A cool Swedish home with inspiring touches

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet. Here in the Gothenburg archipelagos we're keeping cool with dips in the sea. But when the heat really takes it's toll (I see in New York it's going to be up to a scorching 47?!) - it's perhaps time to retire into the cool indoors. Personally, I'd choose to take homage in this Swedish space - simply because you're never far from nature (oh OK then, and because it's beautiful!). It's full of inspiring ideas too. I'm taking note of the sofa in the bedroom (there's something a little lyx (as they say in Swedish) about having one of these in a boudoir don't you think?), the wall of shoes (yes!) and a bold geometric rug in the entrance. Let's take a tour....

Is there anything that catches your eye?

I absolutely love the J39 chairs by Børge Mogensens- Danish friend Karen-Maj Kornum tells me they're simply referred to as the 'Folkstol' (or the 'people's chair') in Denmark.

Other items I know and love: dining area - bamboo pendant lampshade (how pretty is this one too?), Eames chairs. office - jute rug (love this). bedroom - stonewashed bed linen, Vee Speers prints found here and here.

Jonas Ingerstedt is one of my favourite swedish interior photographers. I've featured so many of the homes he's captured on here before (with kind permission) - including the home of a Swedish fashion designer and a home that sings (if you love colour you'll love this home!). And of course Jonas' own home is nothing short of fabulous too!

And a little weekend link love I thought you may enjoy.....

Why stop at sofa's in the bedroom? This home has a credenza in the bathroom.

A modern apartment in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen.

Making an entrance, Victoria's round-up.

Decorating secrets from an IKEA stylist.

The Broste spring summer inspiration images look loooovely and fresh.

Chocolate for breakfast - that's a yes from me!

I can't tell you how many compliments I've had on my new glass bottle.

Speaking of which - the winner of the Nordal pure linen tablecloth and napkins (seen in action here) has now been announced on instagram here! Drum roll.....

On that note, I'm off to leave you to have a fabulous weekend! I hope the sun is shining where you are too.


  1. I would like to have a similar arrangement for all of my pairs of shoes, very chic and practical! :-)

  2. This place is absolutely calming...

  3. I absolutely love the wall of books framing the window- gives a real wow factor.... And the wall of shoes.... Heaven!
