Scandi Boho indeed is her style!
So how Pernilla pairs two opposing styles to create this scandi - boho blend?
The Scandinavian and bohemian decor moods have a lot in common when you think about it… Pernilla is in love with the basic element of Scandinavian design - obviously the light wood - However, she claims that the key to every Scandi - Boho home is the mix and match of unique finds, vintage and rare objects. “There´s a small collector in me. I want to keep and enjoy my memories from all over the world as delightful décor in our home - I think those things make our home personal!”

As an ambassador of this fashionable combo she´s giving us some easy tips of how to get the perfect Scandi-boho style! Be inspired and...
1. Keep the backdrop simple 2. Add greenery 3. Incorporate plenty of textures 4. Upcycle and create unique pieces
Pernilla’s IKEA hacks inspire also upcycling! The photos below would help you to understand that with just a bit of imagination, creativity and Pretty Products you can contribute to a more sustainable world and of course you will bring Scandi-Boho trend into your home! “I love how some small changes can take a furniture piece in a new direction. For example, the well-known Ikea Ivar cabinet is an amazing product to hack, upcycle and make it more personal. I transformed it for my son´s room adding both knobs and legs from Prettypegs. And don't forget that just a bit of paint can go a really long way" Pernilla says.
