Fireside Memories

with 2 comments

 

Winter has set in where we live, and I find there’s nothing better for cheering up a grey, freezing cold day than to lounge in front of a blazing fire.  It also has the best heat output anywhere, including oil fired radiators and ambient heaters!  You can sit and watch a fire for its living elements and never be bored, in fact it will help clear out upsetting emotional states and give you comfort.

There’s a lot of Scandi style furniture and décor around at the moment and it’s a style that’s perfect for winter decorating.  It can be successfully combined with other styles, as I’ve done in the scene above.  It’s a beautiful, minimalist style that was among the first design styles to promote simplistic ways of living when it emerged during the 1930s within the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.  It became known as “Scandinavian design” which originated from a design show that toured the USA and Canada between 1954 and 1957.  The style emphasizes clean lines and simple designs that are inspired by nature and the Nordic climate. This results in spaces that are suffused with light, airiness, serenity and a feeling of oneness with nature.  Scandi style promotes beautiful designs and quality, with sustainable products that are affordable and easily accessible to people in all strata’s of society, and that makes it an egalitarian choice for today.

  1. Absolutely Fabulous! I see a lot of things I love in this photo Moz! Everything is amazing! But that Sofie’s house my Cheeky Pea really stands out the way you arranged it on the table with the two red horses facing towards the viewer. So lovely with it charming detail. I want it!😍 !

    • Oh I’m glad you liked those, Cherri! It’s part of a new venture. Cheeky Pea has teamed up with Saffron Foxclaw (CP’s manager) to produce a slightly belated Seasonal set inspired by the traditions of Sweden! Your “hast” (actually a straw goat but Isla thinks it looks like a horse) will protect your gifts, the tiny falu house is modelled after the traditional falu houses of Sweden and your little ones can play with the Dala horse.
