A crisp black and white Swedish home

It's weird. Some weeks there are oodles of beautiful interiors to choose from and others I find myself scratching around. Fortunately this week, there are so many beautiful spaces floating around on Pinterest, Instagram and other favourite sites, I'm not sure which to blog about first! In the end I plumped for this Stockholm apartment today as it's a great reflection of the snow and silhouettes outside my window. It's been decorated throughout in black and white and crammed with inspiringly simple ideas. I especially love the piles of magazines used as a bedside table, the different lighting and the lovely children's room. Let's take a tour....

I'll always love the crispness and the clean lines of a monochrome home. How about you?

Get the look:  Bedroom - try this beautiful vintage scissor light (not sure why I'm sharing this as I'd love this in my own home! -  for similar try here), concrete plant pot, jar with lid. Sitting room - BESTÅ storage cabinets. Kitchen - G print, Eames chair, Marimekko bowls. Children's bedroom - wigwam / teepee, kili baby cot.

You can see more pics of this space over at Fantastic Frank.

Other links I love today -

A delicate moodboard.

On the menu tonight (they had me at the avocado sauce). And perhaps a Swedish semla layer cake for pudding?! YUM!

It seems 'mint' is the 2016 alternative to navy blue in the world of sofas. Loving this one (did you see the one I linked to yesterday too?). Although I do love this contrast - beautiful!

Now that I'm back home again the first thing I'm going to do is fill my home with plants and fresh flowers. And this fab studio has encouraged me to do the same in my work space! You in?!

Happy International Women's Day.

See you tomorrow! 


  1. Hi Niki, great post, I love the minimalism in this this design. It reminds me of another Scandinavian style post I saw recently I'll have to try and find it again to share. Are the magazine tables stuck together somehow or just piles of loosely stacked mags?

    1. Hi Dan, no they'll just be stacks of loose magazines. I have done the same in some parts of my home and when they're backed up against the wall they're amazingly stable. /Niki

  2. Such a good light shining through the whole apartment. It was very big factor for me when I decorated my apartment, I do however like to have some colouring details to get some warmth and balance. Inspirational, thank you! :)

  3. I agree, I love the simplicity of monochromatic schemes! Thanks for sharing! Hope you had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka!

  4. Just wonderful. I would move there right away if I got the chance. My own home is decorated with black and white as well, but I just don't seem to have that eye to create that kind of interior...

  5. Hi Niki, loved this home, do you happen to know of any good websites to purchase art similar to these on the sidetable? The art in this place is incredible.
    Thanks for another great post, as usual!

  6. I think it is always a shame for children's rooms to have so little colour. Colour is soul food for us all. The styling is superb here, but perhaps bedroom black and white gets in the way of a child's delight in the colours of his/her immediate world?
