Let’s get real: Do you like Scandinavian?
Because I kind of love it, at least in certain instances. I’m glad that my intern Christelle has a fashion-forward Scandinavian-meets-Victorian aesthetic, because it allows us to test different styles around here once in a while, that I may adopt on MyDomaine, but never on Savvy Home (at least until now). Take it away Christelle! And let us know what you think of the monochrome Scandinavian look in the comments below.
Scandinavian aesthetics are an endless source of inspiration, even for maximalist advocates like myself. There is something soothing about a monochromatic edited space to nest in during the long northern winters.
If a minimal decor will not always feel warm or homely, this luminous and crystalline home certainly defeats such presumptions. A rustic vibe definitely exudes from the clean lines as every piece of furniture seems to have been carefully handpicked, from the artisanal day-bed in the living room, wicker chairs, a macramé wall-hanging or cozy throws placed in every room.
Suspended elements such as lamp fixtures and a mobile add an airy feeling to the whole space, tying it together nicely. Subtle metallic accents elevate the boho-chicvibe—speaking of which, have you noticed the mismatched bedside tables, or the three-set coffee table? Such perfectly imperfect details add up to other endearing elements such as the off-centered frame in the bedroom, the sparse gallery walls, the piles of books left around or in-progress art crafting—and what is more fabulous than this black and white tile floor in the immense kitchen? What do you love the most about this Scandinavian home?
