Trending on Remodelista: Scandi Midsummer

June 20, 2014

The longest day of the year is Saturday, June 21. To celebrate the solstice, the editors over at Remodelista took their cue from the Nordic countries, who know how to greet summer in style: They investigated Scandinavian design, finessed the outdoor (and indoor) feast, and apparently drank aquavit without sharing it with us.

Above: In Rhapsody in Blue: A Finnish Stylist at Home in the Hamptons, Margot visits shop owner Tiina Laakonen. You’ll feel as if you’ve been airlifted to Finland: The living room opens up to the glorious outdoors, couches are upholstered in Marimekko prints, and the prevailing shade is indigo.

Above: Planning an outdoor meal? First things first. 10 Easy Pieces: Summer Drinks Dispensers shows you how to stay hydrated in style.

Above: Remodelista goes back to Tiina’s place in the Hamptons to see how she sets a Midsummer Table. The answer: playfully, mixing and matching all things Finnish.

Above: Just as Gardenista kicks off its Considered Design Awards this week, Remodelista does the same. Copycats. Go here to find out how to enter, and here to read about the prize for winning entries: a limited-edition Jieldé Desk Lamp.
