Tour a Beautiful and Harmonious Scandinavian Home in Natural Shades

, , , , , , , , , , , , , By Catherine

Located near Malmö, Sweden, this family home is a dream come true for its owners. They had a vision and worked hard to make it happen; building a house is quite an experience and can be a steep learning curve. And the result is stunning! 

The nature lovers wanted a place with large windows that would blur the boundaries between inside and out.

The rooms are bright, and there is a sense of calm throughout the place. The neutral shades of beige, sand, white, and grey contribute to the serene atmosphere.

Natural materials were also favored, creating a cohesive and harmonious home. Layering textures, as shown here, is one of my top tips to create a cozy, tone-on-tone interior the Scandinavian way.

The polished terrazzo is a nice twist on the usual, plain concrete floors; these small chips of marble or granite add interest and variety.

The amazing woodwork is a great testament to craftsmanship, wouldn’t you agree?

Not only is the place gorgeous, but it is also filled with beautiful design classics: Wishbone chairs by Hans J. Wegner, brown leather Butterfly chairs, a PH Snowball pendant lamp from Louis Poulsen, Saucer pendants by George Nelson, a Tea Trolley by Alvar Aalto for Artek, and a Flag Halyard Chair from PP Møbler, among others.

Enjoy the tour below!
