Is it just me, or is the week moving at an alarming rate? If you feel like taking a breather with me, come and enjoy this beautiful Gothenburg home for a moment! It belongs to Swedish graphic designer, artist and photographer Cecilia Hedin (see her former home here), sambo (meaning ‘live-in partner’) Johan, their baby Björn and dog Bertil. Built in the 1920s, every room has been painted in a different colour – from a deep, luxurious green to soft blues and warm greige and they’ve also made use of some fabulous wallpaper, and yet there’s a wonderful flow to the space. Cecilia’s friends Alice Johansson and Johanna Bradford paid a visit and snapped these lovely pics. Välkommen in!

Kitchen cabinets painted in NORDSJÖ simplicity greige and wall panels in the same shade by 40% lighter. 
A circular table and series of Mogensen J39 chairs are surrounded by geraniums for a wonderful ‘winter garden’ feel! 

This is the kind of ‘snug’ you can imagine the family spending the lion’s share of their time in. I love the classic Jetson chair and indoor climber. And that rustic wood wall adds so much character to the space too, don’t you think?!

Sitting room painted in Farrow & Ball Oval Room Blue

This Blackthorne wallpaper by William Morris is so pretty!

Bannisters painted in Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell
Source vintage botanical prints like these here*.
This lovely desk area reminds me a lot of the home office in their former apartment. The walls have been decorated in luxurious yet calm Chicken Coop by Alcro. Source a vintage architect’s desk like this one here*

Björn’s room has been partly decorated in Jimmy Cricket Woodland wallpaper in charcoal.

So fun with the vintage gymnastics equipment (source similar here*), don’t you think?! Although not vintage, my daughter has a set of wooden gymnastics rings in her room and she absolutely loves them – she even gets ready for bed hanging upside down (you can imagine how long that takes *rolls eyes*!)! Rattan lounge chair from Tine K Home.

If I was merely considering adding more colour to my home before, I’m fully committed after seeing these pictures. It’s also amazing how much the right wallpaper can transform a room too – Björn’s room is just lovely!
Are you tempted to add more colour / wallpaper to your home too?
If you love Cecilia’s home you’ll also love her online shop where she sells her photography, art and badges (the latter of which remind me a little of our time in the Lake District, England as a child – my sister had a ton of badges showing all the fells she’d conquered – me, not so many!).  
Other inspiring Swedish homes with plenty of colour and pattern include Johanna Bradford’s former home, an eclectic 19th century Swedish house and snapshots from Ida’s vintage-inspired home in Dalarna. Oh and there’s actually an entire archive dedicated to ‘decorating with wallpaper‘ too! 
Do you have a favourite wallpaper?
Ha så bra!
