Scandinavian

Style Tips

  • Stick to a natural materials palette such as wood, leather, hemp and linen.
  • Scandinavian style walls should be neutral with white or cool grey base colours.
  • Wood can feature on multiple surfaces – wall cladding, flooring, cabinetry and furniture. Be careful not to use timber that has a yellow hue.
  • Keep timber floors light to blonde to unify your spaces and reflect light.
  • Clean lines in both architecture and furniture are integral to achieving this style, so take a ‘less-is-more’ approach.
  • Scale back on décor, instead adding texture with textiles and rugs and make use of feature artwork in monochrome or pastel colours.
  • Pendant lighting and occasional lamps are also signatures of the Scandinavian style.
  • For a pop of colour, layer pastel or geometric bowls and plates. Open shelves or small clusters of objects on the benchtop will also add colour.
