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.
