A white Swedish apartment with an interesting míx

Hello! It's yet another grey day here in Sweden (apparently this is the darkest November on record!). Sometimes I love a little bleakness (really, I do!), but today I have a photo shoot and the lack of light will be a challenge. So, I'm in need of another home to brighten up my day, how about you?! I think this Swedish apartment fits the bill!  I love the natural light and the unusual mix of styles. The chair and lamp in the corner of the sitting room look great next to the contemporary pendant light and coffee table. And I love the addition of all the plants and flowers.

What do you like the most about this space?

One of my most coveted items right now is a round vase like the one you see on the dining table. Swedish stylist Lotta Agaton's also a fan - there's one on the table of the home she styled here. I love the glassware in her own home too.

If you're feeling inspired by natural light today (yes, I'm obsessed!) I love thisthis, and this home. Otherwise there's always mirrors like in this wonderful apartment, or candles like in this cosy Finnish dining setting.

I got a mail from my friends at Dutch company Oh My Home this morning telling me about their new ceramics line - and I had to share the link, the items are so beautiful! I'm a big fan of their posters too - the 'Whale all be fine' and sleeping Polar Bear ones would be so cute in a children's room. A little mid-week shopping therapy!

Have a lovely day!

A serene Dutch home in whites and browns

One of my favourite interior blogs of late is The Style Files. Author Danielle has the most incredible sense of style and  I love stopping by to see her daily posts. The sense of style is also reflected in her relaxed, boho home in the Netherlands which is decorated using many products from her shop, Le Souk.  I wrote to Danielle this morning to ask if I could show a tour of her home here on My Scandinavian Home and not only did she say yes, she also offered us all 10% off any item in her store until 30th November with the code MSH10. Result! Thanks Danielle! Here's a sneak peek of her home which has been kept mainly white with notes of brown through out for a serene, relaxed vibe.

What a beautiful home, don't you think?

I love the Moroccan touches. Anything that stands out to you in particular?

The shots have been taken by Finnish photographer and stylist Paulina Arcklin. You can see more of her work here.

Have a lovely day!

PS Local Malmö online children's store The Youngsters are holding a really fun father's day instagram competition to win 500 SEK (that's around 65 USD) to spend in the online store. To enter share a picture of your vision of fatherhood on instagram using the hashtag #fatherhoodwiththeyoungsters and then tag @theyoungsters, such a lovely idea!

The fabulous Finnish home of a creative duo Part III

How many wonderful new angles can you shoot in one home? When it comes to Helsinki based interior architect and designer Joanna Laajisto and photographer Mikko Ryhänen's home the answer is never enough! This will be my third post (see previous posts here and here) and every time the home tour is equally as inspiring! Here are some snap shots of their kitchen, dining room and sitting room taken by Mikko. Pretty incredible don't you think?!

A few items I see and love: White Thonet 209 chairs in the kitchen,  black and white Marimekko bowls, Bertoia sidechairs and sheepskin throw, Carl Hansen CH25 Lounge Chair, a vintage moroccan rug and last but not least a fabulous Knoll Platner coffee table.

I think my favourite thing from these shots (although it's extremely difficult to pin it down to one thing) is the Knoll Platner coffee table and vintage Moroccan rug combination - they work so well together, don't you think?

I could spend my day recovering with my leg raised here (see yesterday's post!), how about you?!

For more beautiful Finnish home tours don't miss this pared back cabin, Minna's family holiday home in the Finnish archipelagos, and a cosy and warm Finnish table setting.  The Finns really do have a great sense of style don't they?!

Have a lovely day!

A Swedish apartment in notes of white, cream and beige

There's something very pretty and serene about this Gothenburg home. I'm not sure if it's the way it's been photographed, the calm white, cream and beige tones or the vintage touches or perhaps a combination of all three? But there's something about it that I really like. Have you noticed how cream / beige walls have made a bit of a come back this Autumn? Although I'm more of a white wall kind of gal there's no denying beige adds a lovely element of warmth especially as it gets darker outside (the clocks go forward in a few weeks eeeek, let's not talk about it!). I could see myself padding around here, how about you?!

Anything you love in particular about this home? I think the kitchen is really lovely.

I've had a couple of questions about the print and after a little research pinned it down to the Insect Alphabet print / poster by Martin Lannering here.

A big thank you to Grazia France who included my blog in a list of 'eight interior blogs to boost your apartment' (here), what an honour!

Have a lovely day!

White Swedish apartment with great art

This Gothenburg apartment caught my eye this morning, it's just what I'm in the mood for! White wood floors, fun artwork, beautiful arched windows and a standard hydrangea in the bedroom - why not?! I could work all day from that table by the window, how about you?!








Stadshem with thanks
I see a few lovely items including: the G playtype print, HAY tray table and DLM (Don't Leave Me) table, Thonet 214 chair, Sheepskin rug, HAY dot hallingdal cushion. Find vintage industrial pendant lamps on etsy. Hmmm, what else, what else?!

Could you pad around here today?

Have a lovely day!

Going Dutch with white and splashes of colour

I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying writing this blog right now, there are just so many fabulous homes out there! This particular space  (shared with generous permission from Souraya of Binti Home) belongs to Antoinette and her husband and two boys in Holland. I love that it's white with splashes of colour  (of course!) which gives it a bright and playful feel but i also love that it's teeming with personal, quirky touches. This is turning out to be a bit of a Dutch week....!

A few tips on where items are from: Yellow lamp from HK Living, pink vase is IKEA, cups on table from Fest Amsterdam, cup with lady is Donna Wilson. The pink lamp is SnowPuppe.  Eames armchair RAR.

You can see more wonderful pictures of Annettes home on Instagram.

A calm white Swedish home

Good morning and hello September! I read somewhere that September is meant to be the most relaxing month of the year. So let's put that to the test! Today's home tour is the picture of calm. It's been decorated in white throughout with just a touch of black and green throughout to create the perfect balance. A great way to start a relaxing month don't you think?!

I had a long chat with a friend last night about whether she should paint her bedroom floor light grey or grey 'wash it'  (yes, we take these things very seriously!). Looking at this home, I think I know the answer. What do you think?

Love, love love the Pia Wallén Cross Blanket as seen in the bedroom.

Some exciting news: being British you can imagine how much I love my tea. I'm therefore delighted to welcome new sponsor LØv Organic, producers of the most delicious, refreshing and soothing organic tea (did I also mention the packaging is beautiful?!). So exciting!  This September they're holding a 'LØv is' campaign and the lovely LØv Organic team are offering us all 15% off with code SCANDINAVIAN. Yay! Since it's the 'relaxing' month I'm going for LØv is Pure and the LØv is Zen variety (although I also have a bit of a penchant for Ginger-Lemon green tea). How about you?  You can keep up to date with the latest Løv Organics blends on Facebook and their international newsletter.

Oh and another note Kids Brand Store are celebrating their 3 year jubileum with 15% off everything (including my favourites Noa Noa, Molo and ChillNorway) for the next three days. Just thought you might want to know...see you there!!

Have a wonderful start to the week!
