Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Deborah lives here!

If you are on Instagram, I'm sure you have seen the lovely photos coming out of Deborah's (apieceofcake82 on instagram) bright and airy family home in Scotland. I love her pictures, and wanted to share them here too, so she sent me some pics that are not instagrammed, for you all to enjoy. I've been bugging her to get a blog, and she is working on it so it should be up soon, but in the meantime you can follow her on Instagram and Pinterest, or from her guest posts on A Merry Mishap blog.

    The grey sofa comes from IKEA and the wall clock comes from KARLSSON! :)

    Stunning home-thanks so much for sharing! The clock can also be found in Habitat if that person lives in the UK! I will connect on Instagram straight away! :-)

    Is the little desk next to the bed from IKEA? If not where can I find one? Love this black and white theme but afraid I'd have to get rid of all I own to achieve it!!!

  • Casper says:

    Way too much black and white for my taste! This person obviously reads a lot of blogs, but doesn't really seem to have much personal style to add to the mixture, and I'm afraid that that makes the home is a bit too sterile for my taste.

    Full of design cliches and lacks originality, in my opinion. Looks like a page from Ikea catalogue.

    Love it, anyone who knows where the light-/darkgrey chair is from, and the blanket on the couch?

    I cant believe that such a simple colour scheme of grey black and white can look so interesting. I really love this home, full of style :)

  • julie @ tractorgirl says:

    I too love the black, white & grey - great textures and wonderful patterns mixed with the warmth of ochre and wood create a cosy and comfy place.... but yes! how about featuring a home or two with lots of colour?!!!

    Svar: I'm glad you like the pics, but since I don't like color you will have to go to some other blog to see that.

    I agree with Mia. It is a concentrate of cliche!!!
    Zero personnality in this place.

    I love the nordic interior design. I'm actually trying to get a few things from the photos but I don't know what they are. I'm wondering if anyone could give me some help.
    I put together a 48Squares showrooms to show a few furnitures I'm looking for. ( http://www.48squares.com/showrooms/83-take-a-look-at )

  • Shelley says:

    Varför ser inte mitt sovrum ut som på sista bilden? Blä, fast har typ gröna väggar i rummet. Kan du inte göra ett inlägg med inspo för rum med färg på väggarna? :D

    Svar: Haha, nej här blir det nog inga inlägg om färg på väggarna. :) Jag tycker väggar ska vara vita, eller möjligtvis svarta eller grå, för att skapa en lugn bakgrund för inredningen. Ta en roller och måla över det gröna. :)

    Hi Emma, I hope you can help me out here. I have been searching the internet for ages hoping to find one of those round white plates with the black flags on it (as can be seen on the String pocket shelves). Do you know where I can buy one?! Hope you can help! :)

    Thanks a lot for your great blog, I am a devoted reader.

    Svar: Hi Tinna, that's a tray, with the same pattern as the town square Sergels Torg here in Stockholm. It's from http://www.formverket.se/
