Subway Tiles and a Herringbone Floor

Hallå! And welcome to another beautiful Swedish home. This one is courtesy of Entrance, a brilliant Scandinavian real estate website that I only just discovered this week. As if I needed another place to pine over beautiful apartments that I’ll never own.

For me, this place is a really nice example of contemporary interior design that still looks ‘lived in’ – two things which can be quite difficult to marry together. I couldn’t imagine drinking a cup of tea or slobbing on the sofa in most of the carefully-put together Scandi homes you see online at the moment. This is an exception.

Favourite elements for me: the herringbone wooden floor in the header image – partly for the pattern, but also for the colour of the wood – and the slightly different shades of white on the cabinet fronts and subway tiles in the kitchen. I’m actually thinking of doing a colour palette very similar to this when we come to decorating our first kitchen…

Lucy started writing Decorenvy as a scrapbook to record ideas when she began decorating her own place in 2013. Her frustration at the lack of alternatives to high street brands and catalogue decorating has since seen it evolve into a sourcebook for unusual and interesting design, complete with tours of beautiful homes and the occasional ill-advised DIY project.

bored of the high street.
