About this deal

Suddenly there are new interiors books coming out every week after years of it being a massively unfashionable subject and it’s becoming hard to keep up. Today I’m going to show you two books from either end of the spectrum – in a vain (probably laughable) attempt to try and keep all of the people happy all of the time!

It’s pretty hard not to fall in love with the Scandinavian aesthetic. Simple, clean lines. Minimal, classic design. But, if you prefer a little bit of added texture and comfort with your Scandi interior, then combining it with a rustic vibe is exactly what you need, and this new book by Reena Simon and Rebecca Lawson provides an abundance of inspiration to get this look just right…. Exploring Microsoft Office 2019 Introductory (English, Spiral bound) Mary Anne Poatsy, Keith Mulbery It’s not just about the ‘look’ though, the interiors in this book demonstrate how designing a Scandi Rustic home, naturally creates a space that nurtures your well-being and promotes a sense of contentment. The use of natural materials such as wood, linen and bamboo gives your space warmth and create a complementing colour palette of subtle, earthy tones such as grey, off white, blush, terracotta and soft greens and blues. Now the second book, in complete contrast, is Scandi Rustic, Creating a Cozy and Happy Home (Ryland Peters & Small) by Rebecca Lawson and Reena Simon (otherwise known as Malmo & Moss and Hygge for Home. And yes I am mildly offended by the z in cozy/cosy but assume that was for the American market. p55 Scandi Rustic image by Benjamin Edwards

So this book takes you through creating a scheme starting with colour and working through lighting, textures and materials with a section on finishing touches. Then we get to visit various homes which, in similar vein to Pearl Lowe’s Faded Glamour, explore the different types of rustic style from industrial to coastal via by the sea and in the woods as well as architectural and city with country and cabin. p117 Scandi Rustic image by Benjamin Edwards So, what’s left? The meanderings, anecdotes, experiences, epigrams, opinions, aphorisms and prejudices of an eccentric old Englishman. If you are already bored, my advice to you is to enjoy the photos and have a cup of tea.” For those that do want some of the detail de Gournay, is frequently referred to as the haute couture of wallpaper. The company was founded in 1984 by Claud Cecil Gurnay and fans include Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Moss, whose silver papered bathroom is in the book as well as Kelly Wearstler (above).

Introducing plants and dried flowers, displayed in terracotta and ceramic pots and vases will add even more texture and life to the space. Vintage furniture, lighting and decorative items tend to feature heavily in a Scandi Rustic home, and is a more environmentally-friendly way to furnish your home. There is just so much to love about the Scandi Rustic aesthetic, and you don’t have to live in a log cabin to achieve it. As shown in the book, it works in pretty much every style of home. So grab yourself a copy and prepare to swoon! That then, is how I might approach this giant book (it’s large and fat) – ration yourself to a few images at a time and really look. See the details, absorb the colours and note the styling. That is how this book works. Just don’t spill the tea on it. St. Laurent designer Greg Natale photo Anson Smart What I think is probably clear about both books is that they will preach to the converted. You will probably be drawn to one more than the other. You might like both. But I think it’s unlikely that the De Gournay will convert you to florals any more than the rustic look will persuade those who like their interiors a little more honed. That said, I’m wary of any echo chamber and the one thing that social media has done for us is create more of those so I’m showing you both and let’s have discussion about what we like and why in the comments below.
