I have been overwhelmed by all the lovely images shared on Instagram since I started the hashtag #thatscandinavianfeeling, and love looking through the feed every day. The photos are all so cosy and positive which portrays the Nordic summer mood perfectly. It is a time of hope and happiness, and even though the weather’s not always the best, us Scandinavians always finds happiness in the little things. This month I have again selected 4 of the images to share and have also asked each of them to tell us what that Scandinavian feeling means to them.

“My scandinavian feeling is to sip a cup of coffee while sitting on the veranda, breathing the freezy morning air.”
2 // @karibecks
“I’m very inspired by Scandinavian design and like simple style and clean lines. A modern Scandinavian style with elements of black, white and natural describe my style well, this image is an example of that.”

”If I think of Scandinavia, I always imagine a long and cold winter and a family staying inside around a fireplace in a warm and cozy atmosphere. The Scandinavian feeling I love and the look for my bed&breakfast is a mix of little details – such as a slice of banana bread and a cup of tea – that make you feel relaxed and welcomed. Beauty is in the little things of everyday life and Scandinavians knows that best.”

“To me the Scandinavian feeling is about soft colours, clean lines and nature. I love to mix wood, plants and ceramics. By putting new and old design together I try to create a feeling of timelessness.”
As this will be a monthly post, I do hope you join in and share your images on Instagram too! Its a great way for us all to get together and spread some hygge. So what is that Scandinavian feeling to you?
