Originally from London, I get so excited when I come across a home from the Big Smoke – and even more so when it’s really lovely! Owned by Louis Hagen Hall and Catherine Verna Bentley – the creative duo behind architecture and interior design practice Bentley Hagen Hall – the super charming space is filled with unique treasures, mid-century pieces, plants and the most wonderful light (beautifully captured by India Hobson for Haarkon). Let’s take a peek…
I absolutely love this space – it’s kind of homely and bohemian but with a hint of Scandinavian modern. I wasn’t surprised to see that one of the pair has Norwegian heritage.
Is there anything you love in particular about this space?
Take a look at a load more pictures and read more about this beautiful home here.
If you’re after a similar look in your own home a few of these items will put you in good stead (unless of course you’re UK based and can draft in the help from Bentley Hagen Hall– now wouldn’t that be wonderful?!): pick up a mid-century side-cabinet here, I love these Moroccan rugs. Source a vintage architect’s swivel chair here, this white sheepskin is similar to the one on the windowsill.
I’m guessing I’m not alone in wondering where the brass pendant ceiling light is from – any ideas? UPDATE: This is the CVL Saturn brass pendant light and was sold by John Lewis a few years back but seems like it’s no longer available (thank you Anon.).
If you love this home, you’ll also like foodie Anna Jones’ home in the same neck of the woods – so fab!
And finally – I am thrilled to see My Scandinavian Home has been selected as a semi-finalist in the first ever Domino magazine design awards in the category ‘Best International Design Blog’ yaaaay! It’s all happening here if you fancy casting your vote (it only takes a second and I’d be so so happy!).
Have a lovely day!
PS looking to save your pennies this autumn?! The Swedish philosophy of Lagom is your answer (so says this piece in the Readers Digest – they might just have read it somewhere…?!).
PPS happy Diwali to all my Hindu friends out there!
