Plascon House Tour: Step Inside A Scandi London Home
Step inside a beautiful Scandinavian-inspired London retreat. Warm natural materials, open plan living and unrefined elegance are evident in every room in the house.
The things we love about Scandinavian interiors include the refreshing mix of textures with natural fibres and warm woody tones that add a richness to the home.
In today’s family abode, designers chose to avoid the typical Scandi clichés, such as hygge, favouring vibrant colours and artwork to add a splash of style to the living spaces. The open-plan rooms bring together eclectic collections, natural materials, and opportunities for family life.
Right down to the furniture selections, this home is filled with architectural details. A bold concrete-look console table sets the scene in the entrance hallway. Here, it is all about “Functional sculpture” which becomes a red thread that runs throughout this home. According to the owner, functional sculpture runs through the entire design scheme, captured in various American-manufactured luminaires as well as the concrete basin, metal-clad kitchen, curvaceous master bath and the striking metal fireplace in the main reception room.
We also love the natural flow between spaces and the connection that the interior has to the outside. Large glass windows allow for natural light to enter the living spaces and adds a touch of greenery peeking in from the outdoor areas. A beautiful outdoor terrace extends the interior outside and did we mention there is also a roof terrace for that added outdoor experience with a view!
According to the design team, aged barn-wood, burnished metal and natural fabrics soften the architectural lines and help to bring the exterior setting into the house.
Colour comes through in the artwork on the walls and the fabrics on the couches and beds. Pops of colour add interest here and keep us engaged.
The master bedroom is elegant and rich in textures. Additional storage was added behind the bed with floor to ceiling wardrobes in a soft clay finish from Lema. The bed therefore moves towards the centre of the room with a headboard and storage island clad in reclaimed Austrian barn wood.
Colourful children’s rooms are playful and engaging – the perfect blend of vibrant colours and child-friendly surfaces that bring warmth to these spaces.
