Scandinavian countries such as Norway, Sweden and Denmark are known for their elegant and minimalist interiors. Their style consists of calm and muted colours with rich and cosy textures that are perfect for the winter months. Scandi interiors are usually full of neutral and earthy colours such as white, grey, cream, brown and blue these colours are generally in pale shades to make rooms appear lighter to counteract the short daylight hours over winter. Scandi rooms often have white walls with highlights of colour around the room, sometimes geometric patterns and bolder colours are added, but only in small amounts. The typical Scandinavian interior will have 1 or 2 clean colours with wooden furniture and flooring to add warmth.
We have created style mood boards with inspiration to help you create this simplistic style in your own home.
In the living room adding cushions in similar shades of grey with different textures can be effective, try adding a throw to bring it all together. If you are adding patterned cushions keep them to a minimum to prevent it looking too busy. Scandi rooms usually have light window dressings or just blinds, we recommend having plain or white curtains to keep the clean look.
Try to keep the room as minimalist as possible, add storage solutions for loose items such as magazines, DVDs and other small items. In Scandi design they often use natural material for furniture such as wood, if you are going to add metals and plastics make sure they are in pale colours or have slim structures. Finishing touches such as throws, candles and small plants will help add warmth and character to the room.
You can create a Scandinavian style by having plain white bedding and adding patterned or textured rugs or throws to add depth. Another option is to have patterned or solid coloured bedding and add plain cushions and throws. Having white or pale neutral coloured walls is a great way to create the clean and simple styles of Scandinavia.
