A Warm Swedish Family Home Full of Texture

While yesterday's home tour was all about a Swedish cottage that has been moved to Australia (sounds crazy I know, but it's not the first time I've heard this. Even so, I still marvel at the logistics. Does someone spot a house, fall in love with it, and think "Hmmm, I'm not sure about the surroundings, I'll move it?"). Today I thought we'd take a peek inside a Swedish home IN Sweden! Caroline Borg is a Mother of two: Sam (6) and Lykke (2) and lives in Gamla Enskede, South Stockholm. The freelance PR manager, creative consultant and photographer / stylist has decorated her home in calm, neutral tones, while blending vintage and antiques with the occasional contemporary piece.  Welcome to Caroline's world! 

Caroline has used Jotun Lady mineral paint which adds a lovely patina to the walls. I have used something similar on my kitchen wall (but by Icelandic company Kalklitir) and I love how it changes with the light! 

I first came across these sofa beds by Karup at IMM Cologne furniture fair back in the spring and instantly loved them. This is the first time I've spotted one in a home! Check out their website here (they do great daybeds, beds and futons too!). 

The pretty duvet cover is from Swedish brand Garbo and Friends. This porcelain pendant lamp is similar. 

The children's room has been decorated with a bed canopy and an Afroart 'nature' garland. The basket is from Olli Ella

I hope this lovely home has brought an element of calm before the weekend! 

The mineral walls kind of make me want to go all out in my own home too - I love the texture! Are you tempted too? 

If you don't already follow Caroline on instagram, it's a must! I love her blog too, it's a real feast for the eyes (mainly because she shares some delicious recipes like these 'flower biscuits'!) - check it out over at The Way We Play (Its written in Swedish). 

Looking for a little more inspiration? These beautiful homes have a similar feel and are also full of inspiration:

Wishing you a wonderful weekend friends!

Vi ses på Måndag!

  1. Hi Niki,
    Thanks for this charming tour. I am very intrigued by the mottled finish of Caroline's walls and I checked Jotun's website (I am in Canada). That did not get me anywhere so next I checked Kalklitir's and that was more productive. I learned I can order the pigment which comes in powder form. I also watched Kalklitir's video "How to paint a wall" on Vimeo but the painted wall look not too different (at least on the video) from a wall painted with latex paint. How is the mottled finish achieved? Does the paint has to be manipulated in any way? I can email Kalklitir but I thought I would check with you first.

    1. Hi Alena,
      Great question! I love the Kalklitir powder, it’s incredibly easy to apply. There are two different methods you can use to apply the paint using a brush. One is up and down, which gives you a slightly smoother, more even look and the other is the x-stroke (forming an x) which creatives a more textured / mottled look.
      I hope this helps!

  2. Very Nice Article. Thanks to share. I am very pleased to introduce with everybody about Best “Bohemian Shower Curtain” by Chelsea Boulevard. Please visit here to know more:
