Scandi design is special.Maybe it’s the way the Scandis successfully balance minimalist neat-freak, with warm, unpretentious and inviting. Or maybe it’s how they carefully consider the “feel” of the space as much as the aesthetic, creating spaces that have that little bit of magic about them. Forget 80’s Ikea flat packs,the Scandis know all about good living, and their foundations start in simplicity and turning to our natural world for inspiration. So what’s the secret? We’ve rounded up a few great ways to get inspired by Scandi design:
Simplicity and minimalism is key - “Lagom!”
Scandi style tends to keep bases - floors, walls, ceilings - light and bright, but they also love to play with high contrast - think light shades of wood mixed with industrial style, black crittall doors.
Simple furniture items with clean lines also create the pared-down, minimalist look you’re after.
Declutter where possible if you want to live like a cool Scandi. This is where great storage is absolutely necessary. Carefully considered storage solutions will enable your home to be both functional and clean, allowing more space for the good and the beautiful.
