Discover classic and contemporary Scandinavian style with specially commissioned photography of homes in Denmark Norway Sweden and Finland Scandinavia is famous for its distinctive style homes are pared back and simple and form and function are combined to create aesthetically pleasing and practical interiors Scandinavians are inspired by light having an abundance of it in summer but so little of it in winter and house designs tend to maximize the amount of natural light that enters the home and allow the inhabitants to make the most of outdoor life during the summer Similarly nature and the weather are major influences homes are made warm and cozy for the freezing winter monthsnot just literally with log burners but also through incorporating wood and natural materials Here Niki Brantmark owner of the interior design blog My Scandinavian Home presents a wide ranging collection of these beautiful homes and explores how the Scandinavian lifestyle is reflected in them all The first chapter Urban Living features styles ranging from minimalist to bohemian and pale palettes to dramatic dark colors By contrast the Country Homes tend to have a softer calmer feel through color and textiles in line with a slower pace of life Finally the spectacular Rural Retreats include a mountain cabin beach house and rustic summer cottage and demonstrate how having somewhere to escape to is so important to many Scandinavians This collection of stunning interiors will put Scandi style within every readers reach
