Scandinavia

Spring Decorating via Skona hem

Last Monday, I featured a Scandinavian designer and it looks like, quite by accident (well almost), I am back in the land of Swedish goodness. I'm sure many of you love the Swedish magazine, Skona hem...what's not to love? If you haven't checked it out...you should. Can't understand a word but the images are breathtaking!

I was drawn to this article about re-decorating for Spring, using what you have. I love the creative ideas and the colors are so fresh!

How gorgeous is this floral head board? It's made from MDF board and covered with fabric! Instant garden in your bedroom!

Simple Ikea lights and glass shelves make the blooming background functional.

This whimsical arrangement was made using wire and colored paper. So pretty and that cobalt blue paint is rather stunning!

Little vintage doorknobs make for an instant jewelry display...

and this re-finished vintage chair couldn't have more personality!

Remember to use Google Translate if you actually want to understand this fabulous magazine. I'm seriously considering learning Swedish.

Hope your Monday is going smoothly!

Designer Love: Lisa Bengtsson

I'm not sure why Scandinavian designers are so darn fabulous...but they are. There's no denying it. One of my favorites is the very talented Lisa Bengtsson. Her bold, fearless textiles are amazing! Incorporating a myriad of patterns and vintage images is no easy feat, but Lisa masters it beautifully. I have been drooling over her work via her website. Definitely worth checking out, but be warned, unless you are fluent in Swedish, you won't be able to understand a word. Using my little friend, Google Translate, helps me cheat.

Eclectic and glamorous, just one of her pillows in your favorite chair is sure to be a conversation starter and guess what? You can buy her gorgeous designs here in the US via Huset! (My new fav online shop).

Thank you Scandinavia! We love you!

Happy Shopping!
