Hi there friends! Are you ready to welcome in a clean aesthetic with warms woods, simple lines and tons of cozy textures? Well look no further, I have found the best house tours recently with a Scandinavian vibe that will not disappoint. They will though, have you seeing color or lack there of, in a whole new light.
When I look back on the palettes that inspired me in my adult life it’s amazing to see my color evolution. In my twenties it was all about bold & bright. I loved color and used it bravely with tons of confidence. Then came my 30’s, I became a mommy for the first time and all of a sudden my aesthetic began to change. I wasn’t drawn to bright & awake anymore, instead I was inspired by more subtle & soft, almost pastels hues. Then came my 40’s and I would say a part of me definitely pushed the envelope a little with color but always keeping in mind my true affection for neutrals. Now I find at 43, I want clean, white and simple. I can’t tell you how refreshing it feels, like I am stripping away the heaviness and only keeping what I need. With that being said I am obsessed with anything Scandinavian lately, especially since the fundamentals of this style are based on this ideology. The great thing about this style is that you can blend it with other styles you love so seamlessly, such as coastal, farmhouse, bohemian, industrial, eclectic, traditional, just to name a few.
Here are 5 house tours I am loving right now with a Scandinavian feel and a modern mix of styles….
