A while ago I discovered the blog of Sania Hedengren and Susanna Zacke, stylists and home dec journalists from Sweden. It’s so lovely to see cozy, colorful Scandinavian style – not everything and everyone in the Nordic countries revolves around modern monochrome minimalism, you know. 🙂
Just a few favorites:
Lovely blue and white front hall with touches of pale wood from an article of theirs in Hus & hem magazine some time in 2015.
Detail from a dream kitchen with white and blue.
Whoops! That’s almost only blue and white and wood. Well, I do know what I love. 🙂

A few lovely kitchen pics for a sunny spring day!
Painted kitchen drawers make for a lovely surprise glimpse of yellow:
A wonderful combination of white and bright colors by Jutta at Kootut murut:
Orange walls and accents from the home of Adelle Robinson and Justin Keefe, found via design*sponge:
I’m not a friend of subway tile, but in the picture below they’re tolerable (but still not handsome enough to tempt me):
Last but not least, blue kitchen cabinets!
I’m taking the rest of the month off, blogwise. Happy April!

Weslie and Kristina’s north Texas kitchen is not only lovely, it pings my Nordic radar. And no surprise: Kristina is Finnish.
I LOVE the rag rug on the floor! Lots of white and a little blue, green, and red, plus a dash of black, with varying stripe widths. Goes really well with the modern look, including the red Marimekko Unikko curtain fabric. Apparently it’s a handmade vintage piece which was a gift from their sister-in-law in Finland.
Found via House*Tweaking.

Here’s my day five:
It’s finally warm enough that the heat has *not* turned on during the night. This morning, it was 64 degrees (18 celcius) when we came down.

Wow, this tile wall is quite something:
I love the color variation in the tiles. And yet, somehow the wall looks harmonious and not busy. Probably because it’s monotone and the contrasts are not big. (Personally, though, I would just hate to clean those grout lines!)
