A Swedish Home With a Subtle Nod to the 1990's Trend

The fashion world has been channeling the 1990's for a while now and it was only a matter of time before it reached the world of interiors. Reminiscent of my secondary school years - but hopefully an improved version (!) - we're starting to see electric blue, orange, fluorescent shades, turquoise and green accents as well as patterns with triangles, zigzag lightening bolts, diamonds, free form shapes that overlap, and art and sculptures inspired by comic books and pop art. And those of you who held onto your Louis Ghost Chairs are also in luck - perspex items with a sustainable twist are also expected to hit the scene! Spotted over on Trendenser - this Swedish apartment bears a very subtle nod to the 1990s - can we call it minimalist Scandinavian modern with a 90's flair? Either way I'm kind of loving the playfulness against the backdrop of calm - and of course those period features!

I did say it was subtle - but did you spot the connection too?!

I love the playful touches (I keep noticing more and more things each time I look through the pictures!). Is there anything that stood out to you?

So, wonderful people.... it's the weekend! WOOOP! Any fun plans?

I'm off to Hannover to hang out with my favourite blogger friends Decor8, Happy Interior Blog, Vosgesparis, Passion Shake, Monster Circus and Trend Stefan at Domotex, the leading trade fair for floor coverings, where we'll be discussing the latest trends on stage.

On Sunday I head straight to IMM Cologne - I've never been to Cologne so I'm super excited - tips welcome! I can't wait to see what's going on at the fair too (if you're in the area pop along on the public days - it sounds like it's going to be truly inspiring event, more info here!).

But first I have a photo shoot at home that involves a GIANT chocolate cake and champagne. No way the props are going to last to the end of the shoot.... but if they do I'm going to have one very happy husband when he gets back from work!

Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. I love the counter play between the details above the doorways in this beautiful old apartment and the modern artwork. Calm is then restored with big leaf plants high and low. Wonderful!

  2. that is a wonderful set of rooms. one can only ask what is the monthly rent. I have noticed a trend where headboards are not included in the design. When i was growing up, headboard was one of the first things you thought about in your bedroom design.

    I'm still stuck in that headboard mode. i love the freedom of no headboard - from my perspective it is so "avant garde" :)

    1. So interesting re headboards. In our bedroom we have a really low window behind the bed which meant we didn't have space for one, so instead we. went for special headboard cushions from Carpe Diem Beds - they're perfect for reading and Netflix series!

  3. I love this beautiful wooden table! Which design is it?

    1. I love it too - it's the classic 255 / 290 table (link under one of the images) :)

  4. I'm so jealous! Have fun and tell everyone I said hi!

  5. I love the artwork over the bed! And I like the design of that bookcase. It is all playful indeed! Nice! Enjoy yourself ;)

    1. I love the artwork too, I was trying to find out who it was by but no luck unfortunately.

  6. Wow, las molduras en los techos y esa mesa del comedor, 😀 TODO es genial
