Can you guess what people living in the Nordic countries eagerly wait for after January? Well summer of course! And it is finally here! Welcome the long, bright days, happy faces on the streets, outdoor events, moscuito bites and barbeque nights. Life in the Nordics during summer months is the best thing! If you are spending your summer in the city, do not worry! Nature is ALWAYS around, and that is why it makes a huge part of the culture & identity. Elements of nature, wellbeing, simplicity & cosyness is what characterizes nordic home decor & the people.
Nordic home decor | Cosyness & elements from nature
When it comes to styling nordic homes, we like to invite nature in. Which means using wood or ceramic objects in different shapes & sizes, as well as other materials that breathe, feel soft, safe and have that cosyness. Cotton, linen & leather are our top picks! Another trend in nordic home decor is being mindfull of the environment. Using recycled products & vintage pieces that tell stories is a great way to add uniqueness in to your home while being ecological.
Nordic lifestyle & living is all about a balance between work and everyday life. Homes are people’s safe havens, where family and loved ones are gathered together.
