My Scandinavian Home Studio Online Interior Design Service Now Live!! + A Tour of The Studio in a Converted Factory

I've pushed myself out of my comfort zone many times with my business over recent years (cue: heart thumping and eyes wide open while the rest of the house enjoys a peaceful slumber! - do you recognise the feeling?). But nothing prepared me for the amount of effort it would take to set-up a My Scandinavian Home online interior design service!! The reason was that I was really keen for it to offer just the right type of help you might need with your home - whether that's re-arranging the furniture you already have, creating a beautiful room from scratch that tells your story or simply adding that Scandinavian touch.

And today, the My Scandinavian Home Studio affordable online interior design service is finally live!! PHEW! And YAY! And everything in between!

You can find out more about the service and get help from my wonderful (and I mean REALLY wonderful), passionate, creative, professional Scandinavian interior design team over at the new My Scandinavian Home Studio website.

In the meantime, I thought you might like to see a few pics from the interior design team headquarters in a converted spinnery factory just outside Gothenburg!

I wonder if anyone would notice if I moved my bed in?!

I hope this interior design service is going to be everything you hoped for and more! Please feel free to share the news with anyone you know who might find my new service helpful. And also I'm always open to thoughts and suggestions - so if you have any feedback or ideas just drop me a mail! 

I am so looking forward to sharing your room transformations here on My Scandinavian Home and on Instagram! 

FYI if you'd like to be one of the first to use the service, please do send me a mail and I'd be very happy to send you a big discount code (five available!). 

Wishing you a very happy Friday - I think it's time to go and enjoy a glass of bubbles with a big 'skål' to all the team that made this happen - Emma, Sara, Tobias, Carl and Marcus (and my forever patient husband and children!). 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend - see you on Monday (I've got a beautiful home tour to share with you). 


PS Happy designing over at My Scandinavian Home Studio

A Present From Me To You: A Special Discount On Your New Room Design!

Tjena! Thank you so much for the hugely positive response to the new My Scandinavian Home Studio online interior design service! I've been smiling all week!

I loved hearing about which room you would like to re-design and why in the previous post as well as on Instagram and Facebook. We now have two sterling testers: Jodie Sperling and Nina Pethers!

Don't worry if that's not you! To celebrate the launch this Friday (1st March) we're thrilled to offer the first twenty people to sign up to a new room design a third off the usual rate (i.e. 200 euros instead of 300 euros).  All you need to do is send me a mail and I'll notify you as soon as the interior design service (and website) launches together with a special discount code. The service is available to everyone, pretty much anywhere in the world.

We're so looking forward to helping you turn your home into a beautiful Scandinavian haven, one room at a time!


PS Sorry for the radio silence this week, I'm so happy to be back after the holidays.  I thought I'd kick off the week with a beautiful home tour - see you tomorrow!

Umber and Chestnut Accents in a Lovely Swedish Home

Rust, umber, chestnut, chocolate - rich shades of dark brown are turning out to be the unsung hero of 2018! I was sceptical at first and a tad nervous about painting my office in Norwegian Wood (especially after my seven year old's colour comparison, which I won't repeat!). But now that I've lived with it for a month (alongside the blushing peach in my bedroom) I absolutely love it. Deep browns have such a calm, warm and sophisticated feel to them. If you're still weary, but tempted, why not start with some more subtle touches? Gothenburg based Swedish interior stylist Elin Odnegård has opted for rich chocolate accents in her home which she has combined with milky white, beige, soft grey and powder for a truly calm aesthetic.  Let's take a peek...

An uber comfy looking 70's armchair picked up at a flea market has been paired with the 'Be Quiet' print and a Muuto wood table lamp

I do love the print! It reminds me a little of The Twits!

Elin has painted the wooden Ivar cupboard from IKEA in Norwegian Wood from Jotun.

A Tom Dixon Mirror Ball Pendant and Knoll Cesca Cane armless chairs bring a touch of the seventies vibe to the dining area.

The shelves behind the dining table are used to display a collection of one of ceramic pieces including pretty white vase made by Elin's friend Emmeli Hultqvist.

These powder coloured sheer curtains are so pretty - they add so much softness to the kitchen dining area which also features the Muuto Fluid pendant light.

The Rabbit with Small Hat print, a Sandqvist rucksack and personalised kitchen cabinets from IKEA look lovely against a wall painted in Balans by Jotun lady.

So, what did you think? Liking the brown accents?

If you'd love to see more of Elin's home hop on over to her instagram feed along where she sahres daily snippets along with her latest interior projects.  Or for more general information about Elin's work and to ogle some truly beautiful images from her portfolio - visit her website here.

For more brown inspo today there's always the 'brown' archive (yes, I have an archive for everything!) - I especially love this home!

Have a great day everyone!

PS It's so crazy hot here in Sweden that the Government has actually issued a ban on disposable barbecues due to the risk of forest fire anywhere south of Stockholm (the message was received in the form of a text and e-mail!) - absolutely nuts for the time of year!

The fabulous Danish home of an interior designer

It's Friday - yaaaaaay! And have I got a home tour to celebrate?! If you popped by on Wednesday you'll remember this fabulous danish home. And today, we're going to take tour around the home of the designer behind it - Natalia Sánchez Echevarria. Founder of Copenhagen based interior design company Spatial Code, Natalia has also lived in Barcelona, Paris, Vienna and New York (such great cities!). Her interior design philosophy is to create a personal identity working with textures, tactility and details using natural materials, handmade furniture and sensuous textures. Her own Danish home is testimony to this.  Let's take a peek....

Homeowner / stylist: Natalia Sánchez Echevarria / Spatial Code. Photography: Line Thit Klein - shared with kind permission

A few items I know and love: Tulip dining table, Möller chairs model 75. For a similar bed spread try this one.  Black String shelving. Bestlite wall lamp.

That lovely light green paint in her bedroom seems to be a part of Natalia's signature style. It's such a pretty colour, don't you think? Try Farrow & Ball Borrowed Light for similar.

Is there anything in particular that stands out to you?

A very special thank you to Danish photographer extraordinaire, Line Thit Klein who gave me permission to share not one but two of the fabulous homes she's photographed this week. Line is one of my favourite interior photographers and always finds the loveliest homes. More home tours by Line here, here and here.

I'll be back tomorrow with a really exciting weekend give-away - for everyone! So if you have the time make sure you pop back!

Have a wonderful Friday!

One Swedish apartment, two different ways of doing grey

Swedish estate agents Fastighetsbyrån took one apartment and asked three talented Swedish stylists to decorate it (cue: blog frenzy!). The results are incredible and give real insight into how to transform a home. My favourite two are by Tina Hellberg and Hans Blomquist who took the colour of the moment: grey, and made the apartment their own. Which look do you prefer?!

Hans Blomquist: 

Tina Hellberg:

So fascinating don't you think? Hans has gone all out charcoal grey for a 'cocoon' like feel, where as Tina has kept the space white with grey accent colours. I love the striking nature of Hans' styling but perhaps find Tina's more livable in as I like a lot of light.

Which would you go for?

As mentioned, there's a third look too, created by Mikael Beckman. Mikael went for whites, greens and brass. You can see the final look here.

New sponsor alert and so very excited about this one. Please provide a warm welcome to new Australian online shop Room To Decorate. Founder Dianne was always receiving compliments on her own home and as a result opened Room to Decorate to provide Australians and New Zealanders with oh so cool Scandinavian inspired home-ware (my favourits include this light, cushion and cup and saucer), We like! You can also find Room To Decorate on Facebook, TwitterPinterest and blog. Thank you for supporting my wonderful sponsors who make this blog happen!

Have a lovely day!

PS Thank you so much for entering the weekend give-away. The competition is now closed and I will contact the winner today via e-mail. Look out for the next one in two weeks time!
