Scandi Style Decor | Home Style Dreams

Connor and I are finally starting to attempt to get our life in order. There’s been a lot happening lately (I’ll cover it all in a separate post) but one of the main stresses for me at present is our home.

For me personally I feel like it’s a cash drain – we’re in private rented housing and while the location and size is perfect, the old structure and heating and insulation drives me round the bend as we're having to use so much gas and electric trying to warm the place up. The electrics blow all the time leaving us with the added expense of light bulbs (which aren't cheap since they changed the watt and old style bulbs). Overall I'm just frustrated by it all.  

I personally feel when my house is in order my mind works so much clearer, I’m de-stressed, I resolve issues quicker and I’m all round happier person. I like a home to reflect the personality of the person staying in it, I love visuals and colours and overall like it to feel like a sanctuary. At the moment I just don’t want to decorate the house were in mostly because, its not ours.

Its been stressing me out for a while and its got to a point where Connor has said – let’s work on the house (to make me happier, happy wife, happy life and all that) and I suppose I’m excited about changing it up, but, I think a good happy medium is to do so with the furniture and furnishings rather than wallpaper and carpeting and paints. I can’t take those things with me when we move, but I can take the furniture and furnishings.

I like wood. I don’t really go for dark tones and prefer classic with a modern twist. I came across these pieces in the Scandinavian collection over on Hampton's Furniture and I’ve fallen in love.

The solidly made frames, the medium wood, the bright colours mixed with the finishing touches of the rug, the deer head and the rug. Pop in some awesome lighting and some finishing touches and photo’s and I know for a fact I’m going to be a happy lady.

If I could carry this theme throughout our house I would be in heaven. It meets my need for classic with a modern twist and Connor loves modern with an older style – country home sort of look. The deer head and rustic wood are perfect for his décor tastes mixed with my own.
If we can pull this off the house truly will be a perfect blend of both of our personalities under the one roof - that's what a home is all about isn't it?
