……………….Thank You Charlotte from Swiden…………

A Swedish lady living in Melbourne, Australia, who's actual name really is 'Swiden' designs the most beautiful Scandinavian style kitchen and home accessories. Inspired by her upbringing at the southern shores of Sweden, Charlotte just needs to add objects from nature in al her illustrations… and in her own words just like many other Swedes: Charlotte loves order, structure, white space and
more white space…. and I like this too :-) 


You can go shopping for her product right here and next week Charlotte will be our guest again for an Art in Your Home feature… more images form her great home.

    Gorgeous. I especially adore your bedroom. And wow, those saucepan lids on your wall bring back memories – my mum had exactly those pans when I was a kid in Australia!

  2. Jamie says dream

    Lovely home! I’m Swedish too and I get Swedish vibes from parts of the home, and a lot from the pattern design of the cutting boards in the shop 🙂

    Like Solovelydecoration (in a comment) I like your cosy bedroom and the lids on your kitchen(?) wall. And the colour of that wall is almost the same as in my kitchen. Love the cushions as well.
