Scandinavian Fresh

I love Scandinavian design. It is a simple, clean minimalism that has an understated elegance. I came across some interiors that reflect this freshness with a mix of French and Belgian elements. Check out Sophie’s Bed and Breakfast in Møn, Denmark.

Natural elements like sheepskins and antlers along with muted earthy tones reflect the Scandinavian connection to the outdoors.

La couleur de l’été … CHARTREUSE!

La couleur de l’été …  CHARTREUSE! The color of summer is bright, modern and vibrant. How could it be anything other than chartreuse? This lemon lime hue emanates sunshine.

Chartreuse can be used for a subtle pop of color on a accent wall or piece of furniture.

Hints of black on the piping of furniture or pillows, or art framed in black offers a balanced contrast to chartreuse adding surprise and sophistication without being over the top.*

This citrus hue works beautifully with so many other tones. Chartreuse is so fresh, so happy so airy and filled with tons of energy.**

Chartreuse pairs naturally with neutrals, such as gray or tan. It is a playful, vibrant color that adds excitement to a tired scheme or one that needs a suggestion of light shining through a window.***
