A Modern House on Sweden's West Coast

Complete chaos here this morning after coming home on a really late flight from Edinburgh last night. My poor girls were so tired getting off to school (bad parent award) and man flu has hit the house *horror of horrors*! Fortunately, once they were all sorted, I headed off to a wonderful workshop at Summer Will Be Back (great name, beautiful illustrations!) in Copenhagen (more on Insta stories!). And then I hit upon the Swedish home of Karin Boo Wiklander in Gothenburg, Sweden and may day really perked up! Karin is a photographer, stylist and the PR & Inhouse Manager at Boråstapeter, Engblad & Co and Cole & Son. If you love modern architecture, clean aesthetics, concrete floors and muted colours - this house is for you!

Carl Hansen Wishbone chairs, Kvist lamp, Paleo vase, Chevron Aluminium Mat

Star 6 lamp
Sectional Glass Cabinet

Söderhamn Sofa Bed Section with Bemz, Tavolo coffee table
Skagerak mirror

Göte ceiling lamp

What a fabulous house? I love the concrete floor (such a big fan!).

Is there anything that caught your eye?

If you fancy seeing a few more angles, there are lots of lovely images of Karin's home over on her blog and instagram!

Right. I'd better get home and tend to my family! I am armed with newly sown seeds from my workshop - do these count as flowers?!

Have a lovely day / evening!

PS the winner of a TRIWA watch from the spring collection has now been announced here!
