BLOG LOVE :: Annaleenas Hem

Four words sum up Annaleenas Hem: minimalist monochromatic Scandinavian design. Annaleena Karlssen is a Swedish designer and blogger and her home, creations and photography are so refined and pared back that the word minimal seems almost ‘too much’ to describe her style.

Have you noticed the trend for monochrome gaining momentum? There are a lot of black and white home wares around and I’m noticing more people are adopting the look. I do absolutely love this style… but I love to look at it, I’m not sure that I could live in it. Parts of my apartment tend towards monochromatic, but glance sideways and you’ll be greeted by a burst of colour. What do you think, could you live without colour?

    Hi – I can’t imagine living in a home without colour. I really love shabby chic pastel colours at the mo – gentle on the eye and soul. Thanks for sharing, Chris x

      Hi Chris, thanks for your thoughts. Yes, pastels are so soothing and quite delicious aren’t they.

    I love a bit of colour, there is enough gloom in the world without surrounding yourself in it. Tidy, minimalistic if you must but definitely colour.

      Hi Monique – I agree that we don’t need any more gloom, although I suspect that this kind of total minimalism is uplifting for the people who love it and live it. Luckily we all have our own taste! Like you it’s colour that does it for me.
