I love Scandi

I love Scandi


I am in love with everything Scandi.  This love has lasted too long to be a passing phase or short crush.  It started with the discovery at work of the most gorgeous Jab fabric books from their ‘Four Seasons’ collection.


It has culminated this evening in my delving into why Scandi style is so appealing.  I have delved via my google search engine and now have the means to live happily ever after scandi style....

First I must buy my very own Scandi –style cabin as found at www.mydecom (Scandy cabin 4.2 x 4.2)

Scandy Log Cabin 4.2x4.2m
  

Of course it’s not totally the real thing...

 ...but not far off

Next I must decorate my Scandy house's interior in Jab – yes, for me it must be Jab

From the ‘Four Seasons’ collection, as seen below.  Do not question why;

just take it from me: you will be happy.

I might not be able to resist papering one room or a wall of one room, say the kitchen, in this gorgeous ‘Penguin Green’; £40.00 for a 10 metre length roll @ www.scandiliving.com






Furniture-wise it has to be a design classic............


       
      
                                       With iconic design in the form of  Hans Wegner’s wishbone chair
  



And why not the following.................





Designed by Matthias Sรถderberg




With lighting courtesy of


In the form of no less than a Moomin light fitting

Moomin lamp - Moomin - Muurla
and another design classic:                     PH Artichoke by Louis Poulsen




                                                      Or perhaps the ‘Norm 69’ lampshade




Having maxed out on these things I might have to work some high street magic ......






      


With a few bits and pieces from

My guilty pleasure ...........

                                                                  




I will however buy everything from the Huset shop; ‘HUSET’ meaning ‘the house’ at www.huset-shop.com . Why wouldn’t you looking at these scandilicious examples below:

Lotta Kuhlhorn Eva Tea Towels
Gustavsberg Salix Coffee Cup and Saucer    Camilla Engdahls Arla Birds                                Gustavsberg Blue and Red Aster Coffee Cup                           



Lovely










A few essentials from  Skandium  www.skandium.com  would see me through

Such as this Puutarhurin parhaat plywood tray by Marimekko


Marimekko can now be found at John Lewis www.johnlewis.com  so if I decide I can’t live without it I might also opt for this Kippis Wallpaper in Black/White




Pretty accessories like these are a must for tying presents for friends or simply because I need a flash of prettiness attached to a wooden heart or picture courtesy of ‘gertie & mabel’

Rustic Charm Ribbon

Check out www.gertie&mabel.co.uk
for accessories




www.nordichouse.co.uk  will cater for any more whims, providing candles for my endless evenings
be it winter or summer

.......................................................................................................................................................................
    
Because I would want to go for long walks through the snow-laden trees when the long winter comes, I will have to by myself the archetypal scandi sweater; not the christmas knit for me but a chic nordic number.

And since it would be rude not to, I will buy one too for Daniel Craig (rumoured to soon be Blomvkist in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) who of course I will ask to be my nordic lover.


I always say, if you’re going to do something you might as well do it properly.............
