Handmade Home Decor: Decorating in Scandinavian Style

by Jacqui Miyabayashi of Mee A Bee

The days are getting shorter and I find myself inside a lot more. We’re dragging out heaters and rugs. The house suddenly seems small and overflowing. It has me wishing for a beautiful uncluttered space like those seen in Scandinavian design magazines. White walls and light wood furniture make the most of natural light in that frigid environment. Cheerful bright colors make a cozy retreat and remind us of nature’s brilliance.
