The Cosy, Small Flat of a Copenhagen Creative and Plant Lover

It was so fun to hear you all loved yesterday's home tour as much as I did. What's not to love about a beautifully restored Swedish country home (and Johanna renovated it to perfection too!). Today, I have something for all the city dwellers amongst us - a cosy, charismatic apartment in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. Dane Ann-Kristin Løye Hejl shares 'moments of motherhood, knitting and little corners of her home' through her inspiring instagram feed @annkristinlhejl (if you don't follow her already, it's a must!). A keen gardener, the flat is filled with plants and flowers - and on warm summer days, the balcony doors are thrown open so the family can enjoy a little outdoor oasis. Welcome to Ann-Kristin's world! 

 The pink crate-style storage boxes are everywhere right now in Scandinavian homes. You can pick up various colours at Lagerhaus. Now I've pointed them out, you won't be able to 'unsee' it!!! I think I'm going to refer to them as the IT crate from now on!

A vintage cabinet above the dining table adds charm to the dining area in the corner of the sitting room - while adding some extra storage (while leaving floor space free - perfect!).

Spot the IT crate? 

Ann-Kristin's creative projects are never far away. On the table you can catch a glimpse of one of her latest knitting projects (they have their own hashtag on instagram for good reason - I love everything she creates!). 

The pretty bedding is from JUNA Design - a Danish textile brand with strong a sustainable core. 

It's about 27 degrees celsius (80 Fahrenheit) here in Southern Scandinavia today, so I can imagine Ann-Kristine and her family are sitting out on this balcony enjoying a few rays surrounded by the divine scent of blooming summer flowers (I love this pic on her instagram - so cute!).

Here on the Swedish west coast, we're about to wander down to the water for a dip (it'll be the first of around five swims my children will take today!!). Last night, the final swim was at 9.45pm - and the sun was still up!). Swedish summertime at its finest (we need to make the most of it while it lasts!). Do you live near some cool water you can swim in too?

Before I head off with my towel, I'll leave you with some other  of my favourite Copenhagen home tours to feel inspired by:

A cosy Danish loft full of plants and vintage treasures
Johanne and Luka's beautiful Copenhagen townhouse
The timeless Danish home of a jewellery designer

Gotta love the cool, relaxed Danish style, right?

Have a lovely day! I hope the sun is shining where you are too!

A charming home on Sweden's west coast

Happy Friday! Woohoo! Ive got a thing about Friday home tours - I feel a need to find a space I'd like to hang out in all weekend. Something homely, charming and personal. And just a little bit cool too. I This home fits the bill! Kristin Lagerkvist is the blogger behind Krickelin, owner of shop For Good Luck and a stylist and photographer. her creativity shines through in her previous home and now her wonderful new home which she shares with her family in Varberg on Sweden's west coast.  The space has been decorated with lovely vintage and antique touches, an abundance of art and a dramatic dark blue accent colour. Let's take a peak inside Kristin's world. 

Kristin Lagerqkvist - Elle Decoration

What a lovely, relaxed home, don't you think? So personal!

Get the look: Panton globe pendant lamp (over dining table), Thonet chair, macrame hanging plant holder, source a beautiful Beni Ourain rug here. I'm a big fan of antique rocking chairs with cane seating - this vintage one is lovely. Kristin painted the walls with Dijon which she added some black to. For a similar colour you could also try Stiffkey or Hague blue.
See more lovely pictures of her home over at Elle Decoration Sweden.

I also love this beautiful home of an artist / florist, also in Varberg. 

Other great links from around the web today:

How to make a super quick and simple cushion for a stool (DIY project for the weekend?!).

It looks like everyday is Friday in the cheerful studio of Joy Cho.

Thoughts on a radiator that pops?

What was I saying yesterday about avocado?! 

Speaking of food - I love this mouth-watering interview with Laura and Noma of beautiful blog Our Food Stories (check out this ice-cream....mmmm!).

If you're looking for some music to play on Spotify over the weekend I love Swedish singer Melissa Horn (such a beautiful voice and a current favourite!).

I hope you have a great weekend - any fun plans?

See you Monday!

The serene Bergen home of Gunn Kristin Monsen

Hej! I hope you had a wonderful weekend?! It's been pouring all day here in South Sweden, but I kinda don't mind a wet Monday, do you? I mean it's better than a wet Saturday, right?! I kicked off the day with a photo shoot in my bedroom (sounds dodgy, it's not! Check out instagram stories for more if you're curious!) supported by copious amounts of coffee and the dulcet tones of my friend, Kat Healy on Spotify (she has such a beautiful voice)! Another talented lady is Gunn Kristin Monsen - a visual storyteller and lifestyle photographer based in Bergen, Norway. You only have to look at Gunn's beautiful Instagram feed to get an idea of her work and innate sense of style (she also has a lovely blog). Gunn frequently shares snapshots of her home which has been decorated in soft blue and grey tones and white to reflect the lake it overlooks.  She kindly gave me permission to share a few of them on My Scandinavian Home today.  Enjoy!

All photography: Gunn Kristin Monsen

How lovely! There's something poetic about Gunn's photography. I love that there's flower theme throughout  (look closely and you'll spot one on the bed too...).

Is there anything that stands out to you?

If you'd like to see a little more Norwegian home inspiration today, don't miss this archive (as always, if this pops up first just scroll passed!).

Have a great start to the week!

PS I'm gearing up to several press interviews with US newspapers this afternoon which have been set up ahead of the launch of the US & Canadian version of my new book Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life tomorrow - so exciting! Better go and prepare (one's a podcast!).

A vintage inspired Swedish home full of soul

Every now and again I stumble across a beautifully unique, creative, Swedish home that's full of soul.  This is one of them. Tuva Minna Linn, husband Peter and their two children and dog live in a former missionary house in the countryside in Southern Sweden. The house dates back to 1921 and is teeming with vintage treasures and beautiful patterns, and designed throughout so all the family can feel happy and relaxed. So wonderful! A few weeks ago photographer Kristin Lagerqvist (who's home I once featured here), paid a visit.....

Photography: Kristin Lagerqvist Interior design: Tuva Minna Linn

So lovely! And so lovely life!

The wallpapers, the textiles, the quirky art, the one-off pieces. It's all so inspiring, don't you think?

Is there anything that catches your eye?

Get the look from Minna's home: Boucherouite rugs (this one is beautiful - it's a one-off though so you'd need to be quick!) and vintage kilims (love these!), this leather chesterfield is similar, Minna sells vintage kimonos in her online shop. Children's bed canopy and bunting. Try William Morris for similar wallpaper (Hyacinth is a pretty one). 

You can see the full tour of Minna's home here. You might also like to check out Minna's lovely blog, instagram and online shop Oddlovin'

Other homes captured by Kristin include the lovely Swedish home of Johanna Bradford, the boho home and studio of an artist and florist and a dairy in the Swedish countryside. Sooooo beautiful, in a fab boho way.

Have a lovely day!

PS With my favourite month of the year just round the corner there are so many exciting things coming up on My Scandinavian Home  (even if I say so myself!) including a big give-away this evening and a tour of my home with Christmas touches tomorrow (I've been busy with my little elves! Always nerve-racking to share too - eeeeek!), as well as lots of other Nordic Christmas inspiration (and of course the usual Scandinavian inspired home tours)....soooooo excited!

The lovely Swedish home of Johanna Bradford

Swedish interior stylist Johanna Bradford used to blog over at lovely life before moving on to new adventures with her wonderful blog. She recently welcomed her friend Kristin Lagerqvist into her home to take some snapshots. Kristin has a distinct signature style which is truly personal and unique, making you feel like you are in the home and looking at it with your own eyes. It helps that Johanna's home is truly relaxed and lovely too - with a blend of classic, contemporary and pretty patterns. Perfect home tour to celebrate the weekend, don't you agree?!

Photographer: Home owner Johanna Bradford. Photographer: Kristin Lagerqvist. Shared with kind permission. 

What a charming home, don't you think?! You might recognise the style as I've featured not one, not two but three of her past apartments herehere and here.

Get the look: The kitchen has been painted in light grey no.17 by Farrow & Ball. Row of hooks, Marshall speakers, wine glass rack, willow wallpaper, source a similar beautiful boucherouite rug, macrame wall hanging, Le Grand Air sofa, Gubi coffee table, Private rug.

See more pictures of Johanna's charming home here.

Other Friday finds:

This Danish home belonging to Cille Grut is simply stunning!

How to perfect the minimalist look (Ok, really what caught my eye was the most beautiful dark blue sofa E.V.E.R).

Possibly the prettiest wardrobe for a little girls bedroom I've seen.

I was so happy to wake up to 30,000 followers on Instagram. It's fast becoming one of my favourite social medias (not to mention addictive!), thanks for making it so much fun!

Here's Friday night supper sorted, mmmm! And they had me at the 'alioli' with this recipe.

That's all from me folks, now if I can peel myself away from Ella here in Sri Lanka, we've got a train to catch!

Have a wonderful weekend!

PS This home is filed under my 'International Homes archive' - not that I want to wile away a morning for you.....but just saying
