An eclectic family home in Norway

I love to mix things up a little here on My Scandinavian Home. This week it's been mainly about the contemporary monochrome home with crisp, clean lines. It's definitely time for some colour, it's the weekend after all! This eclectic family home in Norway is full of bursts of colour and a real mix of vintage, retro and country style. I love that it's awash with warm light. The perfect home to celebrate a few days off wouldn't you say?!

What I like most about this home is that it has a big heart - every item is unique and tells a story. You'd be able to walk in here and immediately know who lives here. I love that about a home.

And there's those  fabulous Tulip chairs and table too of course.

Mustn't forget the little kitty cat either. And my new favourite tea - Lov organic ginger-lemon tea in the kitchen (15% off with code SCANDINAVIAN).

What do you love about this home?

My Scandinavian Home turned three this week, I think that calls for a celebration don't you?! I've created over 1300 posts in that time (can you believe that?!) some of my favourites are archived under Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish or International home tours, woth a look if you have a little time!

To celebrate I'm holding a weekend give-away with an oh so cool prize so pop back over the next couple of days to enter!

Have a wonderful day!

The stockholm pad of an art director / photographer

The beauty is in the detail in this stunning monochrome Stockholm pad. The space belongs to Sara Medina Lind, a half Swedish half Canarian freelance art director and photographer. Her self-confessed passion for fashion and interior shines through in every image she takes of her home. I couldn't decide whether to include the images of the bed made with grey or white linen. In the end I left both in as inspiration. Which look do you prefer?

Oh how I love this monochrome style, how about you?

So many items I recognise including: the classic IKEA EKTORP sofa in Blekinge white, The Kinfolk Table book, 'g' playtype poster,  black sweater by swedish fashion brand Acne. Linen bedding in charcoal and white. A cheeky something from one of my favourite Swedish shops COS (I wonder what?!). Anything else?

Sara has a wonderful blog and instagram account which she constantly updates with her latest work and images of her home. I'll be her latest follower then.

More fab black and white home inspiration here, here and here.

Have a lovely day!

Duvet day in this beautiful Swedish bedroom?!

Hello! And a big ciao to all wonderful new Italian readers too! It's still as grey as ever here in southern Sweden and what I really feel like doing is spending the day in bed reading. Ha! Fine chance! Which is probably why I chose this Swedish apartment for today's home tour - the light filled master bedroom is definitely the star of the show! it's beautiful! The little girl's room is incredibly cute too.  Could you spend the day here?!


The thing I like the most about the master bedroom (yes, I'm still thinking about it...) is that they clearly have a large wardrobe in the little girls room for clothes and yet they still have an open rail for the prettiest clothes (or tomorrow's clothes?) in the bedroom which looks fab. Also, I like the way they've hung the art photography off centre over the bed. And finally a shelf incorporated into a headboard is a great way to do away with bedside tables for a cleaner look. 

Some fab pieces from the apartment I know and love: RAR rocking chair in the little girls bedroom with a cosy sheepskin throw and Harlequin wallpaper. String shelves in black. Flos 265 wall light in the dining area. HAY Polygon throw and linen bedding in charcoal. Eames DSR chairs in white and black. 

Anything that caught your eye?

More fabulous bedroom inspiration here, here and here with the addition of my bedroom here. And could you IMAGINE sleeping here?! 

Must-have bedroom accessory right now: this moroccan pom pom throw (as seen on SF Girl By Bay).

Have a lovely day!

A fab monochrome duplex in Gothenburg

I must admit I'm a bit bleary eyed this morning. We touched down in Sweden late last night and two extra strong coffees haven't helped this morning...worrying?! Perhaps this space will lift my spirits a little? I do love a duplex and this light filled one in Gothenburg is fab. What strikes me is how difficult it must have to been to decorate with all of those angles, and yet the result  appears effortless and very cool. Love the monochrome and wood palette too. The perfect space to brighten up a grey Tuesday wouldn't you agree?!

Stadshem via Coco Lapine and La Maison D'Anna G with thanks
Spirits are officially lifted! How about yours?!

I can see so many items I love in this space: 'Hey You' print, Cushions: svenskt tenn,  lucky boy Sunday hand, striped, dotted and Hay dot. Cross blanket, HAY tray and DLM tables, artists wooden hand and wooden bird. Thonet 214 chair in white.

I hope you have a lovely day!

A serene Stockholm apartment

Hello! Hope you've had a fabulous weekend? My little family and I have been enjoying a few days in London with family celebrating halloween and even an early bonfire night! It's been so much fun. We're heading home to Sweden today. Amidst all my packing I wanted to quickly share this lovely Stockholm space currently for sale through Fantastic Frank. The colour palette has been kept neutral through out using white, wood, rattan and light grey. I would feel very calm there this Monday morning, how about you?!

I could definitely see myself recreating the beautiful dining space, it looks so serene! I wish I knew where the table and chairs are from - anyone know? The Muuto adaptable dining table is fairly similar.  Is there anything you love in particular about this apartment?

More white, beige and grey inspiration here, here and here.

This week my blog turns three! I can't believe it's been so long. I still absolutely love writing it and I'm so excited to see it expands as time goes on! As a big thank you for all your incredible support I'm holding a fun give-away on here this weekend so make sure you pop by! More to follow....

Have a lovely day!

PS Thank you to Italian publication La Repubblica for featuring an interview with me. What an honour!
