A beautiful Gothenburg home with a hint of English style

Located in Gothenburg, Sweden, this home belongs to Cattis, the blogger behind Another Side Of This Life, her husband Robert and daughter Stella and has been beautifully captured by Lovely Life. I can spot the Swedish style (it's in Gothenburg after all) but their's a definite English stamp to it too, which is probably why it resonates with me so much. Believe it or not it's actually an apartment rather than a house!

I love the touches of green (dark green has recently the accent colour in my sitting room thanks to my 1940's scissor lamp), it such a perfect colour for spring, For more green-in-the-home inspiration you might want to check out this very cool Skåne home, this kitchen with a green floor, and this post on adding a touch of green to your home. Green day....

Have a wonderful day!



A cool black and white Swedish apartment

After all the colours this week it's time for something a little more neutral don't you think?! So it's back to basics today with a black and white one room Gothenburg apartment. Despite the size the owner has created distinct living areas and used one colour sceme through out which makes the space appear larger than it is. I immediately noticed the textured wall (love) and also how well the TV fits into the room. I usually avoid showing TV's as they're not cool, but this one has such a natural fit to the room...

I'm also loving the art photography. The poster above the bed is from Moderna Museet but sadly they don't have a web shop. For other art photography try Eye Poetry for cool city scapes and The Print Atelier for prints by a whole host of photographers.

More fab monochrome home inspiration here, here and here. Oh and even children's room's in black and white here and here.

What's your take on black and white? Do you like this apartment?

We're heading back to Sweden this afternoon, thank you London for a wonderful week! I wish I had more time as I didn't even make it around my favourite design shops. HUMPH. Great excuse to come back though.....

Have a lovely day!


A Danish kitchen in pretty pastels

When it comes to Scandinavian style decorating people tend to go for the all white look, monochrome, dark moody hues, pastels or bold brights. Do you have a penchant for one of these? In my home I tend to veer towards black, white and pastels although I do sometimes wish I liked bold brights! This Danish kitchen in the home of Julie and her daughter spotted on Boligciousblog has ramped up the feminine style with an entirely pastel kitchen. Could you go for a look like this?

The kitchen is from Tvis and available in a tonne of different colours. The owner is clearly a fan of Muuto too (who isn't?!) as I spot the E27 pendant light, nerd chair and bar stool and the mini stacked shelves are similar. I don't recognise the pattern on the wall - is it painted or have they put up wall paper? The Ferm Living Harlequin wallpaper is fairly similar.

For more pastel inspiration (it's easter after all!) check out this romantic Swedish home, a light and airy Dutch house this stunning sitting room in the home of a Danish designer.

Have a lovely day!
