A Swedish Family Home Packed With Color

Last week was a week of color on The Nordroom with the announcement of the color trends for 2023. So it feels fitting to start this new week with a colorful home tour.

This Swedish home never made it to the for sale page on the site of one of Sweden’s finest real estate agencies Historiska Hem. This home was so in demand that it was sold before it was listed.

And I completely understand why. The light-filled rooms in this apartment feature stunning historic details. And these are combined with colorful walls and furnishings. This family home combines a mixture of decorating styles with bright, modern colors which are set in historic architecture.


The living room is painted in a bright blue shade that is combined with ochre yellow sofas and a deep blue rug. The stunning original tiled fireplace add historic charm and warmth to the room.


The owners furnished the room with midcentury furniture. The reading spot in front of the windows features a classic Eames chair and a stunning midcentury side cabinet with matching wooden shelves.


Next to the family room is a children’s playroom painted in a light gray shade with baby blue trimmings.


A new color awaits us in the kitchen with the cabinets painted in a lovely green shade which is combined with a marble worktop. I guess that the color inspiration for the kitchen cabinets comes from the stained glass window above the door.


Next to the kitchen is a dining room with plenty of space for a generous dining table. The wall panels are painted in a warm white shade and it is combined with William Morris Willow wallpaper.


Create even more seating spaces by adding a bench to the dining room.


The master bedroom is completely painted in a soft pink shade. The exact shade is unknown but Farrow & Ball’s Setting Plaster is a similar pink hue. I love that the built-in wardrobes have been painted in the same shade to make them blend in more.

Just as in the living room they added a rug in a stronger shade of the same color as the walls. The ochre yellow throw adds another color accent to the room.


The bathroom is painted in the same pink shade as the master bedroom. The bathroom is designed in a classic style with white metro tiles, a clawfoot bath, and marble checkerboard floor tiles.


The kid’s bedroom is not big but very smartly designed. The sage green room includes a loft bed with a small built-in desk underneath.
