Home Tour: Colourful & Vintage Swedish Space

You can almost always count on those Swedish folks to get colour just right, with this Boras home proving a fine example. The space is full of flea market finds, often in beaten, weathered hue of sepia, gun metal and brown, which creates a rustic feel against the modern all white colour base. Interior designer and owner of the home Jonanna Flyckt adds a third element that runs throughout the space: colourful accessories. Mixed with her love for all things vintage, Jonanna’s bright additions bring personality and playfulness to her home. I love the worn out turquoise hues of the bedroom and the mix of electric and sky blues with bright orange in the dining area and kitchen. What do you like about Jonanna’s home?

    I can't pick just one thing! That first picture just drew me in..I love the white walls that allow all the colors to shine! I love the vintage homey feel. What program do you use for your pictures and layouts?

    So major. I've always loved the idea of a mix of chairs at a table. And a chair for a nightstand is SO carrie bradshaw — to die for!
