Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Kitka's livingroom

The author's of the blog Kitka have the best sense of style I've seen in a long time, and if you want a part of it, you can just hop over to their shop Mjölk, full of modern Scandinavian and Japanese designs. For some strange reason, Scandinavian and Japanese style are very similar even though we live in opposite corners of the world . It's all about simplicity, light wood and natural materials, and often it's impossible to tell the two styles apart. I love them both!

This is the livingroom of Juli and John, the couple behind Kitka. It's located in Toronto, but it sure looks very Scandinavian to me! It's just the light that isn't quite the same...

    How fascinating I never noticed the similarities! But I do love both style aesthetics so I suppose it makes sense now that I think about it.

    Hmm, no I don't think there is any wabi sabi in Scandinavian design. Sure, the trend right now is to bring in old and worn objects, but looking in a wider perspective that hasn't been very popular in Scandinavian style before. We have been more about the straight lines and clean surfaces... :)

    See the guitar is my favorite musical instruments, music that makes people thoughtful style and home design and ultimately, musical elements. Thank you.
