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.

Characterful living

We are so into the home of Elin Alemdar, founder of Stylein. With consistent earthy tones complimented by a variety of luscious greenery, the space is airy but characterful too. A fine example of a stylish living space put together with integrity.

Pretty Pastels

This lovely pastel dream in Stockholm has a colour palette that creates calm and tranquil home environment. This apartment has been seen across plenty of Swedish interior blogs over the past couple weeks and we spotted it at one of our favourite blogs Trendeser.se.

The dusty pink sofa, off-white walls teamed with the dove blue and pale marble grey kitchen makes for a perfect combo.

Perfection

This stunning flat has been styled by the people behind Dusty Deco, an amazing interior shop in Stockholm. It's clear that a lot of thought has been put into the design and colour scheme of this space. We love the muted greys and dusty pinks as well as the use of natural materials such as linen and wood.

Stockholm Dream house

This enormous house in area of Djursholm, Stockholm is the perfect sanctuary in the city. This eclectic and charming abode is the home of Marie-Louise Sjögren, art buyer at H&M, and her family. The decor incorporates a lot of lovely pieces from the Swedish heritage brand, and one of our personal favourites, Svenskt Tenn.

At fist glance, the decor of this home might not seem like your typical scaled back Nordic aesthetic, however there are actually a lot of Scandinavian pieces here. This place is really one of a kind, and it is one lucky family that get to call this house their home
