Interior Inspiration – Swiden and Sweden

This week, we’re feeling super inspired by the brand new art prints that have arrived from Sweden-born artist Swiden. We’re huge fans of her candy-coloured, abstract artworks, and of the interior style of her country of birth. So for the love of all things Scandinavian, we went hunting for some of the best Scandi-style interiors (and walls where we’d love to see Swiden art prints hanging!)

Love those hanging pendant lights in our current colour crush – candy pink! And we WANT those mint green vintage chairs at our place!
Also, polished white concrete floors? Yes please!

Lots of iconic Scandinavian design in this little space – including the Tulip table (designed in the 50′s by Eero Saarinen for furniture brand Knoll), that statement Louis Poulsen-style light, and those gorgeous blonde timber chairs by modern design brand Muuto.

The Scandi-look is famous for white, white and more white! Like this gorgeous little dining nook. (We love a nook!) The mis-matched chairs add some personality, and keep the look from being too minimal and austere. We’d also love to see a Swiden art print on that wall, to give this space a little burst of modern colour amongst all the white!

A Scandi-style interior doesn’t have to mean super clean and white – there’s also the moodier look that’s popular in the long Winters. Think black furniture, lots of deep and soft grey, and plenty of natural texture with accents like wool, wood and hides. We think this space would look awesome with a little pop of colour in the form of one of our Swiden art prints (with a bold black frame.)

This stylish Scandi space shows off the latest on-trend colour palette: soft neutrals with pastels. Keep the ‘canvas’ clean and simple, then decorate with modern, candy-coloured textiles and homeware.

There’s sooo much to love in this cool kitchen – the herringbone kitchen tiles (adore!), the vintage ladder used as a towel rack,  that massive industrial light…

Print Pairs!

Fave prints, and fave places! No time to talk… let’s get to lookin’!

Feminine art print and pink bedroom

Woah – talk about a dream bedroom! That oversized geometric rug, the Scandi-style rocking chair, that gorgeous half-painted wall, the bed linen… we could continue… We’d love to see the Bubblegum art print by Laura O’Connor on the wall here – a nice big A2 size, framed.

Vintage art print and home office

We love this clean and neutral home office. Our Bulb art print (by NZ designer Josh King) would be a great way to keep the pared-back colour palette but still add some personality.

kids art print and kids bedroom

Kids rooms beg for loads of colour and plenty of furry friends! We love the encouraging message (and super cute characters) in this Be Brave art print by NZ illustrator Beck Wheeler.

bird NZ art print and bedroom bed

Grey is a great go-to for a serene, stylish bedroom. Our Blue Robin original artwork, created with soft ink pen lines and washed-out watercolours, is the perfect floaty style for a laid-back space like this one.

floral framed art print and dining room

White and light doesn’t have to be boring! All you need is a couple of interesting colour items – like the orange lamp and red chair in this pretty, modern space. The fresh flowers instantly brighten the room too! Well, here’s some flowers that’ll never wilt – the new Vintage Floral art print by NZ designer Bren Michelle.

bird art print and living room

Now here’s a simple way to pull together a cohesive space – go for a mainly black and white look… then add pops of just one colour. Lemon yellow brings sunshine indoors even in the midst of winter… and this little yellow bird art print makes us feel chirpy too!

kids print and nursery

This nursery is adorbs! Love that circular crib, the modern harlequin wallpaper, and that teeny tiny sun dress on display as art. That’s a multi-colour alphabet art print on the wall there… like our Alphabet art print by Kissy Kissy Kids!
