A striking black and white Danish home

Today I'd like to share a fab Danish home tour with an incredibly striking contrast. It's the family home of Sofie and Frank Christensen Egelund and their four children located just outside Copenhagen. The home fascinates me as it goes from serene white to a striking 'moody' dark grey in the kitchen. You may also notice the vast array of VIPP pedal bins dotted around the house. Sofie is Granddaughter to the founder of VIPP and now runs the company. The yellow one's my favourite (it would look amazing against the grey), how about you?!

Nuevo Estilo via 79 ideas and Desire to Inspire

A few classics I know and love: Vitra Lounge Chair & Ottoman, Vitra coffee table, and the Butterfly stool. Zettel'z 5 Chandelier, and Wood Lamp by Muuto. 

If I were to choose a favoruite space in this home I would actually go for the staircase! I'm serious!!There is something about an all white staircase - even though it might not be the most practical. That or the beautiful home office. How about you?

Thank you so much to everyone for entering the Hommum give-away at the weekend! I have e-mailed the winner. Look out for another weekend give-away on here soon! 

Have a lovely day!

A Finnish space fit for a superhero

Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend? Last week I went out for a drink with Peggy of wonderful children's blog Paul & Paula and it got me thinking how long ago I showed fabulous children's space inspiration.The monochrome and wood 'superhero' children's bedroom and playroom have been created by Finnish blogger Sini for her little boy and girl. Sini has personalised many of the items in the two rooms which just goes to show what you can do with a little DIY. For example I love the way she has jazzed up a white STUVA cupboard with half moon stickers and a MALM chest of drawers with black rain drops. And how cute is the 'superhero sleeping' garland?!

A quick round up of items I know and love:  TUVBRĂ„CKA black and white striped bedding, STRING shelving, MUUTO dots coat hook, Ferm Living wire basket. Man in the moon print, personalised letters garland, lego storage. Mini rain drop stickers and other fab stickers by Ferm Living. Pear shaped wooden play house from Rock & Pebble. The curtain fabric is Kulkue by Finnish brand Marimekko.

I love this very simple yet extremely clever half moon DIY project too.

What a perfect space for a super hero don't you think?!

PS for children's clothes my favourite shops are Smallable (always a favourite for Scandinavian designer brands) and Polpettine for absolutely beautiful girls clothes. Do you have any favourite stores?

Have a lovely start to the week!

A stunning Gothenburg home with a black floor

The Friday home tour always calls for something extra special. So this morning I've been hunting high and low for a space which I think is simply amazing. And this is it. A Gothenburg apartment with beautiful high ceilings, white walls and grounded by a black floor to create a homely feel. I love the cognac and grey accents and the beautiful classical wishbone (or CH24) chairs in the dining room too. What a fabulous home, don't you think?!

What do you love about this home?

You can take a look through the entire Stadshem archive (for beautiful home after beautiful home inspiration) here.

Incidentally I can't believe how popular yesterday's home tour was. On Facebook alone it's already received over 470 likes and 23 shares - incredible! So great to see!

Before I head off, I've got a quick reminder: I'll be holding a really exciting weekend give-away here on My Scandinavian Home over the next two days so don't forget to stop by and enter, it will be open to everyone!

Have a lovely day!
