I'm a sucker for those Scandinavian, Nordic Real Estate websites showcasing beautifully styled homes in lovely period properties, and I'm a regular visitor to the Alvhem website to check out the latest beautifully styled apartments, (I'm convinced somewhere in my family history we have some Scandinavian ancestors, I'm just so drawn to this style) and get some inspiration for my own home, and I'm checking out what is available closer to home in order to create the look, so I've been busy making this little mood board using some items from  the one with that catchy tune.

The Essentials for a Scandinavian look.

A period property (ideal but not essential)
Bare floorboards (or fake it) 
White walls
Lots of natural light
Mix old with new pieces
Big sumptuous bed
Mixed fabrics in linen, and furs
A touch of industrial lighting.

Okay so you might not be lucky enough to have the period property or bare floorboards, but you can still achieve a pretty good look none the less.  Keep the colour palette simple, whites neutral and greys mixed with natural materials such as woods, linens, furs, textured throws and velvets.  Mix old and new together such as an old set of draws or a bureau,   add a splash of industrial with clamp lamps and concrete plant pots, place a ladder against the wall and use it to hang your favourite party dress on and some fashion magazines and you're about done!
