Decorating Scandinavian Style
Living in Denmark, I have been trying to incorporate a few pieces to obtain a "scandinavian" feel in our apartment - and I think this bookshelf does just that :)
So, how do you get a Scandinavian look?
Simplicity is key with a dose of "hygge"...a popular danish word (pronounced "hooga") which means the feeling of coziness. From the few weeks of living here, I've noticed the Danes love to incorporate fresh greenery, a source of wood, candles (real ones, no fake flames here), and a soft element with texture. Basically, everything that gives you hygge :)
As styling is a process, I found a few inspirational pieces to keep my decorating in the right direction until I complete the final look :)
Shop the look:
I love the simplicity of this stylish lamp and recently purchased it for the bookcase! :)
As the weather in the Scandinavian area is mostly cloudy, people decorate with a variety of plants to bring freshness + life within their home. These vine plants would look great cascading down the steel bookcase :)
4. Brass Tray
There is no denying that brass is the latest trend. This tray would look great on the shelf with a nice candle sitting on top :)
5. Cozy Candle
You can never have too many candles, in my opinion :) Adding this to the shelf will create a cozy mood when lit.
Personal photos look even better when displayed in an attractive frame ;)
I love, love these tasseled planter baskets! You can use them for plants or for storage - super cute.
The wooden figures are a Danish tradition when gifting for weddings, newborns etc. Created by the late Danish designer, Kay Bojesen, the wooden figures are still a sought after gift + decor element.
