my scandinavian home: Lookbook inspiration: Scandic design in winter

Lookbook inspiration: Scandic design in winter

Tuesday, 20 October 2015

Here in Sweden it's getting darker in the mornings (read - impossible to get up), candles are lit and my woolly hat and chunky knits are officially out. It's at this point I start to get excited about the winter months ahead. I've started to see a hint of the festive season in the shops too and done right, it's kind of exciting, don't you think? One of the first out is designer furniture and homeware store Houseology who have several new ranges and a brand new Christmas collection. The items are presented in a series of three lookbooks (chic, luxe and urban) which capture the spirit of the season. Here's a sneak peek from the Urban lookbook which focuses on the 'simplicity of Scandic design in winter' (we like!). Think cool and contemporary, pared back, industrial materials, iconic designs and striking mid-century furnishings in a palette of monochrome, blush and brass. Perfect inspiration for the winter months to come, wouldn't you say?!


I love how the candlelight, blankets and cushions warm up the look for a cosy feel.  And how pretty are the Fabeo Cable Cushion, Murmur stem stripe cushions and Elvan zigzag throw against the concrete backdrop?

A few items I know and love: Normann Copenhagen knot chair, Ercols original butterfly chair, white porcelain star, Etch tealight holder, antique brass knife (really liking the brass cutlery trend for AW15). Everything you see in the pics can be found at Houseology (you can also check out the links directly from the Urban lookbook and get inspiration from the 'Luxe' lookbook for a winter scheme with a touch of Parisian glamour!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Have a lovely day - and stay cosy!

  1. Amazing that a pared back industrial look can translate to such a warm feel. I can already tell that the look books are going to be very dangerous for me!

  2. For several years in fashion are " cold Christmas" in white, black and gray. Personally I like contrasts and miss here only maroon. Very modern inspirations :)
