A very cool Toronto apartment

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? Did you get a chance to enter the give-away to win the t'shirt soft bed linen yet? This fabulous Victorian Toronto apartment belongs to John Baker and Juli Daoust and is located directly above their beautiful shop Mjölk (meaning 'milk' in Swedish). -how's that for a commute?! You can definitely see John and Juli's love of all things Scandinavian and Japanese shining through and I also like the brown accents they've used throughout. I once featured their cottage on here which is equally beautiful but in a different way.

*sigh* such a perfect way to brighten up a Monday morning don't you think? Is there anything you love in particular about this space?

I'm all over that wall of dried wild flowers (could this image be from their shop?), I wonder if this can be re-created as a DIY project? It would be so fun for spring.

By the way, I came across a competition over at FinnStyle at the weekend asking people to choose which Marimekko pattern they like the most. They're now down to the final four and would love some help choosing the winner, one lucky participant could win a 100 dollar gift card for their efforts (please let it be me....or you...or me....!)

Have a lovely Monday!

PS Thank you to Miss Moss and Dwell for the inspiration. 

Splashes of yellow with pretty pastels

There's no denying that Muuto is one of my favourite Nordic brands. They are always spot on with the latest trends, and I love the designs and colours. This selection of images were styled for Muuto by my neighbour's company All The Way To Paris (ATWTP) (you can see my neighbour Petra's beautiful former home here). I'd like a new house just so that I can buy the huge pink Muuto sofa (do you think my husband would agree to that?!).

For more pastel inspiration you could try my 'decorating with pastels label'....I love pale pink with yellow it's such a great way to update the home for spring don't you think?

For other homes with splashes of yellow (the colour de jour it seems) you might want to check out this and this home.

Would you dare go for a bold sofa?

Have a lovely day!

A Malmö home with a touch of brass

I do love to come across homes from here in Southern Sweden. This one is currently for sale through Bo-laget (come and join the Malmö massive!). Decorated in monochrome tones the apartment is a real case of spot the designer piece....with a few real favourites of mine too!

Bo-laget via 79 ideas

I spy the Eames DSR chairs in black (15% off with MYSCAN), Wishbone chair, Tom Dixon bronze copper Shade light, Knoll diamond armchair (both on sale! :)

The apartment itself has beautiful bones, and although I live in a house I often dream about moving into one of the beautiful old apartments inthe centre of town (is the grass always greener?!).

Other beautiful homes from Bo-laget here, here and here. Which one is your favourite?

Have a wonderful weekend! 

Saturday wall space inspiration

Hello Saturday. A rare weekend post from me! For some reason I was wide awake early this morning which was a real luxury as the house was so quiet! So I made myself a big cup of fresh coffee on the stove and had a little play on Pinterest (of course!). Here's my Saturday morning find. A very cool print by one of my favourite Swedish designers Therese Sennerholt.

I have one of her limited edition prints in my sitting room and never tire of it. Do you have anything by her?

I recently came across this fab store The Print Atelier too which is great for photographic art. I'm on it!

Have a lovely weekend and see you Monday!

PS Don't forget to enter the give-away....

The 2014 romantic pastel home

It seems like pastels are back in a big way for 2014. My personal take is 'pastels with a romantic touch'. I came across these inspirational images from H&M Home and think they really hit the mark.  Do you have an H&M home near you? We don't have one in Southern Sweden sadly but there's one over the bridge in Copenhagen so I always take the time to stop by when I'm in town. Last time I picked up this moss coloured knit throw for my bedroom. Seeing these pictures make me feel perhaps it's time for another visit?!

If you fancy a little more pastel inspiration I love this Swedish home and this home of a French fashion designer.

Are you a pastel person? I'm definitely more pastels then bold colours although I do sometimes think I should throw in an element of surprise like a bright yellow chair!

Incidentally this is not a sponsored post, I just happen to love the H&M Home lifestyle images, how about you?!

Have a lovely day!

The beautiful apartment of a Swedish interior designer

Hej du! I'm blogging from further up the coast today in Höganäs (home to Lily & Oscar (remember this beautiful cottage?) and Magasin 36 which I fully intend on visiting!). But before I do I had to share this incredible home with you which is currently for sale. It's owned by Swedish interior designer Elin Kickén (and I've heard Instagram extroadinaire (@elinkicken) and teeming with fabulous pieces. Take a peek....

Elin Kicken, Vastenhem via Husligheter and Stil Inspiration with thanks. 
I love her style, how about you?

I spy (where to start?!!) - well you could do well to start at Lotta Agaton's pop-up shop where many of the accessories can be found including the black and white prints, the Hay wall calendar and diamond light bulbs. For other items: Muuto The Dots Coat Hanger, Tom Dixon Copper Shade light and etch tea light (Nest). The Eames DAW, Eames RARThonet 209, Thonet 214, (Design Collectors: 15% discount with code MYSCAN).  Kubus bowl By Lassen. Linen bedding from The Linen Works (I love the Cassis colour). Long-haired sheepskin chair cushions from here. What have I missed?

Feel like looking at a few other monochrome spaces? Try this, this and this one!

Oh and don't forget to enter the give-away if you haven't already :)

Have a lovely day and happy halloween Mwah, ha ha haaaa!

Art photography in a Malmö home

Morning and happy 'lilla lördag' (Little Saturday as it's called in Sweden)! Bringing the blog home today with a tour of a beautiful apartment currently for sale in Malmö. Sometimes simple works best, as the pared-down look of this monochrome space shows. The owners have carefully selected a few Scandinavian designer pieces such as the wishbone chair, cross blanket and bumling light and spiced it up with some very cool art photography. 

Bo-laget via La Maison D'Anna G with thanks
What do you think? Too sparse or just right?

I also spy what looks like a pair of the Vitra Occasional table's in the sitting room as well as an Eames DAR (15% off with code MYSCAN). Oh and while on the subject of designer furniture, Design Collectors are currently offering a free Ottoman when you purchase a Lounge Chair. On the case!

PS I came across a really exciting website yesterday that allows you to create your own typography poster! Quite cool don't you think? What motto would you go for? I think I'd got something like: 'She believed she could. So she did'.

A stunning Stockholm home

Every now again I come across a real cracker of a home and when I do, I get so excited that I can't wait to share it with you and hear your thoughts! This is one of them. It comes as no surprise that this Stockholm apartment (currently for sale) belongs to the owners of beautiful Swedish interior shop Artilleriet. Simply fabulous, I'm not sure where to start.....


What do you think, could you live here?

I spy oodles of designer furniture including the Thonet chairs (15% off with code MYSCAN), Bombay print, No early beds writing desk, and Gubi Adnet Mirror

Have a lovely day!

Inspiration from Muuto, Copenhagen

Hello everyone! Last week I visited the new Muuto headquarters in Copenhagen where I met some of the talented Scandinavian designers behind the latest products in the collection and understand more about New Nordic design. As promised here are a few pics......

My Scandinavian Home

Incredible headquarters for an incredible brand! The vignettes around the headquarters were arranged by my clever neighbour and her team from all the way to paris (ATWTP).

Head over to the Muuto website to take a peek at the new collection, or buy some of their fab products here.

Sorry again for the radio silence this week. I've been in Shanghai (amazing city!) and had no access to blogger or Facebook! I'm back in Sweden now, a little jet lagged but happy :)

Good to see you all again!
