Scandinavia is often synonymous with light wood, but lately I’ve noticed a growing trend – dark wood is making a steady comeback. In these darker days of December, while the snow falling silently outside, I think there is something incredibly cosy about the darker grain. Here’s a fine example of how two beautiful 100% Danish crafted items from Skovby have transformed my bedroom. 
My little bedside stool has been swapped out for the harmonious #402 sideboard in walnut – meaning I suddenly have storage for all kinds of things, as well as a lovely display surface to wake up to each day! 

The beauty of Skovby items is that they are crafted in Denmark and you can often personalise them so they perfectly match your space. With the #402 sideboard, you can mix and match the top which is available in a variety of wood and laminate surfaces. For this shoot, I went for walnut throughout. 

You can also choose between a selection of legs or a plinth depending on what works best with the style of your home. 

Inside, the cabinet has a long drawer and two shelves. You could place the cabinet anywhere in your home, but there’s something about being able to reach books, my diary etc without having to leave my bed. Bliss!

How beautiful is this embroidered cushion? It’s a vintage Swedish cover which my friend, interior designer Helen Sturesson brought with her for the shoot! I’m going to keep an eye out for something similar on my antique rounds!

Do you have any vintage or antique bedding in your home? 

And now for the other item! 

You may recognise the #827 dining chair as I have the oak white oil version in my cabin! But I’m also absolutely in love with this oak mocca edition seen above in my bedroom – there’s something beautiful about the combination of dark wood with the woven seat, don’t you think? The rounded back makes it really comfortable too – little wonder it’s won countless awards. 

And now, it’s just to curl up with a book until nightfall – heaven! 

I have featured so many handcrafted items from Skovby in my home from the past. In case you’re curious to discover more, take a peek at:

In other news, today is my birthday! I was born on St Nicholas day, hence why I am called Nicola (Niki) – yes, my parents named me after ‘Santa Claus’!! I am hoping this really does give me licence to curl up with a book this afternoon!

Have a cosy day friends, 

Niki
