Tour a Modern Scandinavian Remodel Boasting Clean Lines and Streamlined Design

For lovers of simplicity and minimalism, Scandinavian design will forever be the pinnacle of good taste. So when a Canadian couple made over their classic midcentury split-level Seattle rambler, "classic Scandinavian was the clear directive from the start," notes designer Lisa Staton. "We wanted to stay true to the home's midcentury origins but added a clean, airy, and open Scandi modern vibe," she explains. Staton, who describes her design style as clean, edited, and classic, uses modern details with layers of vintage and found objects to add warmth, depth, and texture. For this Scandinavian remodel, she layered brass and stainless accents on finishes in rhythms of black, bleached wood, and white and brought in natural wood, neutral, and textural furnishings. The result is a calm, airy space defined by clean lines and curated pieces that reflect the archetypal Scandinavian look.
