My home: dining area make-over

Last week I gave my home dining space a bit of a make-over with a lick of paint and some beautiful items from the Danish brand Nordal. Although Nordal's been around a long time, I only recently discovered the shop - and what a find! It's a family business which started when the father (Ingolf) fell in love with beautiful old Indian furniture. These days Nordal designs and sells a wide range of their very own beautiful pieces, while being careful to keep the original Nordal DNA. Anyway, I'm in love, and now I have a calm space at home to enjoy long brunches with family and friends! I hope you like it too!

What do you think?

I can't tell you how long I've been looking for a nice colour for the back wall. Thanks to Gen's recommendation, I finally settled on ALCRO fjäder which I mixed with a sand additive (Roll-A-Tex) for a more textured / lively finish. And I love it!

Here's a low down of other items in my dining area:

 1. dinner plate  2. cake plate 3. cup 4. tea pot 5. soup bowl  6. Chopping board 7. Cutlery 8. pure linen napkins  9. pure linen table cloth 10. glass bottle

The pure linen tablecloth and napkins are so fab! I was so excited when I received them that I've gone and organised a give-away here on instagram so you can win your own set! It only takes a second or two to enter (open until Friday 22nd July, 2016).

Sponsored post -  this post was made possible by Nordal. All words and thoughts are my own and I only ever work with products and services I truly love and think you will too! Thank you for supporting the brands that make My Scandinavian Home possible!


  1. Just beautiful Nikki. Looks so cosy and inviting.

    1. Thanks Britt! It's always nerve racking posting my own pictures so I'm so happy and relieved you like them! X

  2. Niki, this looks amazing! Great job with the photography!! And Genevieve did a beautiful job with the styling!

  3. This is lovely... It's just a shame that Nordal's website doesn't have a good enough customer UX to make it easy to buy the products you feature! They lost a sale in me... :(

    1. Such a shame you were having issues with the site. So frustrating! I'm curious to know which item you were after? I have to say I'm so happy with them so it's worth another shot!

  4. Cool wall, absolutely love the nordal items, understated and timeless.

  5. So beautiful. I love the white dinnerware and I drooled when I saw the close-up of the wall paint. All thubms up!

  6. That's gorgeous Niki! Great work :)

  7. I LOVE this! I'd love to know where your rug is from! I'm sad I can't get those dishes in the US :(

  8. Such a lovely room..very inspiring(and beautiful) All the best, Chrissy
