Friday Feels: Tour Mary's Charming and Relaxed Family Home

Sometimes I look through interior magazines and think 'this is wonderful, but there's no way I could ever achieve this' - do you sometimes feel like that too? I think that's why, over here on My Scandinavian Home, I always try to share homes which will inspire as many as possible. Cue: Mary's charming home! Mary lives in an apartment in Halle, Germany with her husband, two sons and two cats.  During the day Mary works as a social worker, helping children with autism (a job she loves) and in her spare time she's passionate about creating a beautiful, relaxed home for her and her family. The living space combines a blend of pieces from ikea, vintage finds, new nordic design and handmade items while books, art and plants contribute to the wonderful lived-in vibe. 

""I love to surround myself with Scandinavian design and handmade things. Right now, I like beige tones in combination with white, black and wood. I am also passionate about collecting vases and love flower arranging" - Mary. 

'On the sofa' Art from Fine Little Day

Fabulous spotty vase by Gothenburg based Elin Frodig.

Not only did I LOVE this tour (feeling all the Friday feels!), I was also excited to discover works by Swedish artists Elin Frodig and Kristina Haataja! - true inspiration for the weekend!

Did you find this home inspiring too? Is there anything that stood out to you in particular? 

In case you're in the mood for other homes with a bohemian touch, here are a few of my faves:

Right guys. That's it from me this week. This girl is checking out for the weekend! Woohooooo! 

I hope you've got some fabulous plans lined up!

See you Monday friends!

    1. Happy you love these darker tones too - there’s a load of stuff to love about this space, right?!

  2. Just shows you that you don't need expensive furniture to make an amazing looking home. It helps that the bones of this apartment are so stunning, but I think it would have been equally lovely with different floors or without some of the other details.

    1. I think the space itself has a lion't share on the apartment's overall appeal. Import the same furnishings and decorative objects to a place with the same square footage but with ceilings only 8ft high and much smaller windows and you will see the difference right away.

    2. You’ve got me squinting at the pictures trying to visualize each room without the high ceilings and wood floor now! Tricky one - but I do love her Pared back style 🤗

  3. who makes the cabinet in the last photo?

  4. Does anyone know who makes the large livingroom pendant light

  5. The cabinet is from Ikea, the Stockholm 2017 collection. The living room pendant - try googling a brand called Umage, I have the same looking lamp from them and it's very reasonably priced.
