Minmalism is not the lack of something. It’s simply the perfect amount of something.
I love Scandinavian design; the clean lines, the organic feel, the simplicity. This weekend I had the house to myself so I gave the home a makeover inspired by my new book The Scandinavian Home.
Scandinavian design is minimalistic and serene. The idea is to create light in the home by using pale, neutral colours (like white, grey, pale blues and greens). Short days in winter are perfect for creating a warm environment with different sources of light: candles and lamps, windows with light weight shades and curtains to invite natural light in. Bright overhead/ceiling lights are a no no. An organic feel is created by using natural materials like wood, faux furs, cotton and touches of nature; plants, stones, pine cones can be collected on nature walks and placed on shelves or in bowls as a centerpiece.
This is what I did
