Scandi homewares are never going out of style. You heard it here first! I love the subdued nature of this interior aesthetic and I also love the more recent takes on it, where dusty blues and pinks are brought into the mix and lustrous metallics are allowed to shine amongst neutral tones.
When I discovered that new online homewares store, Room to Decorate, stocked such glorious Scandi pieces, I thought all my white Christmases had come at once! I had to sit down with its founder, Dianne Fischer, to find out more about this to-die-for den of Nordic treasures.
So why did Dianne start Room to Decorate?
“Because I love Scandinavian inspired decor and wanted to share my passion with the rest of Sydney,” she tells me. “Especially people in my local area which may have never considered this style before”.
The good news is that Room to Decorate ships Australia-wide, so getting your hands on dreamy Scandi decor is as easy as hitting the website.
I was most pleasantly surprised to find out that Dianne stocks Bloomingville decor – an international brand I stumbled across a few months back and absolutely fell in love with.
“I have been very lucky to find a whole bunch of Scandinavian and European brands which are happy for me to stock their products in my shop. Most people in Sydney and Australia may have never seen these brands before”.
Like me, Dianne is a fan of the clean lines, timeless design and no-fuss qualities present in the Scandi aesthetic.
“I love simple, geometric, shapes and patterns,” she explains. “I love the use of colour, pattern and texture but with restraint. I love bringing warmth into a room which a touch of timber here and there”.
Only two months old, Room to Decorate is going to blow your mind. Dianne has filled the online store with so many unique piece that you’ll truly find them hard to knock back. She also only stocks homewares that she would have in her own home and allows locals to stop by her premises (by appointment) to check them out in person if need be.
“I do realise that people may not be familiar with the brands I stock, and as I do not have a storefront where people can walk in, I wanted to still provide my customers with an opportunity to look at and touch products that they may be interested in”.
Dianne is also soon to pop up at a few local markets, which I’m positive will only see the brand achieve further greatness!
