A Considered Swedish Home In Soothing Neutrals

Hej Vänner! How was your weekend? Mine was going so well until I realised my beloved bike had been stolen - waaah! It really was one of my most prized possessions. I saved up to buy it years ago and my two little girls used to sit on the back to go to dagis (nursery). I've used it every single day rain or shine! Have you ever had anything precious to you stolen? I'm consoling myself in the only way I know how - by taking a look around a beautiful Scandinavian home! And I think it's working (momentarily!). Come and join me for a peek at the tranquil Swedish home of Amanda Axelsson. Amanda is a UX / Digital designer and self-confessed 'photoholic interior lover with a creative mind'. She's decorated her minimalist home with considered pieces and the slightest hint of black (for contrast) against a backdrop of wonderfully soothing shades. Enjoy the tour! 

The sofa looks as though it could be the IKEA Karstad 3 Seater sofa with a Brero linen natural loose fit cover*. The prints are from Wall of Art

How cool is that Pholc 150 wall lamp?! 

I've got my on this Double Bubble lamp* designed by Eero Aarnio, isn't it fab?! I also love the Balance candle-holder* - it looks great rested on a book or magazine. 

Muuto Ambit pendant, Hay soft edge chairs*

Wow! The entire home just feels so effortless! So lovely, don't you think?

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

Take a peek at other soothing Swedish homes in this archive (it's never too early in the week to put your feet up!). 

Right, I'm off to find my bike. Funnily enough my friend Genevieve had a really rare type of bike stolen here in Malmö and it actually turned up on a second-hand site a few days later, can you believe that?! I think Gen ended up buying hers back because she couldn't actually prove it was hers. Imagine?  

Have a fabulous start to the week friends - and remember to triple lock that bike of yours!

  1. The fab table lamp is Tuplakupla aka Double Bubble by the great finnish designer Eero Aarnio.

  2. Can you share what color paint you used on the walls?

  3. Sorry to hear about your lovely bike! Yes I've had stuff nicked that was irreplaceable. I've learnt to live with it and remind myself of all the things I do have. This home is definitely soothing! Amanda

    1. That's a good way of looking at it, thank you :).

  4. So sorry about your bike. I'll be praying you get it back. If you do put your name or some numbers where they cant be seen, for proof of identity.

    1. Thank you! Fortunately it had a bike ID number (which I have a record of) so if it does turn up I'll be able to claim it. Fingers crossed!
