A Bright, White Swedish Home With Mid Century Touches

There is something very special about the spring light in Sweden. Even my mother commented on it when she was over recently. On some days it can be pin sharp on others, it's soft and filtered! It's at this time of the year our homes really come into their own with the dappled light leaving ripples on the light wood floors and white walls. It's a time when we can finally open the windows and invite the crisp, clear air indoors and marvel at the lime green leaves and blossom (after a long spell of dormancy!). This lovely apartment in Gothenburg caught my eye this morning for that very reason. Look out for the simple yet lovely spot in the kitchen window, ochre vintage chairs, mid-century touches, beautiful tiled masonry oven and William Morris wallpaper (a popular choice in Swedish homes these days!). Enjoy the tour! 

How lovely! 

I'll never tire of old light wood floors, how about you? 

For more swedish pads today - why not delve through this archive, there's SO much inspiration in there!

  1. is the wallpaper in the hallway also william morris? so beautiful!

    1. Funny you saying that, I was going to comment the same. The wallpaper (I believe) is from a very famous Swedish designer called Josef Frank

    2. I believe it's William Morris wallpaper. Josef Frank's style was very different.

    3. The wallpaper in the kitchen and in the hallway is the same William Morris design - Golden Lily, but in different colourways (green/red and indigo).

  2. I, too, enjoy the spring light. Especially in late afternoon/early evening when the sun streams into the windows on the side of my house facing the garden. Normally, when trees have leaves, I get very little light on that side of the house so this is a very special time of the year.

    I love the colourful chair by the window, so inviting for reading a good book and a coffee.
    And, white alstromaerias - my faves.

  3. What an elegant home! I love all the wallpaper choices. The window seat with the vases mounted on the walls is where I'd be spending all of my time.

  4. Wonderful. I just love the wide plank pale floors in Swedish homes. Very warm and cozy.
