one of my favorite bloggers, niki brantmark of my scandinavian home has a brand new decor book out, and i think you’re want to add it to your design library. the book is the Scandinavian home: Interiors inspired by light, and since niki’s blog covers this design trend extensively on her blog, she’s the perfect person to compile the look into a book. Scandinavia is famous for homes that are pared-back and simple, and form and function are combined to create aesthetically pleasing but practical interiors. also inspired by light, having an abundance of it in summer but so little of it in winter and Scandinavians tend to maximize the amount of natural light that enters their homes, making the most of outdoor life during the summer. Similarly, nature and the weather are major influences: homes are made warm and cozy for the freezing winter months—not just literally with log burners, but also through incorporating wood and natural materials. the Scandinavian home shares an abundance of these beautiful homes and explores how the Scandinavian lifestyle is reflected in them all — from minimalist to bohemian, and pale palettes to dramatic dark colors. here’s a sneak peek of some of my favorite images from this beautiful book.
