Featured This Month, September 2021: A Characterful Scandi Home
Each month we hand-pick one talented Instagrammer to be featured in our Journal (and now you can read them in our Instagram guides too!)
This month, we are featuring the eclectic home of Tiff @buildingthemushroom, a beautiful characterful Scandi home.
If you are looking for a elegant, grand and fresh renovation with an abundance of creativity, look no further than Tiff’s stunning unconventional home renovation.
After Tiff and her husband Paul got the keys to their home, they knew that they wanted to transform this charming home and inject class, confidence, vibrancy to embrace everlasting modernity. Once they had their vision in mind, the renovation began and we can’t wait to show you the progress!
In Tiff’s home you will find a combination of classy, unfussy and uncluttered spaces, which creates a perfect canvas for aesthetically beautiful but practical features. In true elegant Scandi style, Tiff has chosen a very sleek, muted colour palette for her home, with modern black Crittall doors for hints of a dramatic, industrial feel. The beauty of this type of décor, is that it will never go out of style and by simply adding some seasonal accessories, the décor will stay fresh all year round.
No room is complete without the proper window placement (though windows may seem like the last thing to worry about during a renovation) however choosing the right size, shape and design of windows will make all the difference to your home. Tiff has opted for no curtains and chosen large windows that allow streams of light into her home, to maximise the freshness of her interior.
We just love the kitchen. Its bright windows allow an abundance of light and views of the outdoors, providing a calm, peaceful place to enjoy cooking in all seasons. Even in darkness where you can see the stars at night time.
In this cosy section of her kitchen, which features a large, plush corner sofa, a spectacular coffee table and elegant light fixtures, she has included our Antique Wash Tapered Log Basket to store blankets to add some rustic texture to this beautiful space.
Next, let’s take you through to the garden.
Tiff’s vision of the most spectacular landscape garden, came true once the renovation of her garden was complete. They transformed their garden with a perfectly manicured lawn and even used it as their own wedding venue, to host the most memorable day of their lives.
Tiff has sectioned off part of her garden to create a children’s play area and panelled it off to hide the swing and trampoline behind it, which keeps her garden as a fun adventure playground, without compromising on style.
To add more elegance to the genius wooden panelling, she has added a collection of Large Square Rattan Log Baskets and filled them with olive trees, which looks like a fantastic little olive grove. She has lined them herself, creating drainage holes in the bottom to allow the water to escape. What a clever idea!
“I absolutely love all of your baskets”
Finally Tiff absolutely adores baskets and as her progress in her beautiful dream home continues, the finishing touches are Tiff’s area of expertise as she adds stunning wicker storage baskets to keep her bootroom in order. The colours and textures of these rattan storage baskets makes for soul-cleansing storage, whilst adding a touch of rustic texture to her home.
Never have we seen such an eye for perfect interiors and accessory styling! We just can’t wait to see Tiff’s home when it’s complete.
We just LOVE your innovative creations so if you’d like to be featured next month, simply tag @TheBasketCompany on Instagram and show us how you’ve used your talents to style our baskets in your home or garden.
