Norwegian Jewelry Designer Mona Jensen of Tom Wood Let Us Inside Her Modern, Minimal Dream Home in Norway

As most design enthusiasts will tell you, Scandinavians are known for a certain elegant restraint. What is it about life in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and other points North that inspires that wonderful less-is-more aesthetic? Oh, there are any number of theories, really, but the bottom line is that minimalism gets a lot of love these days and the lineage of designers that has come to include Oslo’s Mona Jensen are to thank for that.

Tom Wood accessories

Beginning with her simple but bold unisex signet rings, the founder and creative director of the SPACE jewelry line Tom Wood offers accessories for a beautifully low-key everyday style that could easily be called modern minimalism. It’s a look that Mona herself wears well, and in fact, lives and breathes—so we asked her to share some of her home and her life with us.

Yigal Azrouël in Black & White

A clean, minimalist aesthetic continues to permeate the spring 2014 collections, with Israeli-American designer Yigal Azrouël leading the pack. This morning’s show was broken up into three themes, starting with polished suiting ideal for work and sexy bodycon dresses rife with cutouts. Next came the prints: black-and-white branches and geometric jacquard—both intensely graphic and street-style-ready. The third theme blends lambskin leather and patchwork mesh in an array of feminine dresses and tailored jackets—an edgy-meets-classic style that the Yigal girl craves.
