Looking for an inexpensive way to create an impactful and contemporary library wall? Then take note of this great idea.

There are several cheap options of metal shelves on the market for achieving this look. However the most inexpensive of them all has to be be IKEA's Hyllis, which retails at only £10.

Mixing this industrial plain metal shelving with lux furnishings such as Persian rugs and a leather Chesterfield creates a nice juxtapositioning and makes the room feel balanced. Of course, some great shelf-styling is absolutely necessary to pull this look off!

Grandeur

This grand Swedish home is really something special! The windows, the decorative ceiling, the ornate fireplaces - simply put just stunning. We are big fans of the green shade on the walls by Farrow and Ball which looks beautiful in both day and evening light.

We've spotted a lot of gorgeous Svenskt Tenn furniture in this apartment - one of our favourite Swedish heritage brands - which works so well with this grand space.

A sense of space in a small home

This sweet little apartment in Gothenburg has really succeeded in making compact living feeling spacious. The green-blue wall colour creates a sense of space and the rattan and naked wood makes for a calm feel - and of course plenty of greenery and plants help add freshness to the home. A winning combo!

High in the sky

There is something so lovely about a top floor apartment - the feeling of being high up in the sky and having a constant stream of light flooding in!

Can't you just imagine having your weekend breakfasts here with the balcony door open, a cup of coffee in your hand reading the paper?

Cosy and light

A trend we've seen emerging in Sweden recently is beautifully painted woodworks – such as doors, skirting and window frames. This works particularly well in older homes as they have plenty of period features such as wooden clad wall panels. To achieve this look it's important to pick a pale muted tone that works well with your furniture and decor. Unlike the Brits the Scandinavians don't really use their curtains much and this style means you can skip curtains all together. Venetian blind has been fitted in the bedroom windows which is a good way of getting some privacy without taking anything away from the window detailing.
