Room of the Week

November 20, 2013

It’s just over a month until we start to enjoy our Christmas activities and a large part of the season often involves enjoying a meal with family and friends around your dining table. This is now the time to start preparing and deciding on your decoration, are you a traditionalist or do you prefer a different contemporary look?

If you want to go contemporary this year you could take some inspiration from this Scandinavian style room. The styling in this room is perfect if you are trying to recreate the look of a Swedish or Norwegian dining room, I love it! The use of natural materials is very typical of the area, you can usually find some lovely natural wood featuring in many Scandi interiors.

Simple furniture is seen in Scandinavian style interiors. You don’t need to crowd the space, just allow the design and beauty of the furniture to stand out. Bench seating works really well with a crowd of people, and you can then supplement this seating with stools. Folklore, based in North London, is a great source of this type of furniture that suits a Scandinavian interior. The Ink stool is a personal favourite due to its simple design and detail. Made from Ash the legs are dyed using squid ink.

When you have your seating sorted you need to source the accessories to dress your Christmas table. Nordic House has one of the best ranges of items if you are looking for a Scandinavian or Nordic look. Metallic votives and candle holders add a very special look to any dining table. I also really love the tall hurricane which gives off a soft glow when filled with a candle.

This room was originally featured in the extensive galleries of House to Home. Take a look over at their website for room inspiration, and be sure to check back here every week to find which one of the rooms has been showcased.

    Love the scandinavian style blog, the stag antlers look wonderful with fairy lights too. Thought it may be worth a mention we can make our rustic antler lights in WHITE or black too. Here’s a link for your reference http://www.lightingcompany.co.uk/ceiling-lights-c3/lighting-for-barns-and-high-ceilings-c20/the-david-hunt-lighting-collection-emperor-stag-ceiling-light-p2135
