A cocoon-like Swedish home in dark grey

It was a while since we headed over to the dark side here on My Scandinavian Home. And with Autumn in the air, and the need for a warm, cocoon-like space, I feel it's definitely time, don't you! This apartment in Fredsborg, North east of Stockholm has been painted in a deep grey, providing a simple yet dramatic backdrop for softer textures such as white linen (cue the oh so beautiful Le Grand Air sofa) and rustic wood. Clean, modern lines are balanced with sculptures and rounded shapes from ceramics which have been arranged in clusters on coffee table, shelves and ledges throughout. I think I could hang around here this weekend, how about you?!

What do you reckon, could you imagine creating a darker ambience like this in your home?

Even if you don't go all out grey, you can still get the elegant look with some of these lovely pieces: sitting room - Le Grand Air sofa, the rug looks like a Private 0204, but correct me if I'm wrong! Lampe Gras is similar to the wall lamp. Dining area: Series 7 chair, bentwood chairs, Tulip table in marble. Bedroom - Linen curtains (lovely!) and stonewashed linen bedding in charcoal. Buy a simple row of wooden hooks from IKEA and paint it in the same colour as the wall (for a similar colour try samples from Farrow & Ball's range of dark colours)

For more 'dark inspiration you might want to have a nose around this lovely swedish space, an elegant Stockholm apartment and a beautiful house in France. The latter is one of my all time favourites!

It's nearly time for the weekend, wooooop! It's going to be terrible weather here (not so woop) so I'm planning on tucking into one of these 13 baked cheese recipes (the first one?!) while I wait indoors for some of my second hand finds from the week to arrive (exciting!). Have you got any fun plans?

Oh and they say it's tricky to work with children and animals - and I actually managed both yesterday (I know!). You can see the fruits of my lovely afternoon with dearest Daphne, the sweetest (and most elegant) poodle in town on the blog tomorrow....

Happy Friday!
