Scandinavian decor can easily be done!

When you think of a Scandinavian decor, you will always think of statement buffers, sideboards or coffee tables, natural elements, and lots of white! Although there is usually a minimalist feel in the Scandinavian interior, there is a lot that is going into these designs. Very far from simple! Here’s how to create your own Scandinavian-inspired room!

White, white, and more white is the true colour that makes Scandinavian decor. White applies to everything in the room, floors, ceiling and, of course, walls. Starting with a simple base colour will allow you to add the accessories you need to make it feel like your home.

Staying true to this will also reflect on the artwork you hang on these walls. Typical Scandinavia art will have splashes of white or be in a white frame.

You will rarely see or install wall to wall carpet in a Scandinavia-inspired home. Natural elements, such as timber and stone, are the ideal textures of choice. When it comes to rugs, again a natural look is ideal such as wool or jute.

Statement pieces are key to this design. Scandinavian homes don’t often have a lot of furniture; they keep to statement designer pieces, and indeed, less is more.

When picking furniture, the key is choosing within the neutral grey and white colour palette and selecting furniture with a crisp clean line.

Although a high contrasting black and white room is not uncommon with Scandinavian decor, here is where you can add colour. Accessories need to be simple and not overpowering as colour is not often found in Scandinavian interiors. As we know, rules can always be broken, so if you choose to use colour, keep it to small bust within the room.
