my scandinavian home

A lovely creative family home in Varberg, Sweden

Friday, 22 May 2015

I'm so excited about today's home tour. I think it's actually the biggest tour I've ever shown (24 pics!! I just couldn't narrow it down, I love every inch of it). The house belongs to one of my favourite Swedish bloggers / photographers -  Kristin Lagerkvist, her husband and three children in Varberg, Sweden. They've just taken the difficult decision to put the house on the market  - woah?! But I'm told they're moving into their dream home (I see another home tour coming up...). Kristin sees her space as her playground and loves to decorate, re-arrange and add flee market finds. She takes inspiration from social media, children, friends and nature and is also inspired by artists' homes. Let's take a look (you might need a pot of tea for this one....). 

Photography: Kristin Lagerkvist For sale through FastighetsbyrÄ

Relaxed, unique, imaginative. Simply lovely.That's what I think, how about you?

A little note on items in the home: The bedroom is painted in Lady Pure Color S7010 – B30. They were after a light Scandinavian look in the kitchen but didn't want to go white so they chose beech as an alternative. The Moroccan tiles are Jazz in yellow, green and blue tones. The coffee table in the sitting room is Noguchi, with a bumling light in brass. Try etsy, ebay, Bukowski and Lauritz for vintage items.

More lovely homes owned by creatives (in case you're in the mood!) include a danish apartment of an artist, a colourful melbourne home, and a striking black and white Danish space. Love this converted artist studio in Copenhagen too.

This weekend I'm holding a really exciting give-away, open to everyone....make sure you stop by to check it out!

Time for the weekend - yaaaay! have a wonderful couple of days! 

Duvet day in this monochrome bedroom?

Thursday, 21 May 2015

Hello! I must say it's great to be back at my desk this morning after the madness of a three day photo shoot (I do have some lovely memories though- like this incredible view down to a Danish beach - Denmark is just stunning). I'd also love to have a duvet day and still be snuggling up in bed, I'm so tired! Which is probably why I was drawn to this incredible bedroom today! It has everything I could possibly need - calm dark grey and white colour scheme, soft linen bedding, open and closed storage (I love these), a work corner bathed in sunlight and a stack of magazines. Oh yes, transport me there now! Could you take a duvet day here?




I would sleep so well in this room, how about you?! Zzzzzzzz

A few items I know and love:  Hektar reading lamps, white linen bedding. I like this moss knit throw. HAY light, this clothes rail is similar, String shelving system. I like these hooks. Try Farrow & Ball Down Pipe for a similar dark grey wall and I recently painted my floor in Strong White, which comes out a beautiful pale grey.

Other bedroom's I would sleep easy in include Holly Marder's lovely space in neutrals and Tine K's calm Danish room. I'd also quite like a night here, how about you?! You can see my complete archive of bedrooms here (scroll down past the first one as it it will be the one in this post)- warning, it might make you feel like you want to go back to bed (or at least revamp your entire boudoir!). 

More lovely white and grey home inspiration here (Swedish) and here (Finnish). 

Have a lovely day!
