Give your home design the Swedish treatment
Even if you can't plan a holiday trip to the beautiful Scandinavian region this year, you can still add a touch of Swedish class to your American home. Interior designers Rhonda Eleish and Edie Van Breems recently published a book that dissects the elements of Swedish design titled Reflections on Swedish Interiors.
"[Swedish design] has a serenity, calm and feel-good quality that literally permeates the atmosphere," Eliesh tells the Huffington Post.
Learn how to add Scandinavian flair in your own house with some simple guidelines:
Bold colors: Hues like bright blue are symbolic of Sweden and even make up the country's flag. If you want to incorporate this shade into your home next year, you're in luck. As you may already know, color authority Pantone named dazzling blue as the top hue for the upcoming year. Add this trendy but classic shade to your home through the use of custom curtains and drapes.
Natural elements: Swedish culture revolves a lot around the outdoors, which means that their design aesthetic favors natural elements. Some ways to create this atmosphere is to add earth-toned décor to your home as well as natural wood. Furthermore, letting an abundance of sunlight into your home is a great way to achieve this vibe.
