Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Old school

One reader commented the other day that the style here has changed, she thought I had become much to colorful and bohemian... I took a look at what I had posted recently, and realized she was right. I blame Spring! I always tend to go for a bit more color when I've gotten tired of all the greys and whites of winter, and this winter has been extremely long, so perhaps my longing for spring was extra strong this year. I'll try to make it up to her, and everyone else who thinks I've lost my style, within the next few days with a pile of quite minimalist spaces.

This first home is from Sköna Hem, an old school building in the most southern part of Sweden, owned by artist Xenia Edberg Kledzig.

Ps. I found this guide to Amsterdam on LoftLife's site. I think it's great, and it reminded me it's very much time for me to go back there!

    I don't think you've gotten away from anything! I think your choices are well-edited, interesting to look at, and useful. Style isn't static. :)

    Not lost your style, evolved! Det er når en er trygg at en kan tillate seg og leke og ikke minst slappe av! Fortsett sånn!!!

    Thank you so much for your encouraging words! I'm happy to hear that you don't disapprove of the new track I've turned into... My tastes are quite broad, and sometimes I go for more bohemian spaces, sometimes more sparse. I'm glad you like it all!

    I like the new track. There is something fresh about bohemian because we haven't seen it in awhile.
