These Scandinavian ideas are ideal for you if you enjoy simple interior design.
Every home should have some art. Art can do many things, from blend in to create a provocative statement. Needless to say, Scandinavian-style art definitely does the former! While Scandinavian art may be in high contrast, it’s often abstract, so it won’t be too shocking on your walls. After all, Scandinavian interior design is all about functionality!
Scandinavian design initially gained international attention in the 1950's. While the trends have come and gone, the Northern flair has remained relevant all through the years. Numerous design genres have gained popularity over the years, including mid-century modern, eccentric boho, and rustic farmhouse, but none of them seems to be as resilient as Scandinavian design. That is not to argue that those other styles are no longer popular; rather, there is something very appealing about Scandi design. And we're not simply referring to IKEA's continued popularity either.
Cleanliness is at the core of Scandinavian design, and the reason behind its long lasting appeal may lie deeper than the eye can see. Effortless and unpretentious are the best ways to describe the Scandinavian design concept. Even with the most high-end products—from furniture to fine art—the elegance is always understated, something laidback and uncomplicated. Natural materials, exquisite craftsmanship, refined tones, and cleanliness are the essential elements of Scandinavian design. The magic of Scandinavian design is in its ability to always feel modern and timeless at the same time.
When it comes to art, the same principles of craftsmanship and simplicity apply.
And if you don't know where to start, let me give you a few tips to create a Scandinavian-inspired design in your living room:
Your walls should be painted in a neutral color such as white, eggshell blue, or soft grey. Choose handcrafted furnishings with the maker's mark. By eliminating clutter, you can keep the space open and breezy. Storage is essential. Include soft furniture made of natural materials like hemp, cotton, and wool. Complete the look with Scandinavian prints in stylish wooden frames.
Now you can go and create your own Scandi interior.
