Say Yes To Scandinavian Decor
Feel like it’s time you updated one of the rooms in your home? If so, I’ve got a fab idea of a super-cool interior design trend that you might like to follow – Scandinavian! If you have ever been to the likes of Denmark or Sweden, you will know that the Scandinavians are very into good interior design. And their interiors are so chic and hip that they have been making waves all over the world. These days, everyone wants some Scandi chic in their home.
Think it’s time you welcomed this style into your own home? Here are some great tips to get you started.
Keep It Natural
The Scandis are all about nature and try to incorporate it into their room design as much as possible. There are various ways you can do this. One of the best is to use natural materials, such as woods and natural fibers. In fact, Scandinavians love using wood so much in their decor that they often use driftwood as decorative features. It’s also a good idea to add some natural scents to your rooms. Take this website for example – visit now to buy a scent machine that can add gorgeous fragrances into your home. Some fab natural ones include sandalwood and pine.
Ditch The Carpets
The Scandinavians aren’t really into carpeted rooms, so you might want to join them in ditching soft floorings. They much prefer sophisticated hardwood floorings where you can see every detail in the floorboard. Worried that this could be too hard on your feet? Don’t worry; the Scandis may not like carpets, but they are partial to rugs, so you can always use some rugs to add some softness underfoot.
When it comes to a decor color palette, the Scandinavians rarely go for bold and bright shades. They much prefer cool colors, such as muted pastel tones and simple whites, creams, and grays. You might be worried that these shades and colors could make the room a bit too cold and sterile, but that isn’t the case if you use them right. In fact, these colors will make the room seem very chic and contemporary. You can also incorporate some artworks and darker furnishings for added warmth.
Make It Practical
People from Scandinavian countries may be all about chic and stylish design, but that doesn’t mean they are ready to forfeit a room’s practicality. After all, our home needs to be easy to live in. If we can’t do what we need to do in a room, such as cook in a kitchen, then the overall design has failed. So, keep this in mind when you are in the design stage. Sure, it needs to look nice, but it also has to be usable at all times as well.
As you can see, bringing some Scandi chic into your home doesn’t have to be too difficult. All of these great tips should help you get there. Once you’ve designed your room, you may be amazed by just how great it looks!
