inspired by : scandinavian details

posted on: Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Have you been hankering after a fresh yet lived-in Scandinavian style for the wee one? Then you may want to start with a neutral palette of all white -- including the floors -- or pale grey. Next step: create areas for little collections to live.

Strategically placed statement pieces can create a feeling of flow in a space that may otherwise seem mismatched. Here (above) the globe lamp gives a visual lead to the collection of neatly hung family photos while the bright felt garland draws the eye up toward the warmth and light of the window.
Use washi tape to gather a grouping of pretty postcards and snapshots alongside a string of simple lantern lights.
Kiddo-made collections are often the most individual and colourful. Transform a stark space by adding a gallery of your little one's creations.

Wee one fixated on one fave? You may want to frame their collections and add informative wall art of the same theme (like the butterfly chart above the bed).

If you're starting out with a nursery that hasn't been lived in yet, complimentary colour and fabric details (bunting, wall paint, tablecloth) are the easiest way to add fun while maintaining a uniform feel.
