Kitchen perfection

One of our favourite Swedish interior bloggers, Johanna Bradford, has done it again - she's created an absolutely dreamy kitchen in her 1920's home in Borås, Sweden. She has moved several times over the past few years and we've loved following her designing and renovating all her homes. You can see a post we did on her previous home here

We are drooling over the marble butler sink teamed with raw brass details. Another favourite part is the stunning emerald green and cream tiles covering the splash back and fan, such a great idea to tile in the fan in that way! Finally, that oven from Ilve is a real stunner, the mix of clean stainless steel and warm brass is just perfection

Johanna is now also making her passion for kitchen design into a business called Cupboards & Goods and we can't wait for it to properly launch!

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.

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

Shades of Blue

Don't you just love the classic Swedish tiled fireplaces, this pale blue one is such a lovely addition to this room!

This sweet Stockholm home has plenty of really nice classic features. The kitchen, which has clearly been newly renovated, has been carefully done so to stay true to the original history and design of the space. The pine floorboards which has been sanded down and to expose the natural wood goes beautifully with the pale grey painted woodworks, seen on the window frames and doorways. It's a shame the original radiators are no longer there, they would have been the perfect cherry on top in this stunning home

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.
