Well hello there. How was your weekend? Sunday was a big day in the My Scandinavian Home household – it was the man’s birthday! If there’s one thing he loves it’s the sea, so we treated him for brunch at Bjärreds Saltsjöbad out on the end of a 600 metre long pier (pic here!) before heading to see one of his favourite Swedish singers Lise Ekdahl in concert (Vem vet is one of her most famous songs – must have a listen if you get a mo!). She was wonderful! Right now I’m on a bit of a white interior streak here on the blog, and it seems it’s set to continue ( I think when you see this beautiful apartment in Linnéstaden, Gothenburg you’ll understand why!). The vast swathes of white walls and light wood floors are broken up by a mix of Scandinavian design and vintage pieces in subtle touches of black, gold and cognac, allowing the magnificent architecture and feeling of space to take centre stage. How I’d love to be padding around here this morning, how about you?!
No, you weren’t mistaken – yes, this apartment is for sale! Fancy a move to Gothenburg?! Race you there….
Get the look: dining area – Bentwood chairs, these clay plant pots are similar. Bedroom – vintage kimonos look lovely hung on the bedroom wall (and as a cover up over a simple outfit of course!), light grey linen throw.
I’ve seen the white pendant in the bedroom so many times before but can’t for the life of me remember where this morning – can anyone help? Also any tips on that fab white bean bag?
Have a wonderful start to the week!
PS I was so happy to see My Scandinavian Home instagram feed mentioned in Vanity Fair (Italy) this weekend, it’s made my week and it hasn’t even started – thank you!
