I do love a home tour and good nosy in someone’s home. This monochrome Swedish home caught my eye on Pinterest for that beautiful dining table shot, with the painted white floors, striking Flos pendant light and Fritz Hansen Ant chairs. I love how dynamic the combination is, it’s almost as if the lights are having a little conversation with the chairs, they both have such character.
The light grey walls and light floorboards are a little like what I’ve tried to create in my own living room. How I would love to cover my sofa in a soft, linen cover, I’ve seen this design everywhere and think it’s having something of a moment! For the moment, until I can afford a new cover, or even better a new sofa, I have a handful of linen cushions to try and recreate the look.
The bedroom is kept beautifully calm with light grey walls and no artwork. A wire mesh pendant light makes a statement. It looks like a lovely, reflective space, with that big window letting in soft light. The throw looks to me like HAY’s crinkle throw.
The kitchen continues the theme of shades of grey. I don’t want to reveal too much but I have very similar metal units and handles in my new kitchen (you’ll have to wait until the end of the month for that post!). The narrow space is kept light and spacious by not using wall units, while the extractor fan is very unusual, giving a sleek, contemporary look.
A small black dining table is perfectly positioned at the end of the room for views out of the double doors and access to a small balcony. A smaller mesh pendant light has a lovely, organic shape, while ceramics in neutral, earthy colours soften the monochrome theme.
Shop the look – here I’ve picked a small collection of items from my shop to help achieve that moody, monochrome look…
What do you think? Do you like this smart, monochrome look or would you like to see some colour injected in there?
