Artwork is very important in home decor. One of the things that always catch my eye in the many Scandinavian homes that I post is that they’re always filled with beautiful art. And now we can all get an amazing Nordic-inspired gallery wall! Desenio is a Swedish webshop that offers amazing prints and posters with a real Nordic vibe. The prints are designed by their own team but they also work with artists from all over the world. Desenio offers everything from photography to graphic prints so there is a print for everyone. And I have some very good news for you: together with Desenio I can offer you 25% off on all prints and posters (just scroll down for all the info).
Sometimes in these dark winter months all you want is a little light. This apartment in Stockholm is styled by Josefin Hååg and it’s bright in every room. The home is completely decorated in white, grey and black tones which gives the apartment a very serene atmosphere. Perfect if you love light homes, there’s definitely no winter gloom in here!
An all-white look for the newest interior project by Laura Seppänen Design Agency. The 2-bedroom apartment in Helsinki belongs to head of Cosmopolitan Finland Stina Mäntyniemi. Stina wanted a clean look for her apartment. No rugs, curtains and a monochrome color palette. There was one must have piece for her interior – the Bertoia chair. I love the look of this apartment, it’s clean and fresh without looking cold. A perfect Scandinavian look.
I’m thinking about taking a trip to Copenhagen in the upcoming weeks so it’s very good timing that I saw these images of restaurant Italy. The restaurant is designed by Norm Architects and it has a beautiful blend of Scandinavian design and Italian spirit. The light colors and wooden furniture are given an extra pop by that beautiful blue tone that they’ve used throughout the restaurant. So beautiful and it’s very possible that I’m going to have an amazing Italian dish at restaurant Italy when I’m in town.
Getting into the weekend I’m giving you this lovely Scandinavian home to dream off. The apartment still has its orginal 1920s features such as herringbone floors, panel doors and stucco. The home is beautifully decorated with many amazing Scandinavian brands and stunning artwork. Like many Scandinavian homes it’s a very light home but the decorations make it extremely cozy. If this were my home, I might never leave it!
When you have been blogging for a few years like I have, it’s quite possibile that you find homes that you’ve featured before only differently styled. I like to browse (Scandinavian) real estate sites and I recognized this studio apartment in Gothenburg immediately. I have posted this studio a year ago and even though the style hasn’t changed dramatically it’s still nice to see the space with slightly different decor. This time the studio is styled in some warmer tones which suits the season very well. The studio has lots of natural elements such as the plants, wooden furniture and the IKEA Viktigt chair suits this space very well (unfortunately it’s no longer for sale). Which style do you prefer? This one or the summer version?
I just can’t get enough of attic apartments. I especially can’t get enough of attic apartments with amazing design and original features, which is the case in this Stockholm apartment. The exposed beams throughout the living space give this attic apartment some extra character. Beside that the space is styled to perfection with Scandinavian design pieces and it’s packed with art. This apartment looks so incredibly cozy, I want to have it!
You can’t go very wrong with using black in interior design. Yet, painting your trim black is perhaps a bit daring for some people. This apartment in a former straw hat factory in Stockholm shows that it looks really elegant, cool and a bit dramatic. They’ve painted the window frames and wall moldings black giving the spaces a great contrast with the white walls. This lovely Scandinavian apartment is a bit more daring than the usual Scandi space, but oh so beautiful!
I love this Scandinavian home filled with artwork, Scandinavian design classics and the bright but cozy atmosphere. But for me the best part is the bedroom, which is very large (jealous!) and it is not only used for sleeping but also for working. It must be great to have such a large bedroom to be able to put in a spacious work area. By using String shelves you create a place to store your books without a chunky bookcase. The rug under the desk in combination with the bookshelves define the ‘workspace’ in the bedroom. It’s very simple, but a very effective way of dividing a space. Beautiful how light and open they’ve kept this home without losing any coziness.
I love an attic apartment. I know slanted ceilings aren’t always very practical but it does give the space some natural coziness. This apartment in Stockholm just came on the market through ESNY and it’s a stunner. The space is decorated in shades of white, grey and black like many Scandinavian spaces. But the neutral color palette gets some warmth and personal touches by using wood, plants and a lot of artwork. Gosh I love Scandinavian homes, don’t you?
