Scandinavian Interior Design

Scandinavian design has taken the world by storm. Many of its ideas are seen in numerous different elements of interior design, with its winning mixture of modern and traditional and underlying simplicity. Want to know more?

Check out these rules of Scandinavian design:


An uncluttered look is one of the central elements of Scandinavian design. But it’s not just the look of minimalism that is important, it’s also the other benefits behind it. It’s more relaxing to spend time in a space that’s not full of stuff, quite literally giving you space to breathe. This in turn helps to reduce stress and anxiety.


Shades of black and white are the basis for lots of Scandinavian designs. They provide the perfect base to build on, work in absolutely any space, combine well together, and ooze understated elegance. Like a lot of Scandinavian design elements, a largely black and white scheme is simple and uncomplicated.


Though black and white is often the starting point for a space’s decor, that doesn’t mean that colors are completely out. In fact Scandinavian design cleverly uses small bursts of colour set against a monochrome background to really make them pop. A brilliant and simple way to do this is to add color with plants.


Natural materials are essential elements of Scandinavian design, none more so than wood and natural baskets. It’s been a feature of traditional interiors for centuries and its popularity shows no signs of waning. Wood flooring will add a natural feel to any space, but you can also opt for wooden furniture, wooden wall features, or wooden accessories and natural baskets.

While the way that a space looks is extremely important to Scandinavian design, function is equally as significant. This means that no matter how sleek and stylish a room’s design is, you still need to ensure that it’s actually comfortable to use. Scandinavia also sees some pretty extreme weather during the year, so warm elements are ideal. One of the best ways to do this is to include soft, snuggly textiles like rugs, throws, and cushions in your spaces.
