I am smitten with Swedish interior designer Louise Liljencrantz and her sense of aesthetic. Her work for her eponymous firm has been featured on Nordic Design before, and it is truly inspiring.
It is, then, no surprise that her home is stunning. As you’ll see in these images, her personal style shines through: Highly curated and elegant, with rich textures, and a mix contemporary designer pieces and amazing vintage finds. This interior looks effortlessly refined and definitely chic.
I’ve got a serious case of house envy!
Here are a few ideas on how to get the look at home:
- The coffee table is the Alanda by Paolo Piva;
- In the dining room you’ll find a ceiling light by Serge Mouille;
- For a similar style in the kitchen, I suggest Tate Olive from Benjamin Moore combined with something like Off White or Old White from Farrow & Ball;
- Two Standard chairs by Jean Prouvé can be seen in the kitchen;
- I also spot Stoff Nagel candleholders in the dining room and these stools in the living room;
- For similar thick white curtains, I recommend these;
- Notice that the wooden accents are mostly walnut;
- Brass is Louise’s metal of choice to add a touch of luxe.
