If you are a follower of design, then you already know that the white-hot trend of Scandinavian design is all over Pinterest, Instagram and every lifestyle blog we know of. We too are smitten with the organic nature, textures and simplicity of Scandinavian design and some of its hallmark elements – white floors, textured accessories such as Moroccan wedding blankets, baskets, soft, fuzzy rugs underfoot and of course neutral upholstery.
We’ve found 5 perfect (and oh-so-affordable) pieces to transform your home to get this look.

Always neutral, this white sofa is the perfect anchor to a room! Add textured throw pillows to complete your look.
