Nordic & Cheap: the perfect living room

Valentina Di Roma

Are you looking for some ideas to decorate your house with a Nordic style or to redo the look to the living room for example?

Well, you’re just lucky devil today: some time ago I found an image that struck me and I wanted to share it with you.

We often see interior images on the web and in newspapers, with very sophisticated spaces. So many times we would like to reach that same style, but we get discouraged.

A bit because we do not know where to begin to choose the furniture, a bit because at the very idea of putting the pieces together, we can only think of what we would spend.

But this is not necessarily true; we have to devote time to research, that’s true, but it’s worth it. Will you stay with me to see how to redo the style of your living?


Here it is my muse for today. Neutral colors, woods with a strong personality that contrast with the cool tones of the furniture.

Few measured accessories, to complete the picture.

A harmonious and balanced together, a living area in a perfect Scandinavian style. Do you like some pieces or want them all?

Get ready, shopping list is coming and also a rendering of the final result!

Here you are, where and how much:

1/3. Various frames, Bjorksta, Ikea € 39,99

2. Buffet Trocadero, Maison du Monde, € 599,90

4. Applique, FACTORY, Maison du Monde € 99,99

5. Pillow, H&M, € 4,99

6. Plaid, H&M, € 49,99

7. Sofa Stocksund, Ikea, € 499

8. Pillow, H&M, € 19,99

9. Grey vase Atgang, Ikea, € 9,99

10. Frame Pjatteryd, Ikea, € 9,99

11. Table lamp Tris, Made, € 55

Now that the shopping list is done, all that remains is to see how these pieces similar but not identical to the originals work together. So you can decide if you like it or not.

Here it is:

What do you do? Modernize?
