Timeout Tuesday – Black & White Sweden

Continuing my swedish theme I thought I’d share some more stunning interiors found in the name of research.  The below gorgeous 1961 family home in Malmö belongs to Anna Nordström Carlsson seen in Haus & Hem. A strong white backdrop and beautiful herringbone flooring gives a classic feel. 

I also noticed what I think might be an IKEA striped rug and the snow range by Apslund. I’m totally in love though with the La Mela screenprint designed by Enzo Mari in 1963 for Danese Milano, Italy (available from the lollipop shoppe)

In Susanne Gillerås beautiful black and white villa (in residence magazine) there is a treasure trove of auction bargains and industrial finds. With my own love of flea markets and salvage I am quite taken with that “bar” or drinks trolley and also the patina on the worn brown leather club chair. Notice the great yellow pops against the black, white and concrete – lovely visual interest.

    Love the light fixtures in the picture with the silver chairs! Fabulous!

    I know it's everywhere but I do really like the IKEA black and white rug – something graphic and comforting about it.

    Kathy the Vintage Tolix (style) chairs are increasingly difficult to get hold of. So dead jealous, I've always fancied a set in blue or yellow for my garden.

    Will I wish I'd snapped up a couple of these when I saw them – like a fool I didn't, thinking "oh they always have those in" as they are classic. I think a couple stitched together look really great.

    That is a great Swedish home. You will laugh but I considered this home tour for my blog post today, too:-)))
