A Soothing White and Caramel Swedish home

So the 'beast from the east' has arrived. How are you coping European friends (I hear there's even snow in Rome!)? Keeping toasty? In Sweden it's been snowing all night and all day and it's minus 9 (here in the south!). Crazy! Still, I do love a proper winter, how about you? All this snow has meant I've been completely distracted (my Swedish friends on the other hand, are completely unfazed by it all - proof that you can take a girl out of London, but you can't take London out of the girl!') and left hardly anytime for today's post (squeezed in between an afternoon coffee and collecting the girls with their toboggans in 30 minutes time!). But this home tour is a goody and totally worth stopping by for nevertheless, especially if you love a calm, white, minimalist home with warm caramel accents! It's been styled for sale viewings, hence the more minimalist look and feel, but I think there's plenty to feel inspired by all the same. Enjoy!

Pick up similar abstract artwork here. I'm so curious about the armchairs - if you have any idea where they're from it would be wonderful if you can let me know in the comment section below and I'll update the post. 

The Gubi semi-pendant is a favourite of mine, it comes in a load of colours but the white option keeps it classic.

If we think it's cold in Europe right now, we'd better be thankful we weren't around for Europe's mini ice age between 1500 and 1800! There'd have been no choca mocha lotta lattes to warm our cockles. But there was an invention in the 18th century which we'd have been grateful for - the Swedish 'kakelugn' (seen above). Considered a heat efficient way to warm a home at the time - many masonry ovens are not in working order today but look super pretty all the same!

These warm brown linen duvet cover and pillow cases are similar. And I'm a big fan of the Cord lamp by Design House Stockholm!

Oh so lovely. The apartment has such a soothing feel to it, don't you think? I love the space-saving fold-away chair in the hall  - so handy for tight spots. The closest I've found is by Henrybuilt - any tips where this one's from?

Is there anything you love about this home?

Have a lovely day and stay warm friends! 


  1. Love this space especially the metal & leather chairs- custom? Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes, they could well be custom, good point! This would also explain why I haven't seen them before.

  2. Lovely and calm home. But I need colours right now. :) In the south of Slovenia we have almost 1 meter of snow and yesterday was -23! Today is much better, only -11. :)

  3. 1 meter? minus 23?!! Wow, and I thought we had it bad here. Stay toasty Roxanna and I'll do my best to send some colour your way as soon as possible!

  4. Love these places, and especially this one, but always wonder, where is the tv?

    1. These space has been styled for sale so they haven't included one (that I can see) and quite ooften photographers will take views away from the TV since they're not always pretty to look at. However, you've definitely inspired a post about styling with TV's - I'll work on that!

  5. Hi Niki! The chairs are Aluminium designed by Mats Theselius for Källemo.

    1. Ah, nice Monica, thank you! Never seen them before! Now I can update the post. Hope you're keeping warm up there in Stockholm!

  6. Love this lovely home. I particularly love that last picture. It might seem odd, but for some reason that triangle of concrete floor - under the shelf - with paint or who knows what on it makes the space seem so real and lived in.

  7. Touches of brown definetely warm up white interiors which sometimes do tend to look cold
