my scandinavian home: 10 Monday Mix and match

10 Monday Mix and match

Monday, 30 April 2012

Sometimes renovating my home feels like a complicated puzzle and some pieces simply won't fit. I've been scratching my head over the dining table and chairs for ages. Should they be a set of Eames? Wegner? IKEA? A simple rough wooden bench? And then my friend Sofia came over at the weekend and suggested a complete mix. YEEEESSSS!! It's so much easier to find a vintage bargain of just one piece too. Here's my inspiration.....I can't wait to get started!











I found all of these lovely pictures on Pinterest. And I feel incredibly guilty that just for the next couple of hours I'm going to have to credit them through my 'Fine Dining' board. But as soon as I find a quiet moment (I am at home with my two little girls this morning who are 3 and 1!) I promise to come back and credit each photo. 

See you shortly and Happy Monday!

  1. Perfect way forward for the kitchen in my opinion. Very personal and dynamic. The kitchen is also here in change at our house and I just need to convince my man to have this mix as well. I am sure it will look great!

    Have a nice day together with your girls!

  3. I've been thinking of doing the same. But the idea of stools in the mix had never even occurred to me- thanks!

  5. I love the mixes! Has a classic home feel. In the photos I love seems little POPS of red ... like in the pendant lamp cord, chair legs, heart of wall ... I love them!!!

  6. I love mixed chairs on a kitchen or dining room table, it definitely ups the cozyness and adds a personal touch!

  7. I bet you will agree with my idea about furniture... the more they are rustic-looking while having the clean look, the more they get pricier. but these furniture are rare. i can hardly find one while strolling in the mall.

    1. You're absolutely right Maya. I think what it takes is hours and hours searching flea markets (early in the morning!). Or braving it on the auction sites (more expoensive though).
