The striking monochrome home of a Swedish photographer

It's the weeeekend. woohoo! As you know I love to go for a striking home tour to celebrate.  This monochrome home, which I think totally fits the bill,  is in stark contrast to the colourful spaces I showed in yesterday's post. You won't be surprised to hear that this beautiful black and white home is owned by a creative duo: talented Swedish photographer Magdalena Björnsdotter and her husband Eric who's passionately into music. The country home was built as a farmhouse in the 1920's and has been carefully restored into a modern graphical home.  I've featured over 100  black and white homes here over the years and love how each and every one is unique. And this one is no exception. I love how they've draped fabrics over furniture,  the cool artwork throughout and interestingly displayed photography. What do you love about this home?

Is this your kind of space? Are you more a black and white or a pops of colour interior person?

A couple of items I know and love: White Tolix chairs, Women: Annie Leibovitz coffee table book, Svenskt tenn elephant cushion and textile on the piano seat. Magnetic herb tins and seat cushions on bench by Granit.

More beautiful interiors shot by Magdalena include Ylva Skarp's Christmassy home and  a rustic farmhouse in Skåne.  Oh so fabulous!

I hope you have a fantastic weekend! 


  1. I fell in love with all those photos and pictures <3

  2. Love this home. It's pretty much exactly how I've been trying to get my flat to look for ages, but I've discovered that it's a LOT harder than these very talented people make it appear, especially if you have a five year old and a pet dog! I especially love the bedroom - who'd have thought black and white could look so cosy! Gorgeous.


  3. love your blog but enough already with the black and white!!!

  4. Love that bottom image, simple to replicate too! Enjoy your weekend xx

  5. I love the black and the white; personally I'm more of a color girl for my own home, but design looks great! My favorite part I suppose is how they displayed their family photos in the first picture; great focal point! Being from the U.S. I'm noticing that the use of the color white is a big thing in Scandinavia but it looks great; Love your style:) Kris / VPI

  6. Lovely apartment. I like the monochrome design and what stark contrast the brown bottles and bowl create in the simple color palette. The living room makes a lot of impact with the black and white photography.

  7. I am such a black-and-white-addict...the photos are wonderful and so is this home.
