The Scandinavian living style

16. 10. 2019

Scandinavian style fills the pages of the most read design magazines. This simple style originated in the 1950s in the northern countries and is a hallmark of white walls, wooden furniture and the emphasis on minimalism and nature. Read our article to learn how to decorate in this style.


White walls, furniture, carpet… When it comes to Scandinavian style, there is never enough of the white color. White is the foundation because only it has the power to create a clean look and evoke timeless and simple design. As a bonus, you can add any color to it, such as the one that is currently popular, and therefore you do not have to wonder whether it is a suitable color combination.


Wooden decorations in combination with the while colour usually help to create harmony. You can use fine gray, faded wood, but also dark brown, cherry or oak… It depends on personal preferences… It is important to feel nature from the interior and benefit from its natural beauty. On some wooden surfaces, whether on furniture, walls or floors, they also use white paint, which gives the interior style a more rustic character.

But don’t forget about other materials used by northerners, such as metal, glass or stone, and marble, which is widely used in form of decorations or complementary furniture, such as conference and coffee tables or showcases. Additionally, in the Scandinavian style you don’t have to be hesitant to use some natural textiles such as linen, cotton, wool or leather.

Also, keep in mind that nature itself is the best bearer of inspiration, ideas and innovation. We recommend the peaceful atmosphere of the forest or the dangerous power of the wolf’s view.
