Setting up home and it’s taking it’s toll? Take a deep breath. Now, channel some Scandinavian calm and take it one step at a time.
Inspired by Scandinavian ideology, furniture store Scanteak is all about bringing a little tranquillity into our hectic lives. Here, they’ve applied their simple and elegant approach to helping get you and your home ready with style.
#1 Make your dining room the heart of the home
While the kitchen is where all the action takes place, it’s the dining room where you and your guests will linger longest.
#2 Create a festive atmosphere
A few touches (depending on the time of the year) go a long way to creating a special ambience in the dining room. Decorate your table with simple pillar candles or lanterns. Add some greenery or pine cones for a natural touch, and some baubles for a splash of colour.
#3 Max out your space
Create more space so you can welcome guests in comfort. Stylish storage furniture will help clear your clutter before any guests arrive. Expandable tables add additional surfaces for all that food and drink, and folding chairs are a neat solution to your extra seating needs.
#4 Get gifting
Gift shopping can be challenging, whether you’re buying for a loved one or the office. Fortunately, everyone lives somewhere, and a little something to brighten it up will rarely go amiss. Sleek, affordable accessories such as a coaster set or a butler tray make gorgeous yet practical gifts that will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
