Skona Hem Eye Candy
I was really blown away by a few articles that appeared recently in Sweden's home magazine, Skona Hem. Did you see these two spaces? The first is really amazing... it's English and Swedish design rolled into one gorgeous package that I could move into tomorrow. Well, perhaps not as a full-time dwelling, I'd prefer something a bit less ornate and more modern, but I could easily take this property as a vacation flat. :)
This home is hopelessly romantic and the bones of each room alone are to die for (moldings, ceramic stove, wood floors, soaring ceilings), but the decor is simply fabulous. I love all of the textiles, this home really feels cherished and lived in but also well edited and designed by someone with an obvious flair for decorating.
This home is a bit different, more modern with cleaner lines... and the Swedish style shines through. I love the mix of artwork, the arrangement of all the prints over the dresser and buffet, and the collection of white ceramics and glass. The freshly picked branches adorned with berries is the perfect touch adding a natural element to warm things up along with a burst of color so that the vases and glassware do not become lost against the white wall. What a dreamy home!
