Scandi Vibes

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

By placing greenery or even white washing the walls,  your pad can transform into the new-aged Scandinavian metropolis. Everything is minimal and  rugged by using mixed natural materials such as wood and fur. Be closer to the earth by having just a mattress on the floor. These people that suit these living arrangements are relaxed, happy beings, so if this is something you feel is missing form your life, it’s time to have a re-deisgn.

Trend alert- botanical touches

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

Keep your interior alive with this oh so chic trend. DIY’s, small accessories or a whole room refresh; this trend is so easy to bring through in any interior. A great home-made touch is pressed flowers within a clear frame, this brings the outdoors in without fear of upkeep and watering every day (a lazy designers dream). As well as looking stylish this DIY will add a modern twist to your space and can bring through the botanical trend without a complete overhaul. If DIY is just not your thing then why not pop a simple botany print up on the wall, old school nature diagrams look stylish and interesting. To add to this scientific trend, bring in glassware and touches of gold to really set off the style. This trend fits perfectly with a scandi interior or one based with white which you can read more about in our previous post “Paint The Town White”. So whether you go out on a country yomp for some inspiration or just head down to your nearest interiors store, make sure to add some botanical to your summer interior.

Focus On Palm Print


Palm leaf pattern is everywhere; stationary, wallpaper, décor and even crockery. So its no surprise that I had to look a little deeper into this trend to find the best inspiration for an interior uplift. H&M home has devoted an entire collection to the palm leaves pattern which includes curtains, cushions and natural fabrics to compliment the print. This is great for anyone who already has a cream or neutral base to their room, and wants to spice it up to be on trend and look fresh. However, if you really want to push the boat out you could try a feature wall of this printed wallpaper from Lemon, specifically their Botany collection. This will add impact to your space and look really stunning with brass accessories and other natural shades. Palm leaf pattern has come a long way since the likes of a colonial interior and I don’t see any signs of it slowing down.



Bring the inside out

Switch it up this summer and take design outside! Making the most of your outdoor space will make those long warm evenings that little bit more special. Adding patterned cushions, throws and dining accessories will give a bohemian feel which would compliment any exterior space. Using a mis mash of new and found furniture, it will bring the look together and will be easy to add new pieces as the seasons change. Try these beautiful printed cushions from H&M Home for an instant outdoor facelift or push it further with up-cycled tables and chairs.


Trend Alert- Marble everything!

Any avid Instagrammer will have noticed the influx of marble interiors and styling shots. The natural material has fast become one of the most stylish features for any interior, bringing a cool and sophisticated feel. Marble can be expensive when used in large quantities but if its just a small touch of style you want to add to your space, why not try smaller items such as pots or coasters.

DIY concrete plant pots


To prevent plants from falling through, squish or glue (concrete adhesive) wire mesh/chicken wire into bottom of the cinder block holes. This would look great in a small city garden, adding an accent colour of red to your dull outdoor space. This is contemporary and modern and ideal to use as a table.


City showers


We may live in one of the busiest cities in the World but it doesn’t mean that one can’t shower close to nature. These examples both have open spaces around them but allows them to have privacy in such an intense city like London. Having plants within your space makes your experience fresher and more relaxing. With the help of recess windows, your bath time can be light, peaceful and happier.

Inspiration of the day:



Conservatories are so inviting and this is exactly where I want to be on evenings. Now that daylight is getting longer, these warm, light space bubbles are the perfect hideout. I love the webbed backing to the chair, dressed with moroccan pillows and sheepskin hides. The patterns are subtle with accents of blue, red and yellow. The plants allow the accent colour of green to be within the scheme. This neutral blend is textures with soft woods, soft wool and cotton.


Dream of destinations like this, as I am..>!
