Fabric of my Life.

All white, all right.

i realise it’s been a while since i shared a beautifully styled home from a swedish estate agency site on here!

in between uprooting my old life and moving cities, then getting settled in my new abode, i’ve not had much time to partake in one of my favourite pastimes, and have instead been focused on furnishing my own ‘somewhat swedish’ white box home (which i’ll be sharing snaps of really soon, i promise!)

i know that all the homes i discover one these sites have been staged for sale but there are always lots of tips and tricks to steal for your own space, not least of all how to make simple, affordable pieces from ikea work wonderfully. i spy the new rattan coffee table and chrome table lamp from the stockholm 2017 range in this renovated duplex apartment i found on stadshem, along with hardworking classics such as the frosta stool used as a bedside table (as i do in my own home) and the karlstad sofa (sadly now discontinued in the uk), paired with modern design classics such as the tray coffee table from hay, arne jacobsen ant chair and the people’s chair by børge mogensen in the kitchen.

i really love the cool calm feeling maintained throughout by the use of soft neutral hues against the white backdrop – raw wood, textured rattan and crinkled linens offset by a few dynamic flashes of black. its a look i’m seeking to emulate albeit with a few additional splashes of pattern and colour thrown in, because i’m actually living in my home, y’know? but the pretty vignettes of cooking oils and spice pots can be recreated, along with the showcasing of elegant wooden chopping boards, and i also really like the framed artwork propped nonchalantly up on the kitchen counter..

  1. I have been to an art gallery many a time and it is often that the walls displaying the art are usually a stark white. Well this is because the art you hang looks so much better when it’s placed against a blank background. If you are an art lover and want to display your collection best, then make sure you have nice white walls.

  2. What a beuatiful home! I’d love someplace as light as this but don’t think this much white would be practical for living in!!

  3. Looks really great, I like that style! White looks always so stylish and with the right accessories it doesn’t look clean and sterile. Good job Best wishes, Nina from Sukhi.de
