Jen has taken the challenge of sorting their home on with enthusiasm, she’d love to have a home that looks well designed and fresh. She’s decided on a Scandi design that will compliment her love of the beach lifestyle. Scandi interiors will make her rooms feel light filled and give a sense of space. This style creates a relaxed and harmonious home, perfect for a busy family.

Jen has already bought a lovely wooden sideboard, some chairs, side table and two wooden textured stools.

It might be easiest to start by looking for the right sofa, you need to look for something that will complement the chairs and other furniture. It could have light wooden legs, or just be a similar shape and design. When you’ve got the larger pieces in the room it’s easy to finish the design by choosing the art and accessories.
