If you want to create a minimalist look at home, you’re likely to turn to Scandinavian inspired decor. It appeals to those who want functionality and aesthetics without going over the top. In terms of design, the scandi trend is characterized by a neutral colour palette, well-made furnishings, and organic shapes. Through its clean lines, soft and warm lighting and textures, it inspires a minimalistic approach to interior design and a less is more perspective on our everyday lifestyle. We would be lying if we said we weren’t still scandi smitten! Read on to see how you can incorporate Scandinavian elements into your own home.
Cut the clutter
Clutter is a big no-no when it comes to minimalist homes. In keeping with Scandinavian design’s emphasis on clean lines, get rid of anything you no longer want or need to create a blank canvas. From there, the minimalistic magic can begin!
Scandi design is challenging because you are working with fewer pieces, and you have to carefully consider how you place each one. Keep in mind when furnishing a room that you want it to be as comfortable as possible for those who will be spending time there. With these options, you can deliver a scheme that feels comfortable, organic, and natural.
Plants are an integral part of every Scandinavian home.There is nothing quite as comforting as a bunch of indoor plants and they are an easy way to add life, energy, and colour to any room. With our range of life-like sculptural plants, you will feel like you are a plant whisperer!
“Hygge,” pronounced “hoo-ga,” is a Danish concept that roughly translates as “cosy togetherness.” The concept cannot be defined in one word, but it can be summed up as feeling comfortable, content, and at ease with the simple things in life. The home is a crucial component of the hygge recipe and while it isn’t just for winter months, you can take a few notes from the Danish and make your home more welcoming and cosy all year round.
Bring the light
Lighting is a key component of Scandinavian interior design. Our Nordic neighbours spend a lot of time indoors during the long, dark winter months when daylight hours are at a premium. As Hygge is a Danish philosophy that stresses the importance of creating a warm and comfortable atmosphere in every room, these challenging conditions require clever use of light.
