7 Elements Of Scandinavian Design That Add Style To Your Home

Simple, minimalistic and functional, Scandinavian (also known as Nordic) design is in trend now due to its usage of rustic elements, focus on natural light, and its correlation to modern design. Here are some ways you can apply elements from this eclectic design movement to your home.

1. Neutral Colours


Calm and muted colours like white, cream, grey, and light browns are a trademark of Scandinavian design. White is the perfect neutral shade as it pairs well with most decor pieces. Wooden furniture pieces with a natural finish are also welcome additions to a living room.

2. Functional Decor


Nordic-style kitchens have simple but practical decor. It serves as a functional area with ample storage space, and wooden floors are a transitional feature that complements the timeless black and white theme.

3. Textures & Patterns


Interesting geometric prints and patterns are another element of Scandinavian design. Add some excitement to a plain couch by placing plush cushions that create a powerful contrast. Substituting regular tiles with patterned ones can also help to break the monotony.

4. Bright Light


Natural light is magnified through simple window treatments. The “fresh air” aesthetic makes each room brighter and gives the illusion that the home is more spacious. Light shades are the most popular choices when it comes to flooring and is usually uniform throughout the house.

5. Wooden Furnishings


Scandinavian design emphasizes on natural earthy tones, which is why there is a highly prominent use of wood, whether on the walls or through the pieces of furniture. Light fixtures are kept simple and little splashes of colour are included in the design to spruce up the home.

6. Touch of Nature


Tranquility and charming vibes from the bathroom is balanced out by a bold decorative element, which can be seen in the wallpaper of the bath area. Nature is an important feature of Nordic design, therefore the ornamented floral frames along the hallway are a lovely touch (also a good alternative if you can't take care of an actual plant!).

7. Simple Charm


The white palette contributes to the clean and modern look that is typical of a Scandinavian home, making an “industrial chic” design suitable to reflect these influences. Functionality is achieved through shelving and the pops of colour add charm to the style.
