The Scandinavian interior design is characterized by minimalism, simplicity, and functionality. Using mainly neutral colours like white and grey for the base and then adding high contrast elements within furniture and artwork has become the hallmark of Nordic design. In a simple all-white space this contrast is achieved by adding stark black sculptural furniture, graphic artwork and decorative textiles creating a dramatic and impactful statement.
Warm wood tones and earthy hues are also popular in Scandinavian interior design as they are a way to make a room feel cosy and inviting without using any bright colours.
The Scandinavians are very skilled at layering bedding in the most welcoming way. This often includes a blend of linen sheets, creased cotton blankets and a few decorative cushions in muted hues or with minimalistic geometric or ethnic patterns.
Known for its simplicity, function, and connection to the nature, the appeal of Scandinavian design has spread it all over the world.
