Recently I have come across so many blogs that showcase beautiful Scandinavian homes and each home is more striking then the next. Often the rooms are all white from floor to ceiling, complemented with black accents and gorgeous mid-century furniture. I am so smitten by this Scandi chic look that last night I told my husband it was time to re-decorate our living room and draw from this style but with our own personal touch. In my excitement I even showed him all the images I had been collecting. He agreed but then quickly burst my bubble by pointing out the elephant in the room – the carpet. To really achieve the look I’m after we need wooden floors but living in a period flat with a 4 year old, that just isn’t an option. The noise would drive the couple below us insane! While I know he’s right I can’t help but mourn the living room of my dreams. So for now I’ll have to make do by fueling my love for all things Scandinavian by sharing more Scandi decor with you and today I’ve turned to an old favourite with a wonderful new Spring Summer 2013 collection.
If you haven’t already guessed, this is the new collection by Ferm Living. Always chic, always minimal this new line is right up my street. I love the use of lots of black and white with pops of bold colour. That half moon wallpaper would fit like in a dream in my imaginary living room. As I’ve come to expect with Ferm living, most of their pieces aren’t age or gender specific like those bolsters that would be fun in any space. And that play tent, with it’s black and white stripes and hint of neon orange wouldn’t be an eyesore if your kids decided to camp out in the living room. There’s a lot more to this new Ferm Living collection including some cool wall stickers like the ones pictured below.
