How To Create A Nordic Home

When I’m not obsessing over Morocco, I’m all for Nordic styling around the home! (Which also embraces a little Moroccan appreciation at that!)

Choose 2 or 3 different surface finishes i.e. wood, marble and grey concrete and stick to those tones when it comes to accessories etc. You’ll never go wrong with loads of white – and white metro tiles will instantly bring your kitchen or bathroom right on trend. Check out WOMAG for metro tiles, counter tops and more.

Mix and match chairs – and if you want to get right in there, get a lovely accent chair in tan leather! (Check out www.dark-horse.co.za)

Baskets as plant holders, general storage, toy baskets or simply on display sure do fulfill my styling itch! (Check out Design Africa & The Basket Room for some of my favourites.)

Glass walls are a great way to keep a sense of space while dividing a room.

Create a beautiful entrance scene or hallway. Think beautiful bench, vases, prints or artwork, circular mirrors, wall hooks and pot plants – probably not recommended if there are small people in the house!
