Retro: Swedish style

Another home that was recently for sale here in Skåne. I tell you, Skåne's the place to be :). I am starting to think I should be sponsored by Hemnet, the Swedish estate agent website, or maybe even start my own estate agent business, the trouble is I'd want to buy all the homes myself. This fab retro inspired home was recently sold here in sunny Malmö.

Bo-laget Via Do you fancy this
There's those white floors again.....but I my absolute favourite item here has to be the table and chairs, I would loooooove this set! What about you?

Any great plans for the weekend? We're heading to a great little girls afternoon birthday tea this afternoon and then another little birthday party tomorrow so they'll be cake and more cake. Never ever a bad thing.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Retro Stockholm apartment

As usual wonderful styling by the Swedish estate agent Fantastic Frank (note the flowers in glass bottles, the open vintage suitcase and the leaves taped to the wall). It helps when they have a fab retro style apartment to play with too. Mint walls combined with mid-century teak (I spy a a vintage drinks trolley in teak like mine) and the Copper Shade Pendant by Tom Dixon make for a very cool home, in my eyes. And I love the small details too such as the siver birch tree trunk in the hallway used as a coat stand - potential DIY project?

Any take home ideas for your home?

Before I rush off I just want to thank you so much for all your lovely comments about my new kitchen blackboard wall yesterday. I really do appreciate reading all your thoughts and views and it makes writing the blog all the more worthwhile.

And secondly, my blog friend Tracey is having a give-away, if you love fun, bright notecards nip over and enter here. But I still want to win OK?

Have a lovely evening!

Swedish home with vintage finds: part II

Yesterday we took a peek around the wonderful  little children's bedroom from Johanna Gartmyr's Southern Swedish family home. And today I promised you the remainder of this fab home crammed full of wonderful retro flea market finds and timeless Scandinavian designer pieces. I particularly love how Johanna and her husband have balanced the splashes of colour in each room, for example the bright yellow lamp matches with the retro chilren's high chair in the dining area...

I spy variations of the String shelves in the dining and sitting room areas. The IKEA black and white striped STOCKHOLM RAND rug in the sitting room and the 'round elefant' black tray from Svenskt Tenn in the last picture.

Such a fab, happy home! Is there anything you particularly love?

PS Thank you Johanna for your kind permission  to share these images (taken by sister, Lisa Wikstrand).

PPS My Scandinavian Home is finally on Facebook as of a month ago (although it has an identity disorder and thinks it's a Tumblr so if you like to have your day occasionally interrupted by a pretty interior picture it could be worth a 'like'. Oh and I am also a little addicted to Pinterest too, are you on there too?

Beautiful spaces with retro furniture in Japan

While taking a look through some of my favourite blogs last night I came across this fantastic Japanese shop 'Truck furniture' via wonderful blog 79 ideas. The retro furniture they sell is just fantastic.
