    Another note about bohemian, I absolutely love when people incorporate lots of plants. Hanging plants, potted plants, whichever you prefer as long as you use a wicker baskets or knotted fabrics in the hanging plants with loose scruffed ties hanging below.

    Mary, you are so welcoming! I am lucky to be building a house from scratch and I am overwhelmed with choice. We have an open concept long kitchen, dining living space and I would like a clean cottage chic feel. I love grey, I want to go with a light coloured wood floor but I am struggling with what tone of grey to use – I don't want it to look stark so I was considering a warm grey wall colour with white cabinets. Do you have any guidance for how to choose a wall colour that wont clash with a natural wood floor?

    I'm really frustrated after watching your video. I've lived for a LONG time in Scandinavia and IKEA is NOT the pinnacle of Scandinavian design but designers like Arne Jacobsen and other mid-century designers. Please dig a little deeper so you don't give incorrect answers. To me as a Scandinavian this video did not provide good answers to the questions asked.

    For scandinavian design you don't have to use just white, black or grey. This may be the foundation of the room but bont be affraid to put in really brightly coloured textiles, red (like nose blood) and royal blue blankets are one example of how you can make the room less dull.

    Cough cough…Scandinavian design and IKEA in the same sentence? I dont think so.

  12. May 13, 2018 at 7:35 am

    Lighting is very important in the Scandinavian design. Its really dark her most of the year.

  13. May 13, 2018 at 7:35 am

    I love you so much Mary! Please keep making videos! I feel like if we lived in the same city we could totally drink wine and go to thrift stores together (not at the same time of course). :D!
