Rocking the 'greige' in a Swedish apartment

Wake-up it's a beautiful morning.... at least it feels like it inside this Swedish apartment.  Decorated from head to toe in this season's interior colour: 'greige' and furnished with items in soft white and light wood, this bright Gothenburg home looks way bigger than its 42 square metres (452 square foot) suggests. Could you imagine returning to this wonderful, calm oasis each day?

Just lovely, don't you think?

Get the look from this Gothenburg space: sitting room - söderhamn sofa, Cos X Hay pion lamp (love this!), Hay tray table. office - Series-7 chair (also seen in dining area). bedroom: white linen duvet cover and grey linen pillow.

I really like the narrow bench in the hallway giving just enough space to sit down and pull on your boots - perfect! Is there anything that stands out to you?

I'm curious.... what do you think about the 'greige' trend? This beautiful Swedish space might help you make up your mind. If it's a thumbs up, you might find this guide to greige helpful. Tempted?

Have a lovely day!

PS I'll be back later to announce the winner of the Palm Print give-away (watch this space). And tomorrow, it's time for the My Scandinavian Home Easter edit - get that craft kit ready - these ideas are more simple and beautiful than ever - eeeee


  1. What do I think about greige? My goal is to repaint my whole flat in Ballet White from Benjamin Moore. It's exactly the colour I needed. Though I thought at first it was too dark (remember, low light, main floor, next house really close...)
    Greige is the new neutral, far from the 80's drab.
    BTW, we had snow last week (seriously) but it was 20°C yesterday and everything is melting ☀

    1. By any chance, do you have the colour number/name of this wall paint? And the bench is from IKEA ��

    2. Ballet white! Good call.

    3. Thanks. Did you try it? And if so which finish? My walls are 10' high and at 75$ a gal, I want to make sure it's the right pick.

  2. I think the light greige shown here is the prettiest I've seen. The darker, more taupe-ish versions are not me.

  3. Loved it before it was a trend :) (If done without the use of chemicals)
