I am surrounded by many great friends and friends of friends with lovely homes. It is about time that I start sharing how some of them live! They are not professional designers (although they could be if they wanted to!), they are just ordinary people like most of us, with a strong passion for design and an excellent eye for creating wonderful and personal homes. Nothing is pretend, nothing is staged. This is the real deal.
Meet my close & wonderful friend Pernilla! Every time we get together, we forget about everything else and just chat about design for hours non-stop. We are equally passionate design nerds! (And my little William and Pernilla’s little Klara are close friends and destined to end up as a married couple some 30 years from now – we Moms have decided!).
Pernilla is from Sweden and this girl lives it too! Lots of white and many classic Scandinavian design pieces. Like many Swedes her great style is simple and fresh.
Her wonderful & handy (!) husband just made this long dining table to go with their Danish Waegner chairs. I think it turned out fantastic!
Pernilla loves mixing white and black with added pops of color.
No home is Swedish without a classic, gray sheep skin.
Pernilla and her husband are seriously contemplating buying a second home in Sweden. A lovely vacation spot to call home from home. And this is what they are swooning over right now. (Hold on to your hats!).
When Pernilla just recently discovered this place she immediately interrupted her husband’s business meeting just so he could start putting the energy out there for this house! I would interrupt my husband too! What a house for relaxing days and easy living!
The house is situated in the southern parts of Sweden (Skåne).
What a great mix of old and new. And what a light and airy home. Stunning in my book.
This house has Pernilla’s name all over it. I can so see her in it! And I can so see myself visiting – often, often! In fact, I might be that horror guest that just keeps on extending and extending my stay!
Happy new week to you all! Let it be a good one!
