“I would say most people assume that I’m not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I’m sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me. It makes me laugh because I’ve done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from beginning to end you can see that I’m not your typical music video model.” ~Megan Fox stuns for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia’s latest issue | Photographed by John Russo.
There’s a reason why Scandinavian interiors never go out of style. They just make you feel good. For me, that’s the marker of a great room—its ability to change and uplift your mood. Every scandinavian-inspired space that I’ve been in or seen, instantly made me feel more calm and content. So in honour of one of my favorite design styles, I thought I’d put together different ways by which you can get the look:
Balance: Notice how in the first photo, the room still looks serene despite the bold rug. This is achieved by pairing such a choice with subdued elements.
Play with Texture: While the color schemes in scandinavian spaces are usually pretty uniform, the textures used vary quite a bit. Don’t be afraid to mix faux fur, cotton, knit and crochet all together!
A Touch (or a tonne!) of Black and White: There’s something so stylish yet timeless about black and white!
Gallery Wall: A gallery wall is a great way to inject personality into your home and to show off things you love. Include posters of your favorite movies, travel photos or quirky prints!
Mis-matched Dining Chairs: Add interest to your dining area bymis-matching your dining chairs for a look that’s less catalogue.
Add Color via Accessories: Keep a subdued color palette and add pops of color via artwork, textiles, small furnishings or an accent wall.
Mix Old & New: Scandinavian spaces are known for their mix of modern and vintage elements so don’t be afraid to combine more expensive pieces with your Craigslist findings!
