Scandi summerhouses often have a lovely ‘inherited’ feel, with pieces that look as if they have been passed down through generations. It’s not uncommon to find piles of beautiful tableware, stacks of lovely linen and clusters of glistening glassware on open shelving, ready for family gatherings. But it’s not all about old or preloved pieces – you can get the look with new too.
Choose buys you love and you’ll soon have a collection of your own family favourites. Look for timeless touches like a beaded edge on tableware, ribbed or coloured glasses or good-quality linen napkins that will just get better with age. This is a look that you can add to, taking your time and finding pleasure in building your own vintage Scandi style.
