A calm white Swedish home

Good morning and hello September! I read somewhere that September is meant to be the most relaxing month of the year. So let's put that to the test! Today's home tour is the picture of calm. It's been decorated in white throughout with just a touch of black and green throughout to create the perfect balance. A great way to start a relaxing month don't you think?!

I had a long chat with a friend last night about whether she should paint her bedroom floor light grey or grey 'wash it'  (yes, we take these things very seriously!). Looking at this home, I think I know the answer. What do you think?

Love, love love the Pia Wallén Cross Blanket as seen in the bedroom.

Some exciting news: being British you can imagine how much I love my tea. I'm therefore delighted to welcome new sponsor LØv Organic, producers of the most delicious, refreshing and soothing organic tea (did I also mention the packaging is beautiful?!). So exciting!  This September they're holding a 'LØv is' campaign and the lovely LØv Organic team are offering us all 15% off with code SCANDINAVIAN. Yay! Since it's the 'relaxing' month I'm going for LØv is Pure and the LØv is Zen variety (although I also have a bit of a penchant for Ginger-Lemon green tea). How about you?  You can keep up to date with the latest Løv Organics blends on Facebook and their international newsletter.

Oh and another note Kids Brand Store are celebrating their 3 year jubileum with 15% off everything (including my favourites Noa Noa, Molo and ChillNorway) for the next three days. Just thought you might want to know...see you there!!

Have a wonderful start to the week!



Fabulous bright and zesty inspiration from Inside Out

I have several favourite interior magazines which I've followed for years but lately I've started to branch out a little. All the way to Australia in fact. Here are some pictures from the recently launched September issue of Inside Out magazine.  I think they give you a great idea of the kind of fabulous contemporary spaces the team at Inside Out find. Whether it's the bright zesty colours, the odd designer pieces or simply the cool take on the latest design trends and of course the cute dog, I'm all over Brunswick House, designed by Clare Cousins Architects. Perfect inspiration for the weekend don't you think?

Do you know what? I absolutely love a statement splash of yellow, it makes such a great impact! I love the way the yellow geometric prints on the wall are balanced by a bunch of bananas on the table too, very cool styling by Marsha Golemac!

Is there anything that stands out to you or that you love about these spaces?

Very brief I spy: Hay cushion in yellow, Muuto The Dots hooks, Thonet 214 chairs around the dining table, and the Forså chrome desk light from IKEA.

I hope you have a really great weekend, see you Monday!


A Malmö home teeming with design classics

Some weeks I struggle to find beautiful Scandinavian inspired home tours to share. Other weeks they seem to fall into my lap. This week is definitely the latter - I'm so excited by the three posts I've shared already this week (here, here and here), do you find the same when you're blogging?! Today I've found another exciting space! This apartment is based here in Malmö, Sweden (who I might add, qualified for Champions League last night - amazing! Heja Malmö!). The space is teeming with real design classics (more of which below) and the pink peonies add just the right amount of colour to the otherwise monochrome space. Lovely!

So - the design classics I was talking about. I spy the Knoll Diamond arm chair, Eames DSW chairs and Tom Dixon Copper Shade light in the sitting room / dining area. By Lassen Kubus Bowl and Tom Ford coffee table book on the side table. Design House Stockholm Work Light and CH24 Wishbone chairs in the kitchen. Er, what else? Can you see anything I've missed?  Feel free to add anything you love in the comment section below!

For a beautiful vase I'm loving the Klong Äng right now. It recently won best interior accessory in the Elle Decoration Swedish Design Awards 2014. It's top of my birthday wishlist!

Have a lovely day!
