As part of our Take Three series, we looked at a Scandinavian style interior that MirrorCoop worked as the interior designer on.
Scandinavian in style and minimal/Modern in feel, this interior was the perfect canvas for some exploratory decorating.
Take #1 I still love this table
The chrome and glass table was made by a friend of the studio and is such a gorgeous piece. I am a huge fan of this spoke look and have a similar table in my own living room. We took this photo is the middle of the day, and the Scandi look -- super white -- is probably best captured mid day.
Take #2 Goodnight!
We broke with tradition in this one and took take 2 around 10pm. I love how the lamp illuminated the room and thought this would be so cool as a photo. Besides, night and day offer a huge difference in the way a room looks, so why not?
Antiqued mirrors with very heavy antiquing can lose their ability to bounce light and make a room feel brighter, so we split the difference with this antiqued perimeter layout. This combination make the mirror both functional and decorative, which the homeowner loved.
Take #3 New Couch / New Art
This is how the interior looks today. We swapped out the old prints for some new, added a mirror (We are MirrorCoop) and also added a mirrored table. These pieces gave the interior a much more custom feel, as the furniture is all bespoke, from the mirror to the table to the couch.
Honestly, I love this interior and am personal friends with the homeowner, so I've been back many times and always am bugging them about new design ideas.
It's a Wrap
Scandinavian style is so in vogue right now (and really has been for a while). If you like this look, check out http://em.residencemagazine.se/ and http://www.fantasticfrank.com/, two classics with very high quality. Both of these will give you a good feel for the style and hopefully some inspiration for your own decoration.
