Monday's home: shades of grey

Hello and happy Monday to you! I'm finally back in Sweden and despite the jet lag (although it's actually quite useful to be up at 4.30am!) it's lovely to be home. It's cold, grey and gloomy compared to Thailand and Singapore but sometimes that can be beautiful too. Take this apartment for example. Decorated in black, white and grey it's the oh so cool apartment of Josefin Hååg of 20 kvadrat photographed recently for Residence Magazine.

I am loving that it has the real Lotta Agaton stamp (check out another styling project by Lotta here and her own home). Lotta is my absolute favourite stylist of the moment, she has such a unique personal style. She is also a firm believer that grey will be the go-to colour for interiors in 2014 like in the home featured here.

What do you love about this home?

Oh and I have some exciting news: the book featuring my house:  Design Bloggers at Home by Ellie Tennant launches in March. I can't wait to see a copy! I only hope there were no socks lurking under the sofa or something...!

And the second exciting thing is I'm holding a fab give-away here tomorrow so be sure to pop back for your chance to win.

Have a lovely Monday!


  1. Singapore and Thailand? Officially jealous! I have had a few people sneer at me when I have told them that grey is my favourite colour. So it's no surprise that I adore (and will pin the daylights) out of this home. What a great day to end my Monday.

  2. what a lovely flat!! i´m so in love with grey aswell..

  3. I love how the frames look

  4. So happy to see gray get all the attention it deserves! I painted my bedroom a dark gray a few years ago and people asked if we thought it was too depressing. No way! I'd love to see it make a full takeover in 2014 :) xo

  5. flotte bilder og lekker "styling".
    et slikt pia W teppe har jeg, og det blir jeg aldri lei
    flytter det rundt i huse tog nyter det :)

    tenkte å åtvare deg om kravet jeg har fått etter å ha vist slike boligreportasje-bilder.
    jeg lenket også i "god tro" og trodde det var nok.

  6. Again with the subway tiles! (like in yesterday's bathroom blog) Not sure I love them as much in the kitchen though. Grey definitely. Warm and luxurious and forgiving. Perfect.

  7. ...I have my walls painted Swedish White (Dulux) it has a touch of grey in it to ward of the typical English Magnolia look.

  8. This is indeed one fabulous apartment!
    Congratulations for the feature in a book, so cool! :) x

  9. Hi! These photos are beautiful! Grey is so cool and I love to use it. It´s not boring at all... :)
