get this look: swedish chic.
by victoria comment


i love the look of this home i found on alvhem, a swedish real estate site that makes me drool with homeowner envy every time i venture over there. this home is up for sale, but since i’m not sure many of us can just pop on over and move to sweden, i thought it be fun to share a few simple, and inexpensive accessories to help get the look. these home furnishings are fairly sparse and simple, so it’s the accessories that make these rooms inviting. here’s a couple of ideas…

wanna keep warm in style? try some of these looks: ikea’s ludde gray sheepskin; spotted sheepskin from black sheep white light; and yet another option, huset’s gotland sheepskin.

get the look with ikea’s inexpensive maskros pendant lamp; and some pretty penelope wallpaper; or some of the floral options from the designers guild wallcoverings collection.

i think the someday print from yellena james echoes the print over the bed quite nicely; and cb2’s array ‘invisible’ stacking bookcase would work nicely here, as well as in the living room (up top).

  3. I sooo love these international homes….from the crown molding to the fireplaces, from the small rooms to the white/brightly papered walls. One of the reasons I like watching the “House Hunters International”….so addictive!

  4. Yay for Yellena! I discovered her in 2007 randomly searching through Etsy for wedding jewelry and have been in love with her work ever since.

  5. I’ve had that print (shown hanging above the bed) on my wishlist for months!! It’s ISO SATAKIELI and can be found here: for anyone interested in that particular print. Now that I think about it, I had better order it before it sells out… ;) Pretty home!
