Known for their timeless elegance and beauty, the Scandinavian design is one of the most popular styles out there. These interiors, 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 cosy.
Although there isn’t just one Scandinavian style, there are several elements or features that are “purely Scandinavian” and express the Scandinavian aesthetics: maximum use of natural light, greenery which brighten up the space, cozy and warm textiles, simple decor accents, clean lines, bright muted tones and natural elements – mainly wood.
