A beautiful Danish family cabin

Hej hej! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Sometimes to be a family you need to get away from it all and just, well, be. This beautiful Danish home, North of Copenhagen allows for exactly this with it's open planning living space catering for all ages; a swing (I'm all for indoor swings for very little ones), the vintage tolix chairs,  a cosy sitting room corner and dining space. It's the perfect cabin for a family to just hang out and relax and it's where I wish I was this Monday morning!

Do you live in a home like this? Or how do you live? I'm always looking for new homes to show on my blog so please do send me photographs and any tips you have.

It's a beautiful sunny morning here in Southern Sweden, sunny but cold, don't you find these can be the best days of all? Have a lovely day!

A pretty white apartment in Gothenburg

It's Friiiiiiiiiday, woohoo!! To celebrate let's go for a classic contemporary all white affair with this beautiful Gothenburg apartment built in 1939 and for sale via Alvhem (it's been a while since I've done a  'for sale in Sweden' post - at least 7 days...!). I spy Scandinavian designer pieces, mid century finds and vintage prints organised in the relatively small space of 39 metres square. I think the creative people at Alvhem who also own the shop in the last image, have done a fab job.

It's quite impressive how the white makes the space look so much larger than it is. Alvhem has been really clever with the room layout too.

What do you think?

So that's it from me for this week, do you have any great plans for the weekend? Me, I'm off out with the girls tonight :) Oh and re-thinking a major room change in the house which requires lots of help from Pinterest of course! Have a lovely a couple of days and see you Monday!

A 50's Danish home with Ferm Living

This oh so cool home built in 1955 in Gentofte, Denmark was designed by Danish architect Erik Chr. Sørensen. Complete with wood panel and marbled effect walls, it was the perfect backdrop to shoot my fabulous new sponsor Ferm Living's (yes, I know, sooooo exciting!) Autumn / Winter collection.


Ferm Living
Such a fantastic shoot. And again, I'm so excited to welcome Ferm Living to My Scandinavian Home!

PS Wood panelling has enjoyed a bit of a revival in 2012. My parents home was built in the 1950's and I remember having a wood panel wall on one side of the dining room and exposed brick on the other which looked incredibly cool. Though, when my man and I moved into our house we found the extensive amount of wood panelling made it a little to dark, and a lick of white paint has brightened up the entire space. Hmmm. I'm torn.

What are your thoughts - wood panelling in your home, do or don't?
