Have never seen those living room (vintage lounge chairs by Jindrich Halabala for UP Závody, Brno) chairs in peach before, very different from our version at home in chocolate brown leather.

Influences

SB 1 SB 3 SB 4Most mornings when being in Los Angeles I go for a run or a walk. Not as much for the exercise as for the love of looking at all the houses and gardens and all of their different looks and souls. As much as I love Scandinavian design and working as an interior stylist mostly featuring those influences, I´m sometimes a bit bored with the trends making all homes look almost the same (and before anyone says anything, I know I´m a part of creating those trends so it´s partly my fault too). The trend right now in Sweden is so beautiful, classic and with the perfect natural color tones in combination with beautiful wood and art pieces. And I love it. And I´m tired of it too…I´ve never been one of wanting just one thing in terms of decor and styling. I like mixing and it often starts with the love for one specific object and then creating a story from that specific piece.

Anyhow – the bedroom featured here I found on American lifestyle site The Effortless Chic and I think it very well captures what I in addition to Scandinavian style love too (along with several other things of course). It´s the warmth, the colors, the personal touch and the effortless cosiness. What I fell in love with at first sight was the beautiful vintage rug that seems to have angled corners. It´s nice with a little variation, right?
