Now that the days are getting shorter in the Northern hemisphere I couldn’t resist sharing images of Nord House in Australia with you. A Scandi style weekend getaway designed by Poss Samperi who also runs – and styled – Orchard Keepers, another holiday accommodation on the Mornington Peninsula which I blogged about here a while ago.
Though it feels as if she’s taken a more radical monochrome approach to the interior the same modern rustic Scandi style applies and textures from wood, sheepskin rugs and textiles give a wonderful relaxed but yet luxurious edge. I spot the daybed by Ilse Crawford from the latest IKEA Sinnerlig collection which is made out of jute and fits perfectly into the space.
The dramatic monochrome colour palette is most distinct when you look at the matt black kitchen units, complete with black tiling and grout, next to the brilliant white painted wooden flooring. It’s a stark contrast but one that evokes luxury and contemporary living aimed at the urban Melbourne crowd who can reach this oasis in a few hours.
I also spotted some rather lovely linen in the bedrooms with beautifully tufted edges and after some digging I found that this signature Flocca bedding is made by brand Hale Mercantile and also comes in a range of beautiful soft off-colours. Interestingly, Poss steered away from any of those tempting colours and stuck with greys, whites and beiges to achieve maximum impact and a stunning setting for the design-conscious urban crowd.
