A lovely Swedish kitchen with blue accent

There's a lot of colour blocking going on in the home decor world right now - from dark green and deep blue accent walls to entire spaces painted in charcoal. But what if we're not quite ready to take the plunge? Or perhaps it doesn't work for the space you have? My home for example, was fairly dark when we bought it, so we've done everything we can to brighten it up. The kitchen in this lovely Stockholm apartment might just hold the answer. Everything has been kept fresh white (with subtle touches of black) save for a section of shelving in a beautiful, vibrant blue - and what a difference it makes to the entire room?! The rest of the apartment, which dates back to 1913, is pretty nice too! Let's take a peek...

This apartment is for sale through Fastighetsmäklarna

I do love the kitchen, it reminds me a little of this lovely one

Could you imagine using colour in this way?

Get the look: kitchen: ant chairs, string shelves, pick up a vintage industrial pendant here, white linen table cloth. sitting room - Aröd lamp from IKEA, source a credenza like this here. bedroom - sinnerlig lamp from IKEA, grey linen bedding.

To me, blue and white will always be synonymous with Swedish homes. Some of my faovurites include: a Swedish home with touches of cornflower blue,  a striking Stockholm space in deep blue and the wonderful home of a food blogger.

Have a lovely day!

  1. This apartment does look like from 1913 but I do like the little blue wall in the kitchen. To be honest my kitchen is also white with cabinets similar as those (hard to clean) but we have instead a orange wall in between for a bit of colour. I am heading now to your Instagram for the contest :)

  2. Love this apartment! The touch of blue in the kitchen really makes a difference....

  3. the bookshelves in the bedroom are literally a dream come true for me. and the blue in the kitchen. so inspiring. blue is my favorite color. :)

  4. Love the tone of copper in all white. Such lovely images. Aesthetically pleasing. It reminds me of the happy homes blog. They write about home improvements and home decor. They have some really helpful tips and tricks. Give it a go if you're looking for some.
