Scandinavian Style Home With A Greek Twist

We have all come to know and love Scandinavian home style, with crisp gallery white walls and uncomplicated forward-thinking furniture.

Beginning in the living room, familiar stark Scandi walls form a simplistic backdrop for a whole host of earthy Greek textiles that are scattered freely around the lounging zone, including attractive footstools, complimenting scatter cushions and floor cushions, and a large area rug. The walls themselves have been brightened up with a large work of colorful art, flanked by a couple of smaller pieces.

The kitchen design expands on the blue and white colorway, where a long backsplash has been created from a checkerboard of tiles. The kitchen units themselves are of a traditional white wooden design with shell cup handles, opposite a more ornate dresser and a white painted dining set. The furniture selection creates a homey french farmhouse look, which has been complimented with the introduction of warm toned terracotta floor tiles, against white washed floorboards.

Striking black and white décor adorns the hallway, including a quirky picture frame wallpaper print. More checkerboard tiling covers the floor area beneath a coat rack and shoe stand-a sensible choice for keeping mud and rainwater drips from warping the otherwise wooden flooring.

The colors from the living area are taken through into the bedroom, where coarse stoney walls give the slumber space a quaint cave-like atmosphere.
