Following Scandinavian Interior design blogs is my daily dose of much needed inspiration. It is no surprise that just the Scandinavian interior style inspires me since I am Swedish. Having lived abroad for almost 12 years now, the Swedish design blogs are a way for me to not only stay updated with design inspiration but also to feel a connection to Sweden.

I am not sure about you, but staying up to date with all these amazing new Scandinavian decorating blogs that pops up can be a bit tricky. Usually I spot new blogs either by Googling around or by finding them through some blog lists on the design blogs that I follow. Having stayed out of the blog scene for a while now I thought it was about time to re-check my daily list of blogs to follow and have shared them here with you.

These interior blogs never fail to impress me with the latest design trends and interior design photos. As an example I created the Simplistic architecture blog post after finding stunning images over at one the the bloggers below. Hopefully these blogs will inspire you as well…And if I have missed a blog that you think suits this list and even more importantly if it is your blog then let me know.


If you feel like you wish to have some inspiration on what the thinking is behind this Scandi style or just some collected go to tips and tricks – then jump over to our Scandinavian interior design.
