A stunning industrial-style home in Lund, Sweden

Tuesday, 24 November 2015

Lund is a lovely old university town a few kilometers North East of Malmö. It was actually the first place I touched down in the south of sweden when I came to visit a friend many moons ago.  In the centre of town, directly behind the station stands this lovely gem of a house built in the 1800s and belonging to Annette and Michael. You won't be surprised to hear they both work in the interiors world. The fabulous home is full of vintage, antique finds, designer pieces and the odd item from IKEA and set against a backdrop of beautiful black stained wood flooring and white walls (don't miss the original ceramic wainscoting!). All in all a stunning home, don't you think?!

I think my favourite room of all is the bathroom with that checquered floor and glass cabinet - what a lovely place to store towels, soaps and other items?!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Items I know and love: pick up Louis Poulsen workshop pendants here, this vintage plan chest is similar,  Thonet chairs (15% off with code MYSCAN) and Ant chair , this IKEA trolley is similar, OMAR stainless steel shelves and BEKVÄM foot stoolSMEG fridge. Tulip armchair chair (in white), Trisse coffee tables,  Ghost sofa.

Get the look with paint: Wimbourne whiteRailings and Pitch Black by Farrow & Ball are similar.

Other fab homes with a similar signature style include Swedish stylist queen Lotta Agaton's previous apartment and this country home in Skåne

An almost mid week post wouldn't be the same without helping us dream of dropping it all and escaping to a remote cabin - I think this log cabin overlooking a fjord in the Faroe Islands fits the bill, don't you?!

Have a lovely day!

Back to bed on a Monday....dreamy bedroom inspiration!

Monday, 23 November 2015

Hello Monday! I hope you had a great weekend? We headed up to the cottage on Saturday and woke up to a foot of snow! You can just imagine how excited the girls were (the man on the other hand, spent an hour shoveling out the car)! Did you get snow where you are too? It's sooo chilly outside that after packing my girls off to nursery in snow suits what I really wanted to do was go back to bed with a box set and a slice of this! But instead, I'll settle for drooling over this dreamy bedding by Crisp Sheets. Imagine having a bedroom like this? I'm not sure I'd ever get out of bed!

Crisp sheets. Found via TDC.

The items: Cozy plaid / Secret Garden duvet cover / Weekend lover duvet set / Light as a feather duvet set. Love the 'dots' bedding too. Do you have a favourite?

Other bedding I love: cosy organic wool blanket and a mega chunky knit blanket (could have done with these at the cottage this weekend BRRRRR!). This fab black and white Moroccan wool bed throw with pom poms. And handmade fresh white bed linen. Heaven!

More beautiful bedroom inspiration for 'back to bed Monday' include the calm Danish boudoir of Tine K Home owner, a Swedish bedroom in neutrals, and if you have a small bedroom - this monochrome Belgium space offers some great ideas.

Back to bed anyone?

Have a great start to the week!

PS this is not a sponsored post, I just love the bedding!
