I am a Scandinavian in so many ways, especially when it comes to the clean and seemingly “never goes out of style” feel of its decor. I’m also reminded of my heritage when I see what’s trending these days: furniture and accessories dipped in paint – and, oh how I just love it! Why? Mainly because it’s a bit cheeky and fun, but mostly I appreciate the natural materials left exposed with this stylized technique (which is also reminiscent of the “Scandies” mode). Today, I’ve hand-picked some of my favorites for you , some that include how-tos…so sit back and enjoy a morsel or two of these delicious design candy pieces.
