Cool Kitchen: Modern Scandinavian Country

Scandinavians, man- they even make country style look good.

No offense intended- I like a bit of country myself, especially when it’s paired with clean, modern lines or a rustic, vintage sensibility. But chintz, silk flowers and a cluttered-up countertop aren’t my thing. This kitchen, found via Hus & Hem magazine, is a perfect example of modern country. Charming yes, but twee? Not at all!

Modern Scandinavian Country

The country elements here are obvious- farmhouse sink, wooden units, touches of soft colour and wicker storage. What keeps it modern are the clean lines, abundance of white, open shelving and eclectic mix of accessories. I love the homey feel of this space, and can imagine whiling away hours cooking, reading or just hanging out here. Talk about a perfect country home.


  1. Hi Ele,
    I am Ingrid and we did Holly Becker’s BYW together.
    Love the Scandinavian kitchen – well no surprise there!
    Did you see the article in last Saturdays Telegraph about London food blogs?
    I had a quick look at the seven they mention and was not impressed!!
    Yours is so much nicer and more interesting and has better photography!!

    Love the wood burning oven (or whatever that is)! It adds to the look!
