The inspiring dining area of an interior designer

Last month I paid a visit to my friend Genevieve Jorn's apartment in the heart of Malmö and had a great day photographing her sitting room (you may remember the post here). The area combines with a dining space where Gen, husband Kasper and daughter Olivia gather for family meals and sit and create thanks to the wonderful light. Although I have to admit, on the day I completely took over the space with my coffee, camera equipment and general clobber!). I did manage to clear it up just in time to snap these pictures though. As part of the wonderful monthly collaboration with one of my favourite Danish homeware brands - Nordal (I do love my job) Gen acquired the rather fabulous Pharmacy sideboard chest, which has proven to be a perfect place for all her family's bits and pieces. Oh, how we need one of these in our household, how about you?!

Such a lovely space! I love the warmth from the wood and the luscious plants too!

Feeling the Hygge: My Holiday Table Setting

Sponsored post-

The winter solstice is a few weeks away and the sun never really gets very high in the sky here in Southern Sweden (is it the same where you are?). This can only mean one thing: it's time to get cosy over casual, candlelit dinners. In preparation for my favourite time of the year (admittedly it's also birthday season so I'm a little biased!), Genevieve Jorn and I had a fun afternoon creating this holiday table setting using beautiful items from the Nordal homeware collection (my Danish partner who are not only the loveliest team ever, they also design the most beautiful items - seriously!).  We selected natural linens, cast iron candle holders,  tactile stoneware  and mouthblown glass combined with a foraged wreath, dried poppies and age-old wood furniture to create a rustic vibe. Bring on the hygge!

Ahhhh, so pleased with the natural materials and layers of texture. I feel completely ready for the holiday season now!

In case you'd like to know where any of the items are from, we've mapped out an entire 'get the look' below. 

And here's a styling tip I learned from the pro (Gen!): linen tablecloths will arrive ironed and folded. To get the 'relaxed crease' look, wet the entire linen cloth and then hang it up to dry (if it's curtains you can simply hang them in place) - and then simply throw over the table.

And finally... the wreath! This year I'm really into rustic foraged wreaths. I'm hoping to create a DIY post shortly so keep an eye out!

Hope you feel as inspired as I do to get together over long lunches / dinners under candlelit!

I'm heading off to a friends cabin in the woods with friends and family for a couple of days (weeeeee!) - back Monday - see you then! Have a lovely weekend, and Happy Thanksgiving to all American friends and family!

The beautiful workspace revamp of an interior designer

If you took a peek at my Instagram stories yesterday you'll know I spent the day hanging out at My Scandinavian Home interior designer Genevieve Jorn's home. Gen is one of the few people I know that changes her home around more than I do (quite a feat!) - and this time I was over there to shoot her newly revamped office. You may remember the space from this feature (also beautiful!). Today, the dark green walls have been replaced with a soft 'antic grey' hue by Jotun and natural textures such as wood, rattan and wool have been added alongside beautiful pieces from MSH partner - Danish homeware brand Nordal. I really didn't want to leave by the end of the day, it's such a lovely, calm place to work! Here's a peek in detail....

A Vibrant, Turn-Of-The-Century Home in Malmö, Sweden

Why, hello there! I've shown quite a few Danish homes with pastel touches - and now the trend has made its way over the Öresund strait to Malmö! This charming apartment a stone's throw from my studio has been decorated in peach, mid-blue, sorbet and lavender combined with beige for a bang up to date look. I love the playful art and eclectic furniture too. Oh, and it's for sale! Come and join us in the hood, we'd love you to be a part of the gang! 

So lovely, don't you think?

The high ceilings, large windows, architraves and parquet floor are typical features of early 20th century 'sekelskiftets' architect - one of the styles that dominates this part of town. 

Could you imagine living here? If so, find out more info over at Fantastic Frank - and please do let me know if you snap it up! 

The interior has been styled by Genevieve Jorn - who I've had the pleasure of collaborating with many times (see snapshots of her home and the work we've done together here). Meanwhile, the photos have been captured by Andrea Papini, who's wife runs a Cafe Noir in town - a favourite hang out of mine. Yes, Malmö is a very small place!  

Here are a few other apartments from Sweden's third largest city to feel inspired by this bright and sunny Tuesday: 


Ha det så bra!

In Malmö, Gen's Inspiring Home Office / Guest Room Refresh




It's been a while since I visited Gen - and it's always fun as she's constantly updating her home! This time it was her home office that's been given the make-over treatment. For those of you who are new to My Scandinavian Home, Genevieve Jorn (@genevievejorn) is an ÜBER talented Canadian interior designer living in Malmö. I've been lucky enough to collaborate with Gen many times over the years.  I captured her home office a few years back. As beautiful as it was, it was fairly dark, and this room is quite narrow and doesn't get a whole lot of light. Recently, Gen replaced heavier dark details with soft, neutral textiles and touches of light wood and rattan and it has made a huge difference! A large white ergonomic desk stands in the centre of the room. The space also serves as a guest bedroom when friends and family are in town and when they're not, the bed becomes a perfect place for afternoon siestas or a quiet spot to read! I took my camera along to snap a few pictures...










Isn't it lovely? I seriously could have stayed all week (taking the occasional nap on the daybed!), it felt so serene!

If you're considering converting a room in your home into an office / guest bedroom I hope it's given you lots of inspiration! Here's the low down on where some of the items are from:

2. George and Willy Studio Roller
3. Ikea Ivar Cabinet
4. Grupa Arigato Table Lamp
5. Ikea Skarsta Desk
6. Ikea Långfjåll Chair
7. Studio Paradissi Abstract 402
8. SandSnow Linen White Linen Curtains*
9. H&M Bamboo Mirror
10. Tell More off-white Linen
11. Ab Småland Crinkle Sand Sheets
12. Gurila Portrait M
13. Grupa Arigato Wall Lamp
14. Kummin Cushion Linen Cover
15. Pismo Rattan Side Table

Also seen (on floor): Malene Birger No 03 print and Rubin Studio Composition 03

The wall colour is Antique White 1016 from Jotun lady.

Gen's used the white Arigato wall lamp and table lamp from Grupa - I like the way this brings the different corners of the room together (and there's no denying that they're pretty amazing lamps too!).

Curtains are often tricky but Gen found her beige* and white* ones at SandSnowlinen* on Etsy. They make lovely custom-made linen curtains to order.

Just wondering if there is anything else important to mention. Ah yes! The drawers under the bed - did you spot them?! They were salvaged from a vintage chest of drawers that Gen was throwing out. Love this idea!

You can also take a peek at Gen's bedroom, living room, kitchen and daughter's bedroom.

Have a wonderful day!
