Norm Architects recently redesigned the interiors of a coastal home, bringing nature indoors in a style that oozes cool Scandi-charm.
Located on an unspoilt stretch of the North Zealand coast about an hour's drive from Copenhagen, the house is surrounded by stunning scenery which the owners unsurprisingly wished to incorporate into the design of the interior. The architects achieved this by introducing a restrained palette of materials and colours which mirrors the surrounding nature, thus the use of natural materials such as wood, stone and soft linens in subdued earthy hues with flashes of blue and green.
The shapes are kept simple and organic, the straight lines of the furniture softened by layers of fabric and naturalistic accessories. The latter include rustic suspension lights which could have been made from found objects on the beach and a selection of art and ceramics collected by the owners from around the world.
When blended together by the cool Nordic light streaming in through the floor-to-ceiling windows, these elements create a harmonious atmosphere perfect for restoring balance and energy.
Achieve a cool harmonious atmosphere with stripped back designs and natural materials, such as the Ren lounge chair from Stellar Works, the Plinth side table from Menu and the Florence table from New Works.

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
