There is a Nordic feeling upon the air since last past one week because of non stop snowy weather. Friends have been sharing the photos on the social media taken on a white coated city of Istanbul. The excitement of snowy days seem like will be going on for a while.
By living in Turkey, we are all gifted by the seasonal surprises and able to sense all 4 of them around the year. To expect something new excites as well as refreshens our minds by breaking the routine. No doubt, clutter cleansing, changing our closets, dresses, home settings and its decoration all bring joy to our lives….
In winter, while the streets and the nature dressed up in white outside, the light reflects to inner spaces in a different way, it carries the clean and naive beauty to our homes. The cold weather outside triggers our senses of protection and be warmed by love, cozy objects and warm materials inside…
There Nordic countries live their lives surrounded by these senses at least 6 months in a year. So it is part of their life and living style.
White and grey shades accented by strong colors, variety of natural woods and materials, animal coats, deer figures, fire places, pillows, soft, clean and smart, humoristic lines of object and furniture designs are all the execution of Nordic regions living style. As it was also presented at the Maison and Objet this year, the Nordic vintage look is strongly trendy in the world. So now while the Nordic feeling is upon the air, let’s be creative and reenergize our interiors.
This is the product of today, just fresh out of our Atelier. It is called Jets and it was inspired by the Nordic Air going on these days:)
Many of us do not have luxury to design a product by inspirations, but have an opportunity to make small changes in our homes or offices. After all, small changes make huge differences in our lives!
Opening up space and bringing light to our homes will refresh our days and bring energy to interiors
Placing an animal inspired accessory may add humor to the coolest spaces
Including fabrics and pillows with bold colors and animal figures would make a statement
Placing egg-shaped modern but cozy furnitures makes the space more cozy brings us back to us childhood
Using simple and creative objects
adding warmth by the help of candle lights
displaying pictures of Nordic animals in a humoristic set up as if they are family members and placing them in the center of our room
bringing nature into home
dressing decor objects by knitted fabrics
upholstering or covering some surfaces by animal fur like materials
framing the light color, silver objects and furnitures in front of a grey wall
complementing decor with white color accessories
coloring the subtle white spaces by accent colors and thick knit materials
providing creative depth by using textiles and wallpapers in optical patterns
These are all easy creative ways to add immediate Nordic touch to our homes and to revitalize our living spaces.
I recommend you to enjoy the snowy days while you can before spring arrives:)
