - Saaana ja Olli, mirror - Graham & Green, perfume and apothecary bottles - vintage, tribal gold necklace -Whistles.

PS Merci Beaucoup to Clémence who listed my scandinavian home in your top 5 interior design blogs on Tuesday in Paulette Magazine, such an honour!


  1. So lovely, Nina! We have a room in our apartment that doubles as my office, a snug and a spare room - it's one of my favourite spaces! :)

  2. Great photos of a lovely room. It looks like a lovely room to retreat to. Definitely continue to insist it is your dressing room!

  3. An amazing room! My room looks suddenly so boring now...

  4. so excited to see photos of your house. this is such a lovely way to start. really love the contrast of the black and white.

  5. So fun to see your house. I love the mix of whites, grays and black with the light wood. That is what I hope on achieving in my place someday.

  6. I just love it, and Congratulations- it comes as no surprise to me:)

  7. Hi Niki, excellent room, I love all things there, I wrote when you used this room as a bedroom that wallpaper is beautiful.I like MUUTO and this table is....WOW, say hello to your friend Karin, the photos are brilliant :)

  8. A beautiful room, I just wish I had a room to spare! I don't have a guestroom (spare room) but if I did I would love it to be as pretty as this :)

  9. Beautiful room and great pictures by lovley Karin who is alsona friend of mine:).

    I have followed your blog a long time without saying "hi". I think your blog is great.

    Have a nice evening,

    1. What a coincidence! Lovely to meet you and thank you for taking the time to say hi! Our friend Karin is indeed talented! :)

  10. Karin did a great job and you have a fab versitile room!! x

  11. If I had the space I would love to have a versatile room. But we just had a little workspace/guest room, that has become our baby's room for our son ;-)
    Your room is very nice. I like the guest room. The idea that friends can be (almost)on their own. Our friends now sleep in our living room, which is not so great!

  12. Hello - the woven stools - are the from IKEA?
    They really make the space, to me.

    Thanks! j

    1. Yes they are Jen, I must say they are one of the most useful things I have bought, I'm constantly moving them around the house! X

  13. Niki what a post. I love the pictures and the style. Karin what a great work!!!
    Good luck in Berlin. And again, amazing work both of you.

    A lot of hugs,
