Contrary to popular belief, sometimes a “pop of color” is not what is needed to lift up a space. Don’t get us wrong—we love a good hue as much as the next person, but there is something to be said for a restricted palette.

That harsh look isn’t for everybody. Warm things up a bit with by peppering in the natural materials and Danish-Modern forms of classic Scandinavian design. Clean, calm, and collected, but at a human scale.
