An important characteristic of a Scandinavian interior is the use of wood, a lot of wood. Preferably light woods. A wooden floor is a must. You can spice it up with some modest rugs. Think of furniture with wooden bases, wooden wall decoration and a wooden ceiling. By only treating it with a light stain, the wood keeps its natural appearance.
In Scandinavia it is often dark early, especially in the harsh winter months. That is why people use light shades indoors. Soft pastel shades are preferred in addition to the basic white color. Bright colors should not prevail. Also make sure that a lot of daylight can enter.
To add some texture and variety to your Scandinavian interior, you can use things like tapestries, bedspreads, a few pillows or a coat. Certainly if they have a nice geometric pattern, they give the space something extra. Again, make sure that the colors are not too bright.
Less is more
A Scandinavian interior is really something for lovers of minimalism. Don't put down too many frills; stick to a few well-chosen furniture and objects that look sleek and functional. The space must remain open, orderly and tidy.
Plants are welcome guests in a Scandinavian interior. Because it is light and open, plants will look extra beautiful. Moreover, they have a calming effect, especially in combination with the abundance of wood.
To make your interior even more interesting visually, you can use appropriate accessories. One or two beautiful prints on the wall, a framed picture, a wicker basket, a lamp with a rattan shade; all perfectly in place in your Scandinavian dream interior.
