Scandinavian Vintage Decor

Do you have a Scandinavian heritage? Or maybe you just like the simplicity of the Scandinavian style where pale colors and white furniture reign. The color palettes common in the Scandinavian style may be due to wanting to lighten up the interior of their homes because of the the early dark days that they experience.

 I live in Minnesota where many Scandinavians settled years ago and MY heritage is FULLY Scandinavian. I don't know if this influenced my own decorating style but I DO find that I like the simplicity and light colors in it. I'm going to be sharing with you this week some things I've found of  Scandinavian decor for your home and lifestyle. I found some beautiful photos of this simple, divine style in vintage decor that I thought I'd share with you here. I found them in House Beautiful.

Wouldn't you just love to move in here? Or maybe you'd just like to take a few ideas shown here and include them in the spaces of your OWN home. I think I could feel really at home and cozy here. What about you?


  1. Oh...yes, I would definitely love to have those kinds of rooms!! My favorites are the bedroom and the kitchen with the white plates on the wall and the green apples on the island! Awwww....pretty and peaceful, both!

  2. A favorite store of mine (it is no longer open) was 'Scantiques.' They had lovely old furniture from Scandinavia, some very worn and basic, and some a little more decorative and yet simplistic. Yes, it was a favorite place to window shop, but their prices were a wee bit too high for me.
    These pictures are so restful and inviting.
