Is it MODERN, MINIMAL OR SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN?deb grasby,Cabin In The Woods Design, interior design, london ontario, home staging london ontario, bayfield ontario, deb grasby, interior decor london ontario interior decorators in bayfield ontario, deb grasby

SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN IS A CLASSIC AND A CURRENT DESIGN TREND

HERE IS YOUR SCANDINAVIA 101

Well, it is SCANDINAVIAN if you note some or all of the following key points.

        1)   FLOORS AND WALLS Feature light or bleached wood.  Floors will often have wide
              planks  and most often in light or bleached finishes.  Ditto for walls and ceilings, although not
              with wide plank effect.  Area rugs, when used, will usually feature graphic designs.

        2)  COLOUR:  Interior colours can be, but are not limited to whites and blue grays.  
              Punches/elements of other colours ie. apple green are often found as well.

        3)  FABRICS:  As with the rugs, fabrics tend to have playful graphic design for bedding and
             pillow covers.  Draperies, when used, will most often be in a gauzy white, blue or gray.
             MARIMEKKO fabrics are bright, large scale and always happy.  Check them out         
              on finnstyle.com. Crate and Barrel now carrying some MARIMEKKO bedding  
             crateandbarrel.com

        4)  FORM:   Scandinavian interiors are characterized by clean, simple lines in furniture and  
                 architecture.

        5)  FUNCTION:   One word  "Liveable"

        6)  FURNITURE:   Iconic Mid Century designers like HANS WEGNER (Wishbone Chair) and
              ARNE JACOBSEN (Egg Chair) created pieces that are as beautiful, functional and desirable    
              today as they were when originally born.  Of course IKEA does a great job of interpreting
              all things Scandinavian and you just can't beat the price point.

        7)  ACCESSORIES:    Think minimal, serene, uncluttered and fresh

MONOGRAMMINGCabin In The Woods Design, interior design, london ontario, home staging london ontario, bayfield ontario, deb grasby, interior decor london ontario interior decorators in bayfield ontario, deb grasby
Don't think of it as being vain.  Monogramming adds that custom vibe and besides that, looks very impressive.  
Use it on your pillow cases and bath towels.  I think this is a particularly lovely trend and don't forget its accompanying hot trend;  vintage!
Look for monogrammed linens (don't be concerned if the initials aren't yours) in second hand, thrift shops and auctions

  UPHOLSTERED HEADBOARDS  show no sign of waning in the bedroom.  Retailers like Home Sense feature Cabin In The Woods Design, interior design, london ontario, home staging london ontario, bayfield ontario, deb grasby, interior decor london ontario interior decorators in bayfield ontario, deb grasbyready mades at affordable price points and furniture companies like Decorest and Restoration Hardware, for example, feature them in their bedroom options.  For a custom presentation, go to your upholsterer.  Some, like Custom Covers in Exeter, can supply the headboard frame and upholster in the custom fabric of your choice

 



Cabin In The Woods Design, interior design, london ontario, home staging london ontario, bayfield ontario, deb grasby, interior decor london ontario interior decorators in bayfield ontario, deb grasbyThe CANOPY BED  has been given pride of place in many magazine spreads and is the bed of choice for many designers. Many upscale designs are available now from painted and stained  wood to metals. A couple of caveats to consider if choosing this option.  Because it does make a big statement, the size of your bedroom will dictate whether it will be an anchoring feature or overwhelms the space.  Price points vary greatly, so use due diligence when you are shopping.

 

 

OCCASIONAL TABLES:  They are moveable and multifunctional.  Opt for one with a bottom shelf and double your options for display.
This trend includes artisan metals, castors and X shaped base.  No longer is it desirable to 'match' your coffee table and end tables.  Mix it up and your space will show you a little more attitude (always a good thing)

LOCALLY, Artist GILBERT VANDENHEUVEL crafts bicycle parts that transcends their original use.Gilbert Vandenheuvel, bayfield ontario

Local gallery owner, JUDY STEPHENSON of MARTEN ARTS GALLERY, BAYFIELD ( www.martenarts.com ) represents Gilbert and says his crafted art 'sells itself'.  'Basically', she says, "Gilbert's work appeals to cyclists and family and/or friends of cyclists whose numbers continue to grow exponentially.  Each object is well made, durable and seems to have melded itself into this new and useful mirror, table or chair."  Needless to say Gilbert's works of art are selling well!  

GILBERT VANDENHEUVEL……a great, local example of the ARTISAN TREND

Artisan Trend, Pottery, texture, metals and old mixed with new.  The ARTISAN trend is a welcome stage in our home design history.  It is historic itself.  Think WILLIAM MORRIS and the ARTS AND CRAFTS MOVEMENT.

  Morris and his group worked diligently to keep the industrialized aspect out of items for consumption.  Handcrafting guilds were re-created and the skill of the artisan valued.  There is so much organicity, beauty and tactility to products created 'by hand'.  We may have to spend more per piece but perhaps we don't require the vast numbers of things we mindlessly purchase now?!

I cannot bring up the name WILLIAM MORRIS the design icon without mentioning, for your reflection,  one of his most famous quotes:

  "HAVE NOTHING IN YOUR HOUSE THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW TO BE USEFUL OR BELIEVE TO BE
   BEAUTIFUL"
