Sköna Hem





Yesterday Down and Out Chic had a great post about using restrained touches of turquoise in decor. This home from Sköna Hem was one of my favorite examples. I love the black and white stripes on the Marimekko bedding next to the bold walls. And of course, that painted floor! To see the rest of this cool home, head here!

Love that painted floor!

I love turquoise with black and white. Definitely gives it a more urban, less beachy, edge.

definitely one of my favorite spaces! the black and white against that turquoise gives it such a chic touch.

I love the eclectic mix of furnishings and colors - very cool! I still can't get over how good turquoise looks next to bright white.

I'm with you - I adore that first image with the black and white striped bedding and bold walls. Great find!

Erin, I just wrapped a Bday gift with my signature black and white striped paper and then I added a turqouise tissue band and fluffy tissue paper flower. It so goes with this room!! Kathysue

I love Skona Hem! They always have such fabulous designs. That first room really does pop with all the black and white, which gives it a fun, eclectic vibe. Love it!!
