A friend and her husband have just moved into a new apartment, airy and bright and complete with a white brick fireplace. Their last place came furnished, I should mention, so they are starting almost from scratch in their new home. She has a great eye and loves a clean, Scandi sort of feel, with soothing neutrals and lots of plants. Since I love pulling together a space, here are some of the ideas I’ve floated her way.
Mid-century and Scandinavian pieces in a mix of wood tones with neutral-colored textiles give a collected feel while still soothing the eye. A variety of textures (caning, tufting, leather, jute) keep things just interesting enough. Add a tonal rug that skews somewhere between traditional and beachy California cool, and you’ve got a layered space ready to relax in. Maybe try stacking some beautiful design books on the coffee table? With an equally beautiful candle? (Here’s one to try.) And don’t forget tons of planters and vases to bring in ALL the greenery.
Since they have so much to buy all at once, I tried to skew on the end of readily available and relatively inexpensive, without sacrificing beauty and function (looking at you, sofa and leather pouf — swoon). Enjoy!
