What Houzz contributors are saying:
It’s amazing how much function is packed into a miniature stool. The example here shows how a tiny stool takes the place of a coffee table, creating an airy living space while also providing a spot for a drink, a place to rest one’s feet or an extra seat when the party arrives.
De Jong enjoys mixing accessories from her favourite Scandinavian brands, including House Doctor, Muuto and HK Living, with Ikea furnishings. Although cool tones of white and grey dominate the clutter-free space, pillows, candles and throws add warmth. “I am very drawn to the Scandinavian style that relies mostly on light and subtlety,” says de Jong. “White, grey with wood accents form the style that I am most drawn to.”Månstad corner sofa bed: Ikea; Diamond rug: Naco Trade; Kruk Harm white wooden stool: Leen Bakker; white metal stool: Karwei; Atlas floor lamp: Woon Express
