A delightful Swedish home with dark wood features

Hello Friday, how great to see you! I realised the other day that we've been living in our house in southern sweden for over 8 years! When we first moved in one side of the interior was covered in dark wood walls and all the doors were made from the same material. Bit by bit we painted over the wood and it made a huge difference to the light. Some wood features still remain though and I like the mid-century vibe it brings to the look. This home in Gothenburg, Sweden bears the same subtle wood touches and is complimented by beautiful soft shades of grey, mid-century furniture and touches of brass. Loving the plants throughout too.

What do you think? Is this your kind of style?

A few items I know and love: Aquarelle canvas wall hangingEktorp sofa with a relaxed linen cover (try Bemz). Hay strap mirror. I love this pair of mid-century brass floor lamps. Hay polygon quilt. Source a similar gold picture frame here.

More inspiration for decorating with wood in the archive here (scroll passed the first one).
