It’s a room with design ideas that work with any style and make it easier to change up the look on a whim.

Your Key to Good Sleep Lies with Scandinavian Bedrooms

Welcome to Scandi Week—Apartment Therapy’s seven-day focus on all-things Scandinavia (often defined as the countries of Sweden, Denmark, and Norway).

9 Go-To IKEA Products Designers Buy Again and Again

Do you ever walk into a stylish space and mentally try to decipher storied or custom pieces from those that were shipped in a flat pack from IKEA? That’s a cool game to play, right?

If you’re like me and get your kicks from decor guessing games, then you’ll probably be interested to know what pieces interior designers turn to time and time again, whether to meet a budget or because the pieces themselves really are that good (hello, the Stockholm Series!).

A Cool, Calm Scandinavian Style Home in Norway — Scandi Week House Tour

Name: Anette, husband Barrett, and baby boy Elliot
Location: Oslo, Norway
Size: 950 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years; owned

Welcome to Scandi Week—Apartment Therapy’s seven-day focus on all-things Scandinavia (often defined as the countries of Sweden, Denmark, and Norway). Sometimes it seems like the whole world is obsessed with trying to copy this corner of the globe, from its timeless style aesthetic to its now-famous coziness rituals. For the next week, we’ll take a look at all of it—cleaning, pop culture, and of course tons of eye popping design inspiration. Pull up a blanket and get hygge with us. This tour is a rerun of a gorgeous Scandinavian home we toured a few years ago.

Anette and her husband purchased a fourth floor (elevator-less) renovation project in 2012. It hadn’t seen an upgrade since the 1970s, and in just under one year they managed to infuse the 19th-century gem with the high style that Scandinavian design is famous for. Anette gives her living space character by combining the old with the new, paying homage to the building’s bones while incorporating both function and aesthetic in her modern decorating choices.
