For those who seek some home decor inspiration, today I bring amazing tips with Scandinavian Design that you can use on your own projects.
Known for their timeless elegance and beauty, the Scandinavian design is one of the most popular styles out there. This interior design, is a blend of styles from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland feature a balance of functionality and aesthetics.
The weather conditions in the Nordic countries were largely responsible for the type of design evolved. The long, dark winters together with the fact that the houses were often very small, caused the need for a bright, airy home yet warm and cozy interior decoration.
Scandinavian design often makes use of form-pressed wood, plastics, anodized or enameled aluminum or pressed steel. The simple chic of this fuss-free style has won converts the world over.
It’s interesting how differently Scandinavian trends evolved from design in the rest of Europe, which generally favored opulent and ornate décor inspired by the luxurious lifestyles of aristocracy and royalty.
There are several elements or features that are “purely Scandinavian” and express the Scandinavian aesthetics…
…greenery which brightens up space;
…maximum use of natural light;
…simple decor accents;
… and finally, bright muted tones and natural elements – mainly wood.
