Style Inspiration & Idea’s – Scandinavian

Scandinavian style has a certain charm and simplicity about it that you can’t help falling in love with.  The gorgeous neutral colours and extensive use of wood makes the space feel calming and comfortable.

The main colours used in Scandinavian design are neutrals such as Beige’s, Grey’s and of course White.  It is now becoming popular to use neutrals along with splashes of colour such as black, yellow and blue.  White is the prominent colour in most Scandinavian designs you will see being used on walls, furnishings, accessories and sometimes even the flooring.

Flooring is an important aspect of Scandinavian design.  Rooms with wall to wall carpet never caught on in Northern Europe with hard flooring being the better option for simplicity and functionality.  Light coloured wood is what can be found in most Scandinavian styled homes.

Keep the decorating and accessorising to a minimum, part of the Scandinavian style is keeping things simplistic and uncluttered. Add nature into the rooms by having plants or pieces of wood that sit simply on a shelf or table.

You can use black and white artwork to further accentuate your Scandinavian theme or use art as the chance to add that little splash of colour.
