Is your living space in need of a little update? A little something to make you feel excited about your interiors again? Do you gush over those amazing Scandinavian interior shots on Instagram and have a full folder with inspo pics on Pinterest? We have put together a few simple tips to give your home a little love.
1. Add some teak Every mid-century home features teak in some way or the other. Gorgeous wooden floors and amazing shelves as well as simple accessories. We love our Lydia candle holders for an easy and quick way to infuse your space with some mid-century flair: Available in brass or teak they are just gorgeous whether on their own or in use for a lovely winter dinner.
2. Update your blanket and cushions. Scandinavian style focuses on functionality and one of our favourite updates is a new blanket and matching cushions for the centrepiece of most homes – a comfortable couch. Not only do they look great, they will get used a lot as well. We have an amazing selection of high quality blankets available –our Don Collection is aptly named after Don Draper from Mad Men (that’s original mid century style right there).
3. Give gifts that last a lifetime Scandinavian design celebrates the craftsmanship and quality of every item in your home. We love seeing our gorgeous little elephants by Lucie Kaas in Baby nurseries. The elephant was designed by mid-century designer Gunnar Florning in the early 60s and has been relaunched by Danish design company Lucie Kaas. They make a life time friend for little people – first they look gorgeous on the nursery shelf, they are sturdy and beautiful playmates and we love them on our own shelves, so you know they will end up as a gorgeous reminder of a fun childhood.
