A Beautiful Swedish Home in Beige and Klein Blue!

Why, hello there! Thank you for all your positive comments on my Malmö guide which I posted on Friday, it's always so fun to photograph and writer about my city! Today on the blog, we're heading a little further North to Stockholm. 

The open-plan apartment uses beige as a canvas and then wonderful elements including classic designer furniture, fluffy rugs and fabulous lighting have been layered over to create oodles of interest. But what I like most of all, are the on-trend pops of colour seen in the cushions on the sofa (lavender, orange, sky blue, green) and bed (Klein blue and cinnamon). 

There's been a lot of chatter lately about the lack of clothing seen in these Scandinavian homes, so I was excited to see that this apartment has a nicely filled walk-in-wardrobe - or at least plenty of space for clothes! It also gives a hint to the type of person that lives here - quite cool by the looks of things! 

Let's crack on with the tour!

The wall between the kitchen and sitting room has been removed to create a sociable living space. An well placed island works as the in-between. 

The marble backsplash is fabulous! I love that it goes all the way up to the shelves, creating a dramatic effect! 

Floor to ceiling sheer curtains allow a calming diffused light to enter the space and add softness to the room. 

Here you can catch a glimpse of the wall hung flat screen (not often seen in these tours!) and the hallway which enters straight out into the sitting room. 

If you're colour shy but love to stay on-trend or dabble with bright tones - bedding is a perfect way to add vibrancy! The Klein blue linen bedding breaks away from the sea of beige and looks fabulous with the dark brown wall! 

This Etsy store sells a similar duvet cover* and flat sheet*

When adding colour in this way, balance the look by adding another item in the same colour (in this instance a glass candle holder!). 

How pretty is the antique bedside table? 

Long rails provide plenty of hanging space for clothes. I would love to see some shelves and drawers here too - perhaps they are in the cupboard? 

I absolutely love this chair (any idea of the name?) - it's so decadent and raises the status quo from ordinary wardrobe to luxurious walk-in-wardrobe! 

I hope you enjoyed the tour of this beautiful home in the Swedish capital! Is there anything that stood out to you?

Have a fabulous start to the week friends!

  1. Hi:) this is beautiful! Just curious if you know what color the bedroom is? Thanks!

  2. What a great place, Niki! I can't get over how the apartments in most of those you feature are laid out and styled. The integrity of history and architectural details of the buildings are kept intact, while updating (open floor plans) them in tasteful ways for a feeling of spaciousness. The couch is very cool and adds that modern touch, but my favorite is the placement of the harvest table. You have enough chairs to invite others for some hygge time of conversation, games and dining, but the table can be utilized for so many other things. Now it just needs floor to ceiling bookshelves, plants and a kitty, then life would be complete there.

  3. What a chic and cool home. I am nodding in agreement with each of Laura K’s comments. I am continually in awe of the windows of these buildings and the features like doors/doorways from main living spaces to bedrooms which are lovely and impressive while feeling “right” and not overly embellished. The vibrant blue bedding is a gorgeous counterpoint to the neutrals. I might have missed the vase if you had not pointed it out!

  4. Do you know where one could find that big, cozy sofa??

  5. I think the chair is H&M home -I have been eying it🤗

  6. This apartment strikes a great balance between being elegant and comfortable. I'm sure the tall ceilings and windows help make that possible, as others have noted. I spied a great entryway shelf/hook system to keep coats/hats handy but tidy. :)

    I'm a huge fan of having neutral walls/furnishings and adding interest with color and pattern with items that are easy to rotate, depending on your mood or the season. The blue looks fabulous!
