Sweet Swedish Spaces

This is the last in my series about Scandinavian Design until after we return from our trip.  A week from tomorrow we'll be on a plane to Copenhagen!  Today I put together some more beautiful Swedish designs, but before we go there... 

In light of our upcoming trip including Norway, I wanted to take a moment to recognize
the terrible tragedy that happened there last Friday. 
My sincere thoughts and sympathies are with all of the victims' families.

Now, on to lighter topics:

This room reminds me of my post on Effortless Design
I love this look!

This house is actually in Texas, but I love this interpretation of Swedish design!

Simplicity at its best.  And, what a cool chair...

Veranda Magazine
Beautiful, right?  I thought so too.

You can find more posts about Scandinavian design here, here, here, here, here and here.

By the way, my parents arrive from the US tomorrow, so my posts may be a bit light in the next week
or so as we enjoy our time together.  
I'm sure I'll put out a few posts in between visiting though.  I can't resist.  :)

Happy Monday everyone!

Love Swedish design, my very first real piece of adult furniture was from a Nordic furniture store and I was so attracted to the blonde woods and clean lines, its a very soothing kind of decor and these pictures illustrate that beautifully!

Lovely - I think my favorite is the shot from Veranda. Yes, so horrible what happened in Norway - what a tragedy all due to the crazed delusions of one sick person!!

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

We love this look. The house two images from the Veranda are several of our favorite spaces. The blue doors or shutters leaning against the wall make such a wonderful statement in that room!
Just beautiful. Have a great visit with your family!!
