my scandinavian home: The happy home of Jenny Brandt

The happy home of Jenny Brandt

Friday, 28 March 2014

Friday definitely calls  for colour. I've shown other images of this fab home before and now new pictures have emerged in the wonderful April edition of Inside Out magazine (available at Google Play and the Apple Newstand). It's the bright coloured and relaxed family home of Swedish blogger, illustrator and photographer (yes, she's one multi-talented lady), Jenny Brandt here in Skåne. Jenny and her family renovated the home from scratch, painting the floors (if you look closely, they're different throughout the house), adding more windows to create natural light as well as a unique personal stamp to everything within. Perfect inspiration for the weekend!

I love the wall of prints. I spy the Fine Little Day Apple Papple and Pirum Parum prints from Mokkasin as well as the Blushing Carl print from Jenny's shop.

For more happy homes with a splash of colour I'm loving Elina Dahls family space, this bright coloured Malmö home, and a vintage inspired Swedish apartment.

Speaking of happiness, do you have any plans for the weekend? P and I have been invited to a 'Lost at Sea' themed party. We're thinking if going as Life of Pi - with P as Piscine and me as the zebra (I definitely got the short straw didn't I?!).  The problem is we'd like to go for a pre-party drink in town and call me a party pooper but I'm not sure I'm willing to do that clad as a zebra? What do you think?  Other ideas welcome!!

Also the clocks finally go forward this weekend. This definitely calls for a celebration so I'm throwing a very exciting give-away here on Sunday. Make sure you stop by - it's open to all!

Have a very happy couple of days and see you Sunday!


  1. This definitely my home!!!! I love everything :-)

    1. It's definitely your style. I love it, it's so bright and cheerful.

  2. J'adooooooooooooooooore!!! Bellissima!

  3. I like very much the vintage accents. Very peaceful and charming home.

  4. We're going to need to see photos of your costumes when they are finished, you know ;) And can I have a sleeping nook like that little kid? That would be so cozy and awesome to have. xo

  5. These pictures are amazing! I especially love the art work on the walls, and where the bookcase is located. I graduated from college six years ago as an English major, and kept all of my books. I have so many of them, but no place to put them so they have all been living in boxes. For my birthday this year, my husband promised that he would build me some new bookshelves, and so I've been trying to find shelf styles that I like. I love the idea of them next to and above a door, I think that would just look so amazing. We bought our house just a few months ago, and we are still putting things together, while unpacking at the same time. We bought the house unfinished, because we really wanted to be able to add our own special touches. Our Realtor thought we were crazy for voluntarily wanting a house that needs extra work, but those bookshelves would make it all worth it, don't you think?
