my scandinavian home

A serene Norwegian home on a hill

Thursday, 27 August 2015

I follow a lot of blogs, I'm talking ridiculous numbers (here's a list covering a few of them, and it doesn't even include the ones I come across through Pinterest, Instagram, my cat etc!). I like to call this (eh hem) research. They're all fabulous in their own way, but I truly admire blogs who take new, inspiring pictures of their homes daily. Norwegian blogger Nina Holst is one of these. Not only does she have impeccable style, she's also a great photographer - which makes for perfect bloggage over at Stylizimo.  I'm sure you're a regular follower already (at least of her wonderful IG gallery)- but let's just sit back and admire her beautiful Norwegian home on a hill (and that view) for another minute....

I love the black, white and light cognac combination, it's so serene - and that view from the terrace? Wow!

Is there anything you love in particular about this home?

Items I know and love: Dining area: wishbone chairs, Kubus candleholder, and Kubus bowl in grey, Eames House Bird. Sitting room: Saxe chair By Lassen, painting by Nina. Office: Alex drawer unit, Le Sac paper bag. Bedroom: wishbone chair, Louis Poulsen AJ table lamp.
 
Other wonderful home tours include the home of a Norwegian blogger, the home of a Swedish food blogger and the happy home of a Dutch blogger.

Have a lovely day! 



Singing the blues in a Swedish space

Wednesday, 26 August 2015

Blue is stealing the show this year (I'm especially loving this blue / black outfit for autumn - could it be because that was the colour of my school uniform?!). And the kitchen in this Swedish apartment is fab  - I'm not sure if it's the combination of deep blue with aqua, the leather handles, the grey splashback, light marble work surface or simply everything? It really sets the tone for the rest of the the home too (loving the cluster light, touches of mid-century and the oh so light and airy home office). Let's take a tour...












Entrance

This home has been styled for sale so it's perhaps a little spartan -but the beautiful bones are there (those windows...), imagine what you could do with it?

The light grey floor in the study looks fairly similar to the floor in my bedroom (painted with 'strong white'). I like the way they've painted the skirting boards in the same colour. It also ties the room with the rest of the home (they've used the same colour on the doors and hallway floor).  I do love a light grey and white combo!

If you're in the mood for more blue inspiration - I'm also loving this elegant blue kitchen in a Brooklyn home and these blue kitchens - in fact, there's an entire archive dedicated to the colour  (skip the first home as it will be this one). Are you a fan of blue?
 
It's another extremely early start for me today - one of my friends calls them  'double coffee mornings' .... and as I look out of the train window I'm dreaming of a slow morning back at home with coffee gently brewing on the stove (or perhaps I could be in this Gotland summer home or this pretty swedish cottage or infact, any summer cottage for that matter!). Don't you love mornings like those?

Have a lovely day!
