The stunning monochrome home of a Swedish stylist

Hello Friday! Woohooo! It's soooo hectic around here, with just so much to do! I'll relax once it's all done and dusted and I'm sitting with one of these in my hand (love the blueberries on a stick, so simple to do too)?! How's your Friday bearing up?! Thankfully I've got a beautiful, serene home to share with you today to help us all wind down. It belongs to Swedish interior stylist and writer Jenny Hultgren who lives just outside Höganäs, not far from my parents-in-law on the Southwest coast of Sweden. Her home is a mix of designer, vintage and antique pieces and almost entirely decorated in black and white (with wood, textiles and plants used to add warmth). Let's take a look...

Jenny Hultgren - Bohemdeluxe shared with kind permission.

Oh how I'd love a home like this - beautiful spacious light-filled rooms, a 'spare' sitting room on the top floor....loving those black bannisters against a white backdrop - so dramatic!

It's amazing how much softness (and romance!) sheer white draping can add to a bedroom, the fabric over the bed looks like it's been strung from the ceiling in various places - nice and simple bedroom update / weekend DIY project?

Is there anything that stands out to you?

A note on where a few items are from: Tolix chairs, 265 Flos wall lamp, Beni Ourain rug. Get beautiful sofa covers for IKEA sofa's like this from BEMZ (select Basiq cotton, urban loose fit), Signal zig-zag floor lamp in black, white linen bedding, love this antique round wall mirror.

It's so worth checking out Jenny's instagram gallery for more inspiration...

And a little more monochrome inspiration here: the striking home of a swedish photographer,  a black and white apartment in Malmö and for a little added colour - this charming home!

Have a fab Friday!

Lovely pics from the home of a Swedish stylist

Earlier this week I showed some pics of Swedish stylist Pella Hedeby's lovely new home (oh how I wish I was lying on that daybed right now...). And then today I was browsing through Pinterest (in the name of work...of course!) and was excited to discover yet more stunning shots from her previous home captured by Sofi Sykfont. That girl has style....

It seems, whatever Pella touches turns to gold - wouldn't you agree?!

See more pics of this lovely home here

I must admit, I'm feeling the stress today. My book deadline is looming and I've got guests arriving from London tonight (excited too!).  Even so, I still wanted to pop in to share this lovely home and say hi and also thank you all for your wonderful support and encouragement!  

I'll love you and leave you with links to a few of my favoruite homes including the danish home of Dorthe Kvist,  a lovely light filled Swedish family home and a helsinki penthouse with a romantic touch. Ah so beautiful, makes me feel calmer just looking at them!

I'll be back after the weekend, I hope you have a wonderful few days!

Little Nicki's happy and relaxed boho home

I thought I'd start the week with a cheerful space full of colourful pieces. Where better than the happy home of Nicole Valentine Don (or 'Little Nicki') a Canadian stylist, blogger and DIYer living in Sydney, Australia? Her home was recently photographed by Lauren Bamford with help from stylist guru Jason Grant (the duo behind this cheerful book) and i was so excited to see the results! Little Nicki's home is a wonderful mix of flea market finds, antiques, Mexican textiles - and of course there's those plants. What a great home tour to start the week with, don't you think?!

Homeowner: Nicole Valentine Don. Photographer: Lauren Bamford. Stylist: Jason Grant.

What a truly unique home? What strikes me is just how instinctive her style is, and it makes me smile. Is there anything that stands out to you?

For a similiar look try: Half moon garland,  one of these hand jewellery stands which you canthen personalise with paint. I love this Boucherouite rug and these vintage arrows. A wonderful handmade Moroccan wedding blanket.

Other lovely, vibrant homes I've seen with a similar look (hey, it's Monday, we all need to look for colour where we can!) - include this boho Mexican home, a relaxed Florida home and a cheerful Brooklyn space.

Have a wonderful start to the week!

A lovely, calm white and grey Swedish island home

There's a howling gale outside and the rain is lashing against the windows of our summer cottage. It's actually very cosy (slippers at the ready!) - as long as the sun promises to come out tomorrow. Even so, my day has been totally brightened up by this home on the island of Dalarö in the Stockholm archipelago. Beautifully captured by the talented guys at Lovely Life, the home belongs to stylist  Mari Strengheilm,  Christian, a digital strategist and their children Dante (6) and Juno (3).  Looking out over the Baltic sea, the home is decorated in pretty shades of grey and white (love the half/half wall and chequered hall floor) with a slight African touch.  Let's take a tour...

Homeowner: Mari Strengheilm Photography: Amelia Widell.

Oj oj oj (as they say in Sweden) - what a wonderful home, don't you think?!

I'm intrigued by the bed nook in the children's bedroom - it looks incredibly cosy! It reminds me of the one in this pretty Swedish cottage - which has been used to create a private place to sleep on the landing. I also love this modern version of the bed nook. In fact I'm all for nooks in general, so much so that I've dedicated an entire Pinterest board to them! I'm sure if we look hard enough in our own homes we'd find a place to create one.

Is there anything you love in particular about this home?

There are images galore of this lovely space and a full write up /interview with Mari  (in Swedish) here

Have a lovely day!

A Norwegian home at Christmas

Those of you who have followed my blog for a while (thank you, you're lovely!) know I'm a big fan of the work of Norwegian based photographer and stylist Elisabeth Heier and her beautiful home which I've previously shown snippets of  here and here. It comes as no surprise that her Christmas decorating is equally as lovely and follows her simple, pared-back and elegant take on Scandinavian interior decorating. Here are a few festive snaps of her home this year.

Photography / styling: Elisabeth Heier

True modern Scandinavian Christmas decorating inspiration. A pared-back tree, white Helabores, paper stars strung up in the window which will light up at night, a simple wreath hung on the wall and fir tree branches in clear glass jars.

In case you're wondering where some of the items are from, I also spy the By Lassen Kubus 4 candleholder, RAR rocking chair (currently 10% off here), Knoll diamond chair and the classic Swedish Skultuna tea light holders in brass. Children's room: half-moon bedding, rabbit light.

For a slightly different look, here are some more inspiration images shot and styled by Elisabeth in her home for Norwegian magazine RUM 123 with a black, gold and Pantone's colour for 2015 - Marsala colour theme.

Photography / styling Elisabeth Heier

The gold flag garland, mirror stars and Christmas cone in black are from Tine K Home.

I absolutely love the idea of filling a glass jar or vase with old burnt out white candle stubs, so simple yet so lovely and a great use of waste.

Is there anything that stands out to you in these images? Which look do you prefer?

Have a lovely day!

PS I also love Norwegian blogger Nina of Stylizimo's Christmas decorating. So pretty!
