- 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.
