A soothing Swedish space in shades of grey

It's so grey here in Southern Sweden today. A 'lights-on-all-day' kind of grey. So I'm doing my best to get that hygge vibe going. The candles are lit, the coffee's brewing and later I'm heading over to a friends house for 'fika' - just what the doctor ordered on a day like today, wouldn't you say? There's no point in hiding, so let's just embrace it? And actually when I see spaces like this Swedish home it's even possible to see the beauty in it too - in a calm, soothing sort of way. Other than the soft hues, there other factors at play in this apartment - like the use of space (the tiny bespoke work corner proves there's always room for a desk!) and I love, love, love the various forms of lighting and that Ghost sofa in grey. Let's take a tour....

.......just add candles! 

A little guide: Flos multi light pendant, Ant chairs, the clothes rail is by Anna Leena. The walls have been painted in 'fjäder' by Jotun. To achieve a similar floor colour I can recommend Strong White by Farrow & Ball (I've used it in my bedroom and absolutely love it).

Does anyone know who designed the three legged stool and lamps in the bedroom and kitchen? It would be wonderful to know a little more about these, don't you think?

And before I shoot off for that all important fika, here's a little mid week link love I thought you might like..

Many people shy away from visiting Scandinavia in the winter - one look at @joonaslinkola (awe-inspiring!) and the @visitsweden instagram feeds though and you might well change your mind!

A lovely plant arrangement for the home. 

Healthy lunch, not so healthy supper. It's all about balance right?! 

Thrilled to be included in Domino Magazine's 'best Scandinavian feeds to follow on Pinterest - I do love a little pinning now and again I have to admit! Loving the other tips too - you can never follow to many Scandinavian pinners right?

Have a lovely *calm* day!
