It’s been a while since I visited Gen – and it’s always fun as she’s constantly updating her home! This time it was her home office that’s been given the make-over treatment. For those of you who are new to My Scandinavian Home, Genevieve Jorn (@genevievejorn) is an ÜBER talented Canadian interior designer living in Malmö. I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with Gen many times over the years. I captured her home office a few years back. As beautiful as it was, it was fairly dark, and this room is quite narrow and doesn’t get a whole lot of light. Recently, Gen replaced heavier dark details with soft, neutral textiles and touches of light wood and rattan and it has made a huge difference! A large white ergonomic desk stands in the centre of the room. The space also serves as a guest bedroom when friends and family are in town and when they’re not, the bed becomes a perfect place for afternoon siestas or a quiet spot to read! I took my camera along to snap a few pictures…
Isn’t it lovely? I seriously could have stayed all week (taking the occasional nap on the daybed!), it felt so serene!
If you’re considering converting a room in your home into an office / guest bedroom I hope it’s given you lots of inspiration! Here’s the low down on where some of the items are from:

Gen’s used the white Arigato wall lamp and table lamp from Grupa – I like the way this brings the different corners of the room together (and there’s no denying that they’re pretty amazing lamps too!).
Just wondering if there is anything else important to mention. Ah yes! The drawers under the bed – did you spot them?! They were salvaged from a vintage chest of drawers that Gen was throwing out. Love this idea!
Have a wonderful day!
