Nordisk Hvitt – Winter White

Outside my window

Outside my window

The landscape outside my window is cold and wintry white. The combination of the brilliant white and the natural wood is reminiscent of the beautiful Nordic Style. It encompasses simple, warm and natural elements reflective of the chilly landscapes of Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Sweden.

The Nordic Style of interior design incorporates a minimalistic approach (hence, the all white color) with a rustic naturalness (furs, light wood and basic elements).

The use of soft organic linens with striking white textiles reflects the Nordic Style’s inspiration: nature in winter.

Natural fiber rugs and natural linen textiles along with a striking brilliant white reflect the snow-capped barren trees found in my own back yard!

The simple character of the Nordic Style, the lightness of textiles and woods exudes an airy minimal quality. It works well with modern touches.

The Nordic Style of capturing the ruggedness of winter and the brilliant white of snow has inspired me to reflect the Nordisk Hvitt in my own home…

I hope my reflection on the Nordisk Hvitt (Winter White) of the Nordic Style of interior design has inspired you. I encourage you to mix things up and make your home reflect the season and landscape around you. Have a creative Winter White day!

It’s Beginning to look a lot like…SUMMER, designer style!

As summer fast approaches, I find myself dreaming of one day being able to decorate my own summer lake house. In the meantime, I’m enjoying getting ideas from beautifully decorated summer homes. I especially adore Interior designer Sarah Richardson. She transformed her Canadian island cottage into a relaxing space with rustic charm.
