there’s a new design book out, and it’s by one of my personal favorite blog authors, niki Brantmark of my scandinavian home. niki’s beautiful new book is Modern Pastoral, published by CICO Books. Niki runs the daily interior design blog My Scandinavian Home, inspired by her move to Sweden from London over ten years ago and much like her blog, Modern Pastoral shares inspiring interiors embracing the pared-back lifestyle of living in the country, taking nature as the main point of inspiration. In her book, Niki shows us various takes on this simple, informal style. Featured homes across Scandinavia and the United States show how to use colors, textures and details to create a home in which to unwind — a peaceful retreat from the rest of the bustling, busy world. divided into four sections — Forest, Graphical, Homestead and Waterside, each chapter contains ideas to bring a small part of nature into your home. From exposed wood and rugged stone surfaces to neutral textiles and rooms filled with light, they all evoke an ideal, rural life, adapted to modern living. you can order the book right here.
