A dramatic Stockholm space in dark colours

Just when we thought house sale styling in Sweden had reached it's creative limits, along comes a new kid on the block - in the form of Stockholm based 1 Street, and the bar is raised yet another notch! We're talking steaming bowls of soup with freshly baked bread, seasonal vegetables and even an obedient (and extremely cute) doggy. If these aren't enough to persuade you however, this elegant Stockholm space also features high ceilings, dramatic dark walls, vintage and antique pieces, the odd designer item and quirky art. Be still my beating heart! 

1 street,
Wow! I understand dark interiors aren't for everyone, and I'm not sure I'd have all these dark walls in my own home but I can certainly appreciate them from afar - beautiful. What's your take?

Get the look: try the farrow & ball dark range for similar paint colours. Classic Wegner wishbone chairs, source a vintage chopping boards here, Marshall speaker (I've got this in my home and love it!). Kilim cushions, vintage industrial table lamps, charcoal linen bedding.

More interiors with a dark expression include this Swedish home, a sophisticated space in shades of green and grey, and this fabulous French home.

Love the wallpaper in this children's room also seen here. It's the fab Forêt noire wallpaper designed by Nathalie Lété. 

It's raining in Malmö today - not snowing, raining. Humph! Time for some comfort food. I'm thinking creamy garlic herb mushroom spaghetti, or date night pasta with mushrooms and goats cheese.....yum!

Right, London bound to meet my wonderful publisher....exciting!

Have a lovely day! 


  1. Dark interiors looks beautiful, but I would never choose it for my apartment. For me light is essential but on the other hand I know some people who keep their curtains closed all time.. it is only matter of taste, really...)

    1. I'm with you on that. I used to have one black wall in the bedroom and it zapped so much light. I guess the key is lots and lots of lighting to compensate. It looked beautiful though!

  2. Uhh, love this! Perfect mix and I'm a big fan of those dark walls! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. This space really does have a lovely blend of styles doesn't it?

  3. Once again, I'm in love with what you've shared! I'm big on dark walls so this is right up my alley. But what I love most of all is the coziness of the kitchen. It feels so lived in and lovely and practical and functional. I'm so tired of our great big huge kitchens in the U.S. They all look alike and have very little personality. (Ok, I'm exaggerating when I say "all" but truly, the design you see most often here is big, white and all the same). Thanks for transporting me to another place this morning!

    1. So happy you're feeling inspired. I love the kitchen in this space too.

  4. I love dark walls, but at the same time I'm addicted to light and airy spaces. The perfect solution is dark walls in the hallway, but keep the living room white. I love the contrast looking from one room to the other.

  5. The link to 1 Street isn't working and I cant find them on google :-(

  6. I'm obsessed with the charcoal blue wall!
