Nowadays, it is almost impossible to ignore the beauty of Scandinavian interior designs. You can see them literally everywhere, in magazines, on interior design Instagram profiles and on many other social media websites. Introduced in the 20th century or in 1950 to be exact, Scandinavian design has immediately won the hearts of many in Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Iceland. And the things that make it so popular is its simplicity, minimalism and functionality, as well as the amazing palette of neutral colours. So, if you are one of those people who feel completely drawn to this look, I’m sure you’d like to know something more on how to recreate it yourself.

The warmer temperatures, sunny days and bright blue skies will be soon luring you to spend as much time as possible outside. So, if you have always wished to entertain, eat or lounge out in the open, now is the perfect time to rethink how that area feels and looks like.

A small backyard? A few square inches can go a long way. Limited budget? Just use what you already got. No greenery? Absolutely no big deal. Let’s take a look at some easy decorating ideas that can work miracles for any outdoor spot you may have set your sights on for beautifying.

Patio Primer

You can easily give your space a fresh face by simply sticking to a monochromatic palette and without overdoing it. A good idea is to choose the essential pieces in modern grey and white and pick contemporary furniture such as a wirework round table, a sleek, white umbrella, and minimalist outdoor stools.

Tropical Mix

If you want to add a touch of fun to your outdoor space, throw in some colourful accents. Add some bold cushions in vibrant colours and some modern prints like stripes, ikat, and eye-catching florals. As for the furniture, go with white bar outdoor stools to tone down the cheerful colour scheme. Foot stools are also a great idea to add more comfort and functionality to your space.

Peaceful Corner

If you live in the urban jungle and are aiming for a sense of privacy, enclose your outdoor space with a tall wooden fence. Make sure to decide how you want to use this area before making any decorating decisions. For instance, if you plan on using it mostly for entertaining and dining, the grill and the table should be the first key pieces that you arrange around. Add a couple cool outdoor stools to maximise functionality!

Natural Living Room

On the other hand, if you do have some space, re-imagine a room without walls. This way it will be easier for you to create an intimate gathering space that’s all set for entertaining. Picture this – a wicker sofa around your coffee table, a free-standing umbrella and a fire pot.

Seaside Bliss

If you are lucky to have an ocean front view, set up your picnic table and go with the nautical theme – blue hydrangeas all around and a fish motif on the linens. In this case, go with benches. They are the perfect choice here because they don’t have any backs to obstruct the gorgeous view.

Patio Dining

Wicker Chairs Dining Set

Simply put – formal without any unnecessary fuss. Surround your teak table with wicker chairs to keep a relaxing mood. As for the accessories, nothing more than chicken wire lanterns for an oh-so-easy table décor.

The implementation of the ingenious simplicity invented by the Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Denmark and Norway in homes all around the world isn’t even close to coming to an end. It may have morphed in several different ways, but that has only rendered the design that much more adaptable and applicable. If you are yet to hop on this design’s bandwagon, here are some tips on how to implement it right, and if you want to stray away a bit, you can choose to do it relying on one of the currently popular twists.

Let’s face it, not all of us greet the New Year with healthy body resolutions. I’m sure I’m not the only one when I say I greeted 2018 with the determination to make changes with my interior. It’s not every day one gets to change the abode, so the fresh year start is also the perfect start for interior décor changes.

Nowadays, it seems like the whole world has been seduced by the reducing charm of minimalism – some to a certain extend and some on the brink of a monkish-driven objects starvation. More and more people are leaving the interior design craze behind by turning to the bare necessities alone. In other words, it’s the Ice Age of design and décor. This novelty appeals mostly to people who consider the time spent tidying up time wasted in vain and they usually say “I’d rather spend my money and time on travel instead”.

Now, although I am not going to deny the appealing ring of that philosophy, I do believe that taking the time to create a home that oozes with warmth is worthwhile. Yes, there are still those of us who would add a little drama to all those excessively clean lines, and it would be based on a French manuscript. Old-fashioned this mindset might be, but it’s in the old ways where wisdom often lies. Yes, in a world of DJs, some of us still get a kick out of Edit Piaf.

Nothing may be the current big thing, but it doesn’t speak the language of history as French provincial style furniture does. In the light of this fact, minimalism, step aside, this is how we create j’adore – something that actually pleases the heart.

 French Provincial Style Furniture

J’suis Harmony

The French frown to ostentatious finishes which are very often confused with having a fine taste. On the contrary, since French homes are usually on the small side, the owners strive to include gorgeous items that also have a practical use up their sleeves. The undertone of efficiency should be mirrored in every item as to achieve balance. Open shelving is one great example for French double agent tricks.

The French Palette is Neutralette

Subtlety and elegance are the pillars of French provincial style furniture and that’s best communicated through colors. White, light blue, taupe, brown and sage are the colours most commonly in play and the rule not to use more than two colours from the same family in one room. However, when it comes to details and décor, the French do embrace vibrant and bold hues, mostly displayed through discreet architectural elements or textile patterns.

A Little Rust Goes a Long Way

Nothing speaks the dialects of French provincial as much as gentle weathering… Bypass all that’s not wood and wrought iron and you’ll be on the Oui bandwagon! A few digs and scuffs should not scare away the followers of this style since it must bear the whisper of age.

Finally, don’t forget to get a few vases and fill them with flowers with vibrant colours! Open your heart for the petals of mighty roses that will appeal both to eyes and noses.

Antique Furniture

Antique furniture is a living proof of the impeccable craftsmanship throughout history that remains unmatched even with all the technology we have today. Antique pieces have stood the test of time and will continue to do so for many years to come. They are a great way to add some character to your home décor, and with the great variety of styles, shapes, patterns, materials, and colours available on the market, you can certainly find a piece that will quench the thirst for antique beauty of even the pickiest person.

Thanks to the Internet, it has never been easier to shop for antique furniture. American, English, French, Spanish, Dutch, Oriental, you can find all types of antique furniture for sale online. Of course, before you decide on what to purchase, there are a number of factors that you need to consider.

Outdoor spaces are a great way to bring the feeling of your living room to your backyard. There is something about the coziness of a well-decorated room that makes you want to enjoy the moment, and when you combine that feeling with fresh air and the beauty of a nature, it gets even better.

Make-Your-Outdoor-Set-Last-Long

Whether you have chosen to buy outdoor furniture that is fine and expensive, or opted for a more affordable yet reliable outdoor set, you probably want it to last for a long time. However, without proper care, no outdoor furniture can resist weather elements, and can easily start showing its age very soon.

We offer you few tips to help you make your outdoor set last longer regardless of its type.

  • Water and a mild dish-washing detergent is a good and gentle cleaning mixture to start with. It will not scratch or bleach your furniture;
  • When using a special cleaning product, make sure to test it in an inconspicuous place first;
  • Do not use a power washer to wash your furniture. You have probably seen what it can do your deck, imagine what it can do to your furniture;
  • Take care of your furniture now so you can enjoy it for years. Taking proper care at the end of each season will ensure its long lifespan. The best way to preserve it in winter if you are not using it, is bring it indoors;
  • Use a breathable fabric furniture cover to keep it protected. Have in mind that vinyl covers, although waterproof, do not breathe. This can trap moisture which can lead to mold;
  • Dress up worn furniture with new colourful cushions or with a new umbrella. It will give it a whole new look;
  • Wicker furniture has open weave which makes it a perfect target for dirt buildup. Hence, use a soft bristle brush or a vacuum to wipe it;
  • While wrought iron/steel furniture comes with powder coat to prevent rust, it can still show up. In such case, use a fine sandpaper to remove the rust and then touch it up with an exterior-grade paint.

When looking to buy outdoor furniture, choose a material that will be easier to clean and maintain. Aforementioned, without good care, your outdoor set will become faded and slowly start to fall apart. It does not have to be that way though. Follow our steps and keep your outdoor set in a perfect condition and looking brand new for many years to come.

Buy From Big Retail Stores

Specialized stores for indoor and outdoor furniture set higher prices than big retail stores. That’s mostly because they focus on one thing – higher profits. Plus, big retail stores supply all kinds of products in large quantities. When you buy more pieces, the final price is lower than when you buy only one item. Therefore, avoid specialized stores and shop from retailers that sell other products beside indoor furniture.
