Cosy vintage

The informal charm of this home comes from a mixture of brightly painted objects, distinctive floral prints and antique style textiles paired with your personal mementos. A linen-covered sofa is the springboard for this vintage-inspired living-room. Thrift shop finds and homemade items sit alongside antiques and retro-chic reproductions, creating a casual and eclectic look. The contrast of mixed (rather than matching) chairs define the dining room and create a simple elegance infused with rustic warmth.

Light pastels & airy whites

Whites make up the neutral backdrop for vintage pastels, giving your home a delicate and airy feel. Whether working from a palette of pinks, yellows, turquoise, blues or reds, the colours are repeated all over - from small accessories to flea market finds. 100% natural fabrics are the very essence of Scandinavian Country style. To get that authentic vintage-inspired interior look, choose linens and cottons in a variety of textures. Floral prints are always a part of the Scandinavian Country home but be sure to make some room too for informal and breezy stripes and checks to add character and cosiness. Once you’ve got the hang of the Scandinavian Country look, your home will exude an enchanting sense of rustic luxury sure to make everyone feel immediately welcome.
