Interior Design – A Family-Friendly Home Influenced By Scandinavian Design

Designer Gillian Lazanik of Affecting Spaces shares her own home makeover that’s not only functional for her family of four, but reflects their personality. See how she created a bright and open space with Scandinavian design influences, playful touches of color and a clean and minimal aesthetic.

To create a child-proof space that’s safe for her growing kids, Gillian opted for round tables to avoid sharp edges, durable plastic dining chairs and laminate floors so they wouldn’t get scratched by her dog’s nails. Inspired by Scandinavian design, she kept the palette neutral with pops of black, but brought in color with accessories and art. The family shares one bathroom, so functionality was key. A double sink, sliding doors and a cedar wall keep things spacious and serene.

    she did a great job with this house, but I think I would die if my renovation took 8 years to complete!!! I've been working on my first house for almost a year and a half now and at this point I'm ready to stab myself with my coffee spoon…ugh. ? #anydaynowmrcontractor

    I needed to watch this tonight. 8 years is a long time to renovate your home but it is worth it to make it your own. beautifully done, I love the Scandinavian touch 🙂

    Not a fan of animal hide but I really like the way this was redesign.  Love that large sliding door.  I would put a bit more color but very nicely done.
