Simply Scandinavian

With the Autumn weather feeling like it's really starting to set in I've been looking to the Scandinavians for design inspiration.
The look is very natural, lots of wood, neutral colours teamed with thick knitted throws and cushions.

The bedroom is my own creation, I love wicker baskets, and old scabby looking cases they're great for hiding odds and ends away in.

One of my favourite companies Cox and Cox have a lot of items in their new Autumn collection that can help you achieve this look yourself. I love all of their pieces, but these are the ones that I love the most.

I'm sharing this post with



  1. Welcome to blogging, and thank you for joining my newbie party. Love the inspiration here,and I am totally getting ready for Fall myself. Please add my link or button for the newbie party. Thanks.

  2. I hate to think that Fall is on the way, seems we are still waiting for summer here in western Canada. I do love the season of warm bulky sweaters, cozy blankets and the crunch of leaves under your feet.
