Scandinavians love it: from the soft morning light through to evening shadows. Place your dining table where you can benefit from as much natural light as possible.
Give your space room to breathe – the perfect solution if you are working to a budget. You don't need to fill a space with furniture; buy less but more of the pieces you really love.
Take your time to build up a Nordic-style home, mixing old with new. Try pairing painted and wooden chairs at your dining table or popping a sheepskin pouf next to your fabric sofa.
Plants are a must in a Nordic scheme, creating harmony between inside and out. They are also the perfect accompaniment to those white walls – green evokes a crisp yet relaxing mood.
With many Scandinavians working from their summer cottages, where sometimes
guests outnumber available beds, a flexible space is a must. Use screens to divide areas and add built-in storage.
