What Is Scandinavian Design?

This popular design originated from the Nordic countries in the mid 1950s.

Top Trends for 2020

Furniture

  • Mid century modern furniture is the most common style in homes - They are widely appreciated by those who adore the minimalist style and design. It’s simple enough to achieve this look, but don’t get too excited and go overboard. Here are a few tips on how to have a minimalist style at home.

Windows

  • All about the windows – If you didn’t already guess, Scandinavian design calls for windows that allow for a lot of light, and we mean A LOT into the home. This not only makes your living space brighter, but it improves your overall mood and makes rooms appear larger.

Textiles

  • Bringing back textiles – Also referred to as ‘accent pieces’, these are accessories and products that bring texture, and add a bit more depth to a room. The most common you’ll find is wool, sheepskin and mohair.

Bring Nature Inside

  • House plants – House plants are now your new best friends. It’s time to bring the outside in, and make your home a little more nature orientated. They’re able to bring an earthy element while adding a pop of colour too.

Bold Accents

  • Bold accents – The Scandinavian design’s favourite accent colour is blue. Don’t try to change it, it won’t work, it’s blue. Period. A bright blue colour will stand out but don’t overpower your interior. Simplicity is always best.
