Perfect Harmony in a Serene Swedish Home

While the Danish home I featured on Monday was full of playful touches and bold choices (those pink stairs!), today's home is the epitome of calm. In fact, the very reason I chose to share this early 20th century Gothenburg apartment is because I'm tired of the white walls in my home and looking for a new colour scheme - something soothing and light yet with a subtle warmth. For me, it's the combination of light nuances of grey / beige (AKA greige) in combination with the natural wood which creates such a beautiful, timeless style and sense of harmony - something the Swedes do so well! I'll be pinning many of these shots to my Pinterest today. I hope you find this lovely apartment inspiring too! 

If only I had space to store all my shoes like this at home - loving the floor to ceiling shelves by Elfa (I'm still thrilled with my wardrobe and children's storage which I installed this spring!). 

If you'd like to see more pictures of this serene Swedish home, hop on over to Alvhem

And for other lovely tours today, why not delve into the Swedish home archive - where you can find everything from country houses and cabins to city apartments and tiny handmade mobile homes (if this apartment pops up first, simply scroll on past). 

Stor kram!
