...if you go down to the woods todayThe essence of good Scandinavian design is to create a fuss free environment balancing the home interior to reflect the landscapes from it countries of origin. Snow coloured regions.. the bare bones of winter. Pale woods, natural light soft blues, creams and milky whites woven together by rough rustic fabrics all reflecting the stark beauty of this Nordic region. Throughout this remote lodge style home i have tried to echo those principles...come take a look.
The entrance is via the front enclosed terrace and leads on to a vast kitchen/dining with plenty of room to relax & the hub of this home. Then off to the right is a smaller sitting area. A place to unwind in comfort, through to the bedroom... which in turn finds the bathroom located to the rear.
I love the mix of textured fabrics and this trio of woodland artwork, they seemed so suitable given this properties location.
With its long sofas and spacious proportions this space is perfect to unwind by the cosy fireplace.
Love how the colours merge with the winter backdrop
This huge tv turns this space almost into a private home cinema area. In each room large proportions of the floor have been left uncovered for access to each room. The location and winter time conditions are bound to create wet snowy feet.
winter whites and blues..... as crisp as the season itself.
Bespoke chair...or sofas to sprawl.... the choice is yours.
Moving through to the bedroom... where the colours have been continued and a large chaise upholstered to match the curtains...a great spot to watch the falling snow.
Keeping toes warm underfoot with this warm woollen rug.
so much light from the windows...with pale wood furnishing throughout.
the bed has coordinated linen and a macramé hanging acts as a textural art piece.
When night falls the bedroom colours change to softer hues and mellow rustic appearance.
the perfect spot for a nightcap before bed.
Spotlights and coordinated soft colours are interspersed with large landscapes of the area.
A large bathroom to relax and soak away the winter chills.
night time comes to the bathroom.
soft cream granite has been introduced to the two contrasting coloured wooden wall renders.
there a small partition wall to hide away the loo.
view back through to the bedroom
bespoke granite sinks add another texture.
This large terrace area is the entrance to this home and offers another relaxed space to entertain or simply chill out. The large wardrobe is perfect to hid away wellie boots and winter wear.
The far wall houses a drop down desk unit to convert this area into a home office work space if required.
The elongated artwork picks up on the colours from the multi coloured sofa and plaid ottomans.
A close up on textures and colours used throughout this room.
Low angle captures the beauty and form of this simple pale wood chairs.
Now into the kitchen/dinning area and what is a multi purpose area. You will see again large walkway areas of uncovered flooring left purposely to ensure the pale furnishing remain unspoilt by muddy or wet feet.
Wood divider adds interest between the seating and kitchen area.
Long view down to the dinning area.
A reverse angle looking back through into the kitchen.
Rustic, but contemporary this large home represents the essence of Scandinavian décor throughout.
Clean lines, space and uncluttered ledges allows the areas to flow seamlessly from one to another.
Glimpse of the terrace area from the dinning room.
Playful overhanging light fixture and soft pools of colour from the simple spotlights used throughout this residence.
Spacious dinning for six.
The dinning chairs were colour matched to the walls.
Bespoke light cluster hangs near the kitchen.
Simple rustic form this unassuming kitchen is functional and attractive.
Going through to the entrance.
Each room and area has views out onto the wintry landscape beyond.
Space and simplicity... this home gives you so much room to breath.
coffee....but no sign of cake.
One of my very favourite shots of this home...it encapsulates my aim to create a home at one with nature and its surroundings.
Hoping you have enjoyed your tour of this home and its Nordic charms.

I am breathless! Speechless! This is a slice of Nordic heaven! The colors, the textures, the pale woods! Your layout is so brilliant. This kitchen is so KB with unexpected furnishings that inspire me to think outside the box. That entry room is a favorite with the perfectly upholstered plaid sofa. I am so in love with this home!

What an experience it was to wander through this gorgeous space and to discover layer upon layer of thoughtful design and styling! Loved all the camera angles bringing the details of the spaces to the front. Loved the blue with the bleached wood throughout: a personal favorite of mine! So impressed with the ability to create coziness and yet keeping it quite minimal. Its a real gift of a natural designer!! Proud of you KBerry!!
