Natural Neutral

Scandinavian style highlights light, natural wood and neutral textiles for a look that’s easy and bright to the eyes.

White on White

White is a major colour scheme in many Scandinavian homes for good reason. Countries like Denmark, Norway and Sweden have a shorter daylight period and using the colour white was an ingenious way to
“let the light in.”

Form and Function

A Scandinavian inspired home is the perfect blend of form and function. Furniture pieces are modern and stylish with clean lines and no fuss incorporating it to a look that’s a livable, working space.

Less Is More

Keep your look sparsely decorated, free of clutter and easy to navigate. Scale back on accessorizing and focus instead on refreshing accents.

The Classics

Scandinavian style also birthed some iconic pieces from classic designers like Eero Saarinen and Poul Henningsen. However, if these designer pieces are way off your budget, opt for replica designs that can still get you the look you want at the fraction of the cost.
