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 by the Swedish architect, Harald Boklund, Nina’s living space is filled with the details old Swedish craftsmanship, which includ handmade bricks, stucco detailing and that gloriously painted ceiling. Fascinatingly, when Nina first moved in, the late 19th century ceiling was hidden by a 1970s drop ceiling – that is until Nina had the good fortune to discover it and good sense to reveal it. Above – The marble fireplace is non functioning and was purchased at market. The sofa is from Acne, Flash tables from Tom Dixon and the Kvist chandelier by Jonas Bohlin for Örsjö.




The Taraxacum 88 light is from Flos. The Antelope chairs are by Monica Förster. The tea set was inherited from Nina’s grandmother and is the classic Musselmalet pattern from Royal Copenhagen.





The Diamond chairs chairs are vintage 1953 Harry Bertoia and the photo art is by David Johansson.




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.
