Scandinavia in Ontario

When we first saw this stunning home on Remodelista we immediately thought it must be located in Scandinavia. It has a classic Swedish tiled fireplace (kakelugn in Swedish) and the home is full of Scandinavian design pieces. The house is actually located in Ontario, Canada and belongs to John and Juli Baker, founders of interior concept store Mjölk selling Scandinavian and Japanese pieces.

The couple had the 200 year old kakelugn sent from Sweden and reassembled in their home tile by tile, you can read more about it here in the Mjölks journal.

Among the beautiful furniture we can spot a Arne Jackobsen sofa, a classic Märta Måås-Fjetterström rug, Hans Wegner chairs and a few pieces from Svenskt Tenn and Josef Frank. We also have to mention the stunning antique solid marble bath tub from an old spa in Portugal, that must have come with a hefty shipping fee!

Green, green, green...

The light in this is stunning Stockholm apartment is so dreamy. The pale sage green wall colour really complements the diffused light as well as enhanes the beautiful wall panels.

The layout is great as it gives you that open plan feeling but still has a bit of separation between the rooms – and a built in bookcase wall is always a winning concept in our books!

We are not quite sure what to think about the wall mounted greenery in the dining room, is it pretty cool or a bit too much?! What do you think?

Grandeur

Imagine waking up in this grand bedroom every morning? It would definitely make those grey Monday mornings a bit less mundane. This flat in Gothenburg is full of stunning original turn of the century features which are to die for. The panelling in the bedroom is beautifully enhanced by the stunning warm grey paint colour. Adding to the grand decor is the the lovely original star parquet flooring which luckily has been preserved in this room.

A musicians home

Musician Nina Persson (best known from The Cardigans) lives in a very stylish apartment in Malmö, Sweden. It is full of personality and unique objects creating a homely yet stylish feel.

We love the dusty pastel colour palette which works wonderfully in this turn of the century space. One of our favourite rooms is the sage green sleek kitchen with juxtaposing vintage table and matching Thonet chairs - perfection.

Petrol and Mustard

We love the colour combinations of this Swedish home, the petrol blue walls and mustard sofa is a perfect Autumnal combo!

The curved walls of the living room adds a stately feel to the space but we can imagine it makes it quite tricky to decorate. What's your favourite part of this home?

A Swedish farmhouse dream

This beautiful farmhouse in the Swedish country side is currently up for sale through Historiska Hem. If you are up for relocating deep into the Swedish forest then this should be right up your street!

We love how the current owners have carefully renovated and preserved the original charm of the house. The dining room with all its beautiful mullioned windows is really something special! You can see more images of the home here

Scandinavian simplicity in Brooklyn

This beautiful place is the home of uber cool Swedish entrepreneur Babba Riviera and her husband Carl. Their apartment in Brooklyn hits the perfect mix of Scandinavian simplicity with a bit of New York attitude.

You can see all the images and read the interview with her here, on Swedish Elle Decorations's website

One of our favourite features in this space is the custom built drinks cabinet just off the kitchen & dining space, it matches the dining furniture perfectly and utilises an otherwise dead space in this room. 10 out of 10!
