The trend for all things Scandinavian has become increasingly popular over the past few years. Their love of no-nonsense style, clean lines and a muted colour palette has been embraced by interior designers and home decorators alike who are looking for a piece of calm in the modern world.
The more recognisable Scandi style of pale wood, geometric lines and a palette of dove grey and white has recently been joined by its dusky sibling; dark walls, rustic textures and tones of charcoal and navy.
Which style of Scandinavian inspired design do you prefer?
Scandi Simplicity is all about light, bright laid-back style. Furniture is clean and tailored and takes its inspiration from Mid-Century design. The minimalist approach is warmed up with natural textures and interesting patterns. Houseplants feature heavily in Scandinavian interiors; adding freshness even in the harshest of seasons.
Finish the look with retro style furniture, textured accessories and faux foliage:
Something dark is stirring in Scandinavian style souls; a moodier, more sophisticated ‘Nordic Noir’ has emerged. Darker colours combine with more opulent finishes such as metals and marble, to create a look that is more Nordic Night than Scandi Summer. Oversized art prints and dark foliage create shadowy style.
Finish the look with accessories in a dark palette and an array of moody framed prints:
