Simply Scandinavian is an inspirational survey of 20 homes ranging from tiny cabins to elegant apartments in Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark.

Scandinavian interior design is admired the world over for its simplicity and understated elegance. Rooms are typically airy, light, and bright. Furnishings are modern classics from the key names of Scandinavian design mixed with pretty antique and vintage pieces. The beauty of natural materials, especially wood, is celebrated. It’s a style that’s entirely in tune with our current desire for calm, comfortable, and uncluttered spaces to live in. The 20 homes featured in this book are presented as case studies, with chapters including Elegant Simplicity, Vintage Inspired, Pared-down Modern and Contemporary Rustic. Each home showcases an aspect of Scandinavian interior design and the homeowners include architects, fashion and jewellery designers, and antiques dealers. Celebrating a way of life that combines elegance and comfort with a strong love of the natural world, Simply Scandinavian offers an abundance of decorative ideas that will work in any setting.
