An Elegant 19th Century Swedish Home With Grey Accents

Why, hello there! How is your week going? Here in Sweden, it's a bank holiday ('Kristi himmelfärdsdag = Ascension Day). A thunderstorm has rolled in over the water and so we're all bunking up at home - and I'll probably be spending most of the morning in this corner! One of my other favourite hobbies is looking at houses and apartments for sale (do you enjoy that too?) - and I was so excited to see this late 19th century space in Gothenburg, Sweden. There's something about the beautiful wood floor, cornicing and dramatically high ceilings that have got my pulse racing. I love the subtle light grey nuances too - you could move right in and not change a thing! If only the owners would leave the furniture behind too - I spy some fab design classics! 

A Gubi semi-pendant lamp* hangs over an oval shaped dining table which has been circled with iconic wishbone chairs*

It's really trendy to do away with the upper kitchen cabinets. It looks lovely and clean, but sadly, only possible in larger kitchens (unless you're a total minimalist!). 

I've also noticed darker stone worktops creeping into kitchens, and slowly replacing lighter marble tops. Although I have to say, I still really love our countertop at the cottage (keep an eye out for our recent summer cottage kitchen update tomorrow!).  

I spy a classic Danish Bestlite BL6 wall lamp over the sofa. They're pricey but I think they're a great investment as they're timeless. 

And just look at those elegant double 'spegel' doors!

Another classic: the owners have made a reading corner out of the well-loved Swedish DUX Jetson chair and String shelving - both of whom have their headquarters here in Southern Sweden. 

A Flowerpot table lamp* catches the light on the desk in the bedroom (&Tradition also do a portable version of these which you can take out and use on your garden table!) and a Hay polygon quilt has been draped over the bed. 

Could you imagine living here? 

I certainly could. A pied á terre perhaps! *Dreaming*.

Right friends, I'm off to play some games with the girls while we ride out this thunderstorm. I hope you have a lovely, relaxing day - and the sun is shining for you!
