Scandinavian Chic : Focus On White


To create a Nodic beach feel in your home, follow these 5 simple guidelines ....

1.  Start with a blank canvas: Think white walls even white floors Bright white is the colour of choice in Scandinavia design then bring colours through the furniture and decor.

2.  Floors: Carpet never took off in Sweden and all truly Scandinavian interiors will have a wooden, preferably light or limewashed floor in all rooms apart from the bathrooms.

3.  Something Wooden: It is rare that you will find a Scandinavian home without the feature of wood used. Whether it be wooden beams across the ceiling, wall panelling or a divine wooden log stool, this creates a sense of warmth and organic texture in the home.

4.  Layered Textures: Add natural textures ~ the Swedes love leather, fur, hides and natural fibres like linen, cotton, hemp. This will not only bring visual warmth, but more importantly comfort! Think cowhide rugs, large knitted cushions, sheepskins, and woollen throws. Add some shells, driftwood, cane and sisal for a beachy feel

5. Let the Light In: is an important inclusion in Nordic design. The main goal is to bring and capture as much natural light as possible. That’s the reason for the usual absence of any window treatments. So tear down those curtains and let the light in! Keep all light fixtures simple, modern and minimalistic.
