How to put a personal stamp on your home with artwork - in a relaxed Scandinavian way


Our design columnists from Att Pynta say a piece of artwork is guaranteed to enhance the look of any room in your home & we are firm believers that adding artwork and prints to your home is the best way of bringing life and personality into your space. Yet for many, buying artwork can seem intimidating - not to mention expensive. The good news is, you don’t have to spend a fortune to put a personal stamp on your home, and artwork can transform even the dullest of rooms.


Rooney advises: "Start making a collection of things you love - from original art, to handmade prints or photographs. As you are collecting, think about the scale of your possible collection and the arrangement you want. Consider colours that go with your room decor or suit the tone of the room you want to display them in."


For the perfect relaxed Scandi look don't be restricted by the walls. One trend that we often see in Nordic homes is leaning prints and art against the wall, placed on the floor or propped on a shelf or cabinet. This relaxed aesthetic works really well when layering different sized frames. Team it with books and plants for a perfect bohemian look.
