After a summer of visitors, big kids coming and going, boyfriends, girlfriends and the general chaos of a busy household, to say our home is starting to look a little shabby around the edges is an understatement. Aesthetically I have always been inspired by the simple stripped back style of Scandinavian decoration. I'm somehow always intrinsically drawn to those raw essentials of bleached floorboards, natural linens, rustic timber, and eclectic finds from around the globe, and the list goes on.  So, I hope you don't mind whilst I indulge in a little musing of how to recreate this look in our very 'un shabby chic' home right now!

linen bedding will cool you down when it's hot and warm you up when it's chilly. Get closer to the nature...

Bathroom with epic large mirror

Definitely looking for a white linen duvet cover when we've recovered from Christmas. Apparently, absolutely fantastic in the summer.

I lope making hallways and entries interesting and the simplicity of this oversized mirror and natural fabrics, sings to me!
Oversized coffee table; I'll probably end up finding someone to make my own design from old wood

  1. So many beautiful pieces! My brther lives in Denmark and he and his wife have their decor just like this. It's just normal to them and comes easy without trying. Me however, to achieve the look would be pondering for hours!

  2. so cute pics; -))

    i invite to me too

  3. Love this decoration, so pure :) Bisous from France, Sand.

  4. I wish my house look even half as good! I'm rubbish at decorating, every time I visit shops like Habitat or John Lewis home department, I panic- there is too much to chose from and I normally leave empty handed :)

  5. I can never quite decide if it's this rustic Scandinavian look I'm into or the more stripped back minimalist look I love more. Seeing these photographs I think it must be the more rustic look I've been going for at home.

    Have you seen @frustilista on Instagram? One of the photos you've posted is from her house, it's really beautiful, xx


  6. Beautiful photos, I can never get enough of home inspo photos and I'm looking to freshen things up a bit too.
