The clean, calm Swedish home

Well hello there! I hope you had a great long weekend? (if it was one where were you were of course, otherwise short is good too....!) - we're busy tidying up here from a hectic, yet really fun couple of days with family and friends who were over to help me celebrate the release of my book (I've learned it's so important to celebrate little things in life, otherwise it's easy to just keep going without stopping to enjoy the moment, don't you think?). Since I'm still dusting down the cobwebs this morning (mostly from my own head!!) - I thought it would be apt to share this beautiful Swedish home. The designer has kept to a combination of white, cream and black throughout for an incredibly clean, calm home - and the perfect place to relax and drink in the natural daylight. Oh how I'd love to be padding about here today, how about you? There's even a cup of tea waiting for u

Oj oj oj - as they say in Sweden! What a lovely home!

Note to self - keep it simple.

I love the linen bedding in particular - (this duvet cover and pillow case are similar - and I love this coverlet too!).

How about you?

Get the look: sitting room - Karlstad sofa from ikea, Karin chair - DUX, PJ wall light, Ant chair, kitchen / dining area: Gubi semi pendant light, 'The People's Chair' . Hall - black sheepskin throw. Bedroom - reading lights.

If you're loving this white look, you'll definitely want to settle in for the morning and explore this archive....

Oh and it's an exciting week here on MSH. Look out for the give-away in a few days time in collaboration with Danish brand Nordal. I can't reveal the prize yet - but it'll be one of the items seen in this corner of my home.... oh the suspense!

Have a great day!


  1. Beautiful post. That chair in the first photo, with the chrome frame! Do you know anything about it?

    1. Hi Leigh, I love that chair too but sadly I'm not sure what it is - it looks fairly retro / vintage to me? I hope someone else on here can help!

  2. The chair is called 'Karin' by Bruno Mathsson :-)

    1. Thanks Ullis! Love that chair.... maybe something for my sitting room? I'm guessing Lauritz is the best bet?

    2. Karin is still in production with DUX
      (and the wall light over the sofa in the first image is the PJ light from ร–rsjรถ ๐Ÿ˜‰)

    3. So helpful, thanks Neil! I'll update the post with these links.

    4. Welcome! I enjoy your blog and check in all the time ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I know that for a scandinavian home this kind of light wooden floor is nothing extraordinary, but I would love to do it in our home and I'm wondering what kind of wood it is and how it has been treated so that it stays light. Maybe someone can help me and tell me where I can find it/how to do it, especially because I'm living in France and no one understands what I'm looking for ;-)
