The Best Place to Buy Scandinavian Style Art (& Win Some!)

There’s something about Scandinavian style art that’s captivated me for years. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not against colour by any means. But you can’t argue how wonderfully moody and majestic Scandi art is.

Whether it’s of an eerie landscape (my personal fave) or of animals, the result is the same;  it brings such a sense of drama to your home. And no matter what room you put the art in, it’s going to be a talking point.

In today’s post I wanted to show you just what I mean when I say how captivating Scandinavian style art is. And not only that, but you’ll have the to chance to win a wintery, Nordic print of your own.

It’s all thanks to one of my fave art brands, The Print Emporium. And trust me when I say that these guys do moody art like nobody else!

The Print Emporium is Where It’s At

There aint nowhere else you need to go to buy Scandinavian style art. The Print Emporium has such a whopping range in the ‘Scandinavian Winter’ section of their online store. You’ll get lost for hours trying to pick your fave artwork from the collection.

From snow owls to winter elks, frosty forests to snow foxes (and so much more), there are prints galore in the range. And what makes The Print Emporium so good is that the artworks can be paired up with ease. By breaking the website up into sections based on the genre of art available, they make it easy for you to pick a few and know they’ll work together on your wall.

The variety of sizes is another bonus, because it makes creating a gallery wall at home really easy. You can choose to grab one statement piece in a 75 x 100cm, for example, and then get some smaller A2 or A3 sized pieces to support the hero. So simple, right?

Versatile Artworks and a Huge Range

As you’ll see from all of the imagery in this post, the pieces are also incredibly versatile. Because the colour palette is quite black-white-grey, it means the artworks can be easily moved into just about any space.

Coloured artworks can often be trickier to work into an existing interior design scheme. But when the palette is so monochromatic, it makes them work in a room with no stress or worry.

The detail in these artworks gives them quite a chic sensibility too. The striking aesthetic comes thanks to founder Zoe Bristow’s background in fashion and textile design. Having worked in both Australia and the UK, Zoe has infused international flavour into the pieces, which go well beyond the Nordic vibes you see here.

The range from The Print Emporium also includes tropical/coastal artworks, florals and botanicals, as well as tribal art and hand-painted designs. I hate them term ‘something for everyone’ but it really does apply here. There are so many genres on offer.

The Devil is in the Detail

What’s so impressive about art from The Print Emporium is that the core of it has been originally hand-painted in oil or acrylic paints.

After hand painting, the designs the artists have created are then digitised. Using superior reproduction techniques, they’re printed as either a stretched canvas, or as a giclée art print. What makes this process so special is that the detail of the original brush strokes is still clearly visible. So it does feel as though you have the original painting in your home!

If you’re loving the Scandinavian style art in this post, you’re in luck. Zoe has been kind enough to give two away to some lucky TLC readers. Scroll further down to enter to win.

      No question Cloudscape 2. It reminds me of two things – 1. laying on my back with friends spying shapes in the clouds no one else can see; and 2. Anticipating a huge storm, getting the wash in then snuggling inside!

    I’m having trouble choosing between the black cockatoo close up and the Highland photo print. If I had to choose I think I’d go with the black cockatoo for myself. We have the most majestic yellow tailed black cockatoos that fly over our house and this print reminds me how lucky we are ☺️

    Torn between the Snow Buffalo Photographic Art Print and the Road Photographic Art Print. I have an obsession with snow-capped mountains (so much so I got married on my snowboard in the alps) and these prints would be amazing in my house (I think the buffalo has won me over!)

    I love, love, love the Winter Elk – to me it speaks of some of the best people I know, who show gentleness, vulnerability, whilst maintaining their confidence. They have a presence about them, but it’s not threatening.

    I am crushing on the Milly The Umbrella Cockatoo Pink Canvas Art. It’s so versatile. It can be used anywhere from a living area to a nursery to a teen bedroom. Not to mention its just an overall gorgeous warm piece of art.

    Love the “Dark Horizon” for its juxtaposed style of both movement and stillness and of darkness and boldness in shading. Love the jolt of teal and the drama. Would be great in an entrance, formal dining room or master bedroom.

    The clouds took me back to my childhood, lying on the grass looking up at the sky, imagining and seeing so many wonderful animals. Better than a trip to the zoo as mine were a mish mash of what could be.

  • I am really feeling The Black Cockatoo close up. I live near a golf course and the black cockatoos can be seen flying past daily on their food gathgering rounds. Even when I am busy i hear their calls, they bring me serenity and joy! Aussie native animals are absolutely stunning and would love some pics of them in my home to showcase to overseas relatives and friends when they come to stay.

    I love Milly The Umbrella Cockatoo. I love the way she is staring right down the camera, makes me wonder what she is thinking. I like art that makes me think about what was going on when the photo was taken.

    I love the HORIZON (SQUARE) ART PRINT. I don’t actually have any art in my place yet (I know, how could I??) this piece would look great in my apartment as I have a scandi vibe going with pops of blue and teal – so this piece would be perfection.

    I love the Highland photographic art print. He looks vulnerable and moody and would feel right at home in my newly designed Scandinavian Style office or living room.

    Oh I’m going to have to go with the crowd here and say Milly the Umbrella Cockatoo! I tried to be different but this really is a gorgeous print. I love the blue background and I have the perfect frame already waiting for her on my dining room wall. Currently the frame is home to an old poster of colourful trees from Ikea and in desperate need of a new tenant; Milly would be given a permanent home! She’ll be amongst great company of other pretty birds on a small picture gallery which would gladly welcome her to the flock!

    They are all so beautiful but I’ll choose the frosty forest because of the mystery it brings and if you can see how bare the walls on my house are, you’d know why i need one of these prints.
