Just in: our new collection for Spring/Summer 2014
Spring is (almost) in the air and at Nordic House HQ that can only mean one thing: receiving our fabulous new products for Spring Summer 2014!
Getting to shoot our new pieces is one of my favourite times of year as it’s a time when I can really bring out my creative side. Personally sourcing props from my favourite Cornish villages such as Fowey has been an absolute highlight, and I’ve had lots of fun creating my own extra touches! I reconditioned one of our old palettes from the warehouse to create the perfect backdrop for some shots, and gave some antique frames a fresh new look with Annie Sloan paint…. I even sourced some fabulous books from Paris to use – you can see more about my shopping – sorry, propping (!) – trips on our Facebook page.
Unwrapping and shooting our products is always a fantastic experience, but this shoot was even more exciting than usual as it’s the first time we’ve used our new studio! Thanks to the help of a stylist and professional photographer, the photos have come out brilliantly and really showcase the products at their best. I’m so proud of them.
Featuring the classic faded grey and white colour scheme that I so love about Scandinavian style, wooden accents and a Nordic House exclusive, I’ve selected just a few of my favourites to share with you today…
Scandinavian Glass Chandeliers
Magical either alone or grouped together in assorted sizes, these stunning glass chandeliers ooze luxurious yet understated style. These may yet work their way into my own home…
Distressed Wooden Candle Holders
We love the distressed painted finish of these wooden Scandi candleholders, which are tall, graceful and entirely in keeping with the lived-in look we love so much. Topped with pillar candles and clustered together around the home makes for an impressive display.
Stylish Dipped Baskets
These beautiful new dipped baskets are already one of our firm favourites! Lightweight and versatile, they are perfect for storing anything from rolled up towels, to bedlinen or accessories.
Small Tree Table
This small tree table is utterly gorgeous – gently carved, each one is unique with its natural shape and beauty preserved.
These breadboards are beautifully crafted – the front is a gorgeous natural wood, whilst the edges and the back have a lovely smooth grey-painted finish. Hang on the wall with its handy loop or use it is the perfect table accessory.
Hand Crafted Teak Bench
This beautifully hand-crafted, solid teak bench is perfect for indoors or out. We love it for its simple, clean lines and it makes for an uber-stylish yet practical addition to your hallway, kitchen or even the garden!
Arched Hurricane Lantern
Exclusive to Nordic House, this lantern is simply stunning and one of our favourites. The open arches have an architectural feel and it comes complete with an inner glass hurricane. A unique, aged finish and texture makes it look as if it has always belonged.
Knitted Throw – Grey & White
Deliciously soft and with a real home-knitted charm, this lovely grey and white striped throw will add welcome warmth to your home.
Industrial Bedside Cabinets
Industrial chic for the bedroom – these stylish wooden bedside cabinets are reminiscent of old school lockers. They have been finished with a contemporary softly dragged effect in a gorgeous, muted white chalk paint.
Chunky Knit Floor Cushion
Everyone is falling for the wonderful textural appeal of our new Chunky Knit floor cushion. The current craze for traditional crafts makes them oh-so-nostalgic, yet the soft white colour makes them feel contemporary and instantly at home. Cosy down, cuddle up and enjoy!
This is just a small sample of the gorgeous new products in the Nordic House shop – there are actually lots more exciting products on the way, and we’ve got another two photo shoots lined up to make sure we do them justice. However, I’ve been dying for you to see just a few of our pieces so couldn’t wait to share! I hope you love them as much as I do!
