With this cold & grey weather cozy knits are essential, not only to wear but also as decor elements in your home. Adding little hints of knitted design creates a lovely environment, and is a great way to keep warm and decorate your home at the same time.
Below you can find a little selection of Scandinavian style knit home decor you can use to add coziness to your interior. The snuggle is real!
This beautiful and calm bedroom belongs to interior designer Gen and her Danish husband Kasper, and was photographed by My Scandinavian Home blog. I love the dark and soothing colour scheme, along with soft and warm textures.
The chevron wooden floor is a great touch, and a twist on standard flooring. It certainly adds a bit more character to the space.

I am quite excited and intrigued by this, mostly because I am looking forward to try to incorporate green into my home – a colour I’ve never actually used that much before. I do have quite a few plants however that adds a natural green touch, but have already started looking at little ways to refresh and renew my space. If you follow along on Instagram I am sure you will see more green popping up as the year goes by – so stay tuned!
“Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.” – Pantone
It’s the last day of 2016 and a great day to share a couple of images of my Christmas decorations before it all gets taken down.. Anyone else sad that the festive season is almost over?
I have a confession to make, I am 31 and this year was the first time I had my own Christmas tree! Living abroad I always travel back to my family for Christmas, and because of that I never saw the point in decorating too much before leaving. But this year I decided it was about time to start a collection of decorations of my own. Growing up in Norway we always had a real tree, it was a lovely tradition I always looked forward to. Now when I am living in Italy there are less real tree’s available so people tend to go for plastic version’s. I was a bit sceptic, but decided to give it a go. We purchased our tree from IKEA, and I am very pleased with the result of my FEJKA tree. Not only does it look good, but it was also easy to put up and to store away again after as it comes with a bag. I also purchased the BULLIG bamboo box to put the tree inside, and added a lovely faux fur rug in it. The tree decorations was kept quite minimal and simple, with a colour scheme of copper, white and black which reflects the rest of the flat.
The light I originally bought to have on the tree thinking we would only get a tiny one, but since we ended up with a full size tree it would not fit. Instead I had it hanging on the wall which was very lovely. I might keep it up for a while as it’s not too Christmassy.. I also added tons of scented candles around the home like this one in ‘hot mulled cider’ to create that cozy winter feeling.
To keep with the theme I also got a couple of new pillow cases and a blanket. The pillows I already own have quite the summer vibe, so now I can change according to the season. I got one in white faux fur and a slight pink with copper details as well as this pretty blanket – the perfect spot for some hygge!
Last but not least I also created this super easy and cute DIY snow globe, all you need are some small trees, a jar of some sort and snow (I used rock salt).
That was it for this year, focusing on keeping it very minimal but cozy. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas time and let the countdown to 2017 begin!
Happy Friday! I have spent the whole week recovering from a flu, so I decided to start the weekend by adding a bit of joy to my home in the form of a bouquet of flowers. They are the perfect autumn touch, don’t you think? Note to self: remember to buy more flowers because it really does make your house a home..
