A Charming & Relaxed Swedish Home In Blue And White

Hejsan! It's one of those weeks where I'm constantly on the back foot - anyone else experiencing that? I'd never leave you high and dry without some beautiful interior inspiration though - besides this lovely Swedish space has been the highlight of my day! The blue and white colour scheme and relaxed nature of the space caught my eye. There's also a load to love - including the mix and match furniture, books, plants and art  which give the place in Kungsladug√•rd, Gothenburg it's soul! I hope you feel as inspired as I do by this lovely home! 

It's so hard to find lovely old tables - but a close-up of this one reveals it's been handmade (possibly using IKEA legs and a door or other reclaimed item). So clever - and actually not that difficult to cobble together if you fancy doing something similar. 

The sitting room reminds me a little of the beautiful Varberg home of Kristin Lagerkvist 8(you can see a glimpse of her living room here). 

There are a few lovely things at play in the space above - including a wooden cabinet which has been painted in the same colour as the wall, Elfa shelves lined with books and other treasures and a simple grey sheepskin* draped over a mid-century chair - all of which make it feel personal and cosy!

So charming, don't you think?

Is there anything that stood out to you?

I'm still thinking about the Elfa book shelves (not just in the sitting room, but also in the hallway) - and wondering where I might be able to fit more shelving in my own home (so many books, such little time... and space!).

The blue and white theme has me thinking about the subtle coastal tones in this danish cottage, a striking blue and white Swedish home full of contrast and the details in this striking Danish house. Blue will always be one of my favourite shades - are you a fan too?

Right, better get on, so much to do! Eeeek!

  1. Wow, it looks absolutely wonderful!

  2. I love this home too! But, I can't help but notice that MCM chair draped in sheepskin looks so awkward and forlorn floating in space. I notice this type of placement alot recently. It seems to violate Chris Alexanders' Pattern Language of design. I would never choose to sit in that chair, as it feels exposed, vulnerable and isolated.
    I guess I am all about the cozy this November, maybe on a scorching hot, sticky day that chair would seem inviting (without the sheepskin!)

    1. I think the chair looks 'floating' in one photo only, in another one it actually does not seem so far off the coffee table. My guess is, if the chair would be closer to the sofa, it would block the walkway from the kitchen. I don't see anything wrong with this.

      It would be too dark for me but don't have a problem liking dark paint in someone else's apartment. I love the pendant light above the kitchen table but I really dislike the black lights suspended over the kitchen counter. What bothers me are the cords looping out, they look too "messy" to me. I would prefer the lights installed on the wall as opposed to the ceiling.

  3. You had me at...the book shelf. Love to view homes where books abound!

  4. So lovely, all of it. The dark blue walls with the light floors makes me happy.
