Taking Inspiration from This Effortlessly Stylish Home

, , , , , , , , By Catherine


Another day, another great Scandinavian home! And just like yesterday, I am showing you a beautiful and small apartment that is big on style. I really enjoyed virtually touring this place, and I am sure you will too.

Here are five things to notice in this lovely home and why it works:

  1. The effortless mix of of high and low design. Here designer chairs and lamps are combined with more affordable furniture and decorative accents from IKEA. This is a great way to make a home look stylish and personal. I personally recommend splurging on a few distinctive items that make a statement which you’ll likely keep for a long time, while shopping on the high-street for accessories that are trendy e.g. if you must have a trend-based, seasonal items.
  2. Unexpected touches, like the pink pendant above the dining table or the unique combination or prints, also add lots of personality and character.
  3. Lots of textures – Mixing accents like rugs, throws, or accent cushions in different materials is the easiest way to make a room feel interesting and alive. Make sure there is enough contrast between shiny, matt, light, dark, distressed, and polished.
  4. Most doors were removed, making the place feel more spacious and airy.
  5. To help natural light flow into the space, a window was added on the wall between the bedroom and the kitchen.
