Scandi-style for your living room

If you’ve been glued to BBC4 on a Saturday night for several weeks at a time or your Sky+ box is near capacity with the likes of The Killing, Borgen and Sebastien Bergman, then its likely that you’re not just a fan of the twisty plots, well-rounded characters and strong (but crazy) women but you probably also wish that you could live in a house like Martin’s (The Bridge).

I’m a big fan of all things Scandinavian and yes, like most of us love a trip round Ikea but in Grazia magazine this week, there was a great article with plent of useful links on how to get some Scandi-Cool (their byline) and an interview with Danish ceramics designer Tine Freiesleben from Copenhagen (complete with pictures of her chic home with lots of white, wood, rugs and bits of vintage design). I’m just going to list some of the websites here but i particularly liked some of the wallpapers and soft furnishings at 95percentshop.co.uk including these:

Also check out:

Conran Shop: conranshop.co.uk if you have a few thousand for an Arne Jacobsen
Eva Solo: evasolo.com for gorgeous kitchen accessories
Ferm Living: ferm-living.com for gorgeous kids stuff and soft furnishings (like the cushion above)
Gubi: gubi.dk for ridiculously cool design (lighting and seating particularly)
Manostiles: manostiles.com for a gorgeous blog and great storage ideas
Normann Copenhagen: normann-copenhagen.com for stunning lighting, kitchen accessories and furniture
Skandium: skandium.com for more beautiful furniture, lighting and textiles
Strikaholic: strikaholic.dk for gorgeous knitted textiles, bedlinen, blankets and cushions

*yes, i know i’ve used the descriptor ‘gorgeous’ a lot above, but they are – other than scouring a thesaurus for alternatives, i might as well just tell you that they are…
