Amongst my excellent birthday presents this year was this book, which in turn introduced me to the blog My Scandinavian Home. It’s set me off on a bit of a Scandi tip.

Now, I’ve never actually been (but am longing to visit Stockholm having read how child-friendly it is – any tips most welcome), but I don’t need to visit to know how super-stylish those Scandis are. First up: interiors. (Come back later for a how-to get the Scandi streetstyle look.)The Interiors

You know, ones like this…

The gorgeously styled Nordic House is a one-stop shop for this look. There is much inspiration to be had here (it’s worth a look for the styling alone). Quite honestly, it is one of those sites which had me ooing and ahing and coveting everything. (I also have a sneaky suspicion my mum will love it, bookmark it, and nudge my father towards it cometh her birthday…)
