Scandinavian homes have a pure, pared backed style that is centered on warm functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance. The use of light is considered to be important, and many Scandinavian homes are characterized by the use of earthy muted tones, honest materials and minimal ornamentation. As for floors, wall to wall carpets never took off and all truly Scandinavian interiors will have a wooden, preferably light, floor in all rooms apart from the bathrooms. As for color, white walls and cool grey and blue textiles definitely gives ambiance of a Scandinavian interior.
Material that Scandinavian style use is wood and don’t be afraid to show it; incorporate cladding on walls and even ceilings to add texture and warmth – use a grey oil to take the yellow away from woods like pine or oak. British fireplaces are usually put a fireplace at the focal point, but not with the Scandinavian. It is located in the corner of the room. Be eco-friendly; triple-glazing, proper insulation for walls and roofs. See more example of inspiring Scandinavian living room design below.
