A Swedish apartment with a mid-century touch

I do love a touch of mid-century in a home. And this space in Gothenburg has blended it in with some contemporary Scandinavian pieces so incredibly well. Just look at that mid-century cabinet paired with a Hay strap mirror and brass lamp next to a set of String system shelving. What a great combination!







Stadshem

Lauritz and Liveauctioneers are both great places to pick up a mid-century piece. For more mid-century inspiration I love this, this and this home tour (in case you missed them).

I think this is the third time this week we've seen a black and white kitchen - your style or not? For some alternative kitchen inspiration I have over 1300 beautiful kitchen and dining spaces (yes really! Sign of a slight Pinterest addiction?!) hoarded on my Kitchen Pinterest board.

And there's that wonderful cross blanket again. This time draped over a very cool vintage leather sofa.

Thank you so much to Marie Claire Maison for including me in a list of recommended interior blogs from around the world - what a true honour! Happy Friday to the team!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend (any great plans?) and see you Monday! 


The Swedish barn conversion

Last November I featured a fantastic Swedish barn conversion here. I still dream about this home today which is why I was extremely excited to discover more beautiful images of the space shot by Romain Ricard. The yellow in the kitchen makes a wonderful twist on the black and white kitchen we saw yesterday don't you think? And I LOVE that bedroom, so beautiful! Could you sleep there?!

This home seriously makes me want to up sticks and move to the Swedish countryside, how about you?!

The oh so beautiful bedroom has prompted my new product pick of the week today. As you know I'm a big fan of Scandinavian design classics and frequently highlight beautiful chairs. lights, and accessories. But one Scandinavian classic I haven't mentioned are the luxury beds by Hästens. For those of you not familiar with the Swedish brand, Hästens is a company steeped in history having 'been crafting sleep since 1852'. And they're not kidding. Each bed is completely handmade using all natural materials and takes around 160 hours to complete! I've got my eye on the limited edition Stockholm White. Imagine the nights sleep? Bliss! A well deserved product pick of the week!

I'm working from a cafe by the sea today and it's pouring with rain outside - so cosy!

Have a lovely day - rain or shine!



A very cool black and white Swedish home

This is your original white and black contemporary Scandinavian home tour. White (or light wood) floors and walls. black accessories, a yellow accent colour and a really fantastic black and white kitchen. What's not to love?!

A few items I know and love: Hay DLM side table in yellow, I love this black and white print and others here, Pia Wallén cross blanket. Panton chair dS in the kitchen, Black and white striped basket, and Ferm Living half moon basket. Fab fancy finger cushion / pillow by Lucky boy Sunday.

Could you live here?

In this home they've chosen a yellow accent colour and stuck to white walls. However, Swedish paint company Nordsjö announced their colour of the year 2015 yesterday. Which is (drum roll please...) Copper orange. What do you think? Can you see yourself using this hue in your home next year?

Before I dash off  I just want to say a a big warm welcome to all new readers. I hope you like the daily home tours and find some inspiration for your own home! We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below! 

Have a lovely day!
