Styling for a Scandanavian-Inspired Space

Scandinavian design is characterized by simplicity, minimalism, and functionality. Beautiful and functional everyday objects are highlighted and work seamlessly with one another. Achieveing the Scandanavian look with these unique style elements.

1. Gallery Wall

Create a focus wall with some simple but elegant pieces and hang matching frames in a curated but eclectic way. Be sure to keep them evenly spaced so it doesn't look messy.

2. Teal Accents

Mismatched accent chairs look fabulous together with their matching teal upholstery. Use this bright colour as inspiration for other elements in the room like the accent light with its teal glass base and the layered holiday rug.

3. White Furniture

A white sofa, accent table and tree stump pull together the Scandinavian look. What could seem cold and stark is warmed up with varying finishes. Mirror, wood, and woven sea grass keeps the space feeling warm and cozy.

Erin's Top Tree Decorating Tips

1. Don't Set Up the Tree

Leave the set up to someone else! It can be quite stressful, so have the tree set up by a professional, or your husband and leave yourself with only the the decorating to do.

2. Keep It Easy

This is a tree in a box that Erin has custom designed through Korani Home.The base pallet is neutral, so you can change the colours with the changing trends. The cobalt blue balls are on trend this year and can be easily replaced by any other colour

3. Work With Your Decor, Not Against It

Match the tree to your decor. The crisp white accents in this room and the teal chairs were the inspiration for the holiday colour pallet. Keeping everything fairly monochromatic gives this space an air of sophistication.

4. Add in Personal Touches

Tuck some fresh branches into your tree for some great aromatics. The smell of the holidays always brings back great memories, so tuck some fresh sprigs into your fake tree for a bit of nostalgia. Wrap empty boxes with your favorite papers and scatter them around the room. This is just about getting some of your favorite pieces and patterns out during the holiday season.
