I’ve often worried that if I ever moved out of the city, my interior style could suffer. I get so inspired by my surroundings, the thought of rolling hills or coastal paths is appealing , the idea of being parted from such great architecture and exhibitions scares me.
I have no immediate plans on moving out of the M25 but coming across this beautiful home made me feel slightly better about the possibility. How happy was I to find a family that moved from the city of Stockholm to the serene countryside town of Skåne and kept their city style, all while being sympathetic to the building.
Mid Century furniture blends well with minimal industrial furniture. Look at the hard lines in black, all wood furniture in teak. Walls, floor and ceiling in white and other accessories in grey. This clever use of toning makes what could be a sparse awkward space into a harmonious living environment.
Window frames painted black, which also link with the black picture frames throughout the building. This teak storage is stunning too! This is a great example of monochrome design, leading the eye to all corners of the room. Wall mounted storage gives the illusion of a larger living space. The wall lighting is very industrial.. I LOVE it!
I don’t know how I feel about this dolls head. Combining slate floor tiles with modern soft furnishings has a classic and harmonious feel.
I’m so in love with these zinc planters.
