SCANDINAVIAN STYLE: one fabulous Malmö apartment

Welcome to the Malmö, Sweden home of Nina Bergsten. While not a interior designer by profession, she is by passion and I think it is fair to say her home shows it. Taking up one floor in a large 1800s home, built, owned and originally occupied by the Swedish architect, Harald Boklund, Nina’s living space is filled with details characteristic of Swedish craftsmanship of the time which include stucco, plaster angels, painted ceilings and hand made brick. Perhaps one of the most striking details of the space (the late 19th century painted ceiling in the living room) was actually hidden by an old 1970s drop ceiling until Nina had the good fortune to discover it and the good sense to let it once again see the light of day. So fantastic!

Above – The marble fireplace is non functioning and was purchased by Nina at market. The sofa is from Acne, Flash tables from Tom Dixon, Kvist chandelier by Jonas Bohlin for  Örsjö.


The Taraxacum 88 light is from Flos. The tea set was inherited from Nina’s grandmother and is the classic Musselmalet from Royal Copenhagen. The Antelope chairs by Monica Förster appear to have gone out of production.

The Vika desk is from Ikea and the Wood lamp is available though the Future Perfect.

Contrasts of new and old: Above – a dressing rack from Ikea and a gold mirror found at the Paris Clignancourt antique market. Below – a contemporary white dressing tray is set against a dresser inherited from Nina’s grandmother.
