Scandinavian Style

When I was in my early 20's, the style of my home could have been described as 'Op Shop Nanna Chic', but over the past few years I've been drawn towards the calm you find in Scandinavian interiors (but with yum hits of bright colour). If money was no object and I got the opportunity to create my absolute dream home, emmas designblogg would be a first stop for a source of lovely inspiration. A next stop would be to re-visit the Bondi home I shot on Wednesday for Real Living magazine. Homeowner Carina, who also owns Funkis, has created an utterly spectacular and very Swedish space. I'll make sure to share some pics once the issue is out (Carina is also about to open a new Funkis store in Paddington). In the mean time, pictured above is a little collection from my present home, sort of a miniature mood board for our dream/much more fabulous home. A girl can dream...


  1. lovely! i am currently living in 'nanna chic'...which i know has my heart, but lately i have felt a little maturity in the vintage sector is needed. some fancy hanging ideas, less crochet, more clean lines and bold colour..and ta-dah!...i hope it works. :) your blog is always inspiring.

  2. Nice little collection! My favourite bit by far and away is the horsey :)

  3. gorgeous little mood board! look forward to the funkis home story, i've always loved the shop.

  9. Hi Briar,

    Thanks for the Real Living mention - reading your blog also made me think...
    you must have a beautiful home ready for shooting?

    Thanks for dropping by Deb! My home isn't ready for shooting unfortunately - I'm held back with a very 90's kitchen and bathroom design where I am at the moment. You will be the first to know when I am ready though! Briar


Thanks for comment or question, I love to read them.
