What is Scandinavian Design?

For those who crave calm spaces that are comfortable for socializing, Scandinavian interior design just might be the ideal aesthetic. Its focus is on simple lines and light spaces, devoid of clutter.

Scandinavian Design

Scandinavian style has had a massive influence on the evolution of "modern" styles. It favors a clean and minimalist approach to design, where less is more.

Colors

Neutral color palette, with a focus on lighter colors: white, cream and light brown from woods such as birch or white oak

Nordic Character

Scandinavian navigates away from the "cold and boring" criticisms of traditional modern design, with pops of color and warm natural materials.

Design

Only use a few colours - neutral is the majority. For a pop of color, limit it to only 1-2 unique tones.

Natural Wood

Use a lot of natural wood. Scandinavian colours are light, so opt for light maple, birch or even golden wood.

Textures

An easy way to add Hygge. Add comfortable textures like fur blankets or wool rugs. Adding plants and greenery will also work well.

What is Hygge?

‚ÄúIt was never meant to be translated. It was meant to be felt.‚ÄĚ

As a philosophy with no direct english translation, the worth "cozy" comes close. However it is so much more than that! Hygge is about taking time away from the daily rush to be together with people you care about - or even by yourself - to relax and enjoy life's quieter pleasures.

Hygge

Hygge is an integral element of Scandinavian design.

It is philosophy that brings a deep sense of place and well-being; a feeling of friendship, warmth, contentment, and peace with your immediate surroundings.
