A serene white and grey Swedish apartment

An eye-watering start today with a train ride to the IKEA headquarters to view all their new products - always so exciting despite the red-eye train! They're doing great things at the mo (love the SINNERLIG collection and all the fab styling by Pella Hedeby including this DIY project I'm on it!). Since I'm back in Sweden I thought I'd also celebrate by showing a classic Swedish home tour with fresh white walls and light grey floors. The natural fibres such as rattan and wood add warmth to the look. Since the clocks have gone back and the light is starting to fade here in the North, light tones are helping to bounce around what little natural light we have - essential!



I love the fifties style kitchen counter top - the pattern is a design classic known as 'virrvarr' and was designed by a member of the Swedish family - Prince Sigvard Bernadotte. The 'boet' glass storage drawers are also an original from the same era - so fab!

I also spy: string shelves, vase with brass top, cluster light, children's brio oven and trolley. 

Farrow & Ball's  'strong white' is a great very pale grey hue for floors.

Other homes with a fresh white and light grey colour palette include this serene swedish space, a cool Stockholm apartment and this dreamy flat.

Have a lovely day!
