In the meantime, I'm thinking about Scandinavian design. With the exception of a little IKEA and some mid-century modern here and there, I don't tend to bring Scandinavian style into my interiors. It often feels cold to me. Too spare. I like things cluttered and homey. Warm.
Then again, maybe Scandinavian style IS warm. I'm certainly warming to it. Especially after watching those movies.
Here's an image from a Swedish linen shop that feels warm to me, even though it's dominated by white/black and grey. (It's the yellow, I think. You know how I love yellow.)
Am I wrong to think that Scandinavian interiors can feel pretty cold?
