For instance, you’d get to know their warranties, shipping fees, delivering (preferably door-to-door), return policies, whether items are assembled or not, and see if maybe they have a showroom that you can check out when you’ve set your eyes on some items. When they aren’t assembled, you can even count on better deals, saving a few dollars assembling them yourself.

But Scandinavians have apparently mastered the art of interior design and were friendly enough to open their doors so that the whole world can revel in it. Even us Australians, all the way from the other side of the planet, can easily find charming Scandinavian designer homewares online to adorn our homes with. If you too want to bring beautiful simplicity into your home, here’s a simple guide to the basic principles of Scandinavian interior design.

Hallway is the first thing visitors see when they enter a home and the last when they exit. Yet, in terms of design, it is often neglected, and even forgotten part of a house. Yes, its main purpose is storing shoes, coats and other accessories (such as umbrellas, rain coats, etc.) but even storing can be stylish and fun. A cabinet with hangers or a storage ottoman (which you can also use as a chair), are just some hallway furniture pieces that perfectly combine functionality and fashion.
