Interior Inspiration: Scandi Chic

Small but perfectly formed, I love the colour scheme in this Stockholm apartment. The furniture has been kept in black, white and grey tones and beautiful pastels are added through cushions, pictures and books. Framed posters are a great way to incorporate stunning art works into your interior design scheme without breaking the bank. And the Swedish ‘kakelugn’ (fireplace) in the last picture is the Pièce de résistance in my humble opinion.

Interior Inspiration: Cool Kids Rooms

I have just spent an hour or so looking at kids rooms on Pinterest – funny how time flies when you’re on there, I always keep thinking, just one more pin! It’s so addictive..

I would love to incorporate some of these ideas into my own children’s rooms. At the moment, most of my planned house projects are on hold as the layout may change with our planned building work, which is taking far too long to come to fruition for my liking. Hopefully we will do our extension before they are all teenagers and have firm opinions of their own on what they want!
