How to Create a Scandinavian Interior

This style is both cozy and minimalist. The goal is to create a clutter free zone that maximizes the amount of natural light. Think understated elegance

This is the minimalist part of the scandinavian style. Many furniture pieces have hidden storage to hide your stuff

It is best to leave windows bare to maximize the amount of light in the room, but if privacy is a concern, consider using sheer or linen curtains

Wood is the main flooring material, usually in a light color. Stone tiles are used in bathrooms but never ever ever use a carpet floor. Ever.
Rugs are a good idea. Use cotton, wool or sheepskin

Use clean lines and minimalist silhouettes. Popular choices are the slingback chair, jacobsen 7 chair and the jacobsen egg chair

Lots of wood. Use beech, pine and ash. Linen, wool, cotton and leather. Sheepskin rugs and thick knitted blankets. Use lots of texture to make sure the room doesn’t get boring

Color palette and patterns
White is the main color. The accent color is usually black but a pop of color is not uncommon. I enjoy using lots of color in this style. It is one of the best things that sets it apart from the minimalist style. The walls are almost always white.
This style does not usually use patterns. You can use stripes and other simple patterns but try to stay away.

Lighting is very important. In Scandinavia there is sometimes only 7 hours of light. Sculptural light fixtures, chrome wall sconces, paper lantern, copper or brass (and lften oversized) pendant lights, arching lamps, tripod lamps and even candle are some of the lighting elemant you can use.
Try hanging mirrors parallel to windows to reflect more light into the room

Art and accessories
Art is usually abstract and colorful. Try hanging one large piece or many pieces gallery style.
Due to the minimalism in this style, accessories are carefully chosen and not overused. Try using sticks in a glass vase, plants, and flowers. Fiddle leaf fig trees always look good. If you cant keep a plant alive then buy fake ones.
Don’t overdo either of these elements. The Scandinavian style makes use of negative space.

How To Take Amazing Photos

You do not need a super expensive camera or loads of filters to take awesome pictures.


  1. Use light, color, size, shape and other elements to add interest and contrast to the photos 
  2. Find different angles. Take a picture from above or from the ground. Move really close up or back up far away. Image result for macro photography
  3. Take a small camera everywhere you go.
  4. Take a bunch of pictures and don’t look at them until later. If you take 100 shots one of them has to be good, but if you only take one shot……
  5. Go places. You won’t find much inspiration in places you frequently go
  6. Look with your eyes first. Make a habit of noticing the things that would make a good picture Image result for incredible pictures
  7. Practice everyday                                                                                                                Image result for person holding a camera

Phases Of The Moon Watercolor Chart Tutorial

I wanted to make something pretty to hang on my walls so I broke out my watercolors and painted this. Here’s how you can too.

1. Learn the phases of the moon

Quite a few times I messed up the order of the phases and had to scrap it entirely. Please learn from my mistakes and actually take some time to figure out which order the go in.  Here is a helpful chart:

2. Make circles of watercolor paint

Don’t use too much water for this step, and don’t use too little. You have to find a happy medium.

3. Add a little bit of color to the second circle

For me the dark colors symbolized the part of the moon we can see because that way I could make it look fantastic. The first circle we didn’t fill in was the new moon. If you want you can add a tiny bit of color to that one so it’s actually visible. This circle will be the waxing crescent. Only add color to the edge like in the picture.

4. Add a little water so it spreads just a bit

5. Soak up the extra water with a tissue

It’s looks better if there aren’t pools of water. You can also dab at the color if it’s spreading to much.

6. To paint to first quarter

You will need to use the same technique as before, but with a bit more color, and let is spread until its halfway across.

7. Add darker dots and put water over them

These will be the craters in the moon. Soak up the extra water with a tissue

Continue using this technique until you are done.

When it is dry you can write the phases on it with a pen and add the finishing touches
