Vintage Inspiration Friday # 39 Scandinavian Design

Most of us are aware of the current influences of Scandinavian design.
Anyone who dabbles in the world of "white and chippy"
 is familiar with at least a few of their blogs. 

Whether you are a full blown devotee, or like me, 
one who loves white and neutrals as a base,
we all can find something from their aesthetic
 that can be appreciated and incorporated
into our own personal design philosophy.

Here are just a sampling of blogs that I personally find as favorites.

l antlif

(which literally means "flower stand")

I have to say that of all the Scandinavian blogs this is my favorite.
The flea market vibe and the colorful use of plants and blooms
 gives me a lift each time I go there.

I think I'm more attracted to the French influence in their design:
slightly more elegant and curvy.

I'm not a stark and minimalist kind of gal,
but I do appreciate the clean, vintage look.

Let us know what you think...
Are you influenced by the current
Scandinavian Country look?

There are so many wonderful and creative posts
from last week that it's hard to just choose four,
Gosh, I could feature 10 or 15 of you easy each week!
