Earlier in the week I promised you details about the work in progress around here. We've come a long way in Project Empty Nest and up next are the living room and dining room. But here's how my Scandinavian Fantasy, which kind of sounds like it's going to include someone named Sven, is playing out in my Southern 1960s Colonial. I actually decorated and then found these photos to go with this blog post. I was even surprised at how many elements I hit without much research. Sometimes you just know.
All white bedding.
Peg racks. The most functional thing ever invented. The traditional dala horse I picked up in Stockholm.
I found this pillow at Home Goods and it was screaming at me to bring it home. A traditional Scandinavian design is below. Total accident but I loved the graphic bird and pop of orange.
Galvanized metal and painted furniture. Painted furniture being my favorite thing, naturally!
Painted china cabinet: check. Though I'm using mine in the bedroom to hold accessories.
Graphic art in a recycled frame. Through the letters you can see a map of Helsinki, below on the sign I made.
