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!


A fabulous home in a former garage

I hope you've had a lovely few days? I'm having a great time in London and looking forward to some down time today with my girls before heading back to Sweden on Wednesday. How about you? Doesn't this time of year fill you with the need to bring colour into the home? I'm really feeling the yellows, blues, greens and pinks! This converted garage space featured in the February edition of Elle Decoration UK (I've just bought the May edition and it's fab) found via one of my all time favourite blogs SF Girl By Bay is so wonderful it makes my spring heart sing!

There's such a personal stamp to this incredible home. I'm loving the Tom Dixon copper shade lamps customised with neon pink chords, fantastic wood burning stoves and the black rug with the large floral print. How about you?

What a cool home!

For more colour inspiration I love this brightly coloured Dutch home, this stunning vintage inspired home of a Melbourne illustrator, and a lovely Skåne home with pops of green.

Have a wonderful day!
