Traditional meets new Nordic in a beautiful Swedish home

Hey there! I hope you've got some fun (and relaxing) things lined up over the Easter holidays?! I couldn't resist sharing one final home tour before I head off for some down time myself! This apartment in Gothenburg, styled by Emma Fischer is a beautiful mix of vintage finds, new Nordic design pieces and interesting treasures against a backdrop of soothing light grey and green walls. It took me a while to realise the bedroom is actually part of the open-plan living space rather than a separate room in itself (studio apartment owners take note!) - and yet there is still a wonderful un-cluttered feel to the space. A truly calm oasis and a beautiful home in the heart of the city. Enjoy!

What a lovely home, don't you think?

The bedroom area reminds me a little of how my grandmother's bedroom used to look - the lace on the curtains, the chest-of-drawers - what a wonderful reminder of times gone by!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look: bedroom: white linen bedding, Aröd desk lamp (IKEA). Dining area: Menu Afteroom dining chairs, try The Poster Club for wonderful prints like these. This and this grey marble tray are similar, pick up a white ceramic bust here. Kitchen - bistro chair.

For more lovely Swedish home tours this Easter you can always check out this archive (if this home comes up first just scroll passed).

Have a relaxing holiday!

  1. I love this - and Gothenburg is such a beautiful city! ��

  2. I can't go on believing/seeing that 'greige' is the predominant 'Scandinavian' interiors colour. With great respect, surely there are more colours extant in some of your wonderful historic buildings than exist on these lovely "my scandinavian home" pages. Or are celebratory interior colours traditionally feted in buildings other than on your beautiful site?

    1. It is not predominant, merely one of the 2017 trends among many others. If you look through the home tours on here you'll see a variety of colours including dark blue, green, grey, white, wallpapers with botanical prints etc. Hope you enjoy looking through the archives!

  3. Love, love, love the drape of the bed cover and the ecelectic mix of black and white photos!! The mix of soft and strait lines create a lovely texture in the room!!

  4. Hi, Great blog! I was wondering whether it would be of interest to share our antler chandeliers in your blog?
