a house with children in london


This is the beautiful London home of Swedish illustrator Nina Blychert where she lives with her French husband and their two sons. Together they rebuilt a magnificent Edwardian Kensington house near Hyde Park. Nina has managed to combine the simplicity of Scandinavian art with attention to detail which can also be found in those beautiful mansions in France.


Gorgeous wooden flooring, comfy sofas, white walls and contemporary art: the vibe is refined, relaxed, artistic and multicultural all at once. And everything is designed to leave room for creativity for the children and Nina, who will be releasing a new book soon.
