Delightful dark tones in a Stockholm space

Hello Monday! How quickly you came around? But I was already prepared, oh how I was prepared. I'd already ear-marked this fab Stockholm apartment to share with you. The space features everything hot in the world of Scandinavian interiors right now. The love'em or loath'em dark walls in greys and blues (which camp are you?) - in some places two-toned. Dark earthy accessories in indigo, plum, and grey, and a touch of metallic. And perhaps the hottest chair right now - the fabulous Beetle lounge chair! Let's not forget the Flos 265 and IC pendant light and stone-washed bed linen too. I think it'd be rude not to have a nosey around, how about you?!


I think my favourite part of this home is the guest bedroom in fact. It's so simple, yet so significant (and achievable). You?

Get the look: sitting room - rug, metallic cube table, Äng vase, Beetle lounge chair, Flos Flos 265. Dining - wishbone chairs, Flos IC pendant light. Master bedroom - grey washed linen bedding, moss blanket. Guest bedroom - indigo / denim linen, cork stool.

Try Farrow & Ball paint for similar dark colours

See a full tour of this home over at Bosthlm (where it's currently for sale - yup!).

A little link love from around the web:

A room with a view.

Mini refigerator with attitude.

Take a peek inside Tyra Bank's dressing room (the shoes!).

Love this lighting for a narrow passageway / garden.

Check out the vintage beni ourain and kilim rugs by my new sponsor Maroc Tribal - *In love*!

Have a wonderful start to the week!

PS May your monday be less like this and more like this


  1. I like the look, but it would be very dark most of the year. Living in Toronto, we don't have sunny winters and I need some brighter colours to help to cope with it. I would expect that Stockholm might be similar.

    1. Hi Susan,
      I am in K-W and that's what I always say. I am in fact surprised how come they can pull off the look in Sweden. But I also find than many of the places featured here on MSH have tall ceilings and huge windows, so that definitely helps.

  2. I love how moody the rooms look in the pictures. I'm sure when lamps are on, the lighting will be adequate.

  3. This is one of my absolute faves Niki!! Yes, I love the all white look, but I love these moody hues just as much. But it might be because it is winter here at the moment... :) I even reposted a pic of the lounge area on my instagram account the other day, without realising you had put this tour up!!! thanks for the extra peek around this gorgeous apartment
